Love Overflowing

BLC Update…

Look at that, 3 posts in one day! There’s only one thing that can explain it: boredom. I am sitting at the car dealer, waiting. Thank goodness I had the foresight to bring my laptop to kill some time and was able to get on a network!

So last week was the first week of the Biggest Loser Challenge (BLC) that I am in. I think it went really well! I am counting calories and working out. I think I am actually not eating enough to tell you the truth considering how much I have been working out. I need to find the correct balance. I don’t want to eat too few calories and make my body think that it’s starving and think that it should hold onto the massive fat cells I have.

I must be doing something right though because I did see a loss! The official documented loss was 2.5 pounds. It was hard to get a good weight because the first weigh-in was at night. I wanted to try to keep up with that so there wasn’t a gain the last week. My scale showed a 3.5 pound loss but I wanted to officially show low so there you have it!

Week one was a success. Now if the rest of the weeks will show losses as well! I figure if I can get past the first 3 or 4 weeks I will be doing good. It is a lifestyle change and I can honestly say that it’s been a little easier than I expected but I haven’t put myself to full tests though. Cakes, cookies, holidays, etc. I know I won’t cut out all of the stuff I love but eat it in moderation and on occasion.

Seeing the scale go down is exhilarating! I know not every day will be a loss and that’s ok. Even if I don’t win the competition, I am still a winner because I will have lost weight and gained some self-confidence.

It’s official!

I am going to be an AUNT again!

The total count for grand kids: 
3 girls, 3 boys and one on the way

The funny thing is that 6 will have been within the past 3 years!

Seriously people, haven’t you heard of birth control!!!! 😉

Honestly I do love my growing family. Especially since Emily will probably be an only child. I want her to be surrounded by lots of cousins. She’ll have a whole village of cousins at this rate!

Happy Birthday Ben!!!

Yesterday was my nephew’s first birthday! I don’t know where the time went! It seems that he was just born a few months ago. I am sad that I don’t get to see him more. He seems to be bigger every time I see him. Visits are too far between.

His party was last Saturday. Nothing puts a damper on a birthday party than having to leave early because you are puking. I was so sad that I wasn’t able to visit with my family for longer. I am even more bummed that poor Emily didn’t get more time to play with her cousins. My biggest disappointment was that I didn’t get to see Ben rip into his birthday cake. But regrets are futile. You can’t change what happened. My family knows I love them and I would have stayed longer if I wasn’t feeling like my insides were being ripped out of me.

From what I hear, it was a good party and everyone had fun.  Ben is such a cute little boy! I could just bring him home with me. Emily would learn to share…..eventually.

Happy Birthday Benny Boo!!!! We all love you!

PS- Thanks for sending me some pictures Tiffany!!! Sorry I missed all the fun!
