Thanks Nikki :)
I feel good today I most likely will not be on again till Sunday or Monday cause I am leaving for the rally right after work.
I never mentioned my NSV...Last Firday I decided it was time to exchange my XL vest for a L...so I did and I am even able to button up the L with NOOOOOOO problem :) I love it!!!
Not much else to report really, clothes are getting looser.
As you all know I weigh myself every day. All this week I have been the same. Could that mean I am gonna platue soon? I am not ready for that, I have a goal to meet! Oh well I will deal with it when it comes.
Have a wonderful weekend and I will see you next week :)

The rally was a blast, we all had a great time, that is untill we were leaving, a bike went down and it didn't look good. There was a helicopter that had been there for at least 30 minutes, they even shut it down, I don't think the rider made it. My heart goes out, you never wanna see a wreck after a great weekend and as your leaving to see a biker go down that you partied with is heart breaking.
I did not stay to plan, I am not upset about it, I think I am too lazy to worry about it away from home. I am not stressed about it at all I will start fresh tomorrow and be well on my way to my first goal. All I did was to slow the loosing process, I am not gonna stress. I will just start up again and maybe even throw in a walk here and there.

Not much to report today, the weather here has been weird. I was woke up this morning to thunder and the pounding of rain. By the time I got to work it has stopped and it was sooo freakin humid my hair doubled in size.
ANyway if you read the roll call you know I lost all the weight I gained at the rally pluss one extra :) I knew I would but I still will not change my ticker till my next weigh in.
School started yesterday and so far the kids like their teachers. Now is when I really hate life cause I like it when my kids are home. I don't see my second son but between work and school and C.A.P, he isn't around much any more :(
I guess thats just the joys of mother hood. In less than 2 weeks I will be riding out to California with family and friends, I soooo need a vacation, I can't wait to do this. Well I guess thats about it, not much going on in my life.

Why is it I can think of so much to type but when I get here my brain is empty? Writers block? I don't think so. Any way I had new pics taken and posted and I can see a difference between them all. Feels good to "see" the diet working.
My man and I went to a wedding last night and the groom...owner of the pub we go to often... was telling me that when I wear my glasses I look like a school teacher and what a good "school teacher stripper" I would make...I was like thank you...I think. He is funny, he even told my man what he said..he just smiled at me. I think he is started to realize that maybe people...other guys, well some gals too :) might find me attractive. I want him to think that I am attractive to other people, not that I would ever in any lifetime cheat on him but I just want him to think that other might find me attractive. Actually as I type that...the truth is I want HIM to find me attractive. I don't want him to just rock my world, I want him to tilt my world off its axcel :)
Lots of new pics today of some very beautiful ladies. I love seeing updated pics. I am gonna try to post or at least take a pic once a month. I just wish I can remember what I weighted in the second pic. I know the first one I was about 212 I believe. I know I lost about 10lbs before MF on the Atkins...had to get that just start while waiting for my MF to show up.
WOW I just realized that I weighed 189.5 that means that I have only lost 4.5 lbs in one month...now I am depressed :( I think I need to take a measurement or two...brb :0
Ok I feel a little bit better now. I have a total loss of 14.5 overall differance in my measurements and a 7.5 differance from last month.
YEA ME!!! I will have to do better at the weight loss, I like loosing inches but I wanna loose weight too :)

Ok so I have been thinking...no wise cracks....I think I am not gonna weigh myself till I go on vacation, maybe even when I get back. I don't feel like I am doing myself any good weighing everyday and I always said that it was ok for me to weigh everyday cause it didn't change my moond...DUH ELKE!!! Thats because you kept loosing, now I feel like I am on a platue and I don't like it!!!! I am gonna walk today and since I am home with a sick daughter I think I will pop in one of my workout CD's. Just for a light workout. I fugure if I do that early and walk this evening it wont be too much on my body.
So I have a sick angel home so I figured it was a good time to really clean up, you know like shampoo the carpets kind of clean. Smell good and I love the way it looks. Did I mention that a Army recruiter will be coming to my house this Saturday? Well he is, he will be here about 1pm to talk to me, my husband and my second son *sigh* I am so proud of my son, he has made this decision 3 yrs ago and has not second guess himself..not once. I am also scared to death for him, with all that has been going on in the world today it just scares the crap out of me. And I am still proud of him :)

Ok so the cleaning continues. I am taking a break cause its time to eat. I have been walking every day, just a light stroll. When I walk by my self I do a hard fast walk but my friends are not use to walking so we take it easy. I was not gonna weigh till vacation...I have NO will power!!! I weigh everyday still. I think the next time my husband works out of town I will have him pack my scale. That will do it for sure.
Today is Saturday...the recruiter will be here in about 3 hours!!!!! I'm a bit nervous and excited all at the same time :D Ok Ready for a SNV? Well here you go. I have a pair of pants that I got 2.5 yrs ago, they were tight when I got them so I only wore them for about a month. I kept checking them to see how they were fitting. I got them on the first time but could NOT button them, then I could button all but the top 2 buttons. Well this morning I put them on AND buttoned them up. I think I will wear them today after I shower. THEY FIT!!!! Better then when I got them. I started crying. Then I tried on another pair, same size just shorter in length, got them on and was able to button all BUT the top 2. Thats ok cause I know they will fit in time for vacation. These are 501 Levis shrink to fit jeans and I love them!!!!!
I told my husband that we don't have to buy me a new pair of pants for vacation, course that made him happy.
Well time to vacuum and take shower.

Not much going on, still walking everyday with some friends. Work is rough right now, just getting really to go on vacation and trying to get things done before I go...speaking of going, I wish I could go to the bathroom. I don't veel constipated, just wish I would go. I am sure I would loose more weight if only I could go potty :)

Good news and bad news. I have like 6 pair of pants in the back of my closet that I have had for a few monther. Now they are in the front of my closet and I am wearing a pair :) Feels good! Bad news...I totally ate off plane yesterday, so bad that I really wanted to make myself throw up! I feel so bloated and heavy. I think for the next couple of days I might do a 6-0 just untill I go on vacation. I still haven't "gone" either, that is weighing me down too I am sure.
Today I will be bowling for the big brother and big sister of Payson. I will be leaving here shortly to help out till my team bowls at 6 pm. All volenteer and WalMart will give an extra 250.00 to them on top of the 500.00 they already gave. The 250. is because me and another girl donated out time of 25 hours or more. Its a great program we have. Since I am on the subject of WalMart....don't believe everything you read.

I wonder how many calories you burn while bowling?

It went really good with the recruiters, they were very nice young men...babbies really but they were nice. After they left I looked at my son and said ok..now you know what it all means, you still wanna go in? He said yup. Then I asked if he still wanted to do the delayed entry and he said yes sooooooo with all the paper work filled out and his father and I signing the papers, my husband and I will drop it all off in the city on Wednesday. After that they will do a back round check and a physical and then I guess he will be swarn. Untill then he can change his mind.
I don't think he will but he just might. Untill then everything is the same.
Thanks for asking :)

Ohh of course!
I went through this with my Husband back when we first got married..he did Delayed Entry, everything was signed, checked & double checked, he went through all the tests and such. I was biting my nails on the last day while he was down there and all of a sudden he showed up a few hours later. Said he couldnt do it--leave his new wife, so he changed his mind..and it was at the total last minute.
There have been times he has said he wished he had went through with it for the sake of the Country but he has never really regreted not doing it. I for one was grateful and remain so that he didnt go!

Good Luck with your son. I think it is great what he is wanting to do. Our son has already expressed thoughts to join as well but as he is only 9 he has awhile to decide!
