A Long Time Coming

Monday, April 22, 2013

It's been a while since i have been on sparkpeople. I'm not sure if I was just at the point of getting ready to give up or I just don't seem to want to spend the time on here anymore. The last few weeks have been good. Hubby is coming on board with the weight loss and is starting to watch what he is eating as well.

We are trying about two to three new recipes every pay period to see what we like. I'm going to start working on a cookbook to make that will have all of our favorite receipes in it. My mom gave me a slow cooker recipe book which I need to go through. When I work nights, crock pot cooking is always the best way to go.

I checked the scale today and I am down .8 pounds from last week. I'm now at 368, which is nice because I don't ever remember being this close to 350. In fact, I have never really watched my weight but I remember about 4 years ago my husband bought me a wii and a wii fit and I couldn't use it because I'm over the weight limit. i remember thinking, I only have 25 pounds to go. Well the weight limit is 350, so even then I was heavier than I am now. The realization of that makes me extremely happy.

We have been working on ridding our house of unwanted items. We have moved so much over the last few years and we just keep ending up with more and more junk. Now we are slowly starting to go through everything and get rid of it. I have two tubs full of stuffed animals but I'm starting to wonder what to do with them. I really believe Mike and I will not be having kids, so the idea of passing on the stuffed animals is no longer there. I am thinking of maybe donating some to the local hospitals or maybe to the local salvation army. I think I need to think some more about that, because it is all my child hood memories. I don't know how quick I want to be to throw them away.

    That's a great idea to create a cookbook of recipes that you like. I am doing the same thing. Likewise, I am also working on getting rid of lots of stuff in my house. Isn't it amazing how we accumulate so much stuff. As far as the stuffed animals are concerned, I would definitely not get rid of all of them. At least pick out some favorites to hold onto. Like you said they are a part of your childhood.
