Weekly Weight Watcher Update

I did another weigh in Friday.

I think this makes my 5th weigh in {that is counting the very first one}.

I was down another 2.8 pounds.

Keep in mind that last week I was up  1.2 pounds from the medical procedures that occured right before weigh-in. So, I lost that weight {as I knew I would} and then even more.

Total I have lost 8.2 pounds since re-joining Weight Watchers four weeks ago.

What has helped this week? I have been focusing on eating fresh fruit as a dessert and not sweets. I also cleaned out my cupboards, Power Spaces, and I have been walking. I know that I am a nervous eater. I have to pack snacks to go to the baseball games. Nowadays those snacks are vegetables.

Before you all ask, yes that is a bruise on my arm. It is left over from my cancer check up.

Oh and speaking of cancer check up: I did that Friday too. Once again the test results all came back looking good.  The only bad news I got during my check up is that my doctor is leaving the practice and I have to find a new doctor. EEK!


  1. Oh Pamela you look gorgeous, you are inspiring! That's a wicked bruise but I'm so happy for you that the test results came back good. I know that feeling of having to wait is always horrid hey?

  2. Okay, so the two drunk men in the elevator at work were speaking truth whether you wanted to hear it or not. Walk that runway lady. You are looking too good. Keep up the hard work, I'm super proud of you.

  3. Great news from C. world!! Here's to only visiting that place on these rare occasions & then skipping happily back to your OWN! (Well worth that bruise to get a win.) -deb t.

  4. Great news, Pam. And you look fabulous-jt

  5. YAY FOR GOOD TEST RESULTS!!!! That's fabulous... and it must feel so good! Congrats on your weight loss! You really do look great. I totally noticed this weekend that you had a multitude of healthy snacks in little baggies and I was like "oh man, I so need to do that"! Thanks for inspiring me (this weekend's state tournament is gonna be a hot one)!

My Weekend Project: A PVC Camping Lamp Post and Flag Holder

I have seen a few of these around campsites and I knew I would like to have one. The only problem that I had is The Husband.

He already thinks we drag too much stuff with us when we go camping and if I had told him my desire to have a PVC Camping Light Pole he would have shut it down quickly!

So, that leaves a girl with only one choice: Figure out how to do it by herself.

I did some internet searching and found a few road maps on RV forums. They seemed easy enough!

I visited the local hardware store for the supplies:

An exterior post lantern light2 inch PVC pipe (I used 5 feet but had to purchase a 10 foot piece)A 3 inch toilet flangeA 3 inch to 2 inch ReducerPVC GlueA 12 foot electric cord kit2 - 3/4 inch PVC Caps I also used a few supplies we already had on hand:

White Spray Paint

3 1/2 foot - 3/4 inch PVC PipeDrill Bits (1 inch and 1/2 inch)Tent Stakes

The first step was preparing the lantern light. I could only find black in the store and I knew I wanted all white. I covered the gla…

Camping Activity: Wood Chip Necklaces

My worry in taking a wide range of kids camping is that the younger kids would be happy just playing together but the older ones, the one's in that awkward pre-teen/teen age, would think everything was so uncool they would just sit around and mope. So I designed a few activities that would hopefully get them up, participating, and moving.

 I came home from work a few weeks before the Family Camp-out and found my neighbors had trimmed their tree limbs and piled the mess in my yard. I refrained from getting angry. Over a nice dinner, I asked The Husband to help me with a little project.

He looked at me in disgust. I was pulling him away from ESPN to help with an unnecessary camping craft.

 I admit I did some begging. In the end, The Husband borrowed his father's chainsaw and decided to help me cut medallions out of a limb.  His mood started changing, quickly.{I then begged him to let me try my hand at the chainsaw, but he would not let budge on that one. I had to settle for hol…

Hand Made Gifts: Tutu Ornaments

My  Short Chic is turning into a little dancer. To thank the dance teachers for their help, we decided to make them a little gift for Christmas. A tutu ornament.

Supplies needed:

Tulle. I selected black, white and hot pink. The pink and white both have glitter {I have been walking around for the past four days with glitter all over me!}. Glass Ornaments that coordinate with your tulle. Some kind of string {I used stretch magic}. And some super glue.

Step 1: Cut  the tulle. 

I learned, from trial and error, that my cell phone was roughly the right size. So, I used it as a template for cutting the tulle.  
Step 2: Tie the tulle to the string.

Using a simple slip knot, tie the tulle onto the string {or Stretch Magic}. I think I used about 40 loops per ornament.
Step 3:  Adhere it to the Ornament.
I do not have a photo of this step. But simply, you take some super glue and glue the tutu ring to the ornament. 
FINISHED!  Once the glue is dried, you are finished. {Well except the wrapping!} I …
