Losing weight

It has been quite a while since I lost posted to my blog. Not that anyone really reads it anyways, but oh well. That's another story.

Anyways, school is out, and I am babysitting again for the summer. I not only have my grandkids but another bus driver's daughters. Every little bit helps! :)

I now have a nice small garden in my back yard in a couple of raised bed kits that we bought this spring. I need to buy three more whenever I have the extra money so I can raise the bed up higher and make one bed just for squash next year because they take over! :)

I have been harvesting quite a few zucchinis and a couple of tomatoes here lately. I have already gotten all the radishes and lettuce. Carrots didn't do too well this year. Maybe next year when the bed is deeper.

I have adopted another dog this year as well. Well, technically it was two, but the first puppy, a full blooded pit bull got parvo and we had to put her down. She is buried in the back under the trees. The newest puppy is half lab and half pit bull. She is an excellent watch dog!

I have been baking zucchini bread and muffins for the past two weeks. I have been using my mom's recipe (not sure where she got it but it is the best recipe!) and I have had to modify it. You see, I joined Weight Watchers almost 16 weeks ago. I have lost 35.4 pounds as of last Thursday! I have been working on modifying several recipes that I love so that they are lower in fat and calories. I am bound and determined to get back to my normal weight! I figure I still have 98.6 pounds to go. One week, one day at time, it will come off.
