Welcome to Lose It Bitches!

Welcome to Lose It Bitches!  This is your blog center of support for losing weight and getting healthy.  Some are overweight, others want to get in shape, some others have been there done that, and want to offer encouragement, others are on special diet requirements due to diabetes.  Whether you are seeking encouragement, recipes,  friendship with others fighting the battle of the bulge, it doesn't matter.  Click that follow button and join us.

Let me introduce everyone.

There's me Think Tank Momma aka Adrienzgirl.  Many of these folks call me ZGirl.  I am on a quest to lose weight and get fit.  I have 100 lbs. to lose.  That is my goal.  I am a Foodie, which is also affectionately referred to as a food addict.  I love food, but I love myself more, so, I will be learning how to love food without LOVING food.  If you get my drift.

There is Dual Mom.  She started this whole thing.  She posted this back on December 2nd.  So I took it as a double dog dare, even though she didn't call it that exactly, and threw down the proverbial gauntlet, here.  The rest as they say is history.  Dual Mom started organizing.  I got my friend Tamara over at Cheapskate Designs to design a button for us.  And I must say, I am so proud to see you all displaying it so proudly!  Dual Mom's goal is to lose 29 lbs.

There is Daffy aka Duckalicious.  She is our resident diabetic.  Her need to stay healthy and fit includes keeping her feet, and eyesight, and so on.  Daff is here for moral support and she will be providing us with great recipes that are healthy and cater to the low sugar, low carb crowd.  She is also a ZUMBA fanatic.  I will let her tell you all about her exercise regime.  She is a resident skinny bitch, so no hatin' on her.  She is here to help us!

Next up, Stephanie from The Blue Zoo.  Stephanie lost 45 lbs.  She has lots of get skinny tips and tricks.  She will be sharing her secrets with us.  Her blog has many tips and she also has a recipe tab.  You can check out her blog, she is super cute and super funny.  She is another skinny bitch, but she has been chubby and did something about it.  So, be nice to her too!

Next, my good friend That One Mom, That One Mom of Chronicles of an Only Parent.  That One Mom wants to add her support.  She is part of my Blackberry Chat Group, along with Daff.  She will be making sure we include Gluten Free recipes as that was definitely something that never occurred to me.  She also will share her exercise tips.

I am waiting to hear from one more blogger, and I will introduce her when she accepts her invitation.

So the Challenge.  The Challenge runs from January 3rd (I know some of you started earlier) through April 30th.   This is for those of us losing weight.  The person that loses the most body weight percentage will get cool stuff from those of us who can participate.  AND better than that BRAGGING RIGHTS!!!

Seriously though, the challenge is just for fun.  If you don't want to send anything to the winner, or can't, Lord knows the economy sucks for all of us, that's o.k.  This is really about getting healthy.  Getting fit.  And feeling better about ourselves.

So join us.  Let me know if you would like to offer tips.  Send me your favorite recipes to share with the group.

This is above everything else a support group for all of us!

Love this, love you!

Still have to find a pounds to kgs converter to make it simple (she finds phone). I don't have heaps to lose.

Okay I want to lose 7kg = 15.43 pounds. Good enough. :) I'll be posting on Wednesdays for this.

Good luck bitches!

GunDiva said...

Damn. Just wolfed down a Big Mac. Knew I shouldn't, but it was soooooo good and I only have one every three months or so - and as soon as it hits my intestines, it won't be around long enough to put any weight on me. Let's just say that going months without a Big Mac, then having one is like an instant colon cleanse. Yeah, that's what I was doing! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. And I'll be going to the gym tonight for the first time since before my wedding in May (oops, I think I said June over at Dual Mom's place). May. I got married in May. Crap. Don't anyone tell my husband I don't know when we got married.

Add me to the blogroll please?

If I have to have my fertility doctor read me the riot act one more time, I'm going to lose my shit completely. I need to lose about 50 lbs, so count me in!

Trac~ said...

Love this website - just the kick in the pants I needed to get myself back on track - it's been TOO damned long that's for sure! I need to lose at lease 25-30 lbs. and trim up. Is there a place where we upload our before pictures as well as our beginning stats perhaps? Oh yeah, I took pictures of me and my dirty deeds in all of our glory - HA! Thanks for starting this - I can't wait to get started and get to know everyone better! :o)

That One Mom said...

This is gonna be exciting, kids! I've got 30 pounds I want to shed and am so excited to get my growing ass back into the gym!

Hello ladies! Thanks to you I grew the balls to post pictures of myself in my skinny jeans. Mind you I am 30.5 lbs fatter then my skinny jeans allow!

Thanks for the motivation. And the baby steps advice I need to get this fat ass going!!

Allyson said...

Popping over from Surferwife's Triathalon Training blog and I just LOVE it. I have my own blog, Magnolias and Mimosas, but have been toying with the idea of starting a blog focused on fitness and healthy eating. I graduated from UK with a bachelor's in Kinesiology and then did personal training and taught group fitness classes until I was thoroughly burnt out. But I love to talk about, love to provide support, and love to lend advice. I would be happy to write some things for you all in lieu of starting my own blog because 2 blogs is just CRAZINESS!! Can't wait to see how everyone's journey progresses!

Mae Rae said...

Yeah, we are up and running and when I say running I mean with a much slower gait then most. Spent lunch yesterday in the gym and today cannot eat because I cannot lift my arms. Yippee, I am on my way!

Neatha said...

Joining a few days late but it will be worth it. I am trying to loose some pregnancy weight and get back to my prepregnancy body.

Aleta said...

Sounds like this is the place where I can find the much needed inspiration for weight loss. (My husband is diabetic and wants to lose weight as well, so the healthy recipes will also be very much welcomed.) Where do I sign up???

Sandra said...

I thought I had posted here (a couple weeks ago) that I would like to join, but I can't find my comment :(
Can you add me to the blogroll as one of the bitches fighting the battle of the bulge :)
Thanks!

Tina said...

I'm in - just a little late joining. I hope thats ok.

Sammy K said...

AH! I would love to be a part of this if it's still possible! I know I'm starting late, but it's going to be an awesome experience for me if I can. =)
