Today I hit my lowest since 1998. It is actually my TOM and I wasn't going to get on the scale because I didn't want the disappointment. Well, I was surprised, I lost 2 pounds since since last week. Still watching calories. Not really counting just watching them as they go in my mouth. I am kinda just kidding. hahahaha Seriously, I am not keeping track but making better food choices. I still have my moments where all I eat is crap after crap. I think this is working for me since I have lost about 4 pounds in 2 weeks. Or, maybe the plateau just ended. Either way, YAY ME!!!
I will say Halloween didn't do me in. I have always been okay with sweets. I have had more candy here at work than I did the whole weekend. My downfall is food. However, I did have my daughters belated 3rd Birthday party and the cake has just about done me in. I got a white strawberry filled cake with butter cream frosting AND it was surrounded by cupcakes. OH MY GOODNESS, it IS delicious.
I have been super busy and haven't posted much. I couldn't tell you why I have been busy other than I was trying to get the house presentable for the birthday party. I have been in bed early each night.
I did get us a new puppy she is a lab / shepherd mix. That is what I was told. Her parents are about 45 pounds or so and don't really look like either a lab or shepherd. I was hoping for a bigger dog since she will the girls' protector. Either way, she will be perfect whatever size she ends up being. I have her sleeping in one of the pack and plays in the girls room at night so she can learn that that is where she will be sleeping. During the day, I lock her up in my bathroom. Good thing I removed the rugs. :( Today will be day two. Yesterday I had to throw away her pillow and wash the sheet. Today she got a piddle pad and a blankie. Can't quite decide her name. When I first saw her I thought sugar. She looks like brown sugar to me. Now that we have had her for the second night she is very willfull (not sure if that is a word) and was thinking Willa. My oldest daughter calls her both. I think poopette would probably fit her well too. lol
Life is getting better and I am doing much better mentally. Physically I guess it just doesn't matter how much weight I lose my knees are still killing me. My primary care physician said we can't undo the damage. Obviously the arthritis doesn't help it either. My back has been hurting more now too. Any of you go through that?
Baby Isabella is more than likely coming home next week. They originally said it would be around Thanksgiving or so after her surgery. She is now 7lbs 2oz. She has come a long way from 3lbs 3oz. She is definitely a fighter. Grauntie (since I am a GReat AUNTIE) couldn't be happier. I am sure you can only imagine how my niece and sister feel.
I was given a new (used) toddler bed for Leeah last night so I am going to give Baby Isabella one of the cribs which is currently the toddler bed for my oldest so she can have a nice place to come home to. I am also giving her my old baby room decorations and such. I am going to surprise my niece by having it all set up for her. I am super excited I get to decorate another room. :)
Baby Kelsee, my daughter's biological sister that I fostered for a short time is doing well. She is still in Foster Care, but my brother, her father and mother are doing well and are making progress in life. I hope they get her back. They have until February to get it all together.
My youngest is doing well from her eye surgery. I read the surgery report and it made my stomach turn to realize what she really went through. All I can say is thank you God for holding her hand through it all.
Have a great day all!
