Monday 5/21/12

Hi everyone !  It,s been a really busy week . My granddaughter turned one so they had party for her. They grow up so fast. So my sister came up from West Virgina so I got to spend time with her and my brother in law. Watching what I eat I did pretty good it helps that my sister is on diet to. Plus my brother in law was watching everything I would eat and if was something I should not have he would take it from us. I am really proud of my sister to we are pretty much so neck to neck on our weight I,m just 2lbs under her.

Thursday 5/10

Well its Thursday 11:00 p.m. I just got home from bible study a few minutes ago. This week has been pretty good. I find the hardest times I have is at night. I just seem to be so hungry. That when I want the chips so usually I just go to bed to keep from eating. Like tonight I came home and I packed my husband lunch for work and I am so hungry. I just want somet hing crunchy. My husband tells me to go eat some vegetables I am getting sick of vegetables I feel like I am going to turn into a vegetable. So to keep from eating I decided to go and blog and take my frustration out on the computer. But I am going to bed cause I have to get up early so good night everyone and have great weekend.

Hi everyone

It was so nice to see everybody on Sat for our weigh in. I love when we have our weigh in and we get to see everybody and talk to them and see how things are going. I was telling my husband we have alot of great people in this contest. Well when we got weigh in on Sat I did lose weight so that good. After the weigh in I ask my husband to take me to Dennys I got a double cheeseburger and fries.Boy was that good. Then on Sunday I took my granddaughter to birthday party and had pizza and big piece of choclate cake. I know I blew it but boy was it good. It really weird you mention food to me and everything sounds really good.I just cant seem to get fill up right now.Now I,m trying to get back into eating right. Tonight I,m making chicken on the grill I let soak in italian dressing all night so it should be pretty good.
