Sunday Blues

My scale was finally delivered on Friday, but my Mother is here for a visit, and I haven't really had the chance to play with it yet. I do know, however, that I am not worthy of a new 25 lbs. lost bling quite yet.

My food has been fine since my Mom arrived and we have even been exercising. So, I hope that I will continue to do well once she leaves. For some reason, I have noticed in the past that when visiting family leaves, I start to get the munchies, probably due to feeling blue I would guess. I am very close to my Mom, and I hate to see her go today. She is extremely helpful around the house. She does my laundry (folds and puts away!), goes grocery shopping, and loves to take over the care of my little ones. She rocks! I have been pleading with her all morning not to leave, but the time has come. :(

One new NSV for me...I was able to wear a pair of capris, yesterday, that I haven't been able to wear. I bought them too small a few years ago hoping for some motivation. They could be a little more comfortable, but hey, I didn't have to suck in or lay down to get them buttoned! That works.

I'm so glad you are doing so well with company at your house! That is terrific. And the capris--great job too. I know it's so sad to see family go. My sister and her family are moving away and it's about to kill me...

Great NSV! All my family lives close by, so I can't imagine how hard it is to live without them. Hang in there!

It must be so hard to not have your mom close by. Stay strong though, you have really been doing great. Getting into those pants sounds like a big deal. Great Job!

Congratulations on fitting in to those capris! it's got to be one of the best feelings in the world!
Your mom sounds exactly like mine: a God send.
It's great that you got to spend some time together and get a hand around the house!
Good luck on a fantastic week!

we need a pic of you in the capris! I am close to my mom too. When we lived away and she came to visit, I was in heaven. Moms just have a way of knowing what you need ;)
