New Diet Blog and Other Updates

Based on your responses, I started a diet blog by the name of "Blog the Pounds Away" and it is password protected at this time. I will keep it that way unless the participants want me to open it up. I have sent out 8 invitations based on the comments so far. If you did not receive an invite and you have already responded please let me know in the comments. Michelle, I do not have your e-mail address, so please send it to me so that I can invite you. I am surprised but really happy that you want to join us. (Michelle is a marathon runner and triathlete, so it just goes to show you that no one is exempt from wanting to get on a healthier eating plan) If anyone else wants to join us, please leave a comment at any time with your e-mail address and I will send out an invitation to you. My mom would also love to join us so I will send her an invite. I am hoping that she becomes an active participant on the blog as well ;0) Also, as promised, I plan to update everyone regularly on my progress right here on this blog.

My dad is also pretty close to starting his own blog and I am tickled to hear that news. I will keep you updated when that happens. Today, he told me another couple of great stories that I had never heard before that blew me away. We have an inside joke in our family that Big Daddy really has no stories that we have not heard before. In fact, we hold up fingers for the amount of times that we have heard them as he begins to tell them so I am REALLY excited to hear all of these new stories ;0) You know I love you Pop!!

I have lots to discuss tomorrow about the events of today. Today we had our first conference with Ethan's preschool teacher and we had a very eye opening discussion. Also, it was our last day of swim class for the DD. I have lots of pictures and video from that.

See you back here tomorrow ;0)

Thanks for starting up the new blog. I can't wait to get started. Right now I plan on working on getting h2o into my life & drinking less soda. Glad to hear your mom is joining us. Perhaps she'll post there!

Please do let us know when your dad starts his blog. He's got a ready made fan base!

Hi; I have visited your blog from time to time and have loved watching your adoption journeys and pictures of your beautiful children. I would love to be part of your support group. I have just joined weight watchers as well, and would love to participate in a group that is on the same journey. My email address is Thanks,

ok.. I have decided I would like to become a member of the group. I think it is easier when you have the support of other people. I won't be starting Weight Watchers online until Oct 6. I am anal and I have to start on a Monday and I won't be back from my trip until Tuesday, Sept 30. Thanks Brooke Miller
