Second week on Weight Watchers/Update

Okay... I know, I know! I have been completly MIA for the past few weeks, here and on YouTube.

I've been really into the Twilight Series books, and I finished Breaking Dawn last night. It is the best one by far. I had heard it was the best but as I was reading it (in the beginning) I didn't understand what was so great about it, then it finally clicked. Right now I'm reading Midnight Sun. It is the 5th book I suppose you could say. It is Twilight from Edward's veiwpoint. It is really good. It isn't finished, someone had leaked it on the internet and Stephenie Meyer had decided that she it would be put on hold indefinately. I'm really dissapointed about that because it is an amazing book. I love the insight into the inner workings of Edward's mind. I really hope that she will someday finish it and then maybe even write the other three books from the series in his point of view as well. Especially New Moon - that would be interesting!! Anyway, you can it at It is under the Midnight Sun section and you can download it to PDF. You can't print it, unless you can hack the encryption, but you can save it to your computer and read it.

Enough about Twilight - although I could talk about it forever.

My computer had been gone for nearly 2 weeks, back to Dell, to fix some issues I was having with the keyboard, touchpad, power supply, and to fix a USB port. Well, they only fixed the USB port and the power supply. So John is calling them and telling them they need to send someone to fix this stuff - the main reason no videos have been up in the past few weeks. I was on John's computer while mine was gone but his doesn't have the same software that mine has so I couldn't make any videos. I promise though, I will try.

I'm currently getting over being sick. EWW!! I want and need to go to the gym so bad
but the last few nights especially were horrible. Today I'm feeling better so I might go, let's pray I will be able to. =]

Anyway, my second week on Weight Watchers but okay. I kind of fell off the wagon after coming back from Disneyland but I'm trying to get back on it! I'm trying to drink my water and I have no real reason to not do so other than I forget. So, I had gained 4+ pounds after Disneyland and was really devestated. I knew I would probably gain some weight but I didn't think it would be that much since in 2.5 days, we walked over 25 miles, but I did. Well on Saturday I weighed myself and I lost those 4+ pounds and an additional 1.6! I'm very pleased. 1.6 is a great weight loss period, but to lose that (Saturday to Saturday) when I had gained weight back felt really good. I knew I would lose some of the 4 pounds but didn't think I would lose all of it or even lose more than that. So total, I am down 7.8 pounds in 2 weeks - pretty good if I do say so myself!

I haven't measured myself but I think John and I have decided that we will weigh ourselves every Saturday and measure every other Saturday since it can be a bit time consuming.

Anyway, that is what is going on for now. Hopefully this week will be better. I'm not sure I'll get in my hours at the gym this month (the 12 in the ticker) but I want to get as close to that as possible.

Thanks for all your support!
