Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

Christmas Party for my Local Knitting and Crocheters

Here is the best party of the year! When my local group gets together for the annual Christmas Party Exchange. I really needed this party to give me a quick "brain" break from my son's accident. It really was a wonderful few hours of escape and allowed me to breath a little easier... :) I won a wonderful basket full of yarn, lighted crochet hook, I have been wanting one for some time now, and a new knitting book...with a little teddy bear Christmas ornament. And check out the yummy treats and cookies!!! Thank you everyone for such a great party!!...

Ok I Weighed In

Hip Hip Hooray! I just weighed in at WW and I lost another 1lb 2 oz. That makes a grand total of 7lb 2 oz. So I am slow but surely on my way to reach my goal of 25 lbs. I just started to walk this week. I walked down to the end of our street and up the side street to the main street and back down and over. About 1 mile. It was a good 20 minute jot. I feel good about it.

I am getting used to being a little hungry when I finish my meals and go to bed and I am starting to restrain myself from grabbing snack foods and sticking to my eating regime. I also have learned to eat 1/2 sandwiches when I eat out and always to order a salad and fill up on that type of food with the dressing on the side to just dunk my salad goodies in. It is working and I am looking forward into fitting into those jeans again.
