Friday Weigh In and BYOC

Starting weight 372 lbs. on 12/5/11 I'm in week 19
last weeks weight 313.6
This weeks weight 313.2
Loss of .4 lbs for the week Total loss of 58.8

Yup, only .4 lb loss. Its in the right direction but not that thrilled. I'm not upset though, I saw lower 2 days ago and then lovely Aunt Flo showed up so I'm blaming that. The only thing I'm struggling with is that last week when I saw the PA and the nutritionist they said I needed to increase my calories. I'm having a hard time doing that without eating junk! I can eat like normal, enter it all in MFP and then at the end of the day, go "Crap! I need another 150 calories, lets eat ice cream!" I don't think that's correct, right? ;-)

I know I've been a BAD blogger! Sorry Miss Lorie! But I will say that I sit down and try to read up on what I've missed! My kids have been keeping me running! Baseball started this week and soccer and of course taekwondo! Thank God it rained on Monday or I would of been a world of hurt that night. I had soccer at 5:45, taekwondo at 6, a fundraiser for church we were suppose to work at from 5-8 and an auxiliary meeting at 7. Soccer was cancelled, so we had more time for the church stuff!  Next week things are more organized! Enough of that, onto BYOC!

1. Do you have any siblings? What is your relationship with them? Good, bad, ugly?

I have 2 brothers and a sister. I am the oldest. My birth father died when I was 10 months old in a car accident so my siblings are halfsies with me, but it doesn't matter in the slightest except they all had blond hair when they were younger (my sis still does) and they have blue eyes. They are all naturally thin too! (ugg) I use to be much closer to my oldest brother until he married my SIL, no offense to anyone but we live in the Midwest and she is from California. We call that place the cereal bowl of America........its full of nuts, fruits and flakes! Not everyone, but my SIL sure is! But oh well, he choose her, he has to live with her. She's the mother of my wonderful niece so I won't say to much about her. My next brother is getting married next year and is expecting a baby this Sept. (yes, backwards) He had Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma about 4 years ago and we weren't sure he was ever going to have kids, so we are happy. My sis is a lawyer on the East coast and we talk a couple of times a week, even though she is 10 years younger. We have become much closer since she had my nephew 4 years ago.
2. Let’s talk pizza. Do you prefer homemade or restaurant? What toppings are your fave?

Homemade pizza is OK, but I'm always trumped by what can go on it. So I like restaurant pizza. I usually order at least a half that is to my own liking. Chicken, bacon ranch. Maybe BBQ chicken. Or maybe just plain old Canadian bacon with lots of cheese.

3. When is the last time you cried – in sadness and in joy?
Cried, that's a hard one. I'm not much of a crier but when I do, I do it up good! I get teary eyed at commercials and feel good things but not really cry. I cried when we adopted all 3 of my kids. I'll tell you more about that in another post! I really cried when I lost my grandfather (my birth dads father) about 8 years ago. He was SUCH an important man in my life! But usually when things are going to hell I become calm because everyone else is crazy. When my brother was diagnose with cancer, my mom FREAKED. I kept calm and talked to the doctors. When my dad (adoptive) was diagnosed with colon cancer 4 years ago, once again mom was a basket case. She thought she was going to bury another husband, I stayed calm and handled crap. The last time I really lost it was when we thought our daughters birth mom was going to back out and take her back when Brooklyn was about a month old (and colicky as HELL) I flipped out and cried, screamed generally lost it, with the lawyer listening from one phone as I talked to this birth mother on a cell I flipped the bitch switch and my husband, and parents and in-laws watching wide-eyed I really lost it. Well, we have our daughter.  Enough said.
4. Do you own a gun – one that is specifically yours? Do you know how to use it?
Not any more. See above answer. That is one reason why. I use to have a really cute pearl handled revolver but for some reason my ex-husband took it with him when he left to go live with his girlfriend (probably One good choice he made in his F'n life) because for the same reason I listed above. When I finally flip, I flip. I really wouldn't ever hurt anyone, except a skunk in my yard, or a raccoon getting into my garbage, or in my garage eating the cats food. This is South Dakota. I have hunted, shot guns, we own one. But for protection only (wildlife mostly). It is locked up and the ammo is separate so that the kids can NOT get near it. I would DIE if something happened to one of them! They have been told to respect the gun. They get corrected quickly if I hear anything even remotely like, "I'm going to shoot you" or  even the finger thing at each other like boys do.
5. Repeat question. Summarize your week!
Its been BUSY! I'm planning Daniels 7th birthday for next month. Trying to figure out summer schedules. Zoo camp, Y camp for the two boys, swimming lessons, camping, baby showers for my brothers fiance, and my cousin. I'm on the church board of education so planning Vacation Bible school. I would like to get to Texas with a stop in OK to visit my daughters birth mother (for about 2 hours only) but that way she won't come up here! I am SO bad! Have a great weekend everyone!
