Toddler Talk + More WW Success

Two funny things Emily did today...
While I was nursing Ty this morning, Emily was keeping herself entertained by "playing" Cinderella. She carried a shoe on a pillow and wanted to see if it would fit me. She tried to beat it onto my foot just like the movie. Where does she come up with this stuff?

Later, about an hour after I put her down for a nap, I hear "I need to go POTTY!!!" coming from her room. Hallelujah! Even though she's been pt for a while, I've been working with her all summer on telling me she needs to go once she's gone to bed. Anyway, after a "strenuous" few minutes on the toilet, she informed me "Mommy, it's time for my bowel movement to go home now." Then she stood up and flushed and said "bye-bye." How smart is that girl!

Last but definitely not least, I lost almost 2 lbs last week, so my total weight loss is 11.4 lbs. WOO-HOO!!! I am going to have to work really hard next week with teacher inservice week with all of the potlucks and snacks that will be provided. I told Dee I was going to bring healthy snacks and food to the potlucks, and when I want one of the unhealthy snacks, I am going to look at the people in line for food and tell myself I don't want to look like them; I want to be thin. I hope that doesn't sound mean because it's not like I'm perfect. I am just trying to give myself a little extra motivation!

Too cute. She's going to be an actress that one! She loves to role play far more than mine ever did. Mine drew and said profound things, but not really much 'role play'. Love the stories. Keep them coming!

BTW...I finally lost weight, I didn't go to the gym at all this week (just as an experiment) and I limited my calories and fat, and lost about 3-4 lbs. So this week, I'm going to reintroduce the gym, and keep my calories low and see what happens. I thought I was eating good (small portions and such) but I guess I was getting more calories than I thought! Way to go for your loss! That's great!
