Weekly Weigh In

Well, today is the last weigh in for the year. Last January 5th I started out on a journey. I set a goal for myself to lose 70 pounds by January 1st, 2012. Today I weighed in and lost 3.7 pounds in the last week, bringing my year total to 81.8 pounds lost. I not only reached my goal I surpassed it. I'm happy with my progress, but know I still have a long way to go. I hope to continue this journey well into the new year.

I've decided to be brave and share some progress pictures, keep in mind I'm only half way to my end goal.

Christmas Day

Grace woke up at 6am and was so happy to find a present in her room. She started opening presents right away.
 Cole and I gave Grace this huge doll/barbie house that we had gotten used. We filled it with a bunch of older Barbie furniture we had from Cole's sister. Thankfully Santa brought Grace some updated furniture, so the house is more update!
 Cole and I also bought Grace a new toy box, I had a feeling she would need one, with all the new toys she was getting.
 So excited about her new jewelery box!
 Opening up her new Barbie furniture
 more Barbies
 rollerskates. Yup, Grace asked for rollerskates in December in New England. I don't think they will get much use until springtime
 Lily was very happy so got a new snowman to kill.
 Finally around 6:30 we decided to wake the babies, before Grace opened up all the presents.

 Carter was so excited about his new trucks, he's such a boy!
 Emma was so sad we couldn't get her doll out fast enough.
 After we finally got through all the presents we got dressed to head to the Brennans'. Just look at that toy mess!

We had another great Christmas. It has taken me days, but I almost have found a place for every new toy!
