I know I am too fat when...

Meagan and I have started the year off right. We are now walking everyday at a park close by our house. Carson is really loving going because he gets to run run run and we get him wore out for bedtime. It works out really well. Let me give you a little insight as to what has led up to this point in my life.

I know I am too fat when...

...I go to put on my seat belt and I honk the horn as I pull the belt across my chest. (twice so far) button up dress shirt unbuttons itself.

...I split my pants down my butt when bending over.

...I can balance a plate of food on my belly when table needed.

...Feeding Callie at night the other night, I sat in our recliner and it just broke...Solid wood, broke.

...I need to replace the shocks on my car because they make a funny noise when I get in the car. three year old can outrun me at the walking park.

That has been to motivation behind wanting to lose poundage. So far this year I have lost around 10 lbs. I am very happy with that. My goal is 50, but I would not complain if I hit 100. Meagan thinks I would be deathly skinny. We shall see.

Sorry LeGrand, this was the best picture I could find of my gut with my shirt on. On another note My Brother LeGrand and I have thrown up the thought of trying out for the biggest loser and shoot for the grand prize. Our strategy was to gain as much weight as we could before the show and then we would be able to lose more and win. I think it sounds like a good idea!!!

I laughed so hard I almost wet my pants!! You crack me up. I'm working on this same goal. I've been trying to get mom and dad to do the "Gold's Biggest Loser" but they haven't given in yet! Maybe you should mention it to them.

I needed a good laugh today. That was the best. We can start the "Gold's Biggest Loser" if you want. I'm just not sure what the winner will get. It might be the honor of having a visit from the grandparents.
(I'm the deleted comment. I'm tired and what I wrote before didn't make sense.)

funny stuff Jordan....I think that LG has you beat..he has broken three chairs so far.

We need to start walking again.

And congrats on giving up the sodas....I am sure that is one big reason for the 10 lbs.

So proud of you guys!

Hey Grant and Jarrett are on the same goal.. IT should definitely be a Gold Biggest Loser.. we could even start a $ pot.. everyone put in some money whoever wins= loses the most weight and what not gets the pot... well its a thought.. its always easier to do these kinds of things where there is some money involved.. right?
