Week 5 Check In

Hello hello!

Well this was a pretty good week on the weight-loss front. Since last Saturday, I'm down 2.4 lbs for a total of 11.4. WOO HOO! And this week, I tried on a pair of capris that my sister had given me. When I first started this, I could barely even get the up over my hips (and the thought of actually buttoning them was a laugh). Well, I got them on and buttoned and zipped up this week! Now granted, I couldn't BREATHE in them, but we're definitely seeing some progress. In fact, I'm wearing a pair of jeans now that I haven't worn in years. What a great feeling!

I've taken Kendra to 2 Webkinz events this weekend. Apparently, this is their big "extravaganza" weekend, so all the retailers are doing games and prizes and stuff. First, we went to the local place just down the road here after school yesterday. I bought her 1 new one, and she ended up getting 2 for free. So, she was pretty excited about that (3 webkinz for $15 is a GREAT deal). WELL... today, we went to the other store, and let me tell you. My kid scored! She ended up with 3 webkinz (all 3 of which were high on her list of "must-haves"), a mouse pad, a pack of trading cards, and 2 bookmarks... and it only cost me $11. The funniest thing of all was that she played a game of guessing the number of jelly beans in the jar to try to win a free one. They were given 3 guesses... well, her first guess was 397 and that was RIGHT! Can you even believe? What a random number to come up with. So, she got a free chicken out of the deal. LOL!

Still busy with my secret project. :) I can't wait til I can share it here!

Better get back to work!

Congrats, girlie - 11# is awesome!!

Jo and I hit Hallmark today for the Big "Extravaganza" too, though she didn't make nearly the haul that Kendra did! I bought her a husky, but they were low on the freebies by the time we got there, so she 'settled' for a black & white cat. Then she bought a hoodie, a pack of cards, and a carrying bag, and was eligible for another one, but didn't like any of the choices, and was going to "forfeit" her free Webkinz! So we picked a pig for a gift for her 3yo cousin. I'll have to keep better track of future events, so we don't wait till the last day! :) Congrats to Kendra for her score!
