Back To Me Minus 1.2 :)


Hello World! Hope everyone had an awesome weekend. We're all set for a great Thanksgiving week. On the way to the airport to pick up family and start the celebration. Not sure why a flight from New Orleans has to go to Chicago when the destination is no where near Chi town! And yes, it's snowing in Chicago. Okay.

Our family is officially celebrating Thanksgiving before Christmas! :) Just so you know, Mountain Man and the Tigers have begun 'checking' all of the Christmas light bulbs. You know, these things are important. Especially because we decorate Thanksgiving weekend.

Look at the image above, that's what our kitchen table looks like right now! Until I upload a picture of ours that is adorable. Enjoy this image and think of my mother with me. Every Thanksgiving she had the Horn of Plenty on our table to remind us to be thankful for our Horn of Plenty. I love it and this year begins the tradition, not sure why it took so long, in our family that my Mommy started years ago.

Now to the good stuff, "Back to Me!" Guess what - the title fools you not - I am getting back to me minus 1.2 lbs. Yipeee! Can we say yaaaaay!! I am saying yahoo!!! Honestly, I didn't notice a thing except for salivating for sweet tea every afternoon, or a sweet Starbucks latte. Otherwise, after a water bottle like days of old, I was getting back to me - well, minus 1.2.

Did anyone else have a little success this week? Now, on to Thanksgiving. And for this week, I might break the internets when I say this one. Nonetheless, here goes.... Will not eat after 7pm! Oh dear, no good-night toddy. No even pie and milk. You know, what used to be a lifestyle will be again. :) It is basic. It works for Oprah, it works period. So I am in this week. No sweet drinks, and no eating after 7pm.

Let me know what you decide. And see you soon. The Win It Wednesdays will be chosen this week. Look there are two. So enter in the side bar. Stay warm and healthy and remember, an attitude of gratitude - that's what I am striving to attain this week for sure.

Warmly,

Hooray for you!!!

I am SO with you on getting back to me!!! I have made the commitment to living a more healthy lifestyle. I've always exercised and watched my diet... until the last year, and boy do I feel it! I just don't know why I have finally decided to be SERIOUS about this the week of Thanksgiving. Oh well. Anyway, keep up the great work and enjoy the water (add some lemon to it) and it is going to pay off not eating later... it has to!

Good for you! I am spending the Turkey week with my sister who has had 3 boys and is STILL a size 4. I am hating on her. And the girl can put away some food. Ice cream, cookies, whatever and whenever. *hmph* Needless to say, I must resist her late night urges, because she apparently got the entire skinny girl gene available in my family.

Congratulations on the minus 1.2!!! I hate to admit it, but I've not walked any more since my last promise to do so! Busy-ness got in the way, and I got sick, and I'm having a slow start. We're headed out of town, so when we get back... NO MORE EXCUSES. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving, friend!

YEAH! I'm proud of you! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Oh, by the way...I didn't know this but Chick-fil-A has a lemonade made with Splenda...not sure if that would count for you or not, but I tried it and liked it!

Happy Turkey Day to you and your family!

My Grandmother always has a Horn Of Plenty on her table too! She also makes a turkey out of a pineapple for the kids table. Cute.

I need to delve deeper into your blog to find out more about the 'back to me' diet. I need to get in on this! I love your blog, I found it on "we are that family" and am so glad I did! Thank you for sharing your faith and life!

Thanks for visiting me on my blog! That cracks me up that we have almost the same taste in coffee! MMM...Coffee. If I would have already showered and the kids weren't napping...and if my tastebuds weren't burnt from my cold, I'd go get some! ;)
