How "The Accidental Fat Chick" Hatched...

Welcome to The Accidental Fat Chick's new online home!

During the summer 0f 2008, I woke up one morning with a drive to live a healthy lifestyle. Since then, I've made many changes and lost nearly 50 pounds. Many of my friends and family members have come to me, asking about what I'm doing & how I'm doing it. While I certainly would never claim to be an expert, I'm happy to share what I've learned along the way.

So after careful thought... "The Accidental Fat Chick" has hatched... with the hope of helping at least one person and to be the accountability I need to finish what I started. :)

Thank you for visiting!!

Trying to Catch Up & A Winner

Wow, I am soooooo far behind! The last few days have been CRAZY and I have TON of stuff to share. Job training ended, the job officially started, we did whirlwind prep for the yard sale, had two full days of yard sale, and the awards at the gym for the Around the World Challenge. Somewhere in the midst of all that fun, I had to concede that what I was insisting was nothing more than allergies was in fact a nasty cold (bordering on bronchitis). Saturday it was all I could do to make it through dinner without falling asleep at the table. I was in bed by 10:30pm, which is unheard of for me. Sunday night, I crashed out on the floor (our living room furniture went the way of the yard sale) before 9:00pm & finally stumbled to the bedroom around 11:00pm. It was all I could do to get my son up & on the bus this morning... then I "napped" until after 10:00am. I'm feeling some better and managed to put in a couple of hours work late this afternoon.

On to the first installment of catching up, lol. I was supposed to announce the winner of the Cheerleader prize Friday night... which I remembered about 4:00am Saturday morning (when I was going to bed after setting up for the yard sale). So sorry... I swear my brain has turned to mush.

Here it is... the randomly selected winner of the Cheerleader prize is....


Congratulations!! Please look for an email from me in the next day or so.

Packages for all of my Cheerleaders (the ones that sent me addresses) will be in the mail this week.

I'm finalizing some plans for my May goals & rewards... hopefully I'll be back with another installment of catching up & those plans later tonight... or in the morning if I succumb to sleep again, lol.

What are your goals for May?

I hope you feel better soon. Wow. You really got a lot done, despite your 'cold'. I don't really know how your May goals thing works, but I would like to share mine with you, in order to stay accountable. I plan to lose 5-8 pounds in May and increase my steps to 7,000 to 10,000 per day. Right now I am at 3,000-4,000. I hope you don't mind, but I am going to reference your blog in my post today as you truly inspire me. Thanks. :)
