This Week's Weigh-In, etc.

Hi All, I weigh 198 this week, down half a pound. It's a Downward trend that I will continue. I'm being optimistic, and trying to stay focused. Good luck to everyone this week. I started doing the Slim in 6 ( exercise program this week and feel very energetic today.

Another busy week, no time for blogging this past week and probably not this week either. We are working on the inside of the house, trying to complete all the projects we've started or been meaning to start over the last few years, but never finished or got to. Our goal by spring is to have everything minor finished so we can simply enjoy our weekends and relax outside or do day trips, etc. Last week, we completed the most of the painting up the stairs and in the upstairs hallway, including all of the newer doors Grimjack put in year before last. He got the ceiling and walls finished yesterday, and installed the new light fixture, which looks great.

Just to give everyone a frame of reference, I lived in the house for 16 or 17 years before he came along. The house is close to 50 years old, and since I was a single parent a good number of those years, I never had the money to make improvements other than painting. So we had the original kitchen and bathrooms, etc. So over the last four years we have tried to do many of the things that needed work long before then.

This week, I hope to get all of the trim painted. Little Grim's Fourth Birthday is this coming weekend, and we have a family party for her on Saturday, so the rest of the week will probably be spent preparing for that.

Hopefully, the busier I am, the less I will binge!

Good stuff. When I'm bored, I always eat more. Keep busy!

It's an up and down ride, that's for sure. Hang in there and just keep at it. :)

Oh shoot. I forgot to weigh myself this morning. I'll have to do it in the morning. Thanks for the reminder!
You'll get there. Rome wasn't built in a day. Keep it up!
