I don't post on here about my weight loss journey much because me and my sister, sister-in-law, and mother-in-law have our own little weight loss blog, but I am so excited about my success that I must share. I am 298! I started last summer at 345. I have been really trying at it for the past 15 weeks. I joined weight watchers 15 weeks ago and since joining I have lost 19Lbs. I feel so wonderful it amazes me! I have so much energy and love going outdoors and doing stuff! I am really loving life right now and it will just get better from here on out! I am bound and determined to loose this weight. I need to lose it. I will lose it!
Jordyn has been bugging us to teach her to ride her bike for some time now, so we decided to do it today! We took her to the church parking lot and Dusty started to help her go and she just took off right away!! It was awesome! She caught on soooo fast! Me and Dusty were a little scared about teaching her because she is such a little klutz, but she did it no problem! I am so proud of my little girl!
Today is me and Dusty's 10 year Anniversary!!! I can't believe it has already been 10 years. I have to say it has been the best 10 years of my life! I love you Dusty more than you will ever know and I love that you do so much for me and the kids. You are such a selfless person and I admire that in you! We don't have any $$ to do anything for our anniversary today, but on the 23rd weekend we are going to go on a little getaway for us-post will come later on that one! I just wanted to tell the world and all of my family and friends that me and Dusty made it 10 years and hopefully we will make it many, many more!!!
My niece Katherine and my two sister in laws came down this week and we all decided to go to the zoo. Ryan hasn't been since his 2nd birthday and Jordyn hasn't been since Becca took her last year I think, so I thought it would be fun to go. Ryan was so funny. He was in heaven. He loved all the animals and was having so much fun. It was great! Jordyn enjoyed it as well, but not as much as Ryan. Ryans favorite part was the snakes......of course. I hate snakes, but I tolerated them so he could see them. I was freaking out on the inside the whole time!! Jordyns favorite was the penguins. She was just fascinated with them for some reason. It was really fun. Becca brought her two kids that she nannies and they seemed to enjoy it as well. It was a little colder than I would have liked, but I would rather it be cold than to hot!!! It was a great time with the family!
I took Jordyn to the eye doctor about a week and 1/2 ago and we found out that she has an astigmatism and needed glasses. I wasn't surprised because both me and Dusty had glasses when we were younger. We picked out her frames and they called today and they were in!!! So we went and picked them up and they look sooooo cute on her. I love them! They make her big blue eyes even bigger.........I LOVE IT!!!
Jordyn came downstairs today and said "Look at my cute hat mommy!". I looked over and this is what I saw. I thought it was the cutest thing. Then she proceeded to pose on the floor and said take another picture, and this is what that looked like. All I have to say is that I am sooooo fortunate to be a stay at home mom and witness these sweet and adorable things my kids do!
Welcome to our blog!! Me and Dusty have been married since April of 2000 and have 2 beautiful children. I am a stay at home mom and love being able to be such a big part of my kids lives! Dusty works at Fusion IO in Salt Lake City and is a wonderful Dad and husband. We are just trying to live life and enjoy!
