Biggest Loser?

I've never liked that phrase, because it implies that you are less than who you are...but, I have joined a Most lost = Biggest "Winner" contest at my gym!  Weigh in is tonight (Dang!  I don't get credit for that weight I just lost!).  I think we meet our trainers and team members tonight.  I'm excited!  My personal trainer time is 6 AM!  It was the only time that didn't conflict with my current schedule.

I think the grand prize is a total make over, but that doesn't really interest me because I like me just the way I am.  I just want to be healthy!  I think the last time I was at a healthy weight was when my youngest was about 3 (now 13), so it's time.
Glamor shot (sorry about the lines)
I did this glamor shot after I had the twins.  It was fun, but it's not really who I am.

They asked me what my secret wish secret wish is to go water skiing again!  I have kept my slalom water ski in my garage for many years.  I can't remember when I used it last, but I remember the last time I tried water skiing on someone else's ski, I couldn't get up...because of the weakness in my arms and the extra weight.  Last spring I watched a 75 year old man working out so he could ski in the summer!  I learned to ski on my honeymoon 26 years ago at Lake Powell.  My anniversary is August 31st.  Think I can do it?
