It's Saturday

Ahhh.... it's Saturday morning. I was up early and somewhat cleaned my disaster of a house. My husband is out shopping and my son is a muddy mess out in the yard. Last time I checked, Danny's face was covered with camo hunting "make up." Great - its going to take a 1/2 of a jar of vaseline to get it off. I'm waiting for a pot of water to boil to make pasta for part of the lunch I am making for me and my mom. I'm making a crabmeat pasta salad along with a spinach, tomato and cucumber salad. Somethings up with me because I've been on a spinach kick.

Me, my mom and sister are all doing weight watchers. My sister and I joined 10 weeks ago. I've lost almost 15 pounds, my sister however, is kicking some major butt. She has lost almost 20. She had reached her 10% goal and it is noticeable. I'm glad we are doing it together. My mom joined a few weeks ago and has lost just under 5 pounds. I am waiting for the weight watchers points/recipe builder to download so I can figure out the points for our lunch. 15 pounds is my first goal, followed by 30 for the second, then 45 etc... I have a lot to lose! And it is going to take a long time. I've decided that this is for life. I NEED to do this for myself first. I don't think I have ever done anything for myself before. I feel I am a very unselfish person, but my husband on the other hand says I am the most selfish person he has ever met. I believe he feels that way because of his insecurities in life and his inability to be able to give freely and not expect anything in return. Don't get me wrong, I love him dearly, I would be lost without him, but he can not see outside the box, literally! very big first goal is 100 pounds. I have 85 more to go. We'll see what happens after that.

I'm off to start lunch now. Pens play in 2 hours and 14 minutes! Sid the Kid will be out on the ice. I just love him! GO PENS!!!!!

  1. I wish you strength on your weight losing adventure. My mom and I are on a kick too! She passed me by long ago-she lost 20 lbs and 13 inches FAST-the right way and all but geez! I am steadily losing and feel great! I cut out CHEESE almost entirely. I love it but recently found out I have high cholesterol. ughhh. I cut back big time on bread too. What a difference it has made. Go on spinach!! I love it! Best of luck, : ) Jenn
