my Blog for Sunday

Pin It Now! Today was a busy day
First I will start off by saying I was down another pound
My day started off very early Dave had to be to work at 6 AM, came home never went back to sleep
Then at 930 I picked up one of my red hat sisters, JD who is without a car, she was in an accident last week
we did some errandsand then met up with the rest of the girls to see the movie "its complicated", it was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a while
then we went to lunch and shopping at the thrift stores one of our favoritehobbies I was so excited to find some great deals and am always amazed how much more I truly enjoy shopping. I was very excited to get home and find that some of the items I had bought hoping to fit into them soon fit perfectly now
I do have 2 dresses for spring that one I can already get into,but it is snug in the bust and the other will be another month or so
then it was off to Heathers TS Party
Had a lot of fun, and left agreeing to sign up as a consultant How do I always do that LOL
it will be fun and a new adventure
until later

MWLC Day 4

Pin It Now! Well today was the last weigh in of the 3 day cleanse and let me tell you I was so glad for that 3 days to be history
I can do diets I dontcrave hardly anything but when you are told you can only have raw greens, red meat, 2 half oranges and water for 3 days I was wanting everything and anything but I pushed through it and my reward was another 2 lbs down
so 5.5 lbs over 3 days of the weigh in
I am on cloud nine
finally broke and fully got away from the 250 mark and let me tell you there is no way I am going back there it is only donw down down
I also hit the 30 lb mark of weight lost since I started this slow journey last January 4th
But it feels so good
my "skinny"jeans are not too loose on  me and I donated another kitchen trash bag of my old clothes to the schools clothes closet again today
it feels wonderful to be helping others while I am helping myself
But I am not buying any more clothes until the end of the month
I was also down 5lbs since last weigh in since the wednesday night east pointe biggest loser club
next week the next season  starts on tuesdays and Dave and Steph are doing it too
we  have 2 weeks left of the wednesday night class  and I am still in the lead so there is my money to buy new clothes
well until tomorrow
keep on moving
