Do you ever just want to SCREAM??!!

I have wanted to scream a bunch of times today and actually did a few times! Everything and everyone is getting on my nerves today! I don't know what my problem is, but I wish it would stop. So, tonight, I am praying for patience.

If things weren't already bad enough today, I told my sister that I would babysit tonight. I love my nephew, but 4 kids is bad enough at times, and then add another 1 1/2 yr old to the mix, and you have major chaos!! My poor little nephew is used to being the only child and getting all the attention. Around my house, it's just not possible! So, he cried and cried and cried some more, until I thought I was going to have to call my sister and tell her to come get him RIGHT NOW! (and take a couple more with ya too)

I know Valentine's day wasn't that long ago, but I need a break again already!

On a lighter note, my jeans are really getting too big now, and that feels great!! Until now, I had lost quite a bit of weight but my jeans still fit comfortably. It didn't make sense, but oh well, because they are getting big now!! Yay!!

Hello to all my faithful friends!! I see I've lost like 10 followers in a couple of days! I guess everyone is giving up on my updating my posts regularly. Here's a little of what I've been up too.
Valentine's Day: We(me, Jody, Keitha, and Michael) went to Little Rock to eat and go to the Comedy club! And both of us forgot our cameras!! Darn it! We had a blast though! The comedian's were hilarious! We came back Sunday. It was nice to have a break from the kiddos for a change!

My job is going well. I still, of course, wish I was getting paid more, but I can't complain, because at least now we can pay our bills and still have a little extra! I know this is not where I will be long term, but I'll stay until the right opportunity comes my way!

The kids are great too! Rowdy as ever!(or at least the girls are!) It's getting close to Baseball season again, and I'm excited about that. Both boys play and I enjoy watching.

I'm still loving my church and I just started going to a new small group last night and I enjoyed it a lot! It's great when you feel comfortable enough with everyone to say what you really feel and know that you want be looked down on for saying it!

I finally set up a plan to start getting my school loans paid off and I feel good about that too. It's going to take a very long time, but I still feel that my education was worth every penny it took to get me through it!

I do have a camera now! Yay!! It's not the best, but it's good, so I will start posting pics again soon!

Now, I'm off to catch up on some of my bloggy friends, so take care and I hope everyone has a wonderful week!!

Oh yea, in a couple of weeks I will do another weight loss update! I'm still going strong, but just not losing fast, but I feel so much better now and that's good for me!

Weight Loss Update

I know I'm due for a much needed weight loss update, so here it goes! I've had a lot of ups and downs on this adventure for sure, but I've stuck to it and am very happy with the way things are going.

Starting weight: 170
current weight: 155.5
Total Weight Loss: 14.5 lbs

I know that doesn't sound great after I lost 12 so fast, but I wasn't eating right when I lost those first 12 and I gained most of them back and started back the right way. I measured myself on Jan. 11 and I just measured again Sunday (Feb. 8) and I've lost a little over 8 inches all over! I'm very pleased with that. The hardest area for me has been my hips and thighs. They are making the slowest progress which is not helping me to drop sized very fast. My waist is getting alot smaller, so now I've just got to get my rear in gear!!

If anyone has any tips to slim the hips and thighs, please send them my way! I do squats, walk and run, but besides that, I don't really know what to do for those areas.

I hope to lose 5 more pounds this month, so we'll see!

I'm going to catch up on my blog reading soon too, so don't think that I've forgotten anyone!!
Love, Jenn
