I know, I know, I know, two posts in one week is freaking amazing coming from me. But I am so excited. In the last 2 years I have gained some weight. I decided last August that I was going to try my hardest to get the weight off, I just didn't feel good, I didn't like the way that I looked, blah blah blah. I started on the Atkins diet(a low carb high protein diet) in August, it's a hard diet and you have to be very disciplined. At first I wasn't so sure it was going to work and then one day I decided to weigh myself and noticed that I had lost 10lbs. It made me excited and I wanted to see if I could loose more. Between watching what I was eating and taking Kai and Sadie on walks, doing pilates I noticed that even more weight was coming off. I try and weigh myself every couple of week. So this morning I get on the scale thinking to myself this is crazy what in the freak am I doing, but I endured it and to my surprise to date I have lost 25lbs. (that equals 4 pant sizes and 1 shirt size) I am at the weight that I want I just need to maintain it. I am excited that I can wear a 2 piece swimsuit and not feel embarrased about all of the extra weight I am carrying. If you ask some people who know me they will tell you that I don't eat, however if you ask Brett he will tell you that I am always munching on foods. Like tonight I am taking my Mom and Ann out to get Cold Stone Ice Cream :) I can't wait.

So our friend Jason Morrison is a amazing photographer. He went with Brett on Sunday to go fishing up at lake canyon, which it was freezing cold -6 degrees, way to cold for me. He got some amazing shots of Brett.
As for a update on my feet, my right foot is completely healed :) not such good news for my left. I went to the doctor on Monday and he told me that the dead skin isn't coming out on it's own and he wants me to keep it really moist until Thursday and then I get to go back. Needless to say I am NOT happy about the fact that I GET to go back and see him. I have a new nickname for my niece Ashley it's Lou who, and for Porter it's Port.

So the last couple of weeks for me haven't been good. I have been living on VERY little sleep due to nightmares. I had to go back to the foot doctor because my one toe just wasn't getting better and what does he do? He has to numb it and pull out all this dead skin. I am hoping it's getting better, but know the kind of luck I have had lately it's not. The next night Brett was suppose to go to school but it got canceled due to a gas leak, we were both excited that he didn't have to go. So I go home and start making dinner. I was cutting up some lettuce for a salad and I cut a BIG chuck out of my finger. I stuck my bleeding finger in my mouth and ran out of the kitchen into the living room, by that time Brett came in to see what had happened. Call me a whimp but I was bawling it hurt so bad. We put a bandage and lots of gauze and pressure on it. It's slowly getting better, not as fast as I would like but that is life right? Needless to say Brett banned me from using knives. He is good to come and help me cut things up for dinner. What really sucks is it's on my index finger and I am finding I use that for EVERYTHING. Kaiser thinks I have a toy or something on my finger he keeps trying to bite it. I NEED a vacation. Luckily for me I am going to California for 12 days with some of my family. I can't wait, I even have a countdown going (that is for both you and me bug) I have also given my nieces and nephews nicknames. Sarah is my "BUG", Charlie is my "Monkey" Cooper is my "Coop" and I am still thinking of one for Ashley, and it's going to be GREAT! just like she is :)
