Ok, I'm finally back, we are finally moved, I finally have the net back up and running (took Verizon 3 LONG weeks to get us back up and running), and I'm finally back on track 110%!

I bought a new scale about Thanksgiving time, I was pretty sure my old one was off and a trip to the dr showed me being about 13 pounds heavier than mine did, so I spent the money only to now have my home scale tell me what the drs said (yeah I know his was right). It was a hard smack to see that I had gone from 220 to 233 (and really struggled to believe that I really hadn't taken a step backwards really, I had just started at a higher weight), and with the stress of the move (and it not happening like it was supposed to, we ended up spending weeks replacing walls that were bad and even still have some more to tear out and replace but the main living areas are liveable now) and the holidays I fell a little off plan. I gained back about 10 pounds so I started this week at 243! I'm already down to 238, and feeling better about myself. I have set a goal of 199 by the babies 1st birthday, which is May 12th.. I would love to be in Onederland then because we are going (hopefully if money allows) on vacation that week!

Anyway, I have to get off of here for now and let my oldest get his math done and I still have boxes to unpack, but I just wanted to say hi!

wow, what is it with verizon?? I just switched from earthlink and I've already been on the phone with them twice for hours tinkering with the $#@@#$ box and set up.

don't be too bummed about the scale, that happened to me not too long after I started with my program. I had a spring scale and bought a digital. my weight was 9 lbs heavier on the digital. I felt traumatized after seeing that jump in number. The good side of it being I had a scale I finally could depend on to give me accurate readings.

Glad your back. Wow - that's a tough thing to face .....the differences in the two scales. Now you really know from where you are starting.

GREAT on losing those pounds all ready!

Grrrr our net is back down and now our phone line is dead too. They said that Tuesday is the soonest they can send someone out. I feel like we bought the money pit!

I'll hopefully be back on Wednesday, I'm at my inlaws doing my taxes... shhhh don't tell them I'm slacking ;)
