Cooper wants to be a rock star.

Don't worry if you can't understand what he's saying - he makes up the words to his songs. He's a funny boy!

Yes, I had a good first week on Weight Watchers. Without much trouble at all, I lost 3.6 pounds! I was more than a little shocked - and pleasantly surprised. I still won't announce my beginning weight!! Not yet!

I am nearing the end of my first week on Weight Watchers. I have to say, no matter what the scale says tomorrow morning, I'm proud of my accomplishments (don't get me wrong - that scale better show a loss!!). Anyway, I've been good all week. I've stayed within a few points of my daily target - only using a few of my weekly allowance of "splurge" points. Dieting in a large office environment SUCKS! There is always food around, and it's usually not the healthy variety. Just this morning, there were Chick-fil-A chicken mini's in the breakroom. How am I supposed to turn those down? There has to be a way to lower the fat and calories in a sausage biscuit though - I'm really gonna miss that if I have to give that up! I have discovered this week WW Ice Cream and these little chocolate cake things that look like a zinger. Yum Yum. I bought the WW cheese and that is a HUGE help to track the points. Its seems to taste OK, I'm going to try the mozzarella cheese on a pita pizza tonight, so more news on that later.

I haven't told my husband what I weigh. As a matter of fact, I haven't told anyone other than the lady that checks my weight at WW what I weigh. Maybe when it's all said and done, I'll inform others how much I lost! I input my information at the WW online site and my BMI # is in the obese range. Obese? How did that happen? But I realized that obese people have an increased risk of heart disease (which runs in my family anyway) and diabetes (also runs in my family). And, I'm tired of being tired! I'd like to do more and be active for my boy, so let's pray that I continue to do well on WW.

I'm still knitting dishcloths. A couple of friends have been crafting and so I'm going to stockpile a few cloths in the event they do a craft show. I'd love to see how they do. I'm not sure if anyone has an interest in them or not - we'll see.

Weight Watchers

I did it. I joined WW last Saturday. I am terrified of failure, but I have to do something. I have never weighed this much without having a child in my womb. And, Cooper and three now - I can't use the "baby weight" excuse any longer. I won't post my weight on here - it's too embarassing. I won't even tell my husband what I weigh, as I think I weigh more than he does, which FREAKS ME OUT. I have put on so much weight that it's difficult to move around. I can't get up and down off the floor with ease. My knees and feet hurt often. When I bend down the skin around my knees feels like it will cut the circulation off of the bottom of my legs. I'm uncomfortable in public situations and I'm just plain tired of being fat!!

The trouble is, is that I don't drink or smoke any longer and my last vice was food. And boy did I use it. What in the world am I going to do now?

Cooper seems to know how to subtract - when it's convenient for him. The other night he wanted some Cracker Jacks. We told him that he had to eat his dinner first. Not exactly what Cooper wanted. He wanted just Cracker Jacks for dinner. He finally agreed to dinner, and after he took a couple of bites, he declared that he was done. Don told Cooper that he had to take five more bites, then he could be done. So Cooper took one, and announced that he had four more bites. He then took another bite and declared that he had three more bites left and so on. Don and I were SHOCKED! After the first bite, we looked at each other puzzled and asked "did he just subtract?" He's only three!! And we haven't taught him that. Could he have gotten that off of TV?

I have been an exceptionally lazy blogger as of late. I can't seem to motivate myself to do it. It's kinda like my laundry - I can't seem to motivate myself for that either!! Also, I've been in a little bit of a funk lately. I can't seem to pull myself out as easily as I used to be able to. Not sure what's going on, but hopefully I'll snap out if it soon. I miss myself!
