Good evening, all! I've been out and about all day. It was a major testing of my faith today - son took his car on a semi long trip about 50 miles round trip on the freeways with interchanges and everything! I was praying and stressing all day; but he came home safe and sound so we both passed a milestone today.

Later we are all going to a little league playoff game for our friends' son - that should be fun!

Tracy, glad your birthday was great! Good wishes for your mom for Monday.

Shelly - you must look fantastic! I always feel so great when I leave the salon. At least it's summer so you should be able to find some cute sandles.

Shannon - Hi!

Mom6 - I love our summer thunderstorms but I always worry about our roof.

Take care of your hubbies for Father's Day tomorrow and have a great rest of your weekend!

~Zoe emoticon

Merry Christmas!

Morning ladies! I had a great birthday. My little boy and I played and colored. Applebees went well too. I, amazingly enough, didn't go over calories, but I REALLY came close and it was all mostly at dinner. But I DID refuse dessert and I only drank water. But it is my birthday, so I'm not going to be hard on myself.

We went with my Mom to the cardiologist yesterday and with our family history of heart problems and her recent scares, he feels it is safest and best to do a heart cath to be CERTAIN if there is or is not a problem rather than a stress test that might not detect the problem or could cause more damage. So we are going to do that on Monday.

I have a wedding to go to this afternoon and we have a heat advisory out for the entire weekend. So it looks like lil man and daddy will be sitting at home since it'll be so hot and they're my friends. So not looking forward to that either. I've discovered GOBS of ants in my kitchen. So, I'll be scouring that down with peppermint and vinegar.

Mom6- Congrats on your weightloss! :D That's awesome. And have fun at your cookout later.

Shelly- Have fun pampering yourself. You've earned it!

Rachel- Happy birthday!

Shannon- Good morning!

Mitchell- I hope everything is going well your way! I know your presentation is soon, I hope you rock it!

Rachael - HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you have a fantastic day today!

Mom6 - Congrats on the 2.5 lb loss! That is awesome. I completely understand about being between sizes. I'm between 10-12 also. However I am wearing all 14's because I don't own any 12s in summer clothes and I don't want to buy anything. I have lots of 10s though and I can only fit into a couple of them. My oldest helped me put safety pins in my clothes yesterday to keep me from having saggy butt. lol Have you tried Spanx or Flexees or Jockeys type under garmets? I have always used them in the past just to help smooth lumps and bumps out and they help me fit into clothes that are a little snug. It might be worth the cash, although Spanx can be really pricey. The other brands are good options and I think Target offers a Spanx made for Target product.

I'm leaving soon to get my hair cut and colored and my brows waxed. Its been too long for both, I have a forest growing above my eyes. I've decided to make my hair lighter than what I am now. I'm currently medium-dark brown. Not sure if I'll go totally blonde but certainly in that direction. Then its off to find a pair of flats for the wedding. I don't own a single pair and I can't wear heals because of this stinkin' muscle tear. Grrrrr! Then back home, change and off to the crawfish boil. I won't eat the crawfish, its too much work. lol I've had it once when I was in NO but that was plenty for me. I still haven't come up with a dish to bring. I'll leave that up to my husband to figure out. He just doesn't know it yet. LOL

Have a great Saturday ladies!!!

Happy Saturday to you! Congrats on a good weigh in! I have lost about the same since we started, and I think this may work for me just because I feel great, I am not over exercised and the scale is not as important to me as it once was (thanks to the tape measure)Here is to a healthy, happy weekend (the weekends are always the hardest to eat healthy!) Good Luck on your weigh ins this week everyone!

Hey, ladies. Happy Saturday:) Weigh-in went well yesterday - down 2.5 which is about ALL my body will let go of in one week. Now for the next two weeks where the scale will refuse to move, lol. We had bad storms here in the Midwest last night and my 4 yr. old woke up several times:( We have a cook-out at my son's later so have to go shopping and get general cleaning done today. Haven't decided what we're doing for Father's Day yet...zoo or church picnic?:) Blessings for a great day...BE GOOD TO...YOU!!

Rachel - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Wishing you a wonderful day!

Tricia - goodluck with the dog. We're down to just 2 cats now. We had 2 dogs and 3 cats at one point, lol. I swear though, one cat will outlive me just because I'm allergic to it. He's 25 and still going strong, lol. Have a good day bowling tmw!

Cecelia - I'll try the choco ones. Also..I can't blame you about Cracker Barrel! I love the pecan pancakes and have to steer clear:) I know the ARMY can be tough....but you are so right, it's up to us to find solutions. Prayers to you, too. *had to laugh at 13 yr. old jean panties:)

Tracy - so sorry I didn't get to comment yesterday. Happy "be-lated" BIRTHDAY! Hope it was good!

Shelly - GO ONE POUND:) With ALL that's been going on for you, you MUST be eating well! Good for you.

Zoe - I love the zoo. Keep at it; I know it is a process here and I'm learning things about myself and the choices I make everyday.

Has anyone heard from Mitchell? OH MITCHELL..we're missin you!! Wonder if she's having too much fun at her boyfriends that she decided to neglect us women:)
That's the hard part about online relationships. It's hard to distinguish when others really do need some help unless they post/comment:(

Be back a little later - Have to FIND something to wear to my 30th (oh!) reunion next weekend; it could take a while as I'm between a 10 and a 12 and don't have time to alter anything:(

With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
