We're Grandparents Again!!

Yesterday we became grandparents for the fourth time!!  We once again welcomed a little boy - what a blessing-four boys!



I had the opportunity this time to be present for the birth.  This wasn't planned, it wasn't my intention, but I was given the opportunity and chose to stay.  The end result is such a blessing!!

Not Too Bad

So my weigh-in wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.  I was down .6 from my self weigh-in last week; but since Weight Watcher weigh-ins are my "official" ones, I was up .8 from my last WW weigh-in.  Still that's not bad considering with all the snow and such my eating habits were rather bad!

A new Weight Watcher challenge starts next week!  If you attend at least 4 meetings starting next week thru April 18th - you get a new charm!  Our leader says it's an umbrella - I'm assuming that's for April Showers.  I love those charms.  You're also to set a goal each week on what you want to lose the next week and the group as a whole is to try to up the total loss each week.  I'm always up for a challenge.

I got a mile walk in this morning before the rain started and felt really good about that.  I have a co-worker that walks with me now and that makes it a little easier.

I'm Still Here!

I know that it has been a while since I last posted.

I've only been hitting my Weight Watchers meeting every other week.  Last week was due to the weather; 2 weeks prior to that I had that stomach virus for the second time; and two weeks prior to that I had that stomach virus the first time.  I certainly hope I'm done with that.

I did weigh myself at home last week and I was up; but I expected as much since the huge loss from the week before was mostly due to that stomach virus.

The weather here has been crap - last week we had sleet, freezing rain a big snow storm......BUT, overnight the temps have started to go up and it is so much more pleasant.  I actually got 2 walks in yesterday and one this morning (wanted to beat the rain that supposedly is coming) and it's so nice to be able to walk again!  Hopefully that will help with the weight loss.
