Weekend Wrap up and Mad Monday Weigh In...


How is everyone?!?!?

This last week has been SO busy!! Let's see, my last blog was Wednesday, seems like forever ago! Thursday was my daughters actual birthday, so we all met for dinner at a hibachi place! It was excellent!! Love the tricks they do with everything! We had a great time!
She loves tea and wanted a tea set, so her sister got her all set up!
She was so excited she even showed her sister some love!! 
This is a painting I have been working on for a week. It's not done. Kind of taking my time. It's getting there! There is still rocks and a light house coming :-)
Friday evening the family arrived! Both brothers came!! I was so excited! Been a long time since I had seen them. The eldest brother and his socks! Love the socks!  
My younger brother came too!! He danced with me :)

Saturday night was my daughters Sweet 16. We had so much fun!! We danced for hours. Great people and great music! 
A few pictures for your entertainment!!

 Sunday we lounged around. We were all tuckered out after our night of dancing!! Even Frost was tired!
 My brother played tennis with the girls, I watched with my other brother!
My nephew moved out and went to live with his father. That was sad.... But it is what it is.

Exercise has been great! I took Thursday as a rest day, Friday I biked 7.6 miles. Saturday I ran 3.25 miles! It was hot but I managed and I felt good afterwards.
Which brings me to my Mad Monday weigh in. Not sure what is going on here. Sunday morning the scale said 206.8, so I was kind of expecting good news Monday. I have been struggling to get all my water in, I think I'm retaining. I have been slacking in this department. We had candy left over from the party Saturday too, but I did not eat 2 lbs worth! I do feel like I am retaining water.
Monday's weigh in...208.2. Loss of .2 lbs. A loss is a loss. Plateau maybe? I really want to be on the other side of 200!! I've been playing around this weight for like a month almost. I guess I can't really complain. I have lost 4.6 lbs this month.
So my totals are:
66.6 lbs down since 8/22/12!
52.0 lbs down since surgery on 10/15/12!
Calories today are at 1325.7. That is where I intend to remain the rest of the evening. Hopefully next week will be better!
I am off to read your blogs! Have a great evening everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Today I biked 9.61 miles. Tomorrow is a run day!

    I love hibachi restaurants, and using my WLS surgery card to allow me to order the children's portion for $6! haha Looks like you guys had a great time.

    A loss is a loss is a loss...enjoy it, regardless. You're going in the right direction!

  4. Looks like a great time... I hope for the best for your nephew. So sad. I hope you guys are allowed to keep in touch.

  5. I'm glad you enjoyed your week and your family. you look great

  6. What a great family you have! Even Frost! :)

  7. Sounds like a great week, lots of activity and fun stuff. I think you did pretty well with the weigh-in considering that you had visitors and a party and all! Sorry about your nephew; I hope he will do well with his dad.

  8. Great pictures. It's real important to drink enough water, especially if you're physically active. You are likely retaining. Hope things work out for your nephew with his dad...

  9. Looks like a really fun time with family. I`m jealous!
