The turkey ain't the only thing that got stuffed...

Just a quick update...last week's Thanksgiving shenanigans and high jinks brought with it, a 2.8 pound gain! I confess, I overindulged. But, that happens when you fail to plan. You know the saying ( I use it quite a bit here on my blog), If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.


I started my week off with the best intentions of staying on track, but my resolve weakened in the presence of ALL decadent desserts. I handled the Thanksgiving dinner with ease; however, my downfall transpired courtesy of the cakes, cookies, and candies that mesmerized my palate with their ooey gooey sugary sweetness!


Despite my holiday weight loss debacle, I vow to not lose any more ground this holiday season. I hope the new Weight Watchers Points Plus program gives me the spark I need to steer my weight loss into a more positive direction...more bout the new program later...LOTS MORE!


In the midst of my overindulging I managed to find time to get out and enjoy life. My boys and I attended the Usher OMG Tour...O, O, O, O, O, O...OMG! I picked up this jazzy ensemble from my new favorite store, FOREVER 21! A couple of months ago, the mall expanded the original FOREVER 21 by combining the woman's, men's, and accessories stores...AND they added a plus sizes and children's clothes.


Some of the clothes tend to lean toward the younger crowd, but after I weed through the hoochie wear, I tend to find a few age appropriate piece.


In keeping with our yearly tradition a few family members gathered at my aunt's house the day before Thanksgiving for GUMBO! Check us out, line dancing in the kitchen...GOOD TIMES!


ME AND MY MOM
Well, that concludes my Thanksgiving recap. One last thing, I apologize for the lack of blogging and blog following...no excuses. There's just no enough hours in the day!


DEAR SANTA,


CAN YOU PLEASE BRING ME TWO ADDITIONAL HOURS FOR EACH DAY? THANKS. THAT IS ALL. O, AND CAN YOU BRING ME A HUSBAND TOO...A GOOD ONE. THANKS SANTA.


SINCERELY,
TRINA

  5. The outfits are super cute! One of my goals for losing this excess weight is so I can shop at Forever 21...I know lame! But, I'm honest! Can wait to hear what you have to say about the PointsPlus. So far, I really like it!

    I'm working on those extra hours thing myself but please let me know if you have a breakthrough first.

    Will you be doing a cute as a bunny in 2011? I would love a motivational group.
