Today I've been reading people's blogs and thinking about how my life is so different from what it was a few months ago. I have started BFC'ing with my husband and blogging about it. Me! Sharing with whoever might find my little space on the interwebz about my weight loss challenges. That is so unlike the old me. :) I like the new me.

This weekend went by far too quickly. I'm back at work and looking forward to my first day at the new job on Thursday. Yeesh! That's going to be a long day (she realizes far too late!). But I'm grateful to have that second job-- I think it will help us out a lot.

I keep saying to Hubs that we are the luckiest people on the planet. Here we are in a time when lots of people are losing jobs and in industries that are notorious for layoffs right now, and we both have two jobs now! There is so much security in knowing that even if one lets you go, you have the other and will likely be able to cover expenses until something else turns up! Also, Hubs is a teacher at a community college which allows him to take classes super cheap, so if he decides to, he can start working on his Masters.

There is so much to be grateful for! I have a fantastic husband, comfortable house, a functioning car and great friends. Wow... I'd better find something wooden so I can knock on it!

Anyway, sorry for the ramblings. The diet is going well. We've cut WAY back on our ice cream intake, so that should help. Hubs is now officially at -34lbs!! I can't even believe it! He's done such a great job!

So, I'm just chugging along... Avoiding sugary things and counting the carbs.

Glad things are going well for you! My husband has lost faster than me too! It must be men's better metabolism or something. Wish I could get mine kicking up better!
