Heheh, thanks Mog -- while I love my parasite, I love her a lot more now that she's been evicted! I'll definitely talk about my experience with the Leap kit and I'll encourage Optimus to do the same; his experience will probably be quite different since he can really work out and he isn't trying to lose weight.
And yeah Primal Fist, ain't it sparkly and shiny? You know, I used your journal as an example when I was explaining to Optimus how journal-sharing might work. Plus with a shared journal, if we take delicious pics of dinner or want to show off geocaching finds, no double-posting in separate journals...
So, speaking of pics. I know it's weird to START a new journal with a progress pic, but I have lost 40 pounds (or more) so I might as well. Also, I think the "RAWR!" expression and pose in my latest photo are amusing.
I think even with the conveniently-placed DD#1 hiding part of my belly in the first pic, it's pretty clear those 40 pounds are gone. (I still have 40 more to go, but hey, halfway there!) If I hadn't been grinning quite so hard in the second pic you'd see a big difference in my face, too, methinks.
