i want a perfect body, i want a perfect soul

so i guess that the last song is a wee bit difficult. most anyone who listened to alternative music during the 90's should know the song. the opening line of the song is "it must be your skin i'm sinkin in."

some good news for those who have been keeping up with my good friends' situation. the boys are home, and the adjustment period has begun. things on the home front are good too. the chicks now look like chickens. the WW thing is going very well. my starting weight on friday 4/18 was 229 lbs. i weighed myself yesterday and i weigh in at 222 lbs. a big woo hoo to me. according to the IMB i need to have a "healthy" bmi of between 20 and 25. i currently have a 36. in order to get to this "healthy" bmi i will need to weigh between 124 lbs and 155 pounds. let me take you back to high school. my senior year i was a wee bit on the skinny side. i weighed in at 135 lbs. according to bmi that is healthy for me. let me tell you what i looked like. when i stood up straight you could see all of my ribs, even the weird little one at the bottom. i had a 28 inch waist and 21 to 22 inch thighs. solid muscle, but still not proportional. i am hoping to be able to get my weight down to about 145. that will be roughly 100 lbs. lost since last february.

from time to time princess mindy does thankful list and allows questions to be asked that she answers on her blog. in her honor here we go:

i am thankful for:
friends, both being one and having them
children, both the good and the bad. the bad help me realize how much i love mine.
my husband, we have been married 9 1/2 years and he still thinks i'm sexy.
my laundry room, i have an awesome washer and dryer.
my sight and hearing, so often i forget the simple things that bring me joy.
the sound of laughter
nap time
blogs, it is really my only daily connection to the adult world.

any questions you have i will try answer in one of my next blogs. i don't when that will be because we are digging out our basement and that is quite time consuming.

edited to say wednesday song was guessed by vanilla frog. the song is glycerine.

I'm thinking of blogging publicly of my (hopeful) weightloss after this baby. I think it will hold me more accountable, but I'm too shy too admit to what I weigh right now. But I HAVE to loose this weight (or go without clothes because my wardrobe doesn't fit!)

Totally wonderful list!!

You go girl on the WW thing! I am so proud of you!

And I got the cutest zippered bag in the mail from you. Thank you so very much!!

Also, there are weight loss tickers that you can put on your blog to keep up with your weight loss if you want.

Hey, there's a friend who has just started her weight loss journey on ww after her fourth kiddo. You might find her interesting: Skinny White Chic. There's a link on my blog. She's also the author of Michawn's Meanderings, also linked on my blog. You guys are awesome. I feel overwhelmed when I try to even get my scrap book stuff out! I just wait until I have a large place to work and a lot of time altogether to get a bunch of it done in spurts;) You go, Reinababes!
