Some LO's and a cute pic

This makes 75 for me! I forget what my sis is at....76 going on 77 I think..not sure. Not sure how this became a "competition" either!! We had a little cyber crop last night and I did the LO of Mikey and Lij playing in their pools. The other, I worked on the day before. I just LOVE that pic of us I took at the park. I wish the kids had been looking up and had their eyes open, but I think that was the best they could do at the moment! Also, here's a pic I took of Miguel and Mikey on Sunday. We had gone to visit my Grandma at the nursing home and were in the truck waiting for my mom and aunt to get there (didn't know they were already there!). Mikey was sitting on Miguel's lap and I got this great pic that I can't wait to scrap. I wish Mikey didn't have all that sun on that one side of his face, but maybe I can edit that somehow. Anyway...oh, I'm "attempting" to own version of the Atkins diet...cuttting out carbs, but still eating fruits and veggies...I don't think I could NOT eat fruits and veggies, I'd die! LOL Today is my third day and it's still hard to not want to throw in the towel and eat some of those Golden Oreos with the chocolate cream in the middle that are just sitting in the kitchen taunting me!! I bought them on Sunday....the day BEFORE I decided I was going to diet! Although I did get to eat a WHOLE bunch of them that night so it wasn't a total waste. I want to diet and exercise faithfully for the next two months or so..until my birthday and see how much, if any, weight I can lose...inches are good too...something...anything....It's very frustrating...especially when we are going to go "out" somewhere and I have nothing to wear..or I "feel" like I have nothing to wear that fits me right or that I think I look "good" in. I know that Miguel loves me no matter what I look like so I think this is just more for myself. I want to look at myself in the mirror and feel good about myself. Even if I never get back down to a size I would like, to at least look in the mirror and truly feel happy with what I see...that is all I want. So any encourgement is definately welcomed :) Okay, well I have about 30 mins to kill before I go get on the treadmill. I want to get it out of the way early in case Miguel decides to come home early for lunch. Until later :)
