WI last week

I lost 5 woo hoo!!! I can't wait till it stops fluctuating sooo much. Its driving me mad, but I think it has to do with stress, hormones, etc. Schmoop and I both got new jobs (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) last Tuesday. Which means that Schmoop is getting sprung from the land far far away and is moving in about 5 minutes from me!!! I'm so excited my life feels like everything is coming together, everything I've ever hoped and prayed for is coming true. Its hard for me to be anything but grateful right now, which is a good problem to have!
It has been a bit stressful though, I'm not completely moved yet and now Schmoop is in the middle of moving. We both quit our jobs and are getting new ones. We are starting to look for a house and looking seriously towards marriage. Its like every life change that could be is happening, so weird. It seems like there were so many times that I just prayed that something would happen. I was soo unsure of what was coming in the future that I just wanted it to happen to get it over with. Its amazing to see how God's plan is coming together though, just teaches me that I just need to trust in Him more that He will lead me and guide me in His perfect way. Sometimes I look back and wish that Jason and I would have gotten together right when he started at Cendant but we both had serious things to work through, and those things have made us who we are today. I can't wait to see whats in the future.

So I was looking through some stuff I've found about NY's fashion week. I was kind of curious to see what would make the runways. Most times its ridiculous and absurd, but in a way that makes you take a double take. It makes me laugh.
Well anyway i was looking and i saw this crazy picture of a girl that was so incredibly skinny it looked like she might not be able to stand on her own. She was modelling a bikini and I remembered something I read about Italy banning "skinny" models on the runways. Hopefully this is the start of celebrating healthy women, not women who have to starve themselves and do drugs to keep their emmaciated figure. Anyways, I'm just trying to get to average.
By the way, i gained some last week (5!), and lost two this week. What the heck!! still down 23, still plodding along. Going to try to cut out alot of the soda I drink and keep a closer eye on my point values. Maybe I'm estimating too much or something, but I will get this right and I will be healthy!!

Reliving my past part II Switzerland

So i finished uploading my Paris pics, and just finished my Switzerland.
Here are some of my favorites...
It really says something about a country if you feel calmer after you just look through some of your pictures. I can't wait to go back, it was one of the most beautiful places, if not the most beautiful place I've ever been.
The first two pictures were taken out the train window. If you ever go to Switzerland go on the Glacier Express(a train that goes through the Swiss Alps). It really takes you through some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole world.


I'm still kicking myself that i didn't buy this hat.

This tree was on the side of the road when we were walking through Interlacken to go do our laundry.

Reliving my past

I'm uploading pictures to my Shutterfly account, so I started on the pictures from Europe. We had soo much fun and things were so beautiful. Here are some pics from Paris, if you want to see more go check out the Shutterfly. I'm not quite sure how to do it, so when i figure that out I'll let you know but for now here are a few of my favorites.
Forget you are staring at a computer screen and pretend we are walking along stopping and having some brie with our baguettes. Taking in the sights, the art, the leasure... Then buy a ticket and lets go!

the Arch de Triumph

A wonderful pic my schmoop took that screams Paris to me.

This little picture actually takes up the whole wall of part of the Louvre. It was my favorite piece of art that I saw. If you take a look there is a woman in the bottom left of this picture that will show you how massive this thing is. Its called the Wedding at Cana (and its also located directly behind the Mona Lisa)

This is the Sacre Coeur ( I don't think that was spelled right)

Smells better than any peanut I've ever smelled...

As I said I went to see Mama K and her little Peanut, here are some of the pics

Just looking....

Look at him checking out that Lion! He's just working on his ROAR! (obscure disney reference). For Mama's sake I hope he stops working on his Roar....

Sleepy man, check out those hands. Gonna be a big guy!


why I don't wear fruity smells

Schmoop says I should rename my website, "my boyfriend the carnivore"

WW Week 15 and 16

Ok so last week I was moving, and I gained .5, this week I lost 5 lbs. Whew, was starting to freak out after two weeks of small gains. I've been doing my points but still. So I'm VERY HAPPY with my HUGE LOSS!!
This puts me up to 26lbs gone! Woo-Hoo!!!
To put this in perspective its like taking 3 gallons of milk off of my body. WOW! Thats how big WW says it is anyway, I haven't quite figured out how that actually goes.... Where you take the milk gallons from and so forth...
I haven't noticed tooo much myself but I have a feeling the next 10 will really show. :)

I promise to get off my lazy bum and post some pics soon, really, I swear I will... Honestly... Pictures will be forthcoming.
I went to see Mama K yesterday and little Wesley so I have a plethora to post I just have to get the little nudge in my side to sit at the computer to do it. Have a safe and happy Holiday weekend people!
