Excited its week 23 and I hit the 30 lb. mark

Oh yeahhhh! Doing the happy dance. lol First I'm excited that its Friday and I'm definitely ready to celebrate this weekend. I know I've been out of the loop for over a week, in touching base with my blog but I've been working on a few projects here and there. I figured it would be great to share my excitement today & catch up on updates.

As for Weight Watchers, it is still going great as it has from day one. I can't complain. Every 10 pounds seems like a milestone for me. Honestly, I feel like I lost the weight of a 2 year old baby. Crazy when you think of it like that. I'm achieving more than I had expected and its a goal that I feel will come to an end, when the time is right. I'm just sticking to the plan daily and I've become so comfortable with it. All my friends have been super supportive in helping work out at the gym, always tell me what a great job I'm doing not being tempted to eat their junk and always pre pack my fruits and snacks in zip locks, when I go to their house. When we bbq, they even buy skinless chicken legs just for me. Awww...they are too sweet. What can I say, not only am I making myself proud but I know that my friends and family are behind me 110%.

On to the subject of my crafts and party planning, I have been really focused on getting all my resources together and putting my mind to work. I've made some amazing progress and I'm really excited to see it all pull together soon. Looking forward to a new beginning and exciting career in the making.

Thats it for now folks...........!!!

Feeling like I'm hitting a plateau

Lately I feel like the diet has been on a stand still position, even though the numbers and my graph shows other wise. Every week I loose anywhere from 1/2 a pound to 2 lbs a week on average. Though I feel I need to step it up a bit more to continuous results in the 1.5 - 2 lbs a week. These couple of weeks have been in the .5 - 1 lb. Overall I can't complain since I'm on week 22 and have lost a total of 28.5 pounds to date. I am hard on myself and I know it. Though when I set a goal, I will push to the end and nothing or no one can stop me.

I came across a statement on the WW website that even as simple as it is, it really put me to think. It said, "I came to realize that it took me years to put on all of my weight, so it wouldn't come off in a couple of months. I had to learn to be patient." Boy do I need to read that over and over again. lol It's like they say, "Patience is a virtue."

Now Andre and I are planning on hitting the community gym tonight or taking a late night swim. I do have things that need to be done around the house like sweeping, mopping and vacuuming though. I will just have to head home immediately and get started asap. I will be sure to focus on continuous laps back and forth, race hubby a few times or do an intense work out at the gym. Let's see how tonight plays out for us.

Guest Bath Light Fixture, has been ordered.

Dre and I had looked around for the perfect light fixture, that would work well in our modern spa guest bath. We both agreed that this would be the one. It had to be an oil rubbed bronze to match all the other hardware installed. This ones iron oxide but the match is close enough. All the ones we had seen, where extremely antique or too traditional looking for our style. Patience paid off because hubby had training class points accumulated from work, that he got to trade in for Home Depot gift certificates. He made out good with $100 plus I had a $10 off coupon of $100+ purchase at HD. So the $178 upgrade to the house, only cost us $63 out of pocket. Oh yeahhhhh!
