Rewarded with smiles...

Tuesday was doctor day! Time to take the kids in for a check up. My daughter is 6 months old, and my son nearly 4. This was my son's first time to visit this doctor since we made our big move from CA last year. I was a bit nervous of how he would react to the doctor. But my bit of anxiety was not necessary, seeing that he did everything that was asked of him. He climbed onto the exam table and laid down flat, to the amusement of the doctor. He took his little visit very seriously. My little guy sat so still when the nurse administered the hearing test. I think he was a little embarrassed, as I kept seeing a small smile start at the corner of his lips then quickly fade. When the nurse handed him the mystery flavored lolipop as his small reward, he couldn't hold back his smile looking up at me quickly as if to get permission to tear the wrapper off.. lol (of course I let him have it..even though we hadn't had dinner yet lol) It is so funny, how one minute my son, can be so naughty.. then the next minute be the sweetest thing... lol

My little girl was poked, prodded, weighed, and measured.. Of course she wasn't too thrilled, but all in all my kids came out with a clean bill of health. "They look great!" our doctor said. I can't say that I was shocked at her statement, but a small part of me was quietly relieved.

After reading this blog called Bring the Rain, I quickly started taking inventory of my blessings.. Realizing that a healthy family, healthy beautiful children, are definitely a blessing from the Lord worth taking note of...

Healthy chidlren are such a blessing. Daniel has been admitted to hospital twice in the past 3 weeks. I have just been looking at him sleeping peacefully and am so thankful that I have him here with me.

I had an appointment for my 4 month old as well. Its such a relief to hear the doctor say they look great! Even though all seems well, it just helps to have the doctors confirmation!

How is your weight loss going for you? I really need to lose some weight, I have 101 excuses, I just need to buckle down and do it!

What a blessing to have healthy children:)!

I know it feels good to have the doctor say that.

Thank you for participating!:)

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...
