Great weekend!

I have been a little MIA haven't I.  I just got home from my family reunion in New Mexico.  We left on Thursday about 2pm and drove to Benson, AZ.  We stayed the night and then drove the rest of the way into Mimbres, NM.  I got to see some family who lives in Virginia and Texas that I haven't seen for many years.  It was so beautiful there.  I will have to down load the pictures soon and add them.  For now I have added the one below of all of us after Church on Sunday.  We bring benches out from the lodge and put them on the basketball court so we can have Church under the trees.

There were about 65-70 famiily members in attendance, but there were many extended family members that weren't there that I wished would have come, but I know it's hard having young kids. Hopefully there will be a better turn out next time.

I haven't been losing any more weight, just maintaining lately.  I plan to start trying to lose some more again this week.  Vacation is over and I can refocus on weight loss and healthy living.

Hello There

Hello there little blog,  It's been awhile since I wrote.  Since the last time I completed the Hero Rush 5k Fire Fighter themed obstacle course with my husband and I had many bruises to show for it.  There were 19 obstacles with a lot of water  too.  It was a lot of fun and a really cool medal to show for it.  I ordered some pictures at the race hoping there were some good ones, but I don't have them yet.  I will have to add them later.

The 4th of July was a pretty nice day.  We had the family over to our house and BBQ'd some hot dogs and burgers.  We also had some potato salad, fruit salad, chips, and watermelon.  We had banana pudding for dessert.  The kids played in the pool and the adults played a game.  Then that night we just went out to the front yard and watched the fireworks all the neighborhood people set off.  It's legal where we live to buy and set them off.  The last two years we weren't around for all the good stuff that happens just in our neighborhood.  We had no idea.

I was 198 this morning so no real big losses in the last two weeks, but I have been able to hold steady under 200 which is really nice.  I finally broke down and bought some more jeans. I kept putting it off because I don't really want to buy to many things when I hope to keep going lower and lower.  But my jeans were super baggy and unattractive.  I actually managed to squeeze into some stretch 14's today.  If they weren't stretchy i wouldn't have fit into them, but it was nice to actually fit into them.  They fit like a glove though.  Pretty tight so it will encourage me to lose some more weight.  We are going on vacation in two weeks to my family reunion.  I am looking forward to going to it a lot smaller than I was last time.

I hope you all are doing well and that you had a nice 4th of July.
