D Day

I started Weight Watchers today. I told myself I would start last week, but I failed miserably. And then I told myself I would start yesterday, and I failed miserably again. And then last night, I told myself that I know I do not want to stay at the weight I am at now. So today, I successfully started. I am a HORRIBLE dieter...which is why I love Weight Watchers. And I probably don't work the program as well as I should, but it allows me to diet in the only way that I can...with flexibility. And I'm sure there are days that I will eat either pickles or green beans for dinner because I have already eaten all my points for the day...but hey, it works!

Matt is dieting with me (even though he doesn't need to!). I am soooo thankful for the support. I have the best husband! :-)

Speaking of Matt, we found out yesterday that he was accepted into the LPN Program. I cannot begin to express how proud I am! We went out to eat to celebrate (which is why I need to be on a diet in the first place! haha). His first day of class will be July 20th. I am going to call Madison's daycare to see if they will hold her spot until then. I am thrilled that he will be able to keep her until then. It makes the whole going back to work transition a lot easier for me.

Sunday was my first Mother's Day! Matt and Madison got me a pink zebra print Dooney. I love it!

Last night, I made Matt get on the scale without Madi and then with her to get an estimate of how much she weighs now. According to our scale, she weighs 7 pounds 8 ounces...nearly 2 pounds more than her birth weight. She amazes me!

Congratulations to Matt. I'm glad he gets to do this. I think he'll do well. He's been getting a lot of experience in care-giving lately and he does it really well. I knew Madi had gained weight--she felt heavier. We really enjoyed your visit. Love, Aunt Patty
