It's been such a long, long time!

Not that long, but I liked the title. I just realized it has been 10 days since I last posted. Life has been busy. I have almost lost 55 pounds, hopefully by tomorrow I will have that .1 pound to make it 55. My goal is to have 60 pounds gone by Sept. 8. I will take more than that though. :)

I am feeling really good, I do have a small cold right now, but nothing major. The kids were so kind to give it to me. I told Bobby that he needs to be all better before Wednesday when he starts school. He does fine during the day, it is at night when he does his coughing. I still can't believe he is starting school. He is very excited.

We had are pictures taken on Saturday by Sam at Memory Park. She was great! She was very patient with the kids and we had a lot of fun. I will post some of the pictures when we get them. While she is building her portfolio, she is only charging $25 for a 1 hour photo shoot with up to 4 people. She also does fantastic Wedding photos. Mary wouldn't smile pretty much the whole time so, we will have serious pictures of her. :) Over all both kids did good. Thanks Sam!!

Emotionally Joe says I have been very touchy and taking things way to personally. Which I have been, but I am not sure why. Maybe because I am still tired a lot of the time. I am working on it. I am praying all the time to have patience with others. Trying to have patience with my kids. He has been great with the kids. We have starting to read scriptures almost every night, which is nice to get the kids to settle down. We have turned the TV off. We will have a movie night once a week or on special occasions. That and Bobby can earn TV or a movie. We were just having too many fits over TV. It was becoming too important.

I will try and post more often. Thanks for reading! :)

So it could be that some emotional issues are surfacing regarding eating and lack of using that as a coping mechanism.

It is important to be honest with yourself. I highly recommend hand writing in a personal journal for your eyes only. Be completly honest with yourself.

Here are some good paragraph starters:

I used to eat when I felt..... and now I .........

I feel ........

I want to tell ......., that I feel ........

The thing I miss most about food is.........

or

the food I miss the most is........

I saw your pics on her blog. They are cute. The "mad" pics of Mary are cute. They are usually the most memorable when they get older. I have some with Jackson, he was a stinker that day and now I have the pics to prove it.

Keep up the good work! I am having mood swings too - maybe it is being in our 30's hee hee.
