29 days....12.5 pounds

Maybe if I had weighed in this direction when my weight was stuck a few weeks ago it would have went down faster!LOL!

Well, as you can see in the title of this post I behaved myself in Amish Country. Talk about a hard place to stick to your diet! Mashed potatoes, broasted chicken, ham, steak, turkey, gravy, dressing, noodles, desserts...AHHHHHH! I was down 1/2 a pound. YAY!

When I got home our foster son decided to pretend he was glad I was home until he found out I did not bring him home anything. When our 12 year old hugged me, he asked her "Why are you hugging her? She didn't bring us anything." That breaks my heart. I know he has issues, but it still hurts. The next Saturday that has nice weather we are taking them to the zoo. I was going to let them pick something out there.

While we were at the B&B we watched American idol, and I was home in time to watch the results show last night. I felt things were way off and that Brooke and Jason should have been the bottom two. This season seems to be unpredictable. Carly's song choice made me a little uncomfortable. I didn't really like it. Based on performance my top two were Syesha and David Cook.

Happy Thursday!

David Cook's song was really great - and I'm not an American Idoler. :)

Love the cartoon. Maybe that's what I've been doing wrong.

Congratulations!! That is awesome, you should be very proud of your weight loss!! I have been on weight watchers for a month now and I am down ten pounds so I know what you are going through!

Have foster kids can be hard. I too, am married to a doctor, a clinical psychologist who deals with damaged children, so I commend you on opening your home!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!! I hope you visit again soon - I know I will. By they way, those pages in the upper right and corner are totally fabulous!!!

Haha! Love it! We all need to start weighing in like that don't we?!

Yeah, I was pretty disgusted Brooke was safe. I left the room, and did not even want to know who went home. My kids told me though ;) haha

I cannot say that I like Jesus Christ Superstar, at all. But I do like Carly better than Brooke, and she should not have gone home yet. :(
