(and I can't thank them enough for the balloon to cry over!)
After a brief hiatus to spend time with my parents, give thanks, and become a mom of FIVE (!), I am back with enthusiasm. I gained 10 pounds in the 5 or 6 weeks my parents were here. Oopsie. So now my head is OUT of the sand and I am back on track.
On to the news!
I often wonder how I can apply more discipline not only to exercising, but to all my weight loss efforts.

My tip of the week is for those of you who enjoy the Weight Watchers program. I went to the intro meeting for the new Points Plus system and it looks great. The website has a better explanation than I can provide; suffice it to say I am enthused.
That's it for this week. Look for more frequent posts now that life has returned to normal -- whatever that is!
