10 pounds down...

Whew! I haven't been writing because I have been waiting for the end of my weight loss story. But heck, I'll do a short post!

So, about 4.5 weeks ago, I joined a weight loss challenge here at work. You pay $20 and then weigh out 6 weeks later. Winner is the highest percentage of body weight gone!
I have been completely carb free (no cheese, bread, fruit, sugar, artificial sweetener, potatoes etc) for 2 weeks now and was exercising before that. As of yesterday, I have lost a total of 10 pounds!!!!
That is awesome and the hardest darn thing I have ever done. My goal for the 6 weeks was 15 pounds and weigh out is June 25th. I have a little less than 2 weeks to lose 5 more and I am ready to do it!!!
Prize is almost $600!!! As of today, I still have 18 pounds left to get to my college, pre-body baby.... I would love to get to that but if I could lose 10 more, I'd be thrilled! Wish me luck!

As far as pre-school goes... Addison is doing fabulously! She loves it and was even upset she couldn't go this past weekend! I am so happy for her. She is such a social creature and is just doing fantastic.

Kirstynn is such a laid back easy going toddler. She plays so well by herself and just is a joy to be around. That being said, it kind of puts her at a disadvantage. She is so quiet and laid back and Addison is so social and gregarious that Kiki sometimes gets left in the dust... I picked her up by herself on my day off on Friday to just spend with her. Funny how much 2nd children really do have to share the time.
I worry because she still isn't talking a whole lot and I am pretty sure that is our fault because we are constantly talking to Addison cause she talks SO much!!! My new project is on the ride home every night I am trying to teach her new words... We'll see how it goes!
