Hello to all my weight loss buds and HAPPY SPRING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I cant believe how fast this year is going by already. In just 11 days, it will be April...APRIL!!!! Can you stand it? Yesterday was weigh in day at WW but I opted out of getting on the scale because for some crazy reason, when I got on in the morning, it said I was up 2#!!! I mean, come on!!! I had a great week, I followed my plan, I tracked, I exercised...what else can a girl do, and then to see a 2# gain?? For some reason, when I see those gains in my progress book, it depresses me and I find myself getting off track, so I decided that I would just attend the meeting and not count my weigh in. I know next week will be better. It had to be water weight because my hands were puffy. I told my mom and she gave me her usual speech "you didn't put it on overnight, so you wont take it off overnight". I know, I know...I just want it off NOW!!! (please?????) Sometimes, being patient with weight loss is so difficult but it is when we hang in there for the win, that we become the winner, and I AM going to be a winner this time around and I refuse to quit. That darned scale DOES NOT define me and I am going to reach my goal this year!!!!
Its a beautiful sunny day here in Erie, PA! A little chilly, but the sky is blue with white fluffy clouds and all the snow has pretty much melted. Theres something about a new season that re energizes me! I went out to the movies and lunch with my sisters yesterday. We saw the Lincoln Lawyer with Matthew Mc Conaghey (he does take his shirt off too and while not the greatest shot of him, it was still nice what I got a glimpse of! In case you don't know, I LOVE MATTHEW McConaghey!!!! I want to run my fingers through his curly locks! oh...sorry, I digressed! I cant help myself when I get to talking about him! he he he!) Anyways, it was a GREAT movie and I would highly recommend seeing it! I started reading the book while on vaca and it pretty much follows the book. Then we went to Ruby Tuesdays for lunch and we all had the salad bar. It was very good and because it was my sisters Roses bday this week, we got 1 dessert to share in honor of the bday girls special day. She chose Italian cream cake and I have to tell you, it was fantastic!!! I had about 5 bites and it was worth every calorie!!! a vanilla walnut cake with a cream cheese like frosting and then toasted coconut on it!! YUM!
My sisters and I have a great relationship and every month we go out to lunch and spend the day together. Next month we are taking a road trip to Cleveland to go to Trader Joes!! I cant wait!!! I am out of my sprouted wheat bread and I need to stock up. My other sister Chris has never been there so shes pretty jazzed about going. We are then going to go out to lunch & then come home. I do love my sisses!! They are the best...next to all of you!!! You are all my sisters too ya know! :)
So that's it for me today. Nothing else exciting to tell. Have a great Sunday and I hope that you are having a beautiful sunny spring day wherever you are!!
((Hugs)) to all!!!!
