Not a bad start to a Sunday morning... I was happy to see that number on the scales. That meant that I am still headed in the right direction.

After my weigh-in, Keith and I headed to KCMO to a surprise birthday party for my mom. She'll be 80 this Friday and we wanted to do something special for her. My sister, Kris, put the whole thing together and I just did a little helping with ideas - the kind of "do you think this, or do you think this?" And, all I had to do was say which "this" sounded better. It was a great party. My mom was surprised and very touched that we were all there PLUS Kris had sent invitations to some of mom's former co-workers and she had several of the ladies show up. It was great.

It only cost me one pound... 197 yesterday and today. But the week isn't over so I have a chance to get back down to the 196...

Then - next week is JAMAICA. Wonder how I can get through six days in Jamaica and not gain any weight.

Don't see that happening but I will be very careful. V-E-R-Y C-A-R-E-F-U-L.

the scales are finally starting to move down a bit. {sigh} my own darn fault they weren't but i just had too much on my plate and on my mind.

i haven't been to exercise but a few times since ron had his surgery. i don't want to go at night and leave him alone for any longer than he has to be so i've just been coming home. i should at least start walking in the neighborhood again now that it's starting to cool off a bit. i'm lazy. i get home and i just really want to put my feet up. not conducive to losing weight.

life in the fast lane...
