Down 4.2

Weigh in at WW last night. I'm down 4.2 pounds. It wasn't really that hard but for some reason I sure am hungry today. Maybe if I added some exercise with it I might dropped a little faster.

Check Penne's spot out (listed on the right). She took pictures at a wedding. Pretty pictures.

Our annual big (maybe not so big) Labor Day Parade and Picnic is Monday. It's our family tradition to save spots at the "Old Car Wash".......... which is now the newspaper office but will always be the Old Car Wash to me..............and watch the parade together. God forbid anyone take our spots. That's a small town for you.

I'll try to load some pictures soon. For some reason my computer doesn't want to cooperate....or maybe it's me. Who knows.

I guess everyone's watching the Olympics. Last night was so sad for the women and men's relay. Handing over that stick isn't as easy as it looks. But the beach volleyball was sure fun to watch. Go USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yey it's Friday. Baley and Blake are going to the Cook-Off at Cape tonight. Blake's one of the "chef's" for the Bank Of Advance, so I'm keeping Sammi Jo.

The Cook Off would not be good for my diet, so I'm better off at home. I'm sooooo hungry......I guess that means the diet is working. I've got to stay positive because I know I will feel much better if I could get some of this weight off. During the day isn't too bad, but when I get home from work I want to eat, eat, eat. But not this week, I'm patting myself on my back. I hope it shows when I go to weigh in next week. I've cooked more this week than I have in a long time. (WW receipes) Brad's actually liking me being on a diet.
Wish me luck, better yet, pray for me......

Have a great and blessed weekend

Can I Do This?????

Here I go again. I'm going to attend Weight Watchers again. With me it's about like AAA meetings....I have to keep going back.....I fall off the wagon. But since I quit smoking (Thank you Suzan for staying on me) I've really enjoyed my food and I mean really enjoyed it. I'm past the part of wanting a cigarette so it's time to work on the weight. It's either that or buy all new fall and winter clothes, as there's not much that fits anymore. I've tried all kinds of diets, drinks, etc. and the only thing that ever works for me is WW.

I'll not tell my weight right now, but I will keep you updated as I go. First update....I'm hungary.....but I can do this.

If you want leave me some encouraging words, please do.

I'd post some pictures of those dear grandchildren, but my computer doesn't seem to want to work with me. I'll try later.

Here It Is August.....

I haven't even been fishing in the pond yet. The summer is just flying. I go back to the doctor Monday morning for a recheck on my carpal tunnel surgery. Hopefully he says everything is fine and allow me to do a little more. I haven't been able to pick up Caleb for two weeks. Someone can set him on my lap and I can hold him......but Grandma here wants to play and and change diapers and all that good stuff. There hasn't been a lot of holding back with Andrew and Sammi, since they are big enough to pretty well do things on their own. I am going to do some scrapbooking tomorrow, if something else doesn't come up.

Relay for life is this weekend in Dexter. A group of boys from here (my nephew Dylan included) have formed the VanGennip team in memory of Darlene VanGennip. They are all in high school and throughout the year have raised $5000.00 for cancer research. Two boys on the team, David and Darrin's mom lost her battle with breast cancer a few years ago. But Darlene lives through these boys. We sure do miss her. She's an amazing woman.. Hopefully I can get some pictures of the boys and post them next week. The boys are going to walk the first lap tonight with their school nurse, Ms Debbie, who is currently going through treatments for cancer. Remember them all in your prayers.

I hope everyone has a blessed weekend.
