ok so i lost 6.6 my first TOPS week. yay!
i was at one fair last weekend...came home sick. feeling better from that. now i have to start baking. i have 2 sheet cakes and a wedding cake for the weekend. then for next week (during a 10 day fair do i hear NO SLEEP again?) i have 2 sheet cakes for friday and a huge wedding cake for saturday. i do have tuesday off from the fair maybe i can catch a little sleep then?
anyhow...i'm doing my best but its kind of grab and go on the food end. not good. but i'm trying to make good choices!

    Wow! That's awesome 6.6! Whatever it takes! How are you able to do cakes and not be tempted? I love cake...and when I want a piece I go out and get it...cause if I bake one and have it in the house..I'll eat the whole dang thing! emoticon

    Take it EASY when you can! That's a lot of baking - I would be so nervous. No doubt the baking part is old hat for you - what about the decorating? Wedding cakes have got to be so stressful!!! Keep those fluids up and do your best at the drive thru - they are easier these days than they used to be!

i finally got some time to RELAX in the pool not just go in for exercise. I also joined TOPS last week to keep myself more accountable. I've been pool jogging...when it gets too easy one way i turn and fight the current the other way. hopefully it will pay off!!!!

    I add some pool walking (not jogging yet!) to my swimming and honestly, I find that it is more challenging on my muscles than swimming is! Keep it up, Holly!

My Mum belongs to our local TOPS chapter. I hear that they're very supportive!

    Hey girl!

I'm getting more familiar with how to use SP. So, I thought I would drop by and say hello. I'm on day 3 now. I have continued to cut my calories each day! I'm so proud of myself. I feel more confident already. Here goes...... My prayers are with you on your surgery. I don't know what kind you are having but I had surgery in Feb (abdominal hysterectomy) and I'm still getting over that. Some complications still keeping me from exercise, but eventually I will get there.

Anyway, take care and stay in touch. I will always remember that YOU were the first person on SP to contact me and make me feel welcome. And for that I am forever grateful!

HUGS!!!!!

    I know your medical problems are affecting your weight loss, but I have to wonder if stress and sleep deprivation are also hurting you. You need to think of rest and relaxation as being as important as diet and exercise! You deserve to be healthy, and my fingers (and toes) are crossed for this surgery!)
