November 7th

Saturday, November 07, 2009

October turned into quite a crazy month for me. Instead of losing I went from 131 to 131.6 by November 3rd. I was higher at one point but lost a bit before my first November weigh in. I'm not really disappointed. Maybe I should be but it could be worse. lol My son and DIL and grandchildren moved here in October. We drove the 11 hours to go down and help them pack and bring them back. It took us 3 days and then a couple days moving stuff around their house. They are settled now and its nice to have them closer to help with the kids. They had no one to give them a break from the kids where they lived before moving here. Now I seem to be getting further and further behind in my stuff because I keep spending time with the kids. LOL I was away from sparks more days in October than I was here. I also went on a 4 day trip to see my SIL and MIL.

Its that time of year again ... the holiday season. I have my Christmas shopping started but havent started the baking and cooking yet. I havent started decorating either. This weekend I'm babysitting a friends little dog. Shes a nice little girl ... although she thinks shes royalty. lol Soooo back to the weight thing ... there are 4 more weigh in days in November and I hope to lose at least 1.25 pounds each week. That will be 5 pounds by November 30th. That would put me at 126.6. Its below what my original goals were but it will still make me extremely happy. I'll be really happy with 125 by Christmas.

    The time to really try to lose is right now, before the goodies start coming out!! I know that if I have lost, I tend to be more careful the following week. So keep on losing, my friend.

    Well I for one am glad you're back. No more vacation time for the chief of Food Police..lol. No I am glad you were able to get in some "YOU" time. Everyone needs that, at least I know I do, which I got last night I went to my mom's last night got there at 6 and didnt' leave until 12:45 in the morning and we sat and worked on our scrapbooking the whole time.

    As far as your goal before Christmas, I have no worries, you have a great additude and with one day at a time you will get there. Have a great rest of the weekend.

    I wish DH's grands were closer. I only get to see them once or twice a year. Enjoy having them close.

    I am doggie sitting this weekend, too! The chihuahua terrorist and I are hanging out.

    Glad to see you back! I really missed you while you were gone.

    That sounds like a lot of work helping family pack up, move and get settled, but how wonderful to have some family nearby! DH and I think about moving to Virginia or North Carolina to be nearer to family, but we don't have any job prospects up there.

    You are doing tremendously well on your weight loss goal! I would be elated to be at 125 pounds for Christmas; skinny but happier than now.

    You probably saw I was one of three people in the tie for first place in Spark Power's design your page for autumn. I already had it decorated before the challenge was announced. Autumn is my favorite season and I can't get enough of leaves turning color, pumpkins, and Indian corn.

    Hope the rest of your weekend is awesome!!!
