Homemade Father's Day...

Try not to laugh too hard lol but this was my attempt last week at a homemade Father's Day! Instead of stressing myself out with trying to decide which gift my husband would like, I decided to try some some handmade things. So my 3 1/2 year old son and I attempted to do the handprints lol Here is the recipe. I am sure with practice they will look a little better. We also made a photo cube, and I painstakingly sewed by hand (mine you), a rice pillow. I can't sew worth anything LOL It took me HOURS. Anyhow, my husband seemed very happy with our homemade gesture. (at least he said he took them to work for his office lol).

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...
