It took me 6 months to lose 30 lbs, but I couldn't be more proud of myself! I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, I feel like I just won the lottery, I feel like I can do ANYTHING!!!
Today couldn't have come at a better time. I've been really down lately and this is the best "pick-me-up" I could have asked for!
Whoot Whoot.....that's me tooting my own horn!!! Yea for me!!

I made 45 of these bad boys to take to my fiance's Thanksgiving this past weekend and I only came home with 5 of them. To get my point across even more you need to understand that there were only 7 people at this dinner and we managed to wipe out 40 cookies!
They are only 1 weight watcher point each which was a bonus for me!!
Please go here for the recipe!
For those of you who don't know....Hudson is a football town. We basically eat, sleep and breath football. At one time, our Hudson Tigers held the world record for most consecutive wins - 72 - by a high school football team. This record has since been surpassed by Concordia (CA) De La Salle High School, unfortunately.
We are headed to Ford Field in Detroit this weekend to watch our Tigers do their thing. We've got our hotel room booked and I'm counting down the days!

Well folks......here's my dilemma: I have no clue where to even begin shopping for this item. Do I have to go to a store like Best Buy or maybe a department store like Sears? Or would someplace like ABC Warehouse have this? I am stumped. And my next question is....how much does surround sound even cost? I might be in way over my head here!

Not only is Thanksgiving only 2 weeks away, but my sister's birthday is on the same day. I can't wait to spend time with the family, relax, and of course, do a little Christmas shopping. I'm already totally pumped up for Black Friday! I love the adrenaline rush of waking up early to stand in the freezing cold just to try and beat the person behind you to the best deals possible.
But to be totally honest, I'm most excited about having some much needed time off work. I will not be working the Wednesday before Thanksgiving or the Monday after....yes, you do the math...that's 6 days of nothing but total awesomeness!! Sleeping in, decorating the house, shopping, spending time with family.......I can't think of a better way to spend my mini-vacation.

I am declaring to the blogging world that today is the day I turn things around. I am going to start counting points again and planning my meals. I am only 3 lbs away from my WW goal weight and only 8 lbs away from my personal goal weight and I know I can do this!!!! It's only a couple weeks away from Thanksgiving and if I don't get my butt (mind) in gear and get back on program I am going to regret it. I can do this........I can do this!!!

Now I just need to get me a new house......with 2 stories, pillars on the front porch, a long driveway, a brick gate and some pine trees out front! I better start my Dear Santa letter.

My sister called me today with some very good news and since our phone call I can't stop smiling. I am so happy for her. It is the best feeling in the world to know that someone you love is so happy, so excited, so full of life! She has always been my inspiration and today she inspired me to be happy!
I couldn't be more proud of my sister and I hope she knows that.
