Finding Me Mondays: Mommy, you're too big to go down the slide...

...somedays a child's honesty is almost heartbreaking but it's also can make you realize that it's time to really make a change!  I just wish it wasn't the holidays!  It's so much harder to stay on track and not be tempted during the holidays with all the yummy comfort food and special treats that are really only made one time of year!  This weekend though, may have just changed my mind and renewed my interest in getting into my little red dress (mentioned below)!

I was playing on the new swing set with my boys when I sat down to go down the slide, my oldest (age 4) said, "Mommy, are you sure you'll fit?  You're too big to go down the slide, it's only big enough for Daddy!"  Ugh...and the most you can do is hold back the tears, give them a big hug and say, "Yup, I can fit!" because they just don't understand and then explain that it's just not quite the best choice of words...I just wish it wasn't dark by the time we got home from makes it so much harder because I refuse to have my kids walking outside without sidewalks when it's dark!

We got the Wii Fit and EA sports set up, so now it's just time to use them...but I have to say that the cards are stacked against me this weekend...Logan decided to back into me...if he were a smaller dog, maybe it wouldn't have hurt as much, but when a dog Logan's size backs into your tends to bend the opposite direction!  No ice needed, but taking it easy until tomorrow...then hopefully!

Gained two pounds this week, so I'm not happy about that's been a week - the computer hard drive is going, so all in's time to go back to bed and start over!  Since the list was getting long, I'm going to start posting a link to the long list and just include the previous week and this week's weigh-in every Monday!  (Long list June 21st (203.5 lbs) - September 13th (194 lbs))
Last weigh-in: September 13th/September 26th - 194lbs, Size 14
October 11th - 191 lbs
October 18th/25th & November 1st/8th/15th - 192 lbs
November 22nd - 194 lbs (not happy about gaining weight, but not totally surprised either)
(ready to gain control and lose weight - ugh and the holidays are now upon us too!)
As I've said every week though, regardless of my current weight  and how I feel right now, I am still hoping that by next June, I will still be able to reach my goal of being able to keep up with my kids and husband and wear the red dress that hangs prominently in my closest (it blocks all my pants) so I have to look at it every will continue to be my motivation!  I get tired of being the one behind the camera every time and am ready to be the one in front of the camera (smiling) more often!  I don't want my kids to wonder what I looked like when they were young!

Join me in the journey of finding yourself, whether it's weight loss or something else! We could all use some support! I'd love to hear your stories!

Beth you will do a great job this holiday season. Whenever you need encouragement just give me a call. I will be going through the same thing trying NOT to gain weight this holiday season. But we have great resolve. I have been meaning to ask if you are interested in checking into Medi Weightloss. It is really doing a great job for me and I didn't know if you might be interested. If so, let me know and we can do this together. Hang in there!

I wish you much success in your weight loss goals. I did so well during the summer but have probably gained 15 lbs.back in the last two months. Winter is the hardest on me.
My husband sent me a text the other day with the photo of a large lady lying in bed. I didn't even recognize the person. I scrolled down to find out he had taken a pick of me! Talk about wanting to cry.
