**UPDATED** Wow, it's been a while...RANDOM

It's been quite some time since I've posted a new blog post. I'm so sorry. I promise I will get pictures and stories of Charlene's stay with us up soon. The reason I haven't posted is becuase I have been doing Weight Watchers and there's a blog section on their on-line tools. Most of my blogs have been weight related and I chose to put them there instead of on here. I have been doing okay, until the last few weeks. As of today's weigh-in, I've lost 40.8lbs. I feel better, but I have a LONG way to go still. I would like to lose at least another 55lbs. PHEW, that seems like it will NEVER happen, and I'm struggling.

We're very busy with baseball and T-ball right now, and graduation is in 2 weeks. Ammon's 8th birthday is one month from tomorrow, and his baptism is 1 month and 5 days away. We have family coming in for his baptism, and things are going to be crazy between now and then.

Charlene will be heading back to China on June 26th. She's both excited to go back home and wishing she didn't have to leave. She is hoping to go to College in Seattle next year. I hope she is able to reach that goal!

Jason and I will celebrate our 10th anniversary July 1st. Has it really been that long? (Read: WOW, hasn't it been longer than that...HA, HA). We're heading to Hocking Hills June 30 - July 2. We're renting a CUTE cabin ( ). I can't wait! The kids are mad that they don't get to come, but hey, if we like may become our new family vacation spot!

Heather wanted to see pics. As much as I HATE pics. I am happy with the improvement from one to the other on these. The bottom one is at my heaviest, just 1 year before I started WW. The top pic was taken in Kansas City on Spring Break. I chose this one so you could all see the kids too =0)

I'm glad to you posted. We've missed you.
I've said it before, and I'll say it are looking great! This is one of those road blocks our bodies love to throw at us. As a matter of fact, you may be loosing inches even if the scale doesn't say anything. What do they say? It may not be easy, but it will be worth it. :o)
Life did get busy. You are going to LOVE a quiet break with your hubby in July.

Nice to have you back blogging here!! Good for you with the weight loss. I have been trying to do weight watchers but tend to have a break down once a week. Keep up the work. I agree with Cassie. Always wish the scale would show a smaller number, but inches work too. I want to see pics!!! Love and miss you!!

Wow! What an amazing change in your weight. Congratulations, I know that's a big mountain to climb. I know because I'm standing at that base of that mountain looking up, getting ready to climb. You're an encouragement to me that it can be done :)
