I’m so grateful we got to see LJ’s play! I really enjoyed it. He spent much time climbing around the stage with the help of ‘silks’ or ‘ribbon’. It’s the stuff you see them climbing on in cirque du soleil. Now he wasn’t doing any of the really wild stuff but he really seemed athletic and agile. Not two adjectives I have used to describe him often. LOL! Scrawny is how I usually think of him, but it sure helped him to move gracefully above the stage.
I am also grateful for some things Nick is suggesting I do to help me jump start the weight loss. More about that when I see what’s going to happen.
So I guess that leads us to the diet news. It’s bad. I was up 2 pounds at this weigh in. Nick followed me to over see the weigh in. I never even made it out of the bathroom – he just bent me over the counter and let me know a 2 pound gain was not what he had been expecting.
It’s a new week and I’m still trying, I guess that all I can do right now. One interesting thing happened while we were up at Nick’s mom’s house. This is not a good place for anyone trying to lose weight to be. We were getting 3 pieces of cake to bring home – this was a wonderful cake, yellow cake with cherries pie filling mixed in, baked in a 9 x13 pan and a thin icing drizzled on top… sorry my mind wandered, back to the interesting thing. Nick had cut the pieces and I picked up the fork in the pan just to do a little scraping and neatening of the cake edges. It was going to be a wonderful bite. But Nick popped my hand and said “You don’t need that.” Not normally I might have made a face at him and eaten it anyway, I mean one bite – no big deal. But after some interesting emails with Kaylynn I am starting to think about a few things. Now this kind of thinking isn’t my favorite but it might just lead to some important development. I'll be sure to let you know!!
