Bravo Star

For those of you that are familiar with Wt. Watchers ( which I will now refer to as WW) a Bravo star is a little silver star sticker. Well anyways, you would never guess the excitement I get when I know I am going to get one. At my Ww meeting, you get one of these stickers for every 5 pounds lost. I just got my first star sticker and I was soooooo excited. I felt like one of my 3rd graders. For my first five pounds I got a bookmark. That didn't really matter to me but to get the silver star... now that I LIKE. I am feeling better and have now focused my energy to a new source. Shifting from baby to losing. Ken and I are doing good we are addicted to this soup I like to make called 7 CAN SOUP. It is easy and only 4 points for one cup. On WW every thing has a point value and you have to stay within your point range. It really works. Some foods have 0 points...Unfortunately for me they are the NASTY VEGGIES....but hey I like lettuce and tomatoes which are 0 points. Dad has also been making some soups that are WW friendly. His doctor told him he has to lose some wt. so he got on the WW Wagon. He is to machismo to go to a meeting but he is making better choices about what he eats. The last soup he made was 1 point for one cup. WOW. ANYWAYS nothing too exciting going on here besides TODAY IS MY DAD's BIRTHDAY!!! We have a hockey game is mullet night. and the first 1500 get mullet wigs. Will have pictures. Anyways since dad is a regular at the hockey games mom told one of the head ladies it was his birthday and they have prepared him some kind of memorabilia gifts. Will post pics later.

Today I am thankful for..... my dad. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD....
love your daddy's girl.
A saying comes to mind when I think about the important men in my goes like this..

Day one after Wt. Watchers meeting. I like my new group. I feel like it is an AA meeting for food addicts. TECHNICALLY it is.

This is my first week after Wt. Watchers. I had lost 6 pounds in my first week. Mostly that is water weight. I don't have a Week three picture because ...frankly I forgot to have Ken take one. Sorry. I think I lost like 1.8 or something like that.

This Thursday, after 3 weeks on Wt. Watchers, down 3 more pounds for a total of 11 pounds. Way to go me!!! My eyes are puffy because I just finished watcing a very sad episode of ER and I cried like a baby.

Poor mom.. she had to take the whole clan to the Saints game without her LOYAL companion...Dad. He had injured his back and he was unable to go. I was his reluctant replacement. After, making our way through want-to-be Saints fans in the " TAIL GATING" party we eventually made our way into the ALAMO Dome. I was excited to be there even though I didn't really act like it. We were on the 3rd level ...which means climbing stair after stair after stair after stair after stair..ect....ect...ect..... Anyways...thank goodness I went to the ladies room before I made it to my final destination ... the worse seat in the house. You can look at the pictures I have posted to see what I am talking about. After was all said and done...we had a good time..even though the game ended with the Saints was controversial.

Enjoy the pictures!!!

Today or that day I was thankful for wearing good shoes.

This is the family at the Saints Football game. We literally are in the LAST row in the whole building we almost have the worst seats in the house... but... that belongs to the people next to Lyssa (Josh's girlfriend). They are in the farthest corner.

Even though our seats SUCKED we did have a good time. I am taking the picture. It is hard to smile and take a good picture. Notice we are all in BLACK. Maybe we knew the outcome was going to be grim.

I AM sitting down... you can see why I lost 5 pounds just climbing the stairs. THIS IS THE VIEW FROM MY SEAT. I was in a corner and if I looked straight down this was my view. Just to make sure you understand I am sitting in my seat taking this picture.

This is my view from my seat. Notice I can't see the other goal post because of the VERY LARGE screen. This picture was taken before the game.

For those of you who don't know TODAY is the first game of the year for our San Antonio Rampage. I am so excited!!! I LOVE HOCKEY!!! Dad got Ken and my seats moved to right behind the penalty box for the opponent. BRING IT ON!!!! I can't wait. This year we have a whole new team which SUCKS because through our friend Serge Payer (sir-gay pi-ay or pie-ee) we got to know a lot of players. Our old affiliate was the Florida Panthers and apparently the panthers and the SA Spurs association couldn't get along so adios Florida Panthers and HELLO Phoenix Coyotes. We have a new group of guys to meet and get to know...maybe. Ken met Serge through his old job at the Bandit Golf Course and that is how they became friends. We don't really know anyone form this team except Brent Cullaton but it looks like he might stay on our farm team of Laredo. If you are confused .... Coyotes are the pros NHL---> we the Rampage are their farm team our guys can be called up to play with them or be sent down to ------> Laredo Bucks they are the farm team for us. Hope that helps a little.

Anyways the cool pictures were taken at the SBC center, where the Rampage play, for our season ticket holder party. Wayne Gretsky is the owner and coach of the Coyotes and he came to the party. As you can see Ken was VERy lucky to get a picture with him..... VERY LUCKY!! I honestly didn't see anyone else get a one on one picture with him. WAY TO GO KEN!!!! I on the other hand got my picture taken with a local sports caster named Don Harris or as I call him Donna Harris. This guy thinks he is the best sports caster EVER....WHAT EVER!! I just took my picture with him as a joke. He never had anything to say about our hockey team in the past 2 years and now that "the Great One" Gretsky is here he is on him like a bee to honey. He was even asked one time why he doesn't report on hockey and he said " I don't know it and I don't plan on learning it"...Our town is Spurs Spurs Spurs.....not enough room for something else unless Gretsky is here. All of the local news crews were there and they never say a word about the Rampage ever. I hope they stay around a while and see how fun and exciting the game can be. ANYWAYS thought I might write a little something because I have been gone for a while.

I am doing fine... I started Wt, Watchers Thursday night. I will update the blog on my progress with pictures and what nots. I will also update the blog on good pics I can get from our great seats....THANKS DAD!!!

Today I am Thankful for..... HOCKEY
sounds a little trivial but it is my release. I look forward to it and Ken and I both enjoy it soooo much. My dad got me hooked...get it hooked...ha ha on it when I was little. We loved to watch the Penguins and Mario. THanks DAD!!!
