SLOWLY BUT SURELY...Weight Watcher Weigh In!


Wow what a week it has been...full of emotional ups and downs...a real roller coaster of sorts.

Not only did I grade final exams and notebooks, I did final grades! It's like running a marathon...you are exhausted and yet satisfied at the end. :) On top of all of that, our precious Grandma Elaine had another serious stroke and ended up in the ICU. And then there are Christmas preparations...which I love doing!

I always draw our Christmas card and doing that has been a sanity saver for me!

It was hard to keep any focus at all on Weight Watchers. Yet the habits I am getting in place are doing the job, stress or no stress.

I lost another pound for a total of 27 pounds!

My goal is 30 pounds by Christmas. I will be very happy, however, if I continue at the one pound loss per week during the Holidays!

This weekend (Saturday morning) Amy, Jenna and I are headed to see Grandma Elaine at the hospital! Jessi and Tim were just over there, and I am anxious to give some special loves to this dear lady!

May the true spirit of Christmas live in your heart! God Bless! Love and hugs to all who read this! Love Linda

Way to go, Mom! I am proud of you for sticking with it even with the stress of life. I think its hard to stick to goals with a no excuses mentality, but you are doing that and it is tough. You deserve this body, health, and fitness that you are working towards.

Take your walking shoes to Seattle with you. Grandma takes long naps and it's a great break to get out and move. Greenlake park is just a mile away and has a gorgeous 3 mile loop around the lake. Also, there are some killer stairs to get up to the 5th floor where she's at... Dad and I took them every time to get our legs moving.

Love you and am so proud of you!
