Default Happy Birthday, tolose85 (Gretchen)!

Happy Birthday to Gretchen (aka Carson's mama and motorcycle mama )! Although her presence here has been sorely missed, we look forward to her return to regular posting so we can once again get caught up in her enthusiastic and positive outlook. This girl feels that losing weight is so much fun, she gained it back to enjoy the journey all over again! I have no doubt she'll be even more successful than the first time around (unless another interrupts). She's one of our biggest and supporters and a constant source of inspiration and motivation. As I often say "Its hard to feel down when Gretchen's around!". It's your day ~ enjoy it and make sure Jeremy and Carson treat you like a . Best wishes for a wonderful day and even more wonderful year!

Happy Birthday to you ~ hope you have a wonderful day.
One day at a time ~ never giving up!!

Thank you everyone! I did so well today. I stayed completely on plan and actually a little under calorie goal for the day. I had some birthday cake-- angel food with sliced fresh peaches and a dab of FF coolwhip. I FEEL FANTASTIC. It's totally wonderful being back on plan. I can't wait to weigh in!

Jill-- thank you for the kind words. I am trying my best to be around more however, the little one takes a lot of my time.

I am looking for a job closer to home these days, I travel 104 miles round trip to work and with gas being as expensive as it is, it doesn't seem worth it. I also would like to not have 2 additional hours tacked on to my day... I want to see my baby!

I have an interview tomorrow for a recruiting position and have a message on my phone for another interview! Hopefully, I'll land something before I have to go back to work when maternity leave is over.

Keep your fingers crossed and thanks again for the birthday wishes
On this rollercoaster ride for the last time!
