Still trying to get the hang of the blogpress app. The photos are in reverse order. Started out with a tshirt I loved but felt like it was strangling me. Cut off the ribbing. Made the scoop neck a little lower. Added som seam binding. It feel so much more comfortable.
I have a couple more t shirts I want to do this to.
I will give you the inside scoop on another one of my weight loss tools. Nike + GPS.
It tracks Time, Distance and Calories burned for running and walking.
I have an iPhone so I can't tell you how it works on just a iPod Touch. But is a pretty darn cool tool on the iPhone. Well worth the $1.99 for the App. I have found it pushes me to continually set new goals. Even Mason will ask me if we have beat our time or distance. The maps are extremely accurate, always fun to see where I slow down or speed up. If you have an iPhone you need to add it to your collection. And if you don't have an iPhone get one and then get the App.
I told you I had become a bit obsessed with tracking everything. The break was much needed.
How have I been losing it. Well with Lose It!. It is a free website and free app for your iPhone. Just be sure to review your privacy settings when you first register. It has been a long time ago but it seemed like it was pretty open as default. I have since gone back and made my settings less restrictive. Having friends on the site is part of the inspiration.
Words of warning, don't try to be a hero and set your calorie goal super low. Just use what they suggest and modify after a few weeks. Slow and steady will win the race.
Want to be really inspired... go to their Forums... Fitness and Exercise... "Post your before and after pics", 3rd option down in the forum. Amazing photos that will totally blow you away. The other forums have great advice also but the pics are such great motivation.
Let me know if you join and I will send you a friend request. Just make sure your privacy settings allow me to request.

Not to mention the company I work for has been in and out of bankruptcy in the past 4 months. Now sold and I will be unemployed by mid October. Teenager we adopted 3 years ago, the one that ran away last fall is now pregnant.
Several of my online friends from a couple different groups were worried about me the past week. I am fine, just needed a break. I gave myself 7 days to ignore everyone. Feel much better today.
Just had to give myself permission to not care for a a while.
In case you are curious and to brag a bit... I have lost 50 pounds since February. That was before the past week of over indulgence but I see a two mile run in my future tonight so I am really not worried about it.
