New School year, New ME!

After a weekend of last minute shopping I was able to get all of the boys all of there materials and clothes. They were so excited to be going back to school! Al except Mr. Mickey! He had a big rant when I left him this morning at the crack of dawn at his daycare.

Joey & Little Luis

I really feel bad for him, poor kid gets up at 5:15 am so I can get him ready for his commute with me to Orlando. Next year he will be at the same school than little Luis. He really wants to go to the same school with his brother. Honestly I can tell you that it will be me the one crying next year when his turn comes. I will miss our conversations on our commute to and from Orlando. Oh well what can you do! Can't keep them small forever! Mickey did not want his picture taken. ;(

Now let me see if I can make sense of my blog title. You see when school starts they is a system that has to be in order for the week to go by without a hitch. Soon will come Joey's wrestling matches and his ROTC events. This is not including whatever activities little Luis will have and if he wants to take any sports.
I have been putting something in the back burner that I knew I needed to address and it hit me real hard that this needs to be addressed! I don't fit into any of my Jeans! Not ONE! Know some people have told me that it could be the dryer that shrinks to clothes. HA! Good one! But the fact is that I need to loose weight.

I am not pretending that I will be as thin as I was BC but I need to loose at least 25 to 30 lbs! There I said it~! That is how much I need to loose.

I am realistic if I see it in total it can get overwhelming, But if I see it as 3-5 lbs per week. I can make it work. The truth of the matter is that I like to eat and munch on sweets. So I have planned my meals for the week including snacks. I will not weigh myself till next Monday and I will get out and take a power walk 2-3 times a weeks.

I really have faith that this will work for me! Wish me Luck! I will post when I weigh myself if I have lost any weight good or bad.

Your sons are so handsome. I hope that they have a wonderful school year. I need to shed a good 20 pounds, but I'm a snacker too. I'm trying though.

my dryer shrinks my clothes. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

oh yeah, and the humitiy down south causes my fingers to swell - hence my wedding ring being tight.

Wow, woman, 3-5 pounds a week is FAST.. be careful! I do WW and the average is 1-2 a week, and the slower you lose it the longer you keep it off. Plus your weight will fluctuate on any diet and some weeks you'll do better than others, even when you are doing the same thing. Just don't want you to be disappointed... I always keep my eye on the long term, it all adds up eventually to weight gone! That said, it's NOT EASY... I love to eat :O)

Good luck my friend....I know the diet thing can get so frustrating. Any time I try my mind thinks about food 24/7. It is horrible. Let us know how your progross is going so we can encourage you! ;0
