No, I am not having twins...
But I did go to a Minnesota Twins baseball game yesterday. This is their inaugural season at the new Target Field. It is a beautiful stadium. I am not a real huge baseball fan, but I wanted to see the new field.
The Twins played the Milwaukee Brewers and lost 3-4. Prince Fielder, a Brewers player, hit a home run and I got the ball! Didn't really even know that it was coming right at me as I was busy buying some kettle corn. My daughter's boyfriend put his glove in front of my head and knocked the ball down under my seat!
My friends and family said I had to throw it back as you just don't keep a home run ball that your opponent hit! So I tossed it to the Twins' right fielder, Cuddyer. Here today...Gone tomorrow!
We had a fun day enjoying the game and had a little excitement to boot!

A male cousin wondered what I was doing with my clothes that are now too big. He jokingly said he could use some new clothes and they might fit him. This conversation was going on with all female relatives around the table.
I told him that I had boxed a lot of them up and given them to the Epilepsy Foundation, as they come and pick them up from your curbside. One of the females around the table had a look of disdain and didn't think that was such a good idea. You might need them. What if you gain weight back again, she said.
I just said that I had worked too hard and wasn't planning on gaining that amount of weight back ever again. I have kept a few things that were really new and are maybe 1 to 2 sizes bigger than what I am wearing now.
Her doubts gave me a mixed reaction. I felt a little anger and resentment, some hurt, and doubt.
Anyhow, it is too late now....they are gone for good. But, I am still not sure how to answer the question??? Get rid of? or Not get rid of?

Today I have not been bothered by that "worry wart" fellow who sits on my shoulder and whispers nonsense to me. Some days I wonder if there will ever be a time that you don't worry about something. It tends to be a problem for me some days. My DH calls me a "worry wart".
The "worry wart" fellow has been known to cause sleepless nights, restless nights, short-temperedness (is that a word?), improper eating habits, pacing, day dreaming, and argumentative behavior just to name a few things!
For example, does a parent ever stop worrying about their children? I find myself, as I have aged, less equipped to handle the job of worrying. Worrying can cause me to be on edge. Lately the "worry wart" fellow makes me wonder if I am able to maintain my weight loss or not? I have been on edge about it this week. I feel it is causing me to want to eat too many bad things. I have been staying within my calorie range and exercising everyday, but I am still worrying.
I need to come up with a way to ease my fears and be less anxious. I could use some suggestions on how to go about doing that. Is my confidence slipping? I still feel like I am determined in my quest to be healthy, but fear that my worrying will make me slip up.
Well, those are my thoughts for today. One new goal I have set for myself is to work on writing more Shlogs! This is it for today. Enjoy your Sunday tomorrow everyone!

Is it my imagination, or has the "WHEEL" been loaded with bigger numbers for a few days?
Well, mine has been...but it hasn't helped my cause. Even the law of averages hasn't helped me in my spins. Just looking at my friend feed for today showed me that no one has spun less than a TEN! What is going on? Has "BIG BROTHER" been reading our updates?
Will somebody PLEASE tell me what is going on?
P.S. I rest my case....even I spun a TEN today. So, I repeat...what is going on?
