I'm so excited!! Last January, bought a pair of jeans so I could be comfortable (size 16). Since we live in Florida shorts are what I wear most of the time, so I needed a pair to go out some place, at the time. My husband told me to just go buy some jeans that fit and be done with it. So I did. And I put my other jeans on the top shelf of my closet with another pair from the year before (same problem.)
Last night I tried on my jeans and they were way too big!! I pulled down last year's fat-jeans and they, too, were too big. So I dug out my other jeans (size 12), and they fit just right.
I know you're supposed to see your clothes change, and I have noticed a little here and there with my shorts, etc., but this was a wonderful difference!!
Thanks to all my Spark Friends for their support and challenges, that has kept me going.
Have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!!

I want to thank all of my different teams that have asked, "Where am I???". Well, it's been a very crazy week!
As most of my Spark Friends know, I'm a member of a sailing group. Well, last week I was elected Co-Captain. It is a great honor to be in this position. BUT it will keep me very busy!! Along with my own business (Accountant), and being my Dad's caregiver, and being a wife, I think I may have taken on a bit too much.
I have already decided, that each day, no matter the schedule is, I WILL do some kind of exercise. Whether it be a walk outside, WII exercise, or sailing, I am planning on doing something for myself. (I have to, or else I'll go nuts!!!)
SO, my wonderful TEAMS, if I disappear from posting for a couple of days, I promise I will catch up every other day. Please be patient with me, I AM working out!!!
I love my life, but it is really kind of crazy.
PS. Today my printer died about 7:30 AM, so I had to add a trip to Office Depot to get another! What a pain!!!

I saw this challenge this morning and was concerned I wasn't going to be able to do it. But, after working in the garage this morning, a continuing cleaning job my husband I are doing, I went for a walk up to the grocery store.
As I was walking I looked up in one of the neighborhood pine trees and saw a large Osprey and a Red Breasted Hawk in the same tree. Very unusual in our neighborhood.
Have a great Sunday!!!

This weekend, my husband & went to the beach to celebrate my birthday. Even though we only went about six miles from home, it was very relaxing. We swam and walked a lot. Unfortunately, we ate and drank a bit, too. I tried very hard to stay within our "low" carb. diet and did so for the most of the time. Last night we went out to a nice restaurant and I had the most delicious piece of garlic bread!!! Not on the diet, but a very nice treat.
It's back on track today, at least for breakfast and lunch, so far.
Next week, my goals are to boost up my exercise routine. My husband gave me a new Wii exercise game (My Fitness Coach), and I'm really looking forward to trying it out tomorrow. I've heard a lot of great things about it.
Our anniversary cruise is now 7 weeks away and I'm still (hopefully) on track to reach my weight goal. As of last Wednesday (my weigh in day for my new challenge group), I have 6.5 pounds to go. I'm sure I'll be able to accomplish it.
Happy Sunday to all.
