It has been a while since I posted due to a very busy schedule.  My son graduated high school on June 9th.  That was a huge tremendous success.  I know people will say graduating from college is a huge success, but I am hear to say different......, whenever you can see your child graduate from high school that is one hell of an achievement especially due to the high school drop-out rate.  I still cannot understand why teenagers feel they have to drop out of school "when it is free".  Don't they realize by dropping out and going to get their GED or high school equivalent certificate that cost money.  Not only does it cost money, but it cost time especially if you have to wait on someone to pick you up and take you.

Here I am sitting on top of my son's motorcycle.  I have decided I am going to post my works of art, but I am also going to post weekly how I am doing with my weight loss.  This picture is showing you at my biggest (look at those arms and all that bundle roll up into one big self of me!).  What woke me up is when my son told me about 5-6 weeks ago, you are fat and I like the pictures at grandma's house that shows you smaller.  I have heard comments over the years about my weight from family members, parents, men and women, but it took the voice of my child to get me hell bent on losing.  I am in my fourth week and I am here to tell you it has not been easy.  I have lost a little over 10 lbs, one week I did mess up but I got myself right back on track.  The one thing about losing those 10 lbs is that I received notice from people that I figured wasn't looking, wow!  Can you imagine what the next 10 lbs are going to be like? 

In order for me to lose the weight, I started cooking differently and working it like in "work out".  I love doing me some cardio dance, zumba and kickboxing.  Along with that I came across a weight watchers 30-minute workout cd.  I did not even know I had this cd until I was going through some stuff.  I love this cd and it works you out.  So if you are reading this blog and want to get fit, then come join me.  We can be blog buddies keeping it real!  Gotta go, I have a 3 mile walk with a friend later even though I just finished 2 miles in this humid heat.
