Here goes nothing.

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

A co-worker of my husband's is on this site and figured I might enjoy the program. So, here I am.
I've just about given up with weight loss lately. I've been dieting forever and have been making progress but I'm slipping and getting bored. I've hit another "plateau" (oh joy, oh bliss) emoticon
I swear I'm just about ready to have a junk food picnic. Having the kids home for summer break is really hard. The teenagers eat constantly, mindlessly actually. They are all off to various Universities in the fall.
The younger kids are more reasonable. They eat what I plan to serve, at the time I plan to serve it. The teenagers throw a monkey wrench into all my plans. They are coming and going back and forth for work etc. In the middle of the night, I am awaken by the aroma of nachos drenched in cheese as my teenagers prepare a midnight snack.
AArrrgggghhhhh!!!!! It doesn't help that the instant I have cleaned up after a meal that some teenager finally crawls out of bed and decides to dig into the fridge and start cooking again. Of course the clean up is left to me as they run off..last minute to get to work.
It will be a relief when they are all out for the fall back to school. Yes, I wrote that for the world to read. I.NEED.THEM.TO. GO.
Love them..but they're driving me nuts. Plus..how can they eat so much and be so skinny. emoticon

    I am right there with you. One of my sons gained a pound during his physical to go to scout camp. He was one pound under minimum.. I will give him one. FREE NO QUESTIONS ASKED as they say.

    I like summer but, I agree 100% with the frustrations.

    LOL! I have a 14 year old who thinks the same as your teens. I love him and think in just over 4 years he will be leaving to go to college. I want him to go but I don't. I will miss him even if I don't kill him before he goes, lol. (I am kidding there).
