And we're off...


Today Jack just decided to stand up and walk. Claire has been at it for a while, we've just been waiting for Jack to catch up. Claire will stay down if she falls, but today Jack just kept getting back up... some funny side stepping, but all night tonight he just walked in circles around our front room--tickled pink with himself.

Sweet Max

What would I do if he wasnt such a sweet good baby. So patient and content.

Good Hygiene

We've been practicing how to brush our teeth. I think they just like the way the toothpaste tastes. Or they make for good chew toys and they make cool noises when you bang them. :)

So now that I've put it out there, I feel like updating.... After my bad day on Sat I was redeemed this morning at my 1 week point. Ready for this? 7.6 lbs. YEAH! Beginners luck? Maybe. Who cares. Things I learned this week...

1. Be honest and give the points they deserve.

2. Dont say the word "cheat". That means you're on a diet. Just say "That was delicious". And hopefully it really was delicious enough to justify the points. If not, then you know and dont do it again.

3. Special Occasion? Then splurge a little, but if this is "just another breakfast lunch or dinner" then is it worth the extra points? Decide, special occasion or just dinner.

So Jack was obsessed the other day with the birds flying around the Costco parking lot so I decided to take them to PetSmart next door to look at the animals. Free. Close. Stopped by the birds first and Jack tried everything he could to get out of the cart to get them. After about 10 minutes I moved to take them to the cats, and that was NOT acceptable. Jack screamed the rest of the time we were in the store. I didnt want to buy him a bird, so we bought a $2 Beta and he could care less. Oh well, I guess I have a pet fish now. His name is Beta. How original. :)

Best $10 ever spent!

Gotta love Craiglist and 85 degree weather.

Ashley is getting married in a few months, and my dress is 2 sized too small. So I joined up. But today was kind of a bad day... Went to my meeting this morning, and in three days I guess I expected to loose 30 lbs. I hadnt lost ANYTHING. I know, unrealistic. But then, I went to pick up a stroller I bought on craiglist and the little girl asked me if I had a baby in my tummy! I guess today wasnt the best day. But Im putting this out there so people know and it will motivate me to make it. Gotta get in that dress :)
