Gratitude and where are we going tomorrow?: the holiday edition

Bubs has this undying need to ask me ten thousand times where we are going, and where we are going after that, and where we are going after that. I think it's partly due to that little controlling nature of his, and the fact that he is on a visual schedule at school, which he can commit to memory. So at night we have our little talk of the next days festivities, at least 37 times. I do try and turn it around and ask him the questions. So tonight he asked me about tomorrow. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I reiterated. I told him that first we would go visit his fraternal grandparents (not using those exact terms) at their friends house. Then we would go to my parents house (again, for the purpose of 'anonymity', the names have been changed to protect the innocent). He was intrigued by the idea of going to my in law's 'friend's house'. So we went over that one a few dozen times, I thought maybe the new person being introduced into the mix might account for the inquiries. Then of course we went over where we were going after that. Is this boring yet for anyone reading this? So after a few rounds I said to him in a kind, motherly sort of way, 'Please stop asking the same questions over and over again' (words I NEVER thought I would utter, and it's with great joy that I said them!). Bubs stopped for a second, got real close to my face and looked me in the eyes with his sweet mischievous smile and whispered ever so softly.....'where are we going tomorrow?'.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!!! I love Thanksgiving, it's a time when I get all sappy and sloppy about how lucky I am and there are no presents involved, just one of my favorite hobbies-eating comfort food. Enjoy the day, wherever you are going tomorrow!!!!

It was a really nice day! Hopefully I didn't blow my diet though, Jenny C is going to be mad at me!!!!!

Do you Jenny? Is it working for you?

I jenny, as a kind of last resort. I think overall it's working, but it's kind of expensive, which I guess helps me not to blow it. I am somehow able to 'reign myself back in' when I think about the hundred bucks a week it cost me. It kind of takes the thought out of it all, which I really needed at this point in time. Weight watchers was a complete disaster and self esteem ruiner for me. I have been on it almost two months and I have lost almost 14lbs. So I guess it's going ok. It is helping me get used to smaller portion sizes, which is a personal goal of mine and I am exercising. I was getting disgusted with myself and somehow, that feeling is going away, which is good too. Ok, I am rambling...lol, I tend to do that sometimes...

It's so weird. I had success on both WW and JC at different times of my life, but once I had Roxie almost five years ago,nothing and I mean NOTHING could get the weight off. Now I'm doing the liquid fast, and it's working.

It really is a state of mind thing, you know? Totally individual, too. Keep on keepin' on!

It is crazy. I have lost and gained people in my lifetime. If I had just not started the whole crazy ordeal back in eighth grade, I wouldn't be in this predicament now. WW is a great program but it's not one I can be trusted with at this time. I picked JC because I am just so tired about thinking about food. If I could actually follow ww, I wouldn't need to be on a diet. The liquid diet is hard, but it also takes away the choice. Sometimes choice makes me nuts. You are rocking the liquid diet though, good for you!!!
