|still needs some work done|
Ben is 8 months old today! Every month since he was born, I've taken Steelers themed pictures of him. We are HUGE Pittsburgh Steelers fans and Ben (his full name is Benjamin Hines) was actually named after Preston's favorite player (Ben Roethlisberger) and my favorite player (Hines Ward). So this month's photo included Ben's Steelers sleeper and Brandon's Steelers football. Good thing he's almost a year old - I'm beginning to run out of ideas! Props aren't a problem, we have TONS of Steelers stuff, but I'm just not very good at setting up pictures, and since he's a little wiggle worm now, it's not easy to get him to sit still long enough to take a great picture. LOL

I've been really on track today! Of course, I think my medication is curbing my appetite, which is okay with me! LOL Or I've just been so busy and occupied (thanks to the energy my pills have apparently given me) that I haven't had much time to think about food. My back is still a little sore (was super stiff this morning and that really bummed me out) but hopefully the meds will start helping. I'm planning on hitting the gym tomorrow, if things aren't too busy for us after the local Easter egg hunt. I know Preston's cousin and her little boy will be in town, so tomorrow might be a family day. I might be able to slip away for a few hours to work out, but I'm just going to play it by ear.
I've been counting every calorie I stick in my mouth. I think it's boring, but I know it works and keeps myself accountable, so I'm doing it. I was down to only needing to lose 35 founds to meet my goal - but after today's weigh in, it's back to almost 40. :( It makes me sad, but I know I have what it takes and I have a lot of inspiring people to look at for guidance and help and I think as long as I keep that in mind, I can gain control again. I'm clearly NOT going to reach my goal by my first wedding anniversary next month, but I hope I'm closer than I am now! :)
