Progress x3

Number One
If you remember my tutorial from last week, you will now see that we have made some progress.
Let's just pan a little to the right.

That would be the waste paper basket.
It's all good.

Number Two
I've been eating better and exercising with my Wii fit.
Here is last week.

At 168.
Here is this week.
At 164.
I call that progress. 
Unless of course my big fat gray slippers that I wore the first time weigh 4 lbs. 

Number Three
I wanted to thank everyone who sent prayers out for my Daddy.  He had some very extensive surgery last week.  Once they got in, they found that some additional things needed to be taken care of so the surgery was much more invasive and difficult than they had originally thought.  However, he has done remarkably well and is recovering nicely.  He was expected to stay in the hospital for 10 to 14 days and now they are sending him home, just 6 days after the surgery.  I appreciate the prayers so very much.  God is so good.

Such great news about your Dad, wonderful to hear about, and the family must be thrilled! Now about those slippers, they don't weight no stinkin 4 pounds, so that means it is you, you go girl! It's Monday, have a great week.

Wonderful news about your Dad and your scale. I recommend weighing in your underwear because you automatically get to deduct 10 lbs.

Holly said...

Laraine: What the hell kind of underwear are you wearing??

First of all Holly, I am so glad to hear that your Dad did so well with his surgery. Does he have someone there near him to help him out at home? And next...WAY TO GO!!! I was down 4.5 lbs this week too! But my Saturday night shenanigans may have shot the progress for this week!!! Oh well, I move on!
Have great day kid!!

I hate when I'm behind on reading my blogs, especially yours and Larainy's. Because then I go back and read all of the ones I've missed in the last few days, and I want to comment on every single post. But that's so labor-intensive, ya know?

Some key thoughts: Your daughter is a doll. Your husband is lucky to have a cupcaking, toilet paper-teaching wife. Good job on the Wii fit. I'm going to try that Lemon Pledge trick. And last but certainly not least, I'm so glad to hear that your dad is doing well.

I am so happy that your dad is doing good now Holly!!

Ha, I love Brian to death as you know but this is soooo hilarious! Hmmm I could do a little needlework sign for you with directions for how to replace the "TP" and a little sticked TP on it. hahaha

I too am happy about your dad doing so well after extensive surgery. It is just awful to be in the hospital so long so I am sure he is a happy man to be able to go home sooner that he expected.

I too lost weight last week, 3 1/2 pounds. It seems like everybody I know is trying so hard to lose weight this month. We just didn't do as well in Jan and Feb as we had hoped, so are really having to be super careful. Good luck to you!
