Saturday- Shocked ... People Noticed, WOW

Wow, I can hardly believe it everyone today at the family get together noticed I had lost weight. No one ever notices. They were also amazed at the amount of exercise I have been getting on a weekly basis.

I figured it out I swam 4 miles, did an additional 6 hours of water exercises, walked on land 3 hours total this week. And that's just what I can remember. When I look at the numbers I am amazed too. I am usually the poster child for a "couch potato"... wonder what I am now???

Adam and I went to the pool this morning. We had fun. he even swam a little without the swimming belt. He is going to be a fish like his Nana. After that we went to Crocodile Lake and threw rocks in the water, then to my husbands family for a welcome home and good bye party.

I knitted a dishcloth while we were there. It kept me away from food and snacks. I gave it to my MIL as she is leaving for Florida in 11 days and we won't see her for Christmas.

They had dinner, boneless grilled chicken, green beans, rolls, potatoes and stuffing... then brownies, ice cream and sugar free jello for dessert. I only ate chicken and green beans and had a small spoonful of the jello. Adam was being a little brat, lol, he didn't want to eat anything, he only wanted to play. I got him to eat some green beans finally and 1 bite of the chicken. Geez this kid has to learn there is more food to eat besides french fries, hot dogs, and toast. LOL

Speaking of Adam here is some more of his school projects this week... a shape necklace and some spiral art. This week was all about shapes and colors.

Hopefully tomorrow I will have some pictures of my knitting stuff. The KAL will be done and I can show that finished dishcloth too.

Church in the morning and maybe after that we will take Adam to the park or something. He is staying until Monday. He has a dentist appt on Monday afternoon. His daddy is going to take him.

I guess I'll get him ready for bed now.

Good night everyone.

That must have been an awesome feeling to have everyone notice something without pointing it out to them. Congrats on all your progress!

I love Adam's's actually very good. Looks like another artist is in the family.

You know you're losing weight when other people notice. Way to go with the exercise!
And I think it's smart that you kept yourself busy so you wouldn't be too tempted. That's great.
Love the artwork. the little necklace is priceless.

Have good day!
