Thought you'd never hear from me again, didn't ya?

...and yet, here I am. Still alive and kicking. In fact, kicking up a storm.

I've been plugging along - back and forth - up and down - around and sideways. I was up 1/2 a lb a few weeks ago, then down 1/2; then up another 1/2. You know how it goes. Discouragement, elation, discouragement, elation. But the good news is that we have joined a gym. Actually, it's a senior activity center with a full gym, pool and spa, walking track, game room, cafe, conference centers, movie theater, on and on. It's brand new and beautiful inside and out.

We got some ribbing from Niki and her hubby but that's okay...we need a place to walk that's not 100 degrees and it's great to not have all that rap music blaring while we're walking. Ok....so we're old....so what???? We can still be healthy.

I've finally lost that 1/2 lb for good and since DXS is also interested in watching what he eats, it's going to be easier for me. In reality, his doctor wants him to go on an 1800 calorie/day plan. It's been ages since I paid attention to calories, but I'll just steer him in the right direction.

Getting company right now so gotta go....

Happy weekend to everyone!



A HUGE {little} Thank YOU!

I have been given a sweet bit of encouragement from the woman who inspired the beginning of DTBMMBLF! 266 has give us here at DTBMMBLF the OH MY BLOG Award! Thank you so much for this! It reee--hee-hee--ly makes my/our day!

I'm here!

WOW! It's been a whirlwind of a few weeks! I was very busy getting ready for the twins 3rd birthday! We had a blast! We BBQ'd and watched the kids swim and bounce. The next day we loaded everyone up and took a boat ride to the sandbar where we floated around all day long! It was lovely! Then, of course, this last weekend was another fun filled 3 days! Saturday was Daddy's day...he and his friends went fishing down in the keys all day long. Sunday we got a baby sitter and just the adults headed back to the sandbar to float and have fun! Then of course Monday we stuck close to home and swam in our little pool and had a wonderful Memorial Day! AND THE BEST NEWS................................................IN ALL OF THAT FUN I LOST ANOTHER POUND! :) I will admit though that it has been hard. I have found my self nibbling here and there and I really need to KNOCK IT OFF! I'm in it for the long haul tho. So I have to ease up on myself! A loss of a pound is a great thing!

This summer is a busy one for us. We are planning a long trip to Dallas to visit Carb Addict & the Pea~paw lucky for me they both want to see me succeed so we will stay on program. I may have to take those few weeks off of Jenny Craig and see if I can do it on my own. But I pretty sure I can. I have learned to really watch my portions! I've really determined that that is key for me. So what I plan to do it to really "rock" it in June-mid July on JC and then keep up the portion control while away! Add a lot of swimming and walking into that mix and I should be down 25 lbs by September. I've already hit the 11 lb mark so another 14...I can do that! Easy as pie...um, I mean easy peasy! :)
