It's April!

We're definitely having April showers here in the hot ATL(it's not really hot, but I can't get the marketing slogan "Hotlanta" out of my head). I can only hope we get May flower. Of course those wouldn't be in my yard, I'm not much of a yard person. Of course the Munchkins and I bought 10 seed packets at the Dollar Store awhile back and it's just about time to plant them.

The main reason for this post is to update everyone on my weight loss progress....drum roll....30.5 lbs since January 1st. This week I walked 6 days for a total of 24 miles. The distance varies day to day, on the weekends I'm up to 5 miles a day, and during the week I have a hard time getting up early enough to do anything more than 3 miles. I'm happy with my progress so far. This week has been hard, PMS week. There was one night this week while laying in bed with Hubbie watching tv, I rolled over and told him that I could eat my arm I was so hungry.

On the sewing front, not much progress. I'm planning on getting to that this weekend and finish up some frogs. I'm ready to start a quilt.

Happy Friday, and don't forget to do your happy Friday dance!

WOW Melissa! That is awesome! I'm at 17 lbs down since 1/1/09, and then I threw my back out this week so just hoping to stay even and not gain due to lack of exercise.


Oh, yeah, I did my happy dance first thing this morning.

I still fit in my jeans and I'm not ready to take aggressive action yet.

Yes, it's 4/3 and we're expecting another bad snow storm starting tonight. Blizzard has been mentioned again. We'll see.
