Life has been busy like usual but I just needed to pop in for a quick second and say I am so freaking excited. I actually fit on every ride I attempted to ride at Six Flags Yesterday. It has been years since I even tried to ride one. The kids were so excited. It made my day. I even bought us all passes to keep going back thru the summer.

I hope things slow down soon but I honestly don't see much hope.

I took in two girls age 8 and 10 this past week who was about to be put in dfs custody. I couldn't let it happen so I now how 8 kids at home counting my neice who is visiting for a few weeks. Yes call me crazy but I just can't see a child suffer.

TOM is also roaring is ugly mud so I haven't been on the scale in a few days. I don't think I have gained any but I doubt I have lost anything either.

Woot!!! That is so cool Reva on the six flags rides!!!

Heh, I have done something similar, getting on spinning rides, even though they were making me kinda ill because I was thrilled to be able to fit in anything! So cool!

You are a kind heart, taking in more children! Oh my gosh...

KT How are you doing?

Edens where are you girlie? Its been ages since we saw you pretty face around.

Amber sometimes I think I am to kind to others. That is why I am so stressed all the time I think. LOL!!!!!!!!! I love kids though and wouldn't have it any other way. It just crushes my heart to see kids neglected or mistreated.

Martini how are you doing?

Laura I have been missing you lady!! How are you?

Sara where are you young lady?

Casey how are you doing?

We are suppose to go to a big bbq this weekend but I am alittle reluctant to take all of these kids. We are expecting two more for a week tomorrow. I am thinking of just doing a big cookout here with the fire works.

Any big plans for the 4th?

I am hoping to see the scale move again soon. I am super excited though with the results this month even though I have been lazy and been to the gym only a handful of times this month. I am down 14 pounds for the month and can not complain one bit.

I have a sun dress on today and my nephew came around the corner in the kitchen and said OMG auntie you are looking so skinny in that dress. I just had to hug him. It sure made my day even though I am down in the dumps today.

Yeah Reva, you added your weight loss right this month, I didnt have to slap you upside the head, LOL That is a super loss,and without lots of exercise!!!! You are doing it, whenever a kid says something about how we look that dress or outfit goes to the forefront, Bobby said something to me today so I will be wearing this dress alot, kids never lie, so if he thought you looked skinny, you did!!! Move that to the front of the pack, LOL

I agree! Kids never lie when it comes to how we look. I will be wearing this dress more often for sure! I never wear dresses so this was a rare occasion!

I saw a new low on the scale this morning and I am stoked about it.



So, I am now down 130 pounds in 9 1/2 months. What a way to start a new month. I haven't been setting goals for myself but I would love to see the 30's by August 1st. I do believe it is very doable for me to drop 7 pounds within a month as long as I can avoid the salty stuff.

I am thinking of going to get another hair cut today. My hair grows super fast when I wear it short. I also need to take a new progress photo and measure. It has been quite some time since I have done either. I have a picture from Six Flags of just me but I look a hot mess.

I always look forward to your pics Amber. You are such an inspiration to me and many others here at LCF. I am counting on your prediction for the month. You are always on the head with your predictions.

I indulged in a few higher carb bbq hot dogs the other night at a friends bbq so I decided to stay off of the scale a few days. I haven't had a bbq hot dog (sans the bun)in ages and to tell you the truth it wasn't even all that great.

Today, I am just grilling some chicken and making a big salad. The grocery bill will all these kids here is literally killing us. I honestly can't wait till the day they all go back to school and we find out whats going to happen to the two extra girls we have. I am starting to feel like I am running raged.

Martini I am here cheering you on. You will be in twoterville any day now.

Sara I posted in your journal. I have been missing ya sister.

Amber I am going broke faster than anyone can imagine but like I keep telling myself, it is in the best interest of the kids if I can keep them out of harms way.

The scale is up a few this morning. I know its all sodium from this weekend so no worries this morning in that department. I have enough stress in my life right now to get myself any more worked up than I have to.

Lol Amber I don't think I could be a teacher. I would be in jail for choking someone when they crossed my path on a bad day....LOL. I think I need a cold one to get me thru this.

Martini I agree. It should be no problem with you surviving the cookouts the way you did.

I enjoyed a nice day out Yesterday with a friend with no kids. We had lunch in St. Louis at Red Robin and then enjoyed some time getting a pedicure and eye brows waxed. We even did a little retail therapy. I got my hair cut again today. I so much needed to do these things for my sanity. LOL

Reva, you look so young and so cute in that updated picture with the yellow shirt! Congrats on continuing with lc despite the stress you have going on. I was thinking while reading that it is a good thing that you have managed to lose so much weight in the past year. You need a lot of energy to keep up with so many kids and to keep up with the work involved around the house and in taking them places. Congrats on fitting on the rides at Six Flags. I think you are awesome. Does DFS not give you some money for taking in kids for food/clothing? Is there an Angel Food Ministry near you? Are you familiar with them? They provide food for a certain price. Google them and see if there is one near you and if it would be cost effective for you.

Blessings.
