Wow, went to weigh-in this morning at the neighborhood clinic, lost my first 5 lbs!!! I'm so happy to see some results, and thought I'd share it with all of you. Also must add a dancing carrot, just 'cause he's SO cute!:carrot:

Ya'll have a great day!

Awsome WTG!!! That's like losing a whole roast! I like to think of my pounds in terms of food and children. I've lost almost 2 small children. Lol!

lol, thats great!!! I guess I have then lost my 3 year old!!! Great way to look at it, I love it! Now, if I could just lose my 7 year old, I would be set!

Kim-Great job on the five pounds. Don't you love it when that scale moves??

Speaking of 3 year olds....Mine today came to me and was crying and touching his head. He was mumbling and trying tell me what happened. The blissful thing about a 3 year old is that all you have to do to make him feel better is kiss his booboo and make it feel better. I admit at first he protested that he wasn't being treated seriously and wasn't going to offer me his head to kiss, but he gave in and the second I kissed it...he giggled. Who would want to lose that?!

Ok, so I didn't lose my 3 year old, I lost 33 lbs. But I still am considering losing the 7 year old. He is driving me nuts today! My two oldest, 7 & 11, are going to South Dakota to spend a week with their grandparents, staring Aug 1st. I am ready for the break. My husband is currenly deployed and I am going nuts here at home with them!

When my oldest 2 (10 and 7) are away, my 3 year old drives me nuts!

WTG! :dancer: :cb: :cp: :carrot: :dance:

Wow, when I think of it that way I've lost like an entire toddler, or a medium size dog. :lol:

LOL ya'll are too funny! Thanks to you all. It really IS great when you see a change. I am feeling very encouraged, and had been having a hard time drinking enough water (I was getting 80 oz most days) but have already had 100 oz today and am still going!! I just feel!!

The idea of losing a whole have never thought about it like that although I have told myself today that "5 lbs. is like losing 1/2 bag of potatoes!!" I'm thinking now that it would be NICE to lose my 2nd oldest daughter...she's 19...weighs about 160 lbs. Nice thought!

Thanks again for the encouragement :) and the smiles!
