Checking In....Again

Oh my gosh...has it been this long really? I am still without a computer (darn taxes came due for both places) so we have to wait a bit longer for the old one to get fixed. no new ones right now. Whah!

I think about you guys all the time and miss the inspiration and motivation and lots of other fun stuff that happens when I read your blogs. I am still plugging away with both the house and my weight. I've been disgustingly lax on my efforts and it shows. Last week, I dusted off all my old weight watchers stuff and decided to start making a more concerted effort about recording what goes into my mouth: what - when - how much. It seems to be helping.

One would think with all the hours I've been putting into this house renovating that I'd be at least sweating my butt off. Well...I have been sweating - but the butt unfortunately is still with me. The house is coming along well and I promise I WILL post some pics as soon as the old computer is back from the shop. (The "shop" being my brother -in-law who is supposedly fixing it for us.) When one is getting free work done- one doesn't nag the one doing it...

We have been knocking out walls - ripping out kitchens - tearing off siding - I feel like a star on "Flip That House!" The goal for moving in was Christmas but I'm starting to think we were being too optimistic about that. Right now I need to focus on other goals - mainly my weight!

I found an old driver's licence from about 8 years ago and I couldn't believe how I looked. As in good! as far as weight goes. Only one chin....some noticeable cheekbones...and I'm sure if it was a whole body shot - a lot less of everything else too. I gotta' do this. Knowing what I could look like vs. what I do look like is driving me nuts.

Right now I'm 191. In the license photo I'm sure I was about 150. That's' about 5 pounds a year....which doesn't sound like much - but I'm planning on living a lot more years and I can't keep up at this rate!

Anyhoo - I just wanted to shout out and say hi to you guys and let you know I'm still here and I will be back! With pics and hopefully progress! Pray that my computer comes back soon!

HI! Glad you are well and keeping busy. It's an addiction for me to keep up with my blog - I know what you mean by missing it! We're here when you are done! :)
