I'm in

Okay, so I will be honest here. I thought, I will just give $10 to make Gwen happy :) I want to do this, but it sometimes feels impossible. I did so well on my vacation. Oh yeah, I got to go to Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC. It was amazing and fun. Probably why I got home and had lost 3 pounds! I had fun and was busy.

And then, Back to reality. Back to a house that my 13 and 15 yr. old sons had trashed. Laundry, Laundry and more Laundry. Kids getting ready for back to school. Garage sale that meant great deals, but more stuff to organize and store. Cooking that needs to be done now before the veggies go bad. Cleaning the pantry. And I have barely made a dent. And my sister had to find a house to buy immediately. And I dropped everything to help her because she is my best friend and her problems are my problems.

I have gained :( As soon as the stress starts building, I start eating. It is my coping mechanism. I know, everyone says replace it. I try and fail. Why can I be a smart woman who can't figure this out???

But here is a goal to set. I will post the rules for points on my fridge and try to get started. Do you think the multiple servings of brownies that I ate (after a healthy yogurt) will set me back too much?

  1. None of us are going to be perfect at this, but as long as we all learn some good habits, that's what's important. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Savannah. :) I was a missionary there and would love to go back. Christy, who is in our challenge, isn't too very far from there ...

    Good luck to everyone!
