Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Getting Fat All By Myself

O.k. this week has been very interesting for me. My husband and both of my parents decided to start doing Weight Watchers. You ask what is the big deal about them doing Weight Watchers? Well I will tell you. I am now 13 weeks along in this pregnancy and am really feeling great. I want to eat food all the time and it is not always healthy either. I have been so good this pregnancy and really do want to stay healthy but what fun is being pregnant when you can't splurge, because you have everyone else around you eating carrot sticks and celery.

So guess what I did last night when hubby went to bed. I went to the store and got peanut butter cookies and Ben and Jerry's Peanut Butter Cup ice cream. I sat on the living room couch and ate two cookies and had half the pint of ice cream all by myself.

And guess what?

It was Awesome.

Then I decide to read my sister's blog and she is working on losing weight also and so is my really good friend in Texas. I am so proud of all of them.

But I have decided I will just have to get fat all by myself this pregnancy. I will enjoy all of those yummy treats while I sit alone on my big red couch.

Don't feel to sorry for me though it really is not going to be that bad.

So all of you out there getting in shape I will be right there with you in about six months.

If it helps, I got fat all by myself! While you and the rest of my friends and my hubby were skinny, I was fat by myself. I'm excited to be thin!

Well you enjoy your cookies and doesn't even sound good anymore to am down to drinking less than a can of soda a day and when I have one with dinner it just doesn't taste good. So I think the soda will be a thing of the past soon...I still gag when I drink water but I am drinking an entire 16oz a I drink decaf, diet white green tea....
