Thank-you, Toni!

Isn't this card just the cutest ever??? If you're saying to yourself that you've seen that card somewhere before,'s probably because you have. Toni made it & she posted it on her website a few weeks ago :) She posted about it here, but I had no idea that she was actually going to send it to me. Thank-you so much, Toni! It truly brightened my day as well as the stuff you sent me below:
Toni knew how much I've been wanting to do WW to boost my weightloss, so she sent me the books on it as well as a journal & Points Finder/Booster. I think this is exactly what I need to push myself, I know it is! Just looking through the books tonight made me realize just how much overeating I have been doing! It's truly scary! And a huge wake-up call! I'm going to be doing the flex plan using the points. I sat down & figured out how many points both Jim & I are allowed a day & I'm allowed 34 while he's allowed 38. Hey, what's up with that??? Why do men get more points? I know, I know.....because they're men! LOL Thank-you, thank-you, THANK-YOU Toni! You ROCK! :)

Today was supposed to be my weekly weigh-in day, but I lost track of the days this week & forgot to weigh myself first thing this morning. Then by the time I remembered, I was afraid to jump on the scale after eating breakfast, so it'll have to wait until tomorrow morning. I'm not really getting my hopes up for a good weigh-in this week as I've been kinda depressed & eating more than I should have. Plus the past 2 days, I haven't been able to get motivated to work out when I go to the gym for some reason. I also haven't been sleeping very good, so I'm sure that has something to do with my lack of energy right now. ETA update: I just weighed myself this morning & I've lost another whole pound :) for a total of 11.2 lbs. so far! WOOHOO!!!

I did go shopping at Kohls the other day for some more work-out clothes & I was able to get into an extra large pant :) You have no idea how much that means! It may sound huge to some people, but to me, after being in 1x's for what seems like forever, this was a MAJOR deal! And I placed an order with JCPenney the other day that arrived today for some XL tops & pants & they all fit as well :) So although the pounds aren't coming off that fast, I know I'm still losing inches & I refuse to give up! I'm in this for the long haul!

I guess I should brag a little bit about my dh, too. He's lost 14 lbs. so far (which is more than me.....BRAT! LOL). I'm so proud of him! But why do men lose weight faster than women??? It's just not fair, I tell ya! Not fair at all!

Here's to a wonderful weekend,

isn't it amazing how much we overeat? Congrats on the weight loss...Jim too! You guys are doing awesome!

Janet, aka JP said...'re doing great with your exercise plan! Keep going...slow and steady wins the race!

I've been "working out" (ha ha!) at the fitness place for about 4 months now. I'm not keeping track of weight loss but am watching clothes size. I've gone down 2 sizes, so when you say you're excited, I totally understand that!! It was fun to buy a couple of things in my new size!

Keep up the great work!
