I can't believe it has been 3 weeks since I posted. I have been trying to post every Friday after my weigh in but I keep getting busy and now that the weather is so beautiful I just want to spend it outdoors. OK, first things first, the week of 3/19 I lost 1.2 the week of 3/26 I lost 2.2 and today I lost 1.4 for a total of 24.2. I am really down a total of 39 lbs since last year but I am just going with my loss since I started Weight Watchers. The support I get at these meetings and from my leader is great. One of the ladies brought in a weighed hula hoop. I tried it and it is hard plus it hurts your hips. She let me take it home for a week to see if I like it. These ladies are amazing. A few weeks back I brought in about 3 Weight Watcher cookbooks and let the ladies take them home. I love how we all share. I have been walking like crazy. I asked my neighbor this morning if I could take his dog for walks during the day and he said just go in the yard and get him. He is a big dog and my Bambi is so small that he can't keep up so I am going to take his dog.

I really want to go buy a new grill this weekend. I am ready to start grilling tons of vegetables. I already made a list of the vegetables I want in the garden. I am also going to learn how to can my own salsa, spaghetti sauce and marinara sauce. I think I am also going to can some banana peppers because I love putting them on sandwiches.

My big 50th birthday party is in 29 days. I can't believe it is coming up so soon. My birthday was in Feb. but we wanted to have a big party together with my sister in law/best friend so we are having one big party of about 100 people. Her daughter in law and son are getting it all together for us. I love that we are going to have a DJ/karaoke. I know the kids are going to have a blast, and so are the adults.

We are not going to do much for Easter this year. My daughter is going by her boyfriend's family to do an Easter egg hunt. She has never met them before so I know she is excited. I bought a ham, potatoes and corn but I think I might just cook it tomorrow or maybe Sunday for just hubby and I. I am not sure yet. My hubby is working so much overtime that I know one of those days he is going to just relax and sleep. He deserves it.

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Easter today since I know I won't be on the computer Sunday.
