No weigh in today but I did meet a goal!!!

Friday, July 15, 2011

Today is my weigh in day, but I'm not at home, so I'm going to skip it this week! It's very comforting knowing that this journey is about more than the numbers on the scale; it's about me being the best me I can be! After spending nearly two weeks with two of my beautiful grandchildren I've realized that I have achieved one of my mini goals... which was to be able to play with my grandchildren without being miserable due to my weight and weight related issues!! It happened gradually, step by step... and I still have a long way to go.. but I'm living and loving my life as I get there!!!!
Here's wishing everyone a wonderful day and week-end!!!

    You can't get the time back that you spend on your grandchildren. Every minute is worth the effort. Happy you met your mini-goal! emoticon

    Kudos for your wonderful non-scale victory. The scale can weight (the grandchildren cannot). Enjoy!

    I am sure that your grandchildren have kept you busy enough that your weigh in will go well, when you do get home. Enjoy your time with family.

Today's Weigh-In

Friday, July 08, 2011

Today is weigh in day.... and I'm not surprised that the scale showed a one pound weight gain this week, as I haven't been to the gym since last Friday... it's just impossible to get there with the little ones here! On the bright side, I have stayed within my calorie ranges this week, although not quite as healthy food choices as normal... I've discovered its a little more difficult to focus on ME when my main focus is my grandchildren and that's okay, after all, they're only little once and this time shall pass way too quickly!!
We're going camping this week-end!!! Everyone have a great week-end!

Our Week-end (So far...)

Sunday, July 03, 2011

Tony and I have been big fans of St. Louis for many years and this week-end has further proved what an awesome place this is! We arrived Friday evening and have gone almost nonstop ever since... Saturday morning we ventured downtown to visit the City Garden, watch the parade and check out Fair St. Louis! There was so much to see and do and we didn't let the heat slow us down. Everything was great, but I think our favorite was the airshow, which included a stealth bomber!!! Last night we visited our favorite casinos! This morning we headed to St. Charles where we toured the old downtown area... and now after a nice swim, we're relaxing in our room... We need to be rested before we pick up two of our adorable grandchildren tomorrow afternoon for an extended visit with us! It's going to be great.....

    St. Louis is great. My hubby's brothers grew up there, near the airport.

Weighed in today!!!

Friday, July 01, 2011

Fridays are my weigh in today, so that meant getting on the scale this morning!!! I've worked hard this week and really, really been aware of what I'm eating and am happy to report that I have lost THREE more pounds!!! YES!!!!!! I am definitely NOT controlled by the scale, BUT to see my numbers going down sure makes me smile!!!!!
I'm off to St. Louis for the week-end, but I selected a motel with a pool and exercise room, as I don't want to go three days without any REAL physical activity!!!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July!!!

    That sounds OUTSTANDING! I hope you have a great holiday weekend. Just be careful in St. Louis, lots of outstanding barbecue joints there, believe me. emoticon. I really enjoyed St. Louis when I visited there for training. Great town.

In the teens....

Monday, June 27, 2011

As I was packing for our camping trip this past week-end, I pulled open the bottom drawer of my dresser, which is where I "store" my smaller clothes.... from my last successful weight loss venture back in 2006!!!! (You know, blue jean shorts, capris, clothes that don't go out of style)!! When I started my weight loss journey back in November, I was "squeezing" into size 24 and on Friday I was able to easily slip into size 18 shorts!!! Woo-hoo!!! Needless to say, this just made my day and motivates me to stay the course!!1
