Wow lots of people on the Wanabee's site now.
Well I have just been busy, still have been going, we went for the 4th of July to Pennsylvania for a Mopar car Ken wanted to go to, than we went to Washington D.C for a couple of days and that was nice. It was the day after the big July 4th fireworks around where the monuments are. We went the next day and I guess there were over 8 million visitors there, it was even televised I guess.They had some of the monuments roped off and closed to the public, like the WW 2 one, cause they were going around looking for unexploded fireworks and so we had to miss that one. But we did see the rest of them, Ken had never been there, but I had been several times with my work when I had went for training. I got pretty good at taking the Metro/subways when a group of us wanted to go to D.C from Maryland, where we had our traning, to go out to dinner. So I showed him how to work that and we ended up parking in Maryland and taking that to save money and so we didn't have to drive downtown there. It saved a lot of headaches for us. But we had fun, ate downtown and saw the sights. That is a really impressive place, to think that's where lots of hisory is, and we really enjoyed it so much.
So hopefully we will stay around for a while, till Sept for a week we are going to Oahu,Hawaii and I am so excited, never have been there and I can't wait for that. It will be Ken, son, Dan and I my daughter, Tracy, she just had the baby, Tyler on Easter and can take some leave from the Air Force to go with us. Kind of a get away for her, the baby will be 5 months old and her husband, said he will be alright for a week with him. He can take him to day care and go on to work. Daughter, Kelly will be having her baby in October and says that is too close to toe dute date for her to travel. Alan, in the Air Force as well, will still be in South Korea so he can't come either. We will be going around Sept 15th to the 23rd, so it is coming up. We will be right on Waikiki Beach so lots of action there.
Other than that, just getting ready to have a garage sale with daughter, Kelly from around Indy in couple of weeks so been trying to clean the basement to have some touch love and fin things to get rid of. Than the 1st week of Aug Tracy and myself will be giving a baby shower for Kelly, so just been busy busy busy. But I wanted to post and see what is going on and let you know I am still around.
CJ-I hope you had a great time at your friends graduation party. I love Frankenmuth and that great fried chicken they have there. When we lived in Michigan that was my favorite place to eat, they give you so much food, it is like a dieters downfall. Did you get some chicken while you were there? Thanks so much for the great Birthday card in the snail mail, I just loved it, it was soooooo cute! I sent you an email a while ago, hope you got it. Oh yes, you had asked about how our meeting with son, Alan's girlfriend, Tina's parents went in Pittsburgh, Pa? It went really well, we all got along so well and both love each other kids so much. Hope we have another wedding one of these days. Yes, and I told Kel about the blanket you are making for Brandon and she said that was so sweet of you and can't wait to see it.
Kim-It sounds like you are doing well after your operation. Sorry you had to drop out of Watchers, but for now you have all the materials so maybe you can follow the program and when you can afford it go back. I know you are not happy to have to go back to work after being off, but that is great that you only gained 2 lbs though. It was really hot here, but thank goodness it has started to cool off.
Candice-Hi there, glad to have you with us. first of all congratulations on your 40 lb weight loss and for all your hard work with your Weight Watchers program,
I too go but have a way to go as well. We are in the same boat too. Those workouts and swimming you do is sure to help you to get to your goal. Wow you live in Hawaii? We are going there in September for the 1st time, to Honolulu and I can't wait. You are lucky to be living there, what perfect weather. Where is Wahiawa, on what island?
4me4ben4will-How you doing with your Leslie Sansone tapes? I need to dig mine out, I used to walk to them almost daily, but now I go to Curves, but I want some variety so need to get them out and use them too. I have about every single one of them, have dozens of them, love them all. How was your big family reunion for the 4th Of July go?
I am sure you did a great job at your parents house, do you want to come to my house next? My husband said I need to be ruthless and throw a lot of my much treasured JUNK out in the basement, but some of it I just can't bear to. Well that is what I am in the process of doing right now, but having a hard time getting rid of some things. I really need to de clutter, so will try to have some tough love with my stuff. LOL
PattiAnn-Welcome to our wonderful group.
Glad you decided to join us. You will love it here. Where do you live in Michigan? I am orginally from there, the Detroit area, Mt Clemens to be exact. We have been in Indiana about 15 yrs, due to a job move for my husband, we came here with our 4 kids, but I miss Michigan and all of our family is still there so we love to go back as often as we can. Good luck with all your walking, that is sure to get you to where you want to be.
Dallas-Hey girlfriend, don't worry about being gone or falling off the wagon as I am doing that as well. But let's just make the best of things and start fresh, and help each other get where we want to be. I know you will make those numbers that the doctor said are not great be where they are soppose to be. Keep at it and take it one day at a time and I will do the same.
Lisa-Don't worry too much if you went off your low carb for your daughters Birthday party. At least you didn't eat the frosting with it like I would have done. I am sure you got right back on the band wagon and are doing great now.
Ja23-A big welcome to you as well.
Hope you will post often and let us get to know you. This is a wonderful group and we can all help each other get to where we want to be.
kitkit/Marie-I am glad you posted with us, a great big welcome to you as well.
We talk about anything and everything here, losing weight and how we are all doing in life. We will help you keep up with your diet and visa versa.
Weight wise I am not getting where I should be, so much traveling and goings on, but I really want to try in the next 6 weeks so I can fit better into my clothes when we get to Hawaii in September. So I am really trying to do everything right and that includes going back to Curves, drinking lots of water and making better food choices too.
Take care everone, will talk to you all later, Love you guys, Sharon
