Whoooo-ha!

Another weight post again. Sorry, I am just sooo excited! This morning is officially 20 pounds lost, gone, and never coming back! I can forgive myself for having a messy house because I spend the morning at the gym instead of cleaning, because I am actually seeing results. And in the long run, isn't a healthy and happy mommy better than a spotless house? I think so too. Besides, it's easier to clean while William is napping after lunch. Nathan is at school and Oren doesn't walk through the dirt pile anymore. And while I dislike spending lots of money on myself, having to do it because my clothes are falling off or look like muumuus isn't such a bad reason. Did you know that regular people clothes are much cheaper than cow clothes? They look better too. Clearance racks, here I come. The bummer is that none of my somewhat cute summer clothes will fit at all come that season, so this will be a relatively expensive summer for me. I do have an awesome friend, who has been siked about ever pound right along with me, who has volunteered to help me shop for summer clothes later. It's nice to have someone with you who can tell you how fabulous you look. Men tend to not care "It looks okay" unless you are trying on clothes at Victoria Secret.....

So, yay for getting rid of unnecessary baggage!

Congratulations! That is exciting. You definitely deserve a good shopping trip or two.
Good luck with the cat...that does not sound fun. I hope your "quiet" day goes how it's supposed to.

Yeah!! I wish I could go shopping for that reason... The budget should be freeing up a little in the coming months (lower heating costs, lower insurance costs) and then I want to put the eating plan you sent me to good use :)
