Whirlwind week.......

It's Friday as hard as that is to imagine.  The weeks are flying by and time is slipping like the sands in an hourglass....oops can you tell I grew up watching Days of Our Lives?  But it's true!  Where does the time go?

I'm joining Mrs. 4444 today at Friday Fragments to unload my week.

You've heard the old saying "nothing tastes as good as thin feels"?  Or something like that.  It's true!  And this comes from someone who loves to eat.  But  besides not having a muffin top, there is another huge benefit to weight loss.  This week I had my annual physical and got my blood work report.  My cholesterol dropped 62 points!  I am almost to the normal range.  Also for all those who are tempted to tell me I'm too thin, I asked the doctor and she said and I quote "absolutely not, you are healthier than you've ever been".  So let's just put that one to bed for good!

Another plus???  The Superhero decided to eat sensibly too and he's lost over 35 lbs.  Of course, men lose faster than women and that kind of hacks me off, but I'm so proud of him and when we went to buy new shirts because his old ones were hanging off his new and improved body, I saw how good he felt about himself! Win Win.....


Although it didn't happen this week, my granddaughter went to Hawaii and this is one of my favorite pictures!  

In BIG news, this sweet girl was born!  She was actually four weeks early but decided she was ready to get moving in the outside world!  
Meet Georgia Grace!  Brand new daughter to one of my like a daughter daughters.  I couldn't be more excited for Jeff and Emily!  


My computer is acting up and I don't know how to fix it.  Usually when I'm reading your posts, I can switch back and forth from your blogs to mine, but now when I try to do that, the internet just shuts down.  ARRGG!  The Superhero says.....I could help you but you switched to the dark that he means I have a Mac....oh, well!  


I am fascinated with the swimming and gymnastics portions of the Olympics and last night was jumping for joy for Gabby!  Not only did she give God the glory for winning the gold medal but that smile lit up the whole arena!  Every time they play our National Anthem on that stage I cry.  I'm emotional like that.


Well, friends, have a great weekend!  As for me?  I'm all fragged out!

Sigh. I need to lose weight too. Your tale is inspiring. Hope the early babe is healthy!

That baby is such a cutie. Welcome, Georgia Grace!

Way to go on the drop in your cholesterol! I agree: it's not fair that men can lose so much faster than we women, but congrats to your hubby for his weight loss!

Awesome picture of your granddaughter!

Yay for GG! I can't wait to meet her! xoxo

I enjoy watching the Olympics but but just don't have much time to, maybe today I'll see more. I watched some of the women's v-ball and diving last night which I enjoyed.

Dee said...

Dear Nancy, thanks for sharing the joyous news of your week. I'm wondering how you lost all that weight. Did you join Weight Watchers or just watch your calories or stop eating after a certain hour each evening. I'd love to know as I've been trying to lose twenty to twenty-five pounds and I just can't seem to get it off. Peace.

Auntie Bliss said...

Well I didn't come here to be jealous but I am!
I sure love food...and sitting, that's fun too. People tell you your skinny? That would be so fun to hear!
That baby is gonna be really cute...I want to see it again when it fills out.
Oh! congrats on the cholesterol hubby works on that all the time. I don't have high, thankfully.

Congratulations on the weight loss. I've been trying to eat well this week but not counting calories like I should be. I need to get serious about this ... everytime I see a photo of myself I get serious ... until I forget! Ha!

I personally think you look fantastic and I'm very proud of you and the Super hero. No small feat to have self control. Congrats on the new baby to spoil. :) Even if it's just the daughters friend. Spoiling babies is the best. (Cause you get to send them home afterwards.)
