Dumb Bum/Saturday Findings

So I was chatting with my YAYA Katie the other day and she proceeded to give me an earful of "crap" as the weight loss ticker I had orginally had on my blog was from a diet pill company. For the record i am dead against diet pills, and just loved the ticker... I didn't realize where it came from... BAHAHAHAHAHAHA Yes DUMB BUM.. so thanks Katie for bringing this to my attention, I would hate to have endorsed that on my blog. LMAO

So yes I am on the weight loss quest. I have really approached this one with more smarts me thinks... I haven't cheated myself out of anything, but really have concentrated on portion size, and not snacking at night. Some days I came in under my points, and once this week I indulged in one extra point from my extra 35 weekly points. If you haven't guessed, I am on Weight Watchers. I have done the Online program as I know myself and have a hard time going to the meetings. I wasn't suppose to weigh myself until Monday, but I did yesturday and am already 2 pounds down.. Hee Hee.. Anyways this is going to take me a good year or two to get my weight down... but baby steps... I'll make it!

This weekend I hope to scrap.. we are looking to go apple picking tomorrow and enjoying a gorgeous weekend..
