5 pounds to go!

Week Bazillion Total Results:
Brandon: 42.8 pounds --only 2.6 pounds until goal weight!
Cheryl: 32 pounds exactly --only 5 pounds until goal weight!

Yep, we are rockin' weight loss machines (although some may notice I didn't report last week. That's because I gained .2 pounds. Heehee!)


My favorite type of scene only moments before piano lessons begin [and I happen to have no sitter for the day and #4 is already asleep in his crib and #1 is playing at a friend's house]:

Later tonight I will blog about our awesome adventure yesterday. We had some more outdoor fun. To be honest, I was hoping it would include 10 job offers. Which it did...not. Ho, hum.
I'm nothing if I'm not optimistic, wouldn't you say?

I am getting inspired to blog about my weight loss/problems/journey. I will weigh in tomorrow and if it is good news I will start blogging about it. That is the deal I made with myself!

I can't think of anything more wonderful than sleeping children. Their faces are so angelic and the peace (spiritually and physically) it brings is great!

32 lbs is very impressive--good for you! Oh, to only have 5 lbs til goal weight. *sigh*

I love your sleeping kids! I rarely see mine sleeping. They just don't "crash" anywhere...it has to be in their beds. Makes for great nap and bedtime, but stinky church!

Oh, and p.s. Kauai was wonderful! It was my first time to that island. Just beautiful! Oahu is a great island to visit because you have the country (North Shore -- we stay in Laie) and the city (Honolulu is fun to play/shop/eat in for a couple of day trips). You really don't get the combo on the other islands. Anyway, it was really a great trip and I was so happy to come home to my little nest and great kids! Sorry to do this on your blog, but I wasn't sure if you'd check mine again. Love love love you. A lot. Please move to Utah (North Logan, specifically) so you can be near your sister and live at my house.

I just caught up on your last few posts... thanks for the shout-out! I was happy to see that. So did your DH quit his job? We are in a time of "soul-searching" and decision-making right now, too. I appreciated your thoughts on it all. It really does test our faith.

Does Julie have a blog?! I see her comment but nothing on her profile.

I'm soooooo proud of you for the weight loss. I know that's not easy. I've been struggling to get the "baby weight" off and I'm lacking motivation or something. It's so great that you and your dH could do it together. My DH is skinny and can eat whatever he wants, plus tells me every day that i'm sexy and don't need to lose weight so it's hard to argue w/ that. haha.
