This is me and the Bday boy. I can't believe he is 4 years old. When I look it the picture I see my daughter's unwavering belief. When she found out that they may or may not be able to have kids she did the infertility thing for a few months with no success. They then decided that there were plenty of children already here that need a home. Now I want to remind you that they were 23 and 24 at the time. They put their paper work in the got certified. I was never 100% excited about the idea. I had heard horror stories about the way the system works and I was afraid she would get her heart broken. She was absolutely certain that she was going to get a baby. The people at work gave her a baby shower and secretly I was alittle sad for her. Thinking she is going to get her hopes up, ect ect ect.
Two weeks later she got the call about this little boy. He was a sick little guy and came home with a tube in his nose for feeding. She loved that tube right out of him! She has never looked back. She got her 2 little girls straight from the hospital as well. They are only 6 months apart. I stand in awe of my daughter everyday. She is a great mother and she makes me so proud. Her faith increases my faith. I have to also say she couldn't do without her helpful, thoughtful and very loving hubs. They make a great team.
Sorry, that has nothing to do with weight loss, I just wanted to share that story. Well let's see.....how was the food? It was ok, better for sure. Still not in the full mojo mode, but I feel I am doing better. I didn't walk yesterday. My knee was bugging me Saturday after my walk at the bird park. Which was a slow walk and talk with a friend. I am going to really try to push myself today as much as I can without hurting the knee.
At the Bday party I saw people I haven't seen for a while and boy were they surprised at me. Got alot of nice compliments. Which is nice. It still kind of takes me off guard.
I like what the Bday Gson said the other day while he was walking behind me. "GeGe your butt's not so fat anymore". I stopped and kissed his cute little cheek and said thank you kid.
I have the day off today. Going to hit the thrift shops and see about getting me more pants. I have 2 pair of jeans that fit and no Capri's. I live in Capri's in the summer time. I think this year I am going to get summer dresses too. I am feeling a little girly. Then I want to go see The Blindside. I know I am behind in my movies. I haven't seen a movie that I really liked this season. I know this one will be good. Finished "The Help' over the weekend. Read it! I really liked it.
Well best get on my sweats on get out the door to walk. I think it might be raining. Maybe I will have to go to the office and get on the treadclimber. It's about time we had a little weather! Sunny everyday is boring. Don't hate me.
Keep the mood and the food real......be believing!
