I am a SAHM of 2 boys 17 and 9, Step-mom to 3, Step-grandma to 2. Also a Wife, Daughter, Sister, Aunt,Friend, PTO Vice President and the Best Daughter-in-Law on the Planet! If I do-say-so myself! My Husband is disabled and been home for the last 7yrs I believe that gives me an automatic pass into Heaven. I Take on too much , and complain about it ALOT!!
Ok, so I had a little time yesterday to hop around the blogging world and came across a post from a new "blogger friend" Rainbow Jelly Ramblings. We found each other's blogs from a new "ning" site Twitter Mamas I was invited to join by @kirs10c on twitter (her blog is Scents Appeal). What caught my eye was her post titled "Monday Weigh-In" and as some of you know I used to do a Weigh-In Wednesday post. Notice I said "used to" , that is because I haven't done my Weight Watchers all summer! This is my pattern, I do W.W. lose about 20-25lbs and then just sort of give up. I have WAY more then 20-25lbs to lose!! It is more like 90-100lbs if you go by what W.W. says I should weigh! Well I am not going there...that is just tooo much to take on right now. I would be happy being in a "real" size 14/16 , and I'm not sure what the scale would have to say in order for that to happen and I guess I really don't care!! I just want to be able to walk into any store, whether it be Walmart, Old Navy or anywhere for that matter and find myself a cute pair of pants and a shirt!! This weekend I was going through some photos from our summer vacation to Long Beach Island, NJ and I was horrified at what I saw!! First off I wanted to go shoot my husband for taking pictures of me at the beach in the first place, then to take pictures that were from the neck down!!!????? UGH!! I guess I never really saw myself as that heavy, don't get me wrong I am not living in "La-La Land" I know that I am very very overweight, just didn't think i looked that bad!! I have a full length mirror in my room , but I only look at myself "quick" when I get dressed. So I decided that I was going to try yet again at losing weight, not sure I will go right back to W.W just yet......I have all the material here and will try on my own at first. I have a Wii Fit that I bought myself as a birthday present in May and have only used the thing 2 or 3 times!!!!! I am going to try "The Yummy Mummy with no Tummy Challenge" that was started by A Mother's Ramblings. and see if I can stick with this one!!!
If it is ok with you guys I might just stick with my "Weigh-in Wednesdays" and do my posts that day. I also believe my friend Sandy at Organize with Sandy is going to do a "Weight Watchers Wednesday" post coming up and I would like to be a part of that too. Thanks for the "kick in the pants" I really really needed it!!! Stay Tuned.......xoxo
