We are sisters, Jamie and Jodie. We have both struggled with our weight as adults. Jodie has struggled for $
most of her adult life and I have had difficulty since at 32 years old I decided to have 2 children. We are both

about 3 days and about Tuesday forget what we were doing. Again, Monday is around the corner!
1991 Audi 100 4 dr., auto., loaded ................................ 2,495
$
The decision to display our weight loss issues publicly is because we have tried just about everything else,

2000 Pontiac Montana V6, auto., local trade............ 2,995


so let’s try public scrutiny! We figure if everyone sees our numbers, they are “out there” in the universe, and $
maybe THAT will inspire us to lose!
2000 Ford Ranger XLT 2WD, auto.............................. 2,995
We have many reasons for wanting to lose the weight. Jodie just wants to fit in her “skinny” jeans comfortably, $
feel good about the way she looks, and stop feeling gross most of the time. My reasoning is a bit different. I

I want to do the small things, like sit on the floor and play a game with my kids without needing assistance to

get off the floor. And yes, I want to look good and feel good!

1997 Ford F150 Work truck, auto., long box................. 3,495


So, part of the requirement for this swimsuit to snowsuit was to provide our weight and measurements. $
WOW, that was TOUGH information to hand out publicly!! Can’t wait until next month when we can report
1997 Ford F150 V8, auto., long box.............................. 3,495
DECREASES!! $
We started this life altering journey on Friday January 1, 2010. Our ultimate goals are: Jodie to be at 200 lbs. by

$
June 1 and for me to be at 150 by July 26 – my 40th birthday. We are doing well so far, and planning on taking
our weight and measurements every two weeks. By February when you hear from us again, according to the
2001 VW Jetta 4 cyl., auto., local trade......................... 3,995
$
bi-weekly goals we set for ourselves Jodie and I should each have lost about 12 lbs.

1999 Ford F150 Ext. Cab 2WD, auto., local trade...... 3,995
So far, we are each limiting our calorie intake to around 1600 calories. Jodie has given up soda pretty much all $
together and trying to replace it with skim milk where possible and I have given up my 6 a day regular Coca-
2000 Chevy Cavalier 2 dr., 4 cyl., auto....................... 3,995
Cola habit, and drinking about 1 or 2 diet soda’s a day. We are both assuring we get our 8 glasses of water in a $
day, and we are “working” on working out at Dreamland Tanning & Fitness, who were nice enough to donate
2004 Chrysler Sebring V6, auto., loaded.................. 4,995
memberships to us. We have each done that sporadically. Jodie likes the elliptical, she can burn a little over 200 $
calories in 20 minutes, and I am leaning more towards my Wii Fit and the treadmill. We haven’t committed to
