Happy Thanksgiving

I woke this morning to a sweet three year old stroking my face, reminding me how thankful I am for her in my life. We played, put up the Christmas tree, peeled potatoes, and set up the table. The turkey is about to go in the oven. Maggie is dressed up as Belle and watching the Muppets movie (I forgot how much I LOVE this movie--can't get much better than the Rainbow Connection!)

This afternoon, we have my family, his mom and stepdad, and our good friends the Lintons and the Kriegers all descending upon our house for a Thanksgiving feast. We're doing the turkey, mashed potatoes, and my personal favorite--the best homemade yeast rolls ever. YUM. Everyone else will be contributing an item to put on the table.

As for the weight loss--I'm not stressing about it today. I'm 8.5 lbs down! I'm going to enjoy one meal but not let it get the best of me. I'll be back on track tomorrow. You can't really see my weight loss yet, but I can tell in some of my pants. Several jeans fit again. My big goal--20 lbs down. That will put me at what I was when I got pregnant with Maggie. I at least want to be down there before I begin trying to get pregnant. 11.5 lbs left to go!

Best wishes to all my friends and family on this day of thanks. Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving (a day late!) I am joining you on the weight loss adventure...so I can start trying for another baby. I have been struggling with weight loss since having baby #2... nearly 3 years ago. Holidays or not...I am determined!!!
