I was hoping to be better about posting more often house flooded from the rain (3 inches inside 4 rooms), my daughter broke her arm, and my son had to have a root canal. A few thousand dollars later and I finally have time to blog! On a better note, the house looks better and the insurance adjuster is coming, my daughter is doing better, and my son realizes the importance of brushing his teeth when I tell him.

As far as the WOE (way of eating), I finished my 4th week. I am down 17 pounds and have lost 24.5 inches. I had read somewhere that people gained in the 3rd week but mine was in the 4th week. I gained 4 pounds but in the end lost 5 so I am still one ahead for the week. The next two weeks are the accelerated fat loss weeks so I am remaining hopeful that I can reach the -26 pounds by the end of the 8 weeks.

My mom bought the book yesterday and a few gals at work are joining also. Next Monday we end our diet competition at work. We are on teams of two and have weighed every other week. If your team was not the biggest loser, you each had to put in $2. Monday we will split the cash between the team with the biggest loss overall. Then we are starting up again.

Today will be a struggle for me. It is carb down (remember I started on Thursday). Every Thursday a lady from a Mexican Bakery comes by with a van full of pastries, tortillas, and tamales. They are so good and so inexpensive. It is hard to resist. I don't have another carb-up day until Saturday and not sure I could trust myself to save the goods until then. Remember the french fry commercial where the guy put them in the trunk to make it home...but stopped to eat them on the side of the road. I am afraid the kids would say, "Mom, you have some pink crumbs hanging on you lips." I think I better just hide in my office when she comes. Maybe I will have some yummy cottage cheese.

Holy cow...I would definitly say it's pouring in your neck of the woods. You sound great over the internet as you are holding up under all those circumstances. I'm on day 3 of the program ever. (This is Sandy by the way)

Great job on the loss, inches and pounds. Now, go eat some broccoli!

Hope the kids are doing better. And hopefully you were able to stay away from the tamales and pink bread thingy.
