Up and About!

I'm actually up and about like I'm supposed to be on a Sunday. I'm proud of myself for that this morning, even though I didn't sleep very well. The hubby and I haven't been to church in a while. But we plan to get back in the swing of things. And we are starting this morning. So, I have already showered and will soon be getting up to get ready.
I'm actually excited to go to church this morning because the new sanctuary opened a couple of weeks ago. No more gymnasium services for Temple West! The new sanctuary seats 3,000 people, counting the choir loft. I'm going to have to get Josh out of the door early so we can find a place to park since the have dropped down to one service now.

Anyway, I actually wanted to post about something that came to mind this morning. I think I know one of the reasons I ended up as fat as I have. Well, it's an excuse, but aren't they all? When I was in high school I tried to lose weight several times. I would lose a few pounds, plateau, then give up. Well, I wouldn't get any comments about my weight loss until I have started gaining weight back. If I actually GAINED a few pounds, people would comment about the pounds I had lost. And this was people that saw me EVERY WEEK. Kinda strange. AND this happened whether I had just gotten off a weight loss streak or not. BUT, my aunt (probably the most guilty) actually commented on my weight loss at Thanksgiving. So maybe I will actually be getting all that support this time.

Michelle has a great idea over on her blog that I can't wait for. It will be awesome. AND, on top of that, There is going to be a team based Biggest Winner competition at Southern this Spring. I've put my name in for a team from my department. That's going to be fun. I should have lots of motivation to do well this coming year.

Well, I think that is all for this morning. Hope everyone has had a good week, and has a great week leading up to Christmas!
