Just stuff…

Just a few things:

*I went to the wedding on Friday night. The bride was gorgeous, the groom was handsome, I had a great time. I wore the print dress (Hubs liked that one alot) I was rewarded for the effort¬† ¬†;)) . Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures of myself, but they do exist for other people.

Don’t they look happy?

*I am now entering the second full week of my Alli diet. So far, so good. No ‘distress’. No starvation. I even found ice cream sandwiches that fulfill the cravings for sweet, chocolate, and cold all at one time! AND….I have lost 6 pounds!!

*The kids have all returned to school- preschool, grade school and high school. I am currently here alone during the day. But as the saying goes, “feast or famine”. I have gotten inquiries from two moms. One with an 8 month old and a two year old and another with twin three year old boys! I wonder if I can handle them all…..although I have learned that the more you have the easier it is to amuse them. I will be interviewing them this week.

So that’s all I’ve got going on over here. I hope every one has a good week!

    Evil Genius- I don’t know if you read this post, http://dontwannahearit.com/2008/08/24/monday-moaning-the-sharts/ , but if you haven’t, you should before you decide to try this. Even though it is working, I am VERY diligent about the amount of fats I am taking in!!

    Glad you had a good time! They do look happy.

    Do you have to be licensed in your state to do childcare?

    Shelli-Yes. But one of these girls is practically family and the other is a friend of a friend. I don’t usually have all these kids at the same time. Often it is so that Grandmoms have a break. The only time it’s crowded is when the others have the day off from school and then Babygirl is here with me.

    Be VERY careful with Alli! Years ago when people were buying it in prescription form (Xenical) my doctor told me to always carry an extra pair of panties with me! I’m sure you’ve already figured out why! *wink* I’m glad you found something that works for you and congratulations on the weight loss!! By the way, you can NEVER go wrong with ice cream sandwiches!!

    Jezebel-I have been very lucky in that by watching the fat content of my meals, I won’t have a “need” ( :o )for the spares. but I am aware and carry ‘back ups’!

    You almost make me wanna go get Alli. I’m just scared. I am thinking it’s gonna take some help for me to get past the plateau……

    Congrats to the bride & groom, both lovely. And to you for being rewarded!

    Winter-When I consider the fact that I have been eating sensibly and exercising (some) for the past year and not losing ANYTHING, I think that using this has gotten me ‘somewhere’. We’ll just wait and see how well I do!

    Catscratch- The plateaus do suck. I haven’t hit one yet and I hope to avoid it!

    i am cracking up at the alli thing because you are braver than i am! my coworker had been on it and doing great, then in the airport security line he coughed and shit his pants. woops!

    Hellohahanarf-It has been easier than I expected. I can have 15g of fat total in a day, so I try to keep it between 3 and 5g per meal.I have a friend who also “woopsed” in the CVS so I am very careful. I try to be prepared (“depending” on where I am going) *wink wink-knowwhatImean?
