New lip gloss, here I come

Look closely at this picture. What do you see?
                • I really need to get my hair done
                • Yes, I do have a Donnie Wahlberg poster in my cube
                • I wear this shirt every Tuesday
                • I'm holding a 50-pound marker
                • I'm pretty darn happy
Today, I hit that milestone I had been talking about. I was down 3.8 pounds this week, for a total of 53. For every 25 pounds, Weight Watchers give you a marker to put on your 10 percent keychain. My own reward is a Chanel lip gloss that was too expensive for me to justify unless I earned it.

As for the shirt, it's my weigh-in shirt, so I wear it most Tuesdays. And the Donnie Walhberg poster? Well, a girl has to hold on to her dreams, right?

Thanks to all of you for your love--tough and not--and for your wonderful support these past few months. I'm still going. And I look forward to posting a picture with my 75-pound marker.

I know some of you have also hit some major milestones. If you're comfortable, e-mail me a photo of you showing it off to erika.anderson@choa.org. I'll do some sort of collage. Yay success!

When I was young, my best friend's mother used to tell me "You have the prettiest smile, if only you could lose a few pounds you would be a beautiful girl".

You know what, Erika? You have the prettiest smile. You're beautiful. Period.
