My loss.....

So I stepped up to the plate last night......I broke out Mr. Scale and decided to have a looksie - to say I was nervous would be an understatement. It resembled a first date - picture me with sweaty palms and fluttering heart!! Unfortunately, I was not feeling the "head over heels" in love feeling - well, until I made the leap I didn't feel that. So after 2 weeks, one of which was a week of vacation - I am happy to report that I'm down 4 pounds - WOOHOO!! 13 more to go........I can do this - I will do this!!! I'm feeling more in control everyday - with every step or pedal stroke and every positive affirmation I am know that I am regaining my mojo!! So here is to 4 pounds gone!!

As for V day.....the hubby and I agreed to do nothing more than exchange cards. Candy, flowers, dinner, balloons are soooooo overpriced at this time of year that I feel a bit "ripped off" when I shop for them. Not to mention - I don't really do candy (that isn't WW friendly) and dinner out isn't my idea of fun.....sooooo, I'll be sharing my love with GYM tonight and the hubby will get the sloppy seconds - LOL - okay, just kidding......I am going to hit the gym though and hubby is fine with it!

In the absence of my real life Valentine gifts, I'm sending you all a Puppy Bouquet~ ENJOY your day and HUGS to you all!!

I KNEW you could do it! WOOHOO for 4 pounds gone!!! :)

Oh and yes, Romeo is a Lhasa and also has slightly funky teeth but he's still my perfect little pooch LOL. You're a Sag too right? Hmmm maybe there is some kindredness there :D.

Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you have a good time at the gym and with the hubby afterwards.

You're doing great! Still seeing Mr. Scale, huh? Did you and Mr. Tape break-up, so was it a no-go right from the beginning? So hard to decide who to give love to these day...Ken, Gym, Mr. Scale or Mr. Tape. When they all work together I have a real good time:0)
