I am finally into day 3 with drinking nothing but water. I have eliminated all sugar and carbs (other than complex carbs). I'm eating healthier, more protein, more vegetables and I feeling and seeing the difference.

I'm keeping these weight loss posts in my drafts folder until I see how far I get with this. If I am on a road that I am not turning off of then I'll go back and post all my drafts. I just don't want to put all this out there and then fall back into eating sugar and regain all my weight. I want to be a inspiration and not quitter.

(Update. This is my only draft. I'm posting it and logging everything from this point forward into my blog. So pass or fail. I'm doing this!)

Me and Little Man

I love this picture of us. It was Friday night at the fair and my husband Tony and his group, Almost There, were playing. We had gone to listen to them but Treyton was tired of waiting and wanted to go and ride at the fair. So his Mimi snuck him out and we went and rode some rides! He was happier after the picture was taken! Being a grandmother beats anything else in the world.

My Heaven is due October 31st. She is 5 weeks now. I'm excited to see how far she is going to go. Her friend Mandy gave birth at 37 weeks yesterday.

Oh Happy Day!

Oh and later that fair day, much later after this picture was taken, Treyton and I had our faces painted. Check this out!
We had so much fun!

Patrick County Fair 2013

Me and my Sissy. Praising God for mending fences.
Treyton had so much fun!
We always ride the carousel.
I want my MiMi!
Riding all alone, well, except for the worm.
My handsome grandson.
We had a wonderful time. The only thing missing are pictures of my Meadow. Hope to get some more on Friday. :)

My Cheerleader

I can't remember if I've talked a lot about the changes for Meadow that we have made this year. I'm thinking I did mention it. We've changed her school for her 7th grade year and we are right at a month into school and I'm so happy to report that she is doing awesome.

I love the new school. The security is better, there are more staff to student ratio, and the best news of all is that Meadow has met no resistance- which means- NO BULLYING at her new school. There is less drama and she is more focused on her academics.

She has a new boost of confidence in herself that I knew was hiding in there. I'm so glad it's surfacing. She's made new friends. Her grades have come up. I'm just so happy.

It was a tough decision to make because you never know how things are going to play out. You want to teach your children to tough out situations as well. I felt in my heart this was the best thing to do and with Tony feeling the same way that was the confirmation I needed.

She is more involved because she is a cheerleader. And even more so because she absolutely LOVES cheering.

You can't imagine how happy that makes this momma. It's weird when there were things we wanted so bad when we were little but couldn't do them, and we feel as though our dreams come true when we see our own children get to live those dreams.

Here's praying for a great rest of the year!

Her friend Kylie on the left and my Meadow on the right. Aren't they just beautiful!

Lunch Date

We had lunch at the Chateau Morrisette and it was so beautiful that day. The food delicious. Spent time with my daughter Savannah, my grandson Treyton, my mother in law Mildred, and my sister in law Tammy.

My boy fell asleep on the way there and was waking up as I was carrying him in. Such a sweet little gentleman he is.
