Happy Mother's Day

Weight Loss Jounery
The best gift I can give my kids is to take care of myself. So, I can be able to take care of them in return. In less, than a week. I dropped 5 pounds...that's right! FIVE POUNDS. Nope, I'm not starving myself either. I just cut out all sugar and carbs. Look at the difference...

I have lost 37 pounds!

Do you see, what I see? Yup, my wedding ring finally fits. It's a little bit snug but at this rate. It will hopefully be too loose by the end of the month.
Everything that I do is for my kids. Trying to keep up with the kids is hard enough. We went to Silver Dollar City yesterday, I must of walked over 3 miles. Thanks, for my FitBit. Loosing weight couldn't be easier.
I only have about 7 more pounds to go before reaching my last weight loss goal. I'm almost there.

update weight loss pictures

I did it.
I have lost 34 pounds!
The pictures on the bottom are from 20 days ago.
The difference is amazing.
I'm now, down to 142 pounds.
I need to lose two more pounds to be considered a healthy BMI.
I'm hoping to lose ten more pounds. I want to get to my pre-pregnancy weight from Leilani which was 132lbs.
Plus, all of you...who told me not to worry about losing the weight. I'm glad I didn't listen to all that negative talk. Talking care of myself, means I can take better care of my family.
I'm hoping to lose ten more pounds before my birthday which is May 30th.
Five years ago, I lost a ton of weight and it was right before my birthday. I remember how shocked my family was when they saw me. I'm hoping to do it again.

Ten on Tuesday

1. First things first, it's been a long time since writing up a Ten on Tuesday list. Sorry, I feel really bad about this but I have been so busy with the new baby.

2. Let's see, as of this morning. I have lost over 26 pounds. I'm using my fitbit plus counting calories but I have discovered that I'm very sensitive to carbs. I discovered, I had a problem with my last and final pregnancy. I was borderline GD. I'm using a low carb diet with lots of healthy protein and fats. The fat is melting right off my body. I'm not even exercising. I'm just walking and chasing after the kids. I'm hoping to lose close to 45 pounds total. I have about 19 more pounds to go. I'm hoping to lose most of the weight before summer break.

3. Lindsey isn't the easiest baby but it turns out she was just gassy which was making her very upset and fussy. She's gaining weight like crazy. Leroy thinks I'm overfeeding her but I don't think that's possible with a breastfeed baby. She's already up to 11 pounds and outgrowing her 0-3 months clothes.

4. Leah keeps crying over every little thing. It's so annoying. I'm not ready for this emotional stage. She's so overly dramatic, what happened to our tomboy?

5. Leilani is super crazy about her little sister. She loves to hug her and give her tons of kisses. She's a little bit too friendly with her sometimes. She's all about smothering her with love. It's super cute.

6. We went to Silver Dollar City with my best friend. We managed to survive the whole trip with 9 kids. We had a really good time until it started to rain:( We had so much fun, that I decided to go ahead and buy season tickets. We're not going on vacation this year. So, we will be spending a lot of time up in Branson. It's about a two hour drive.

7. Landon just started baseball. They lost their first game but Landon was a good sport about it. He usually doesn't like to lose. The baseball schedule is insane. He has three games a week plus practices. Also, most of his games start at 8:00pm. He didn't make it home last night until 10:30pm. It's going to be a long season.

8. Leroy surprised me with a car. It's nothing practical but it has to do with our "love/engagement" story. It's a '78 Spite Fire Triumph. He will be restoring it back to it's original condition. I just need to decided on what color I want my car to be painted? Any ideas?

9. Leah just started Tennis lessons. She will go two times a week for the next six weeks. She had her first lesson on Monday, she did a really good job. I really want her to stay active. She doesn't have anyone to play with after school. So, I decided that tennis would be a good fit for her.

10. Logan isn't doing anything at the moment. He's kinda of loner and likes to do his own thing. He's just in scouts at the moment and likes to spend his free time playing Minecraft which should be called "minecrack".

Pretty as A Princess!

My latest creation. The prefect Spring dress. It's girly and magical all at the same time. She's in love with her new dress. She wants a whole closet full of these type of dresses. Isn't it beautiful?

20 Months Old

Our little baby girl is no longer the baby in the family. The new baby arrived a couple of days late which means she came on the day that Leilani turned 20 months old. Now, I'm a little bit late writing up this post but Leilani no longer seems like the baby anymore. It's strange, how over night everything can completely change for the rest of your life. Ms. Leilani is a "mini big sister". I was worried that she would be jealous of the new baby but that's not the case at all. She loves being the big sister. She can't get enough of Lindsey. I foresee them being the best of friends.
Leilani is now talking in very short sentences. Here's some of her favorite phrases.
This is what she started to call the new baby..."hi, you". Now, two weeks later, she calls the baby "hi, Baby".
Also, when she wants to pick up the baby which she isn't allowed to do. She will say "Help, me!"...I usually find her hovering over the baby trying her darnest to pick her up.
She's only regressed a little bit but overall, she's just growing up fast.
Leilani is no longer, sharing a room with Leah. She moved into the boys old bedroom. She will be eventually sharing a room with the new baby.
