Sunday- Swaps, Sweets and Sweat

Just a reminder that the sign ups started today and end on January 3rd. You can click on this link here, or on the picture on my sidebar to get to the blog for the swap and the instructions to sign up.

Another gift Adam got... Hey Shelly LOOK A CHICKEN!!!!

And this is my son Jim, he was headed out with his friend last night and she wanted him to wear something other then his usual jeans and polo shirt. As luck would have it my mom gave him this shirt for Christmas. It was hysterical trying to get him to wear this shirt. He was so uncomfortable. But we convinced him he looked great and I even got a picture.

As for the pictures I showed yesterday... Sorry I didn't post links to the patterns... I am planning on adding them to my Ravelry project page and any pattern links will be there. If you aren't on Ravelry and still want one let me know and I'll email it to you if there is one.

Church went well. I wore PANTS. Yep it was a shock to everyone. I did get a lot of compliments. They think I am melting away. I am only losing maybe 2 or 3 pounds a week now so it can't be as noticable as they think but it's nice to hear the positive feedback anyway. Yes I struggle with this taking compliments thing, but I am working on it. I am just not used to them so responding to them is a little hard.

Went to my BIL & SIL's today. We brought Adam. He played hard and fell asleep in the car on the way home. He's still sleeping now on the couch. I am almost afraid to think when I'll get to sleep tonight if he doesn't wake up soon. They had a TON of food there today. I skipped the appetizers and snack foods of course, dinner I had a little ham and 2 mini meatballs. They also had I swear 12 different desserts, oh my they looked good. But well we all know that's a No No for me too.

I came home to find the closet rod that holds all my clothes fell down and all my stuff was in a huge pile on the floor. That was a workout to clean it up, get the rod back on the wall and re-hang everything. {{{sigh}}} Now I think I am ready for a nap. Maybe I'll be up all night too, LOL.

Guess that's all for me today. I'll be back sometime tomorrow. Have a great night. Sweet Dreams

You wore pants?!? Congratulations!! And, of course people are noticing--how could they not?

As for compliments--sometimes they are hard to accept. But accept them for what they are--people congratulating you, telling you how wonderful you look--just smile and say thank you.

Before you know it, they'll be easier to accept.

Your son is so funny--my girls have the same problem with my son!! They'll say, "You're not wearing THAT again, are you?" They finally convinced him to try something else on, and he was pulling and tugging at it, but we convinced him that he looked just so nice!!

Oh--your closet mess. If that were me, I probably would have just looked at it and said, "see you tomorrow, mess!!"

Have a wonderful day--I'm off to work today!

Sounds like you and Adam had fun. I hope he slept all night for you :)

And if it was me, the clothes, rod and all, would have stayed on the floor. LOL.

The best permanent weight loss is slow and steady. Keep up the good work!

Congrats on the weight loss.

By the way, maybe it was a little message that it is time to get rid of some of the larger sizes?? And a couple pounds a week is melting away. Look at what you have done pre-surgery. I would imagine that there are people who just don't recognize you. Again, congrats, you still need to take it easy.
