When we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness -- and call it love -- true love. - Robert Fulghum

Weighting In

It's taken me 3 weeks to get up the nerve to write this post, but I needed to do it. And if it helps someone else who is dealing with the same issues, even better!

As I looked at the 2 family wedding invitations in my hands and the pictures I just posted on Facebook of my daughter and I and a picture from my BIL's wedding that I was in last year,  I knew that something had to give.

Like most wedding bound females, I want to look good in the pictures next year, but I also want to be able to keep up with kiddo...and that whole on my feet for 12 plus hours on a wedding days!

So. hi ho, hi ho, it's back to Weight Watchers I go. I know how much I need to loose and am going to do it healthy. No crash diets, not pills. Just eating right and exercise (I go to the gym 3 day a week right now.) I lost 60lbs before I had kiddo. I know I can do it, I just need accountability.

And as I want extra accountability, I will be posting after weigh in every Monday. Good, bad or even, I'm going to share. I have 105lbs to lose and I will, because I plan on being hotter at 40 then I was at 20!

So without further adieu...

Week 1: -7.2 (First week you always lose a bunch)
Week 2: -.6 (Total down 7.8)
Week 3: -3.2 (Total down 11) And I was on a 3 day vacation this weekend!

Just The Way You Are

As a woman and a mom, I think every girl (young especially) need someone in her life to tell her this!!

Rules for a Happy Marriage

Years ago, someone gave me a little plaque with these rules and I still have it hanging and look at it most day.

- Never both be angry at the same time.
- Never yell at each other unless the house is on fire.
- If one of you has to win an argument, let it be your mate.
- If you have to criticize, do it lovingly.
- Never bring up mistakes in the past.
- Neglect the whole world rather than each other.
- Never go to sleep with an argument unsettled.
- At least once everyday try to say one kind or complimentary word.
- When you have done something wrong, be ready to admit it.
  -It takes two to make a quarrel and the one in the wrong is the one who does most
of the talking.

Melting Pot Giveaway for 10-10-10

There will be lots of wedding taking place on Sunday 10-10-10.  That date holds special meaning for me too, as it is the day, 12 years ago, that I married my wonderful, if sometimes exasperating husband!

So in honor of the occasion, I am giving away a $25.00 gift card to the place we go for every anniversary (and most date nights too!)

All you have to do to win is leave a comment about your love of fondue! And on 10-10-10, I'll draw a random number.

Good luck!
