I almost missed it

Monday, July 04, 2011

I had a major milestone, and I almost missed it! When I lost those 3 lbs. last week I officially went from being obese (on the bmi scale) to being overweight! I never thought I'd be happy to be overweight, but I am haha!

The only other thing I really have to report right now is that my garden is awesome!I think I'll upload a picture in a few min. actually. I'm so proud that my garden is not only living, it's THRIVING! And it's my first year ever doing one too. Which makes me feel awesome. Mine's doing 10x better than my neighbor who has been growing things for years, and of course we have the same soil and did everything the same pretty much, so it's not that. I'm just sooo excited. Also, I canned for the first time today. I have 5 jars of green beans haha. And for those of you who know about canning... it was so rewarding to hear them "pop"! I know I'm going on about it, but I'm truly excited and proud.

I'm grateful that I have so much to be grateful for. It makes the blows of the bad news (and more and more bad news) be just a little softer. I keep reminding myself that with us doing what we're doing there's no way it'll stay this way forever. It may take years, but we'll eventually catch up and hopefully will even be a little ahead!

Thanks for reading everyone!

    OOoooh! I'm jealous of the garden. I've managed to not kill any of my herbs or flowers so far this year, which is progress for me. I'm hoping to work my way up to veggies in the next few years - and maybe add a fruit tree in my yard. Of course, then I'll be hitting you up for canning lessons. Way to be an awesome pioneer mom!

    YAY for you! Canning is a lost art that I wish more people did! Both sets of my in-laws can and I'm going to learn so that I can pass it on when I have children! Can't wait to see a pic of your beautiful garden! Keep up the good work!

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sooo proud of you! Being overweight is definitely something to dance about! Did you know that the female AVERAGE BMI in the USA is 26.5!! I keep looking at the number and thinking how close to average I FINALLY am!
