Weight Watchers Wednesday, Week 24

It is Weight Watchers Wednesday, Week 24 and this week I lost a whopping .3 lbs, for a running total of, brace yourself here, 30 lbs.!! It has been a long time coming and I have had as much time off the "diet" as on, but I am relieved to finally reach 30 lbs. I still hope to lose a lot more weight, but this is the most I have ever lost so it is a milestone for me.

In the area of exercise, I have been busy busy after the boys and their 2 cousins from TN this week. We went swimming in the river, to the beach, swimming in the pool, and riding on my paddleboat. I've also discovered that the trampoline is a great workout. We just put it back up this week, and jumping and chasing the kids had me sweating like crazy!

I haven't shared pics of myself in a while, and haven't gotten any really good ones, so here are a couple fun ones from the past week. Those two specs are my MIL and I swimming from our dock to theirs at the river. I swore I would never do a bathing suit shot, but I thought this was HILARIOUS! I went down the slide at the river and Mom got the funniest pic of me holding my nose, and sporting Lon's huge lifejacket. While I can swim pretty good, the river is unpredictable and we make the boys ALWAYS wear life jackets so I do too. I'm a bit of a nervous nelly that way.
And here we are taking the paddleboat out for it's maiden voyage.
For this week's recipe I am gonna just send you to another blog I found. It is called Gina's Weight Watchers Recipes, and let me tell you it is INCREDIBLE! I am making my grocery list from this site today. She not only has mouthwatering recipes, but her pics are gorgeous and she has a ton of useful info. like a WW calculator, Restaurant food lists, etc. This is truly a goldmine if you are on Weight Watchers. So go over and visit Gina. Show her some comment love and tell her that her newest fan sent you!

I would like to lose at least 40 lbs. I am back up to my highest weight ever, and not liking it at all. You keep up to great work! Jackie
