Weigh in Wed... and a little something....

Good morning all you blog readers!!! Hope this fine Wed. morning finds you all good and well!!! I have tons to do today - so let's move it along!

First order of business.... Weigh in Wednesday.... dum du dum.... I tell you last Wednesday seems to have been years ago - time is going really slow (as it always does as we get ready for a deployment)..... but today was the day.... weigh in day!

So.... I am fastly approaching the one month mark (I actually have an "official" weigh in with my Dr. on Friday)... so today I was a little apprehensive to get on the scales. I mean last week wasn't such a good week you know..... So here it is - today's official weigh in was 201 lbs!!!

That means I lost 2 lbs this week! Which brings my total weight lose to 9.5 lbs and that leaves me with 53 lbs still to go!!!

Not bad.... not as much as I would like... but as I have said this whole entire time - this is a life style change. It isn't a quick fix!!! Now the real test is going to be Friday when we see what the Dr's office scale says!!! (I'll keep you posted!!) I pray that next week I am below that NASTY number!!! LOL

Now on to the next item of business -

One of the things I really haven't had time to do in the past several months is give away "freebies" here on my blog! I use to be really really good at this - and I have to tell you it is something that I actually miss doing! So I am planning on bring back what use to be "Freebie Fridays!" BUT.... now here's the catch (you know that there is always a catch right!!! Bahahaha) I don't think I am going to limit it to a certain day! No rules.... just fun! That is going to be the motto!!

Thus here is the plan... the plan is every week I will post one free cutter file on my blog! Can't tell you what day it will be as I am just going to go with the flow! (Now that means you will have to check back more often - but hey - it is what it is!! LOL)

I actually had a free file on Monday as it was "Customer Appreciation Day" at Paperthreads.... but I am going to do it again this week - and guess what - TODAY IS THE DAY!!!

So today's free "TERMS RESTRICTED FILE" is one of my new files that isn't even up in the store yet -

Thanks for the cute file. We are campers, but my MIL is not. We make her go on one trip every year, so I will have to use this with a picture of her.

Good luck on the weight loss. My DH and I are trying to lose some weight too.

Thanks again for the great file.

Thanks, Lori. The file is very cute. I used to love camping with my family. Will have to dig out some old photos and try to use this on a layout.
