Those results are amazing!!! I bet you will be pleasantly surprised with your blood work. I am glad that Alli's came out good. I think vitamin D is a very common deficiency to have in the mid west. I am on vitamin D and a lot of my friends are too. I was going through some knit/crochet patterns. I have two booklets of baby blankets. They have about 8 patterns. If V wants one, pm me your address and I can send it to her. They are patterns that she would have no problem with. Have fun at your hockey game and have a great weekend. Oh!!! I got my magic bands in the mail!!!! My daughter and I were so excited!! My hubby and son were very passive!! I can't wait to use them. It will be out first magic band experience!! Have a great weekend.

It is very hard to control what children eat once they are old enough to buy their own food. I was a very strict mother when it came to junk food, limiting treats and having very little of it in the house. But once the kids were old enough to ride their bikes to the store, it was all over. They were able to eat whatever they wanted in spite of my best efforts. But you are setting a good example, which is the best teacher anyway.

I think your weight loss is impressive, since it is real long term loss. And with your focus on eating better, it sounds like you'll be able to keep it up. Good luck with the doctor visit. I hope it is nothing but positive news.

You just have to instill the fear in them...much easier to trust them then! LOL!


You always crack me up Nini! I agree completely!

D~ Those results are really good. Especially for a shorter month! The most important thing is that you feel so much better. I think that should be your main focus. There will be plateaus that can discourage you, but you are doing something great for your well being and no number on a scale can take that away. So, two !

I'm so glad Alli's blood work came back so clean. Surprised, but glad. Here's hoping that V's will be the same. And as far as diabetes, you are on a good track to eliminate that worry. Obesity, excess weight, poor eating habits and not exercising are all things that can cause type 2 diabetes. You have been working hard in all those areas. After watching Food Matters and Hungry for Change, I am a firm believer that eating non processed foods and raw whenever possible will prevent/cure you of most anything.

Thanks for the continued prayers for Jennifer! She is very optimistic that this next step will help her be able to do whatever needs done for her family. She's a real trouper. I'm going to take my sewing machine to her house in case I get some free time. Guess Jen isn't the only one who is optimistic! HaHa! I will try very hard to get my TR started before I leave.

You're probably getting the low temps and snow we're getting too, so keep warm and safe. Have a great weekend!!

You should be so proud of yourself! What an inspiration!

I am glad that Alli's results are good, at least you don't have to worry about that. It's ok that you still want her to improve her eating though, it sounds like she could use it, plus there is always room for improvement. At least you don't have to worry as much anymore.

Good luck to you and V with your appointments. Our girls have check ups next week as well.

There will be news over on my pre-trip report this morning.

I'm really glad to hear the bloodwork was fine. Teenagers are pretty resilient, I think! I know I ate like crap and still was able to be a full-time athlete. Not the best, but no long-term damage thankfully. But once I hit my 20s, I had to clean it up or face the consequences!

I'm so intrigued by what the new bag is. Can't wait to see that and your calendar. I need to start our itinerary in earnest, but still have much research on FP+ to do.

Heading off to bed to get up to be ready for our limo to the airport tomorrow. But I just had to say that I absolutely LOVE the Chip & Dale Bag. It is just perfect in every way.

Glad Alli got a good report and hope V does as well.

Great job on the weight loss...keep it up.

I don't know if this was posted elsewhere but do you have a website or Etsy for these great bags? I would love a Marie one for our trip next summer!

Sorry for not stopping by lately. The thing is that I have to concentrate a lot when reading English since it's not my first language and I always want to reply when I read your posts. And I'm horrible on spelling so I always use google translate to check my spelling. And some times I find it hard to find the right words for what I want to say. Again because English is not my mother tongue.

Well back to replying. How great that Alli's doctor appointment went so well. I can understand that you are shocked that the results was so well considering what she's eating.

Your health plan for yourself seems to go really well. Good for you

It's going to be exciting to see how V's doctors appointment goes. Hopefully she is fine as well.

The Chip and Dale bag looks great. I love the colors you have used and the applique looks awesome

I hope you have a great Sunday and I will try to get on here more often.
