I've had the best week! I spent 3 weeks in May traveling to Missouri and DC so that my son could meet his grandparents, and I've been home this week and it's been SO wonderful to be with my husband again! And I was excited that I didn't gain any weight while I was gone. I've been cooking a lot of yummy, healthy meals this week. And yesterday I planted a garden! It's just been a great week.
I lost 78 pounds with SparkPeople and I've gained most of it back because I didn't make a PERMANENT lifestyle change; I'm back because I know the support here is an essential component to success. I'm practicing the EAT TO LIVE lifestyle and feeling healthier and happier every single day.

My baby bear as I like to call him has a yuck of a cold this weekend! He is just miserable. I am doing alright. It has been a rough week but I am making some good changes and with that things are looking up!

Hey ladies! It's Sunday, May 30th, and I just realized that I actually have a couple of seconds to check in and post a weekly chat! WOO HOO! My life feels like it's finally starting to slow down so I will hopefully be able to get on here more often. I have officially given notice at my job that my last day will be Aug. 20th. Scary as heck but just something I have to do. Am I nuts? Probably but I have faith that I will be successful and I'm determined to make it work! On that note, if anyone is interested in buying a Miche Bag or some Cookie Lee jewelry, please feel free to send me a SparkMail! LOL!
How are you all doing? I hope you are all having fun on this long Memorial Day week-end! I have Tuesday off too...yay! I think I'm going to go to the local parenting website and see what's going on for Memorial Day to find something to do with the kids. I think a parade is in order!!
Hope you are all doing well!
