Go Faster, Momma!

I have a tendency when driving to talk to the other drivers around me.

For example, last night Ryan and I were on our way to Jake's softball game in Hanford and we were running approximately 10 minutes late, so I may or may not have been in a hurry! I was telling the cars in front of me, "hurry up cars!" so that Ryan would hear me because everytime I say that, he will start talking to the cars too! So Ryan starts saying, "Move cars! Awe, man, the cars are in your way mom!" I was laughing so hard! After we got through a red light in town, Ryan said, "Go faster Momma, there's no cars now!" Oh my, that kid definately learns these things from I'm pretty sure his daddy doesn't talk to the other cars on the road!! :)

Weight Watchers

I have been neglecting the blog for so long....I miss it! I have been waiting to have something good to blog about, something that I thought my friends and family might enjoy reading...and I have a few drafts saved and almost ready to go, I just need to update some photos for your viewing pleasure!

I wanted to share a little something that I've touched on only briefly on the blog. In January I joined Weight Watchers. I've gone to my Tuesday night Weight Watchers meetings religiously with the exception of 1 week of vacation at the coast! As of tonight's meeting, I have lost a total of 25.6 pounds!! I am super excited about this accomplishment!! I have a goal set and I am getting closer every week. I am hopeful I will reach goal and be able to maintain that weight by the time my 1 year anniversary with Weight Watchers rolls around. It takes a lot of discipline and hard work but I know I am worth it!! :)

Finally, all of my hard work and time away from my family spent at the gym the past several months, is paying off. I was able to go shopping last weekend and purchase clothing 2 sizes smaller than I was wearing in January!! Hooray!! The good news is that I have tons of clothes from a few years ago that I will be able to fit into need to purchase an entire new wardrobe!

To everyone that already knew about my WW journey and that has been supportive thus far, thank you, thank you! Mom & Dad, having you watch Ryan on Thursday nights (and a few Saturday mornings) so I can get away to the gym, has been a huge blessing! I truly have the best friends and family anyone could ask for! :)

I promise to update with more photos of Ryan and some funny videos and stories very soon.
