Wow! With that large family, I expect you are busy most all the time. There are some great, healthy recipes in this cookbook that your entire family will love. Have fun trying out a variety.
Also, I wanted to say that although I like having a scale around, you are 100% correct that we don't want to get too focused on a number on the scale. Just this week, the topic on the SP Live! meetings was non-scale measurements and ways to see results and progress without using the scale. So, what you are doing fits right in with that. You can judge success (including weight loss) through increased energy, how clothes fit, etc. Enjoy!

Hi, Im Samantha, Im 39 and a wife, mother, step mother, hairstylist, i have 2 children living at home. And i may have 2 more here soon. I am a step mother to a total of 14 kids and have one of my own. YES ITS ALOT!!!!!!! but I wouldnt change a thing... I am wanting to lose the weight for myself, my husband who I love with all my heart and is supporting me, and for the 2 children that may be moving in come June. I need to be able to keep up with a very VERY active10, and 11 year old. I may not weigh in much for I do not own a scale for they end up maken me stop for I dont see the results I want as fast as I want. Yes I know its not the scales fault but I also do not want the 11 year old to think that a life revolves around a number on a scale, Yes she is on the heavy side so I am hopeing that once she is here we can work out together even if it is just walking the dog, or walking around our neighborhood.
