"Of all the gifts life has to offer, a loving mother is the greatest of them all"
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. I was blessed to spend mine with my children and my own mother.
This was my new start of the week. Remember I posted this a few weeks back? It was my reward for losing 10 pounds, and now I finally got to start it. It is a Cricket Collection chart, I love their pumpkins. I kitted it all up, and hand dyed my fabric for it and then it sat waiting for me to "earn" it for nine whole weeks.
That's right it took me nine weeks to lost 10 pounds. While I am proud of my progress, I have decided to step up my weight loss efforts. My ultimate goal is to lose 100 pounds before Calvin turns 1 year old. I have already lost 60 pounds of that (I lost 40 pounds before leaving the hospital after having him which was mostly water weight). So to help me along I have joined weight watchers. Yesterday was my first weigh in after joining, and I have already lost 3.4 pounds. Not much, but way better than I was doing on my own. So wish me luck and health and willpower! I know a lot of other bloggers are also on weight loss journeys, some even doing Weight Watchers like me, so it's nice to know I am not alone in this.
Here is a picture of our Mother's Day lunch. The girls made cards for my mother, and we got her some pretty pink "mums" for the occasion. Though I read somewhere that white carnations are the traditional mother's day flower. My DH also got me a beautiful bracelet with the children's birthstones and names engraved on it. I love it!
