Week 40 - We're still here!

Well, our weigh-in yesterday morning showed us BOTH just exactly the same weight! No gains or losses last week. Okay, I can handle that. I am SO glad there wasn't a gain because during the week there was a day when I was over 170 on the scale... which freaked me out. I appreciated all the supportive comments from my last post. It's nice to hear from those of you who've gone through the scale wars as well! You guys are fabulously supportive!

We survived a busy weekend as well. Saturday evening, we did a church youth "Harvest Hoedown" dance and it was AWESOME! We had over 200 wonderful youth that responded so well. The hubs taught 2 lines dances and the crowd rocked that floor. I did all the music (that has always been my fort-ay at dances) and we had many compliments afterwards saying it was one of the best dances they've had. Three of our 4 kids were there and enjoyed it too. Good Times!!
And tonight we went to what's called "Young Women in Excellence" where our daughters were highlighted for the goals they've reached this year in their "Personal Progress" program. My younger daughter had been asked to speak as well, and she did such a great job! What's amazing is that earlier today she was also the youth speaker at church so she had double duty today. She was nervous and anxious yet she did so wonderfully. It was one of those "proud mama" days. Of course, on the way home in the van there was some bickering and whining between the kids... Oh Joy!

Last week or so ago, I made cauliflower pizza at a friends house. We made them rectanglish size. Always a yummy "Lean and Green."
Then yesterday I needed a quick lean and green and threw this combination together: 2 Morningstar pizza burger patties with squirts of mustard, sauteed zucchini & red peppers, and some tomato slices. It was so delish... that I made it again tonight. Maybe it's weird but that fits me! Well, it's late... I need to get to bed. God Bless XOX ~Margene

Margene, you have the best attitude! And congratulations on both a successful dance, but more importantly, the proud-parent moments (plural!!) ... those are the best kind of days!

I need to look up those pizza burgers. Yummy!
