Groovy Bay-Be!

We're alive. We're still here. Just keeping very busy, as I'm sure you all are too. I started a job about a month and a half ago. It's been crazy! I've been training for 40 hours a week. Yes, I'm still going to do preschool! I love teaching! This job is primarily to get us through the summer and then to help with wedding costs a bit. Next week, I start my real shift. I'm very anxious to do that. It's less hours and a better time slot, so that makes me happy!
We've been spending much of our free time together at Lagoon. I think we've gone 6 or 7 times since we bought our season passports. We're having so much fun with that! Some day, we'll bring the camera along with us and snap some pictures, but in the meantime, you'll just have to take my word that we go there frequently, and we have fun!!
We've also treated ourselves to a couple movies. We saw Toy Story 3; excellent, by the way! Our family gave it 6 thumbs up! (we took Prince Charming along with us to celebrate his 22 birthday) This past weekend, we saw How To Train Your Dragon at the dollar theater. Very cute too!
Anyway, thanks for watching me ramble. I really just wanted you to know I haven't forgotten my blog. I DO enjoy reading all of yours and updating my own, as well. I hope to get my groove back on very soon!
Until then,

Oh, and lets not forget about the songs! I'm feeling groovy today. What about you? How about Groove is in the heart by Dee-lite, Get into the Groove by Madonna, and lastly, 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)

-25 and counting

If you've seen me lately, you may have noticed I'm missing something. 25 pounds. Well, 27.9 pounds to be exact. I've got more to go, but feeling great about my progress thus far!Those used to be my favorite pants!
Not to toot my own horn, but I've gone from a size 16 down to a 12 or sometimes, even a 10... depending on the manufacturer.
The last time I checked, I was down over 8 inches. (I haven't checked in a while though)
I've been doing weight watchers. Basically, that means, I'm watching my portions and making healthier decisions about what I'm putting in my mouth. I'm also exercising 4 to 5 times a week.

A couple weeks ago, I gathered all of my too big clothes and got rid of them! Dr. Phil says that you should get rid of 'em and never look back. If you keep them, it's like giving yourself permission to go back to your old size. I'm not going there. Ever again!
I'll let you know when I've reached another milestone worth sharing. Until then, Pounds lighter! (that's what my cute ww friend Carol tells me at the end of our meeting. Carol, I might add, just turned 75. She looks great! She's been a member for something like 20 years!)

I almost forgot the song of the day!! Oh my!
How about Fat Bottomed Girls by Queen
