Gotta love Easter

I hope everyone's Easter was amazing. Mine always is. Easter is my favorite "holiday". I hate calling it a holiday, I don't know why, it just sounds weird to me to call it that. But I guess it is a holiday, it's a day of celebration and remembrance, and that is after all what a holiday is. I am so unworthy and overwhelmed with what Jesus did for me on the cross, that I tear up on a normal day. Having a whole day set aside just to remember his death and his victorious resurrection makes me happy! Of course Christians should live everyday like it's Easter, but life sometimes gets in the way of that unfortunately. Thank you God....."in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us"....., He died for me, He loves me, a horrible, wretched unworthy sinner! But praise God, the blood of Jesus covers those sins! Gives me goose bumps thinking about it, phew!

My weight loss is ok this week. I was down to 162.6 yesterday, but I am up a pound or two from that today. I let myself have a "free" day on Easter, gotta let myself endulge sometime or I'll quit, and that caught up with me today. I got right back on track yesterday, so hopefully after a few days of eating right again, my weight will start falling again. I don't regret that free day though, totally worth it! Gotta love chocolate marshmallow bunnies! So my weight is somewhere around the 163-164 mark. Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Easter pics

Had a great Easter, here are a few pics.

Gwen had a major meltdown when we took her easter basket candy away from her to get her ready for church, so here were the best pics we could get with her in them.

She and I.

All the kids.


Having a chocolate bunny for breakfast. It's easter, it's tradition.

Thanks for looking.

Cravings, ahhhh!

This week has been the toughest week I've had with having bad cravings. I am wanting to eat all the time! The thing is on the eating plan I am on I eat alot, so much that sometimes I am amazed that I lose weight because of the amount of food I am allowed to eat! It is very healthy food, but still, it just doesn't seem right.

Anyway, I am craving ALL things that are bad for me, I haven't given in, thank God, but wow has it been tough. I think that pms is doing this to me, I was reading on a weight loss support group and they said pms can be the culprit. So hopefully, next week will be much better, at least the cravings might be gone, lol. And I have been soooo tired, moreso than normal, I will be glad when those two things are gone.

I believe I have lost a pound or two this week so that is good. Just keep chugging along on this journey. It is going to take a little longer than I thought it would to get the next 20 pounds off, which is a bummer, but I hope then that it will be a lifestyle change for me, and not just a weight loss solution. It will hopefully form new good habits and I will be able to keep the weight off. Cause I sure don't want to have to do this again, it ain't fun people! But worth it!
