A is for....

And this is so appropriate because, as you know, I started a diet a week ago. Of course I hate to go on and on about it, but in the first week, I lost a whopping 4.4 lbs. Yeah me! I turned my statistics in to
Big Hair Envy who happens to be hosting the South Beach Blogger Butt Smackdown!! Of course I am doing the Atkins diet because I love being different am familiar with it, and find it better geared to my losing enough weight to equal a baby whale.

So I will Do my Aerobics to firm up as I slim down. The reason this is so on target is because Suz at Day By Day....My Life As A Busy Bee , reminded me that this is A to Z Monday. I always miss the start of these theme posts so I feel lucky this time.

Care to join me?

Go Grandma J! Way to go! Keep on aerobicking! I biked and ran today...gotta keep it off here :)

I told my co-workers of your movie reviews...(they don't read blogs,) and they thought it was crazy that I don't "know" you! What do they know anyways!

Happy "A" Monday!

GREAT job, 4.4 pounds is incredible for the first week. And good for you for exercising too.

My "A" word is AGONIZINGly. As in, "my computer happens to work--slightly--this morning but is agaonizingly slow, and I might have to ACQUIRE a new one which is frightening to me because I have no technical expertise and am loathe to learn something new.

Regarding that question about the picture - the only thing I know is that when I am uploading from blogger, I always check the largest size picture - there are 3 choices I think and I just pick the big one. I don't know how to make it enlarge upon clicking...that would require a shred of technical knowledge.

4.4 pounds? OH MY GOSH! That is SO fantabulous! I am very, very, VERY proud of you. How come I don't know what a-z Mondays are? Do you wonder if I live on a different planet? Me too!

I am glad you love Kaishon's mischevious happy face. I love that little kid so much I just can't stand it. OH MY GOODNESS I love him!

I am really proud of you. I just sent a text message to Gary about your success. He thinks you are a part of our family because I talk about you almost every night at supper : ). Quince just asked me about you too. We all love you here.
