Always Crazy, Always Fun, Always Love

Ray Romano once compared life with twins to living in a frat house. As he put it, "no one sleeps, there is a lot of noise and a lot of throwing up." I find this very true with 4 young children, including twins. However, though things are always crazy, we always try to have fun and, most certainly, always love each other.

"Fight the Fat" Fridays Report 2

Well, not as good of a week, but not a total bust. I maintained this week. Oh well. Better than gaining. I knew ahead of time that this would be a tough week and it was. But, I can tell keeping track of it here is helping. There were several times, when I knew I was not likely to lose weight, that I just wanted to say forget it for the week as I have done before. But, knowing I wanted to report it here kept me encouraged to keep going and be as healthy as I could. So, whereas I might have gained a pound or two before, I maintained the current weight. So, I don't get to move my little ticker, but that is okay. Hopefully I can make next week better, though I am going into another tough week with lots of baking and such to do and Pampered Chef parties to get ready for.

Positive moment of the week- I did exercise 3 times! (2 intense workouts and one leisurely walk today with the girls enjoying an unseasonably beautiful day before winter strikes tomorrow...)

Thanks for everyone's encouragement. It feels good to be on a good path again.

YAY! Maintaining is important! My weigh-in day is Wednesday, and I was happy to find I lost 3.5 lbs last week! Woo hoo! Then Thursday was crazy day and I ate and ate and ate and got up friday to find I gained 2 of that back - IN ONE DAY! So it's important to never give up!!! Good for you! :-)

Maintaining is just as hard as losing- so, Good Job! I added a ticker to my blog too and it really does help knowing people other than myself might see it. I weigh myself every morning too just to keep me in check. It feels great to be healthier!

I agree, maintaining is GREAT. I was just telling Jake this morning-I've been the same number for 3 days straight which is HIGHLY unusual. I normally fluctuate at LEAST 1/2 pound per day. Good for you and your workouts too!
