I joined a challenge..

Wednesday, December 03, 2014

...and tomorrow will be my first weigh in to start it. emoticon emoticon I don't want to weigh; to face the facts of my behavior; but I know joining this challenge will hold me accountable so I will do it. emoticon

I saw that the others were logging in their weight on the challenge and I just can't do that. I know it seems silly; it's not like it matters and I know that but my weight has always been such a secret thing. To post it to what feels like the world is just too hard right now; maybe one day I will be able too. emoticon

But I am excited to begin and really try hard again. I have a big goal I need to work towards and the time to start is now! emoticon

    Way to go joining the challenge! I never wanted to post my weight. I didn't want anyone I know to KNOW what my weight is! I finally came to an acceptance point with it. It is mine and I own it. No shame.

Cheering you on in your challenge!!! emoticon

    You will have to in a couple of weeks for the official team weigh-in of the challenge so start preparing mentally for that! If you do have trouble offering it you can always just send it to me and it will go on the report and nobody else ever has to see it!

    Good for you starting a challenge. I'm not much for posting my weight either. It's not that it is a secret; it's just when I fail all the world knows it ; )
Keep your own weight journal and if you need someone to encourage you there are plenty on the teams who will. Check out the success blogs. They help too! Good luck to you!! Eileen

    emoticon I know what you feel about not wanting to post your weight, but I have to tell you that it does truly help to hold yourself accountable. And also, you know that there are always those whose number is lots higher than yours! You'll get there one day when you'll be feeling it's ok to post it. I know you, you're a strong woman! Hear you roar! emoticon I know that I need to join a challenge, but I feel that I'll wait until I really can move better after this knee replacement coming up. I'm really looking forward to being able to walk better!! Good luck to you! emoticon emoticon

Disneyland Proposal!

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

emoticon The baby of our family Lindsay got engaged a couple weeks ago in Disneyland! She and her fiancée Ben have been together for 6 years so we figured it was about time even though they are just 24. She is the most precious, lovely daughter ever and we are so happy for her! They set the date for October 17th; a fall wedding here in WA state will be beautiful!

I love this picture of her pointing out her ring totally calm on Splash Mountain while Ben is screaming and hanging on for dear life!

Her ring; it is gorgeous!

The happy couple!

My Fortune Cookie!

Wednesday, October 08, 2014

Ok, I was bad and ate Chinese food on the run yesterday...I know better but I did it anyway. BUT, the meal ended with a welcome little note from my fortune cookie. I actually said out loud...I need a good message! What did it say?

emoticon Focus on your long term goal ~ good things will soon happen. emoticon .

I like that! I need to keep my goal of getting healthy and making it to my goal weight down the road but in the meantime I need to quit using the excuse of being busy to eat wrong so good things can and will happen! It was just a teeny eye opener and I've been thinking about it ever since! Inspiration can come to us in the strangest of ways sometimes! emoticon

Make Over Step 1

Friday, September 19, 2014

Ok, here is a before and after with my new haircut. Nothing too dramatic but it feels much better! Opted to color it myself rather than pay $60 so that's on the agenda for today. Hope it turns out!

    I just cut mine and donated 14 inches so someone else will enjoy it in wig form. This is such a change, but it feels so right. My husband says I actually look younger. Hooray for that. You look great!

I Need a Makeover!

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Decided to bite the bullet and get my hair cut and colored tomorrow. It is getting too long; I can't do a thing with it anymore and it looks washed out! When I have a bad hair day; which has been EVERY day now for weeks on end I find my self-confidence waning. Is that weird?

Here's wishing you a great hair day! emoticon

    I hope you'll share a photo of your new hairdo!

I've been in the process of growing mine out, sometimes painful and sometimes fun. I just lopped off about 3 1/2 inches (I cut it myself because I'm too broke for a pro to do it) and its feeling healthy again.

Sometimes we just need something new! Have fun!

    Not weird at all. We need a new look now and then. My 27 yr old daughter just had a foot cut off of her hair and she is so glad!! Plus, she donated it to Locks of Love.

Please show us a new pic tomorrow of your new style!!

    I just got mine cut really short a couple weeks ago. Donated 14 inches and now I'm excited to start swimming without worrying about washing and drying all that extra hair each time! Great success to you!
