We've Got Some Catching Up To Do...

There is some much that I want to share with you so hold onto your hats, because we are hitting the ground running.

Weight Watchers Update:
My weigh in day is Tuesday, like normal I left work and went to my weekly Weight Watchers meeting. When I arrived at my meeting, I weighed in and realized that this week is my 40th week at Lifetime with Weight Watchers! For the past 40 weeks, I have weighed in anywhere from 140-135!! I do not think I have ever maintain my weight this well in my whole life. I am so excited and to have had so much support throughout this process. Thank you!!

Baby Update:
My youngest sister, Vivian is still pregnant. Today, she is 41 weeks so hopefully the doctor will decide to induce her when she goes to her appointment this afternoon. As soon as I get baby pictures I will share them with you. Please pray for her and that her baby arrives safely.

My other sister, Bobbi had her first ultrasound on Tuesday (09.14.2010). She was 8 weeks and 5 days along on Tuesday. Her due date is April 21st, 2011. I cannot wait to continue to watch her and the baby grow over the next 7 months. Here is her first ultrasound picture.

Thank you for the award! :)

I have to confess, at first glance, when I got here I thought you were making an "announcement"! 2 of my friends recently announced they were pregnant by changing their status picture to an ultrasound.

I'm inspired by your Wt. Watchers success! I became a lifetime member just about the time I found out I was pregnant with my second child. I really need to go back....darn! ;-)

Jen Newsham said...

Marlene - You're welcome! I was wondering if people would get the wrong impression, but let's hope they read the blog first. :)

Thank you! I was afraid that would happen to me, but thankfully I have been able to be a Lifetime member for a little while.

Hi!! Aww that's so sweet, thanks for the award. It's my first one. I'm new at awards. lol I'm not sure what to do as far as posting it. Do I follow what you did?

mrsmarkdave said...

when I first saw the new blog post and the picture I thought for sure you were going to share that you are the one having a new baby :-)
Well, sisters having babies is exciting, too.
Congratulations on your 40th week. Tuesday is my weigh in day, too. This week I had to make an emergency trip out of town for the surgery of my niece. So I had to skip - yet again - and being away from home, I've not done well.

I can see why you have babies on the brain. They are surrounding you! It's like the 6th Sense only - "I see Pregnant people" instead!

Having a great time following your blog. Hang in there!

Losing Brownies - Thank you!! Maintenance has been more challenging then losing the weight, but I am doing it!

The Sweet Life - You're welcome! Congrats on your first award. Yes, I believe you follow what I did.

MrsMarkDave - That's what I was afraid people would think, but I think being an Aunt again is pretty exciting!

J. Darling - It is exactly like that! Every time I turn around someone else is having a baby. So glad to have you following my blog!

Stephanie - You are welcome!!

mrsmarkdave said...

You're absolutely right. Being an aunt again is super exciting. I am an aunt 11 times. And it's fabulous!

Thanks for sharing. I think it is great that you've been able to maintain your goal weight for that long. I love you approach to blogging offsite, then sharing to all of us on the WW site.

BettyBets said...

Jennifer, you have a wonderful blog! I have saved it to my favorites. It is only by the grace of God that I was able to lose over 45 pounds so far and be here today. I'm so glad that Jesus has done so much for you. Congratulations on losing so much weight and maintaining it as well. May I ask you to pray for me, and can I share your site at our WW meeting? God bless you.

Jen Newsham said...

MrsMarkDave - Wow!! Eleven times, that's so much fun!

Elizabeth - You're welcome!
