those four little words

Most of the time, when you hear a woman talk about little words and getting excited about it, its always 'I love you.' For today's blog, that's not the words I'm thrilled about. Don't get me wrong, I love, love. I just had four days filled with love. My father in law announced he was engaged, and we got to spend time getting to know his fiance. I'm so happy for them! They're going to be getting married in New York in April. This wedding is yet another incentive for losing the weight I need to lose. I can't wait to go shopping for a new dress, in a new smaller size! We spent the rest of the weekend with our spiritual family. It's always awe inspiring to experience that much love. I'd also like to add, that when people get together, we eat. Most of the time, not so healthy either. I'm sad to report to you all that this weekend, was a diet fail for me. I believe we ingested all that was put in front of us on a plate, bowl, or napkin. We ate everything under the culinary sun, from chili to chinese and from torte to truffle. The only healthy thing I had was the fat free dairy creamer for my coffee that accompanied my upside down pineapple cake.

In the midst of all the feasting, came the words that I love to hear. 'Are you losing weight,' my sister in law asked? She's been out of the country, and hasn't seen me for almost a month. I was so excited, I could have kissed her! She said that she could tell that I was losing weight. And I beamed from that the whole rest of the night. You never know what good or bad impact your words will have on people. After hearing this, I felt even more motivated than ever! Sure, I went ahead and ate what I wanted to. But you better believe that this week, I'm going to continue what I was doing the week before. Eating healthy. Cooking lighter. Exercising harder. Much love to all!
