Having Mom here for 2 weeks was great motivation.  I managed to lose 2 pounds while she was visiting, and that's with eating out a lot and even having lobster!

She's been gone a week and I'm trying to stay the course.  I did not lose any weight this week, but at least I did not gain any.  As always I struggle with exercising.  I either don't have the time or the motivation.  But today, I dropped Liam off at school and went for a 45 minute walk.  It's a start!

There are a lot of numbers when you are getting into shape.  How many calories in that cookie?  How many inches is your waist?  What do you weigh? How long did you exercise.
I now have a new favorite number.

For the first time in my conscious memory, I bought a pair of size 18 jeans! And they fit!  And I don’t have to lie down and use a coat hanger to do them up.  WIN!
