I weighed in this week at 209! I am so close to my goal that I can almost taste it! I've been drinking slim fast and eating protein and fiber bars. You wouldn't believe how full you feel when eating these bars.I've also been doing a lot of walking, I try to walk 45 minutes every day, but I do good to get in 30 minutes of walking. I'm glad the weather is staying nice, I put Brandon in the walker and away we go. He loves it almost as much as I do. I've also been weight training 3 times a week. I LOVE my new weight set. I'm hoping to reach my goal weight by may. Fingers crossed!!

I've decided to try my hand at house plants again. I used to have many many plants in my home. But when Brandon came along I was scared we would try to eat them so I gave all of them away. Also I couldn't keep my cat out of the plants. She would lay them them..flatten them out, break the steams. I finally got sick of trying to keep her away from them. But now I have a new idea..hanging baskets. LOL Worth a try I guess. Here is a picture of my Jade plant. A friend of mine gave this to me. Isn't it awesome!(click for bigger picture)

Here is a picture of my WIP. It's called Touching the autumn sky. Very very pretty.

Today I gotta take Brandon to the

doctors. He has been sick all weekend. Started with a fever but now he is coughing and has a runny nose. I know it's probably just his spring allergies but I want to get him checked out anyway. Strep throat has been going around and I want to make sure it isn't that. I have to be at the doctors at 8:40. I will post an update when I return home.

nice wip there Becca. I will pray little Brandon is ok. Good idea to take him to the dr. Strep is running around here and so are allergy/sinus issues. I have the sinus crud, where you blow your nose and you can breathe one minute and the next you cant. Gotta love Take care hon,Kimberly
