Family weekend

We went to Florida last weekend and had a grand time seeing family and friends.
We got to meet our new baby great nephew Elijah who was just a little doll! Our great niece Lilly has gotten to be such a lovely young lady and her mom Chrissy ( my niece) and her husband look like they are a very happy and blessed family!
And of course we got to hug and kiss and play with our grandson Kavi who brings us so much joy with his loving and happy ways
Our daughter Christina looked oh so sweet with her new bangs and her husband Suj looks even leaner now since he is a runner!
I managed to eat healthy while there and have lost about 8 pounds in the past 5 weeks. Yippee for Angela who has also lost 8 pounds! Woo hoo! I have been eating meat only a few times a week, and have only been having fruit or raw food bars made of dates and nuts as my sweets, occasionally having frozen yogurt as a special treat within my calorie allowance. An app on my phone called My Fitness Pal has helped me tremendously. It calculates my weight, calorie intake and exercise to help me lose a pound a week. I have found the most obscure items in their calorie data base and find the app very easy to use. I still have a long way to go and I will probably be joining the YMCA so I can use more than my exercise bike this summer!

Christina and Jenny my two beauties!


  1. Good luck with the weight loss, I'm trying to jump on board as well! my gym membership was too expensive, im thinking about trying one of those work out videos at home.

  2. Glad I got to see you when you were here, but I always feel guilty that I am cutting into your Kavi time. We really miss you guys and can't wait until we can finally make the move to Alabama.

  3. I've been using my fitness pal, too! Have had it for about a year now and it has been the thing that has helped me theist with my goal of a healthier lifestyle. I also use Walkmeter on my's a gps pedometer and calcs the calories burned as well as the usual stuff.

    Congrats on your success!
