Bright spots

I realize it's been a while since I updated you on my weight loss progress. Last night I achieved a milestone. I have now lost more than 25 pounds. It took a lot longer to lose the latest 10 pounds but I blame vacation for part of that.

While I'm proud of the progress so far I also know that I still have more to go. And I know that I have to be better about exercising. I've let that slip by the wayside for the past few weeks, mostly because I'm lazy and also because there always seems to be something that needs to get done.

My friend Natalie arrives in Charlotte today. The last time she came to visit we ended up buying our Honda Pilot. I'm hoping this visit is a little less expensive! We're going to grill out tonight and then we actually got a babysitter to go out for dinner tomorrow. I think that's a grand total of 3 times we've had a babysitter for Cameron. And I'm even having her come at 6 PM so she can do bedtime. Yes, I'm trying to let go of my need to control! Natalie has promised to take lots of pictures so expect to see a photo post sometime this weekend.

DH got a phone call yesterday from daycare. Cameron was bitten by her "friend" but she was fine. Is it wrong that I was relieved Cameron was the bitee rather than the biter?

Congrats! And I'm usually relieved when Holden isn't the instigator also. Have fun this weekend!

First, the weight loss: I bow before you. I still haven't gotten off my butt, but plan to know that life is returning to somewhat-normal. Keep up the good work - it's tough, but keep going!

As for the biting, no, it's not wrong that you were relieved - it just reinforces the fact that all the kids are going through this phase.

That, or have you been letting her watch the "Twilight" movies already? Maybe it's the new thing amongst toddlers...

Like LauraC said before,

You're doing great!! Wish I could be that focused for weight loss. My in-laws have joined spark people and it seems to be working for them, so maybe I'll try that.

As for the biting, I'd have sighed with relief that mine wasn't the biter. They do go through rounds of being the "bitee" and "biter", though.
