The other good news is that I have not only lost 8 pounds, but I now have a BMI of 24.3, which is in the "Healthy" range. Yippee! I am so excited because I haven't been in the Healthy range since before I got pregnant with my first son, almost 4 years ago! Here is a current photo of me and my youngest.
Second, I would like to thank At Goal Weight Watcher for my first blog award. It is called the Liebster Award.
The word Liebster means 'Beloved' in German--and a show of love and support is what this award is all about. The idea is to bring attention to new blogs with fewer than 200 followers.
The rules of winning this award are the following:
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment at their blog.
3. Post the Award on your blog.
4. Enjoy the love of some of the most supportive people on the Internet!
Here are my top 5 picks for the Liebster Award:
4. See How She Runs
5. A New Dawn For Me
Third, I would like to apologize for having an off-week with my posting. Tomorrow's review will be a little bit of a "fluff" review, too. My 10-month-old baby (the one in the picture) had minor surgery on Monday, so, needless to say, I have been a little preoccupied. He had an abscess that had to be cleaned out and drained. Normally this is an easy procedure, but for a baby, they have to go under general anesthesia because they are too wiggly. I think that was the most stressful part - waiting to see if he would wake up okay. I know the chances are slim to none that he would have a reaction to the anesthesia, but that doesn't make it any less stressful, unfortunately. The poor little guy is recovering nicely, though, and is pretty much back to his usual happy self. I am just glad everything is over, and I am thankful that it was only a minor surgery. There were plenty of parents of children with much more serious problems at the Children's Hospital we were at.
As for my eating, I did fairly well considering we were away from home for the surgery. I only went off-plan for three meals, and even then, I had salad and said no to the bread offered. I came back a pound heavier, but I am hoping by the time I weigh in on Sunday, that pound will be gone again.
