One stone

In the UK we weigh ourselves in stones (14 pounds). I have lost my first stone. Oh it feels good. I'm amazed that I've been able to do it. Every night this week I've been a mess. 16 hour days and too much pressure and kids and ahhhh. Boom. Splat.

Ah whatever, I've an easier week coming up.

Little man is trying to stand up and walk but it may take some time. He just seems to be a bit floppy. Little babe is blossoming into a toddler full speed, she's freakin' fearless. I may be biased but damn they are a whole lotta lovely kids. Mimi and I played ball yesterday - actual interaction.

It's all getting a bit scary - we have kids. You know, that need to learn stuff and do stuff and grow up. How is everyone else so calm about all this????


  1. Congratulations on the weight loss. I've been on my journey for over a year...40 down, 20 more to go. You are doing great.

    With kids, you figure things out as you go :)

  2. Wow! What a huge accomplishment! Congratulations! Keep it going!

    Oh, and I clearly don't have things figured out with my twins. Check out my last post.

  3. Calm? Who says we're calm? It's an awesome responsibility, isn't it? Are we teaching them enough? And enough of the right things? It's always on my mind. All we can do is our best, right? Speaking of awesome, though, congrats on the one stone (14 pounds?! Wow!).
