I Have Been Blessed

All about how God has blessed me. In my marriage, with my six children, through homeschooling, and our faith with recipes, large family living, and updates on our life.

Weight Watchers Points Plus

It was time. Time to make a change, so that the number on the scale started to go down, instead of up, or stagnant. With the last pregnancy, I gained ten pounds right away, and I guess although I miscarried, my body thought it should hold onto those ten pounds, you know, just in case.

Throughout January I have been counting calories, but it’s a pain, for one, and in three weeks, I only lost two pounds. And for all the work, I need a little better results!!! Mom has been thinking about going to Weight Watchers, so I invited myself and tagged along. We had our first meeting last Thursday, and just like at the scale at home …. I was THE NUMBER minus my two pounds.

Tomorrow is our weigh in day…..hopefully I take a few more pounds off THE NUMBER!!! Pray for me as I go on this real weight loss journey.

If you are on the journey too, I have started a Yahoo Group for encouragement, recipe swaps, etc.  WW Points Plus Pals – you can join here:


Five Special Blessings to Me today: Mom (with whom to do WW with – my natural encourager), Austin (my cheerleader, support person), Brendyn (who will ask about everything I put in my mouth – “How many points is that Mom?”), a WW Calculator (carried with me where ever I go right now until I figure out how many points it is!!), and God (who Will Give me the victory over my weight loss!!)

Hope you have an especially Blessed Day!
