.....I didn't make my 5 pounds by Valentine's Day goal.  I'm pretty much where I was two weeks ago, down a little, but not much.  That's okay, but not where I wanted to be.  The problem is me.  I have little will power.  I'm also not getting much exercise in.  I should be able to change that starting next week, as my meeting schedule improves.  I would really like to lose my weight using weight watchers, because it's eating real food, making real choices day to day, a program that can work for life.  I don't want to resort to one of those pre-packaged deals, but I may, if only for the rigidness that it will require.

I refuse to accept it

I got on the scale this morning and I refuse to accept what I saw.  I didn't stay within my points everyday, but I did a good job of staying within my weekly total.  I even got some exercise in.  I do feel like I have stuff going on with my body that may be causing fluctuations - like I think I am sliding into menopause - but what that scale told me this morning is wrong.  So, two things.  One, I'm getting a new scale because this one has been acting funny.  Two, I will weigh myself again tomorrow, see how things are going.  I don't see that I'm facing any challenges this week eating wise.  I will try to get some exercise in - but based on my schedule, that won't happen until Thursday.

Happiness is my New York Football Giants winning the Super Bowl!

Again.  Yes!  How exciting was that!  I think that the Giants have been in 3 of the most exciting Super Bowls played.  That would be the wide-right Super Bowl, the David Tyree helmet catch Super Bowl and the Mario Manningham tiptoe catch Super Bowl.  Or should that last one be the Ahmad Bradshaw butt first touchdown Super Bowl?  The first win was great, but it was not heart pounding exciting -like we might lose this exciting - as the last 3.  I remember the lean years.  The really lean years.  The losing years.  The Joe Pisarcik years.  The Ray Handley years.  They make these years and the Parcells years all the sweeter.  Happy days!

Friday Photos

Just some quick ones - a baby blanket I just finished for friends, shots of yarn - plucky knitter primo fingering - that will become a new shawl and an oldie but a goodie shot of my favorite dog.

Happiness is...

....a beautiful unseasonal mid-winter day.  When I say unseasonal - I mean in a good day.  Yesterday was mild here - temps in the 50s.  It was a extraordinarily nice day for January.  This has been a generally mild winter so far, but days like yesterday are always welcome in the middle of winter.  It reminds you that there is nice weather out there, nice weather to come.  It's like little gift from God to help get you through the winter.
