Just to clear a few things Up

Okay, first of all Thank you very much for all the fun birthday wishes and warm-fuzzies with Sprout's passing. It was a good week! I really miss her, I knew I would, 12 doesn't just fade over night!
My birthday was a great day and I really do feel amped for the coming year!

Now, some answers to questions you left.
The Web is strings, yarn, ribbons, shoelaces, etc. It's actually pretty fantastic and worth the trip. The museum is fabulous too, so plan a day if you're in the mood for some culture!

Next, my new tattoo is on the top right side of my back.

As far as my diet, can't believe I'm gonna say this, I want to lose 40 lbs. SHEESH, how'd I get here, Don't know but I'm taking it one day at a time and really focusing on my goal. I've also ordered a tapeworm (per Mindi's suggestion!)

I hope you all have a GREAT WEEKEND!

PS, for a sweet story - head on over here!

After Kami's comment I thought it might be your "south" star. Good to know it's not there.

Regarding the 40#s - we are all working on something. You are smart to take it day by day. Keep us posted on your progress. You know we are all here to support you.

Tapeworm. GENIUS!

(I lost 40 about six years ago. You can do it!)

I am with you Beck on the weight loss. Ideally it would be 50 lbs. But 40 would be incredible. WE CAN DO IT!

Mindi said...

Is that a belated April Fool's joke - the tapeworm thing? YUCK!!!

I need to go check out that museum. I can't believe we've never been!!! I'm always up for an adventure with my cute kiddos.

I love your goals! That tapeworm thing was a crack-up!! I had a good laugh!! I lost 39 pounds after I had my baby in October. So I know what it feels like to have 40 to lose! Seriously day by day is the answer. With your positive attitude I know you'll accomplish it!

You guys can do it! We are all here to cheer you on!

Go Tapeworm Go!!

That web thing does look like a 3 yr old dream come true. Maybe I need to get brave with Addie one day and figure that out.

Brooke said...

Question #1, are you serious about the tapeworm?! Okay, that was my only question. I saw that on Oprah. I hope the weight loss goes well! You can do it!!!

April said...

What?! This is too crazy, my birthday is also April 2nd!! Weird! I need to write a post about it still, turned 30 and not quite sure how I feel about it...
How old are you now? Funny that we've never met but have so much in common... we must both be awesome!
I hear ya about the weight loss, I have lost 38 pounds in the past 7 months, but it doesn't count since I gained 50 while pregnant! I am finally back to my pre pregnancy weight though, yay! I could still stand to lose another 20...
Anyway, I hope you had a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Becky, here's the link to that cut-up cake book: http://www.amazon.com/Easy-Cut-up-Cakes-Melissa-Barlow/dp/1423601750/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1207621423&sr=8-1

Good Luck with the weight loss. You can do it! After I had my third baby, the weight was much harder to get off. I did it by doing the South Beach Diet (it's awesome) and weight training. Muscle burns many more calories than fat, so you'll be burning more all day, not just when you exercise. Just some tips that helped me.

I watched something the other day on tapeworm diets. Yuck. Honey, you do not want to go there. Mindi would suggest it:) Try Bikram yoga... I lost 25 lbs in 3 months, all of which I gained back after I stopped going, but hey, that is beside the point.
