The winner for my bow giveaway was announced today. Also, there is a sale going on as well! Check it out!!!

I'm going camping with the kids tomorrow. My family goes camping at Fall Creek Falls every year. I love it. I'm a little worried this time around though..Being pregnant and all..I think I might have a hard time. We'll see. The kids are so excited though!

Chad was offered the job at the bank. It's scary though because it's 100% commission. Blegh. 

I have five weddings to attend this summer! Dallas and Spencer, my brothers, Charles and Chase, Chad's brothers and my cousin robby are all getting married!! Crazy huh? I love weddings though. So I'm excited. 

We are still getting the house ready to sell! Chad put down a new tile backsplash and tile on our kitchen floor. When it is all finished I'll post pictures.

Love you all!!

Brittany's 17th Week of Pregnancy

Ok, just to let you know, I have started gaining weight since the last time I posted anything on here. So, you're not going to hear from me much anymore. As of Friday I have only gained 1.9 lbs since the last time I lost anything. That sounds amazing right!?! Well, I do feel good about that, except I have an excuse. I was nursing up until 2 weeks ago and being prego at the same time. My doctor finally told me I HAD to stop nursing. So, I'm sure I'll gain it all fast for now on! Anyways, so here are some pictures of me from today, 17 weeks along, and last weeks, 16 weeks.

Left: 16 weeks; Right: 17 weeks

Brittany's 21st week

So I got on the scale this morning thinking I was for sure at the point of no return, in other words that their was no way I was still losing weight and that I was for sure gaining now. I guess I was wrong...I dropped 2 lbs!!! Which means I am only 1.5 lbs from my pre-pre-pregnancy weight. Dang, I wish I could keep going on, at this point 11.5 lbs does not sound like it would've been all that hard. But, I guess 1.5 will have to be my goal now. I have not worked out since before I went home to TN, I have really just lost all desire to exercise b/c I am pregnant. When, really this is a time I should be exercising right? Well anyway, I owe the weight loss this week to having no appetite and everything making me feel sick. That's what I'm guessing anyways. Well, hopefully next week I can lose that 1.5 lbs b/c I don't know how much longer I am going to be able to lose more weight. Good luck to me!

Brittany's 18th-20th Weeks

I'm guessing pretty soon I'm gonna stop losing weight and start gaining like crazy. My last post I let you all know that I was prego. I was in TN for 2 weeks and am now home. I got home Tuesday night. I got the stomach flu Monday while I was there, so that probably helped with my weight loss this week. I lost 1.1 lbs since last time I updated. So I have lost 16.5 lbs, 3.5 lbs from my 1st pre-pregnancy weight. Maybe I can make it to that weight, but there's no way I can make it to my goal of losing 13.5 more lbs. But next year I can start all over!

Oh well...

So I haven't been weighing in with the holidays and all, but the main reason why is b/c we said that the only way this competition was off is if one of us got pregnant, neither one of us were expecting that, so yeah, Brittany is, so it's pretty much off. We will have to do this again! Iknow she is having a hard time with this, but she looks great! She will be fine, it will be hard at first i'm sure but her babies will be the best of friends! The holidays have put me behind, i've gained alittle okay 3 pounds! I can usually lose what i've gained pretty quickly though, So i'll work on that this week!

Brittany's Update

I didn't weigh in this week because I am in Tennessee for Thanksgiving. I will be here for another week, so I will not weigh in until next week. I do have some news though. I have been keeping this a secret for the past 4 weeks. I wanted to wait until I came home and told my family first. So, as you're probably guessing from what I just said...I am pregnant. I have not been very happy about this fact since I found out. I have still been losing weight, and will continue to try as long as possible, the healthy way of course. After I can't lose anymore I will update you on my pregnancy. I am trying to be positive, but if you have been following along with this weight loss blog then you know I have been trying my hardest to get back to my normal size and weight. This 2nd pregnancy is putting a huge damper on my plans. I only had about 4 months of freedom from being pregnant. These babies are going to be less than 13 months apart. I am terrified, but I am praying for the strength and patience to get through this. Obviously, this pregnancy was not planned. We were doing everything right to prevent getting pregnant, until next year of course, but it just didn't work. So, obviously Heavenly Father really wanted me to be pregnant AGAIN for some reason. I just have to have faith that this is really His plan and everything Will work out.
I'm sorry for going on forever like this, but I just felt like a blog is the place where I can really share my feelings. Any advice, suggestions, cheering up?

Brittany's 16th & 17th Weeks

Last week I didn't post anything for the 16th week b/c I was in California. My mother-in-law asked me to go w/ her to visit her mom and sister on Sunday and I would leave the next day. Of course right!? California! So, we drove 14 hours there, got car sick and threw up and got there Monday night. (there was tons of traffic in Las Vegas, and later on a bad car crash that allowed us to go 3 mls in 1.5 hrs) We stayed all the way through Saturday morning, it took 12 hours that time. Anyway, so b/c I wasn't at home to weigh myself Friday morning I didn't wanna have to do it Sunday morning. I figured I'd just wait until this past Friday, and hopefully loose the vacation weight I probably gained as well, to weigh in. So finally, the results. I lost .4lb. Which means, I have lost 15.4 lbs. 14.6 more to go til I reach my goal.
