Feeling The Love!

Last night while at a church activity, my friends Katie and Sue presented me a wonderful gift. Katie is the one that started the "get Kim an x-box and kinect" fundraiser, and it just so happens that she raised enough to get me that x-box and kinect! So, her and Sue along with the help of Katie's mom Leora put together a box of goodies for me! I was quite surprised by it!

This is the box itself! Sue said that I'll look glamorous like that when I've completed this Journey.

And this is what is inside of the box!

Lots of yummy 100 calorie packs, one of the kinds they put in are chocolate covered pretzels! All I can say is, YUM! Three packs of Extra strawberry shortcake gum, some whole almonds, a bag of popcorn and some brown paper bags to make popcorn in the microwave with! Which I never knew you could do! 1/4 c popcorn in a bag that is folded over a few times and 2 minutes on high yields a very filling 2 pt snack! They also included a pack of weight watchers 1 pt chocolate cakes, which are so yummy! A Chicken Soup for the Soul book, some yummy sugar free candies and last but not least, the money that Katie raised to get me the x-box and kinect! How sweet is that?! Thank you again Katie for doing this for me, I really appreciate it so much!

I briefly mentioned on here that my father-in-law passed away on Sunday. Things have been pretty hard these past few days, as can be expected. I've been in a bit of a funk, but I think I'm pulling out of it now. I lost track of myself for a few days and wasn't really caring all too much about what I was eating. But, last night at the church activity I got re-inspired to get back into gear with my eating and everything. I'm so thankful for the support of my friends and the women at church. Telling everyone what I'm doing has helped me so much! It keeps me on track and inspires me to keep going. At the same time, people seeing me doing this is inspiring them to get healthier too. That's a great feeling, to be an inspiration to other people! So, I'm feeling the love, and I really appreciate it.

I'll probably be weighing in tomorrow instead of Saturday, since we'll be busy with the funeral. I'll be completely happy to maintain my weight loss this week. It's been a hectic emotional week and I think that would be amazing if I pull maintaining off this week.
