Potty Training


Oh my word.. I have been going out of my mind this entire last year..trying to get my son to go potty in the TOLIET. Seemed that I had tried everything. Even great promises of rewards..was he interested??? NO! He knew how to, its just obvious he didn't want to.


So I decided to finally make a chart. haha. For 2 days now he has been going to the bathroom like a big boy. I just cannot believe it. Why in the world did I not try this earlier!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I would of known I could bribe him with tiny little stickers rather than grand bribes of toys....haha
This chart idea definitely works for me!!!

I have a girl, who was easy...but friends have told me of a great trick...you may have already heard of it though...

Toss cherrios or fruit loops into the potty and have him AIM at them. :) If I was a boy, I would think that was fun! LOL

Good luck!

Oh my word, what a great idea Steph. hahah I honestly have never heard of that one. :) Thanks I may try that. He is doing so well..but sometimes he says "I DONT WANT TOOO" hahahh Thanks

A little about me...



It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
