Spoke to my family in Germany today.
I see them two or three times a year.
That just isn't enough for me.

My Granddaughters are growing up just too fast.
The older one started first grade this month and loves it!

Her little sister (almost two) really misses her big sister.
They are very close and spend lots of quality time together.

It is a big adjustment for them both.
In fact, it is for me too!
They will be here in October for a visit.
I began getting excited about their visit last month.

If everything goes as planned I will be going over there sometime this summer.
My family means everything to me.
Isn't that the way it is supposed to be?

Have a busy day planned for Sunday.
Monday I will get in a little more walking.
My foot is feeling much better and I think it is time to move more.

Weight has been up and down.
At the end of the month I weigh just about the same.
Am almost at my goal weight.
It is more difficult to lose those stubborn last pounds.
I am so very close to what I weighed before having children.
It really is a great feeling!
It has been a long journey and well worth it.
Have lost over 85 pounds so far.

Hope everyone has a great evening and a happy Sunday!

Ta Ta for now!

    A visit from family is something to look forward to for sure!

    You've lost an amazing amount of weight and no, the last few are never easy but just keep up your great attitude and hard work and it will pay off.

    Enjoy your day!

    Yes, family is everything. My grandson just called (mom helped) and we talked for a few minutes before he was off to bed. What a great way to end the day. Congrats on your journey and keep up the great work!
