WI #18 and the dangers of sledding.


My husband decided to take the kids out sledding yesterday afternoon. They all had fun until my son fell off his sled and hit the back of his head on some ice. We took him to urgent care and they decided that he needed stitches or the medical glue stuff - they let him decide (duh, he's 5, of course he doesn't want stitches). I personally think that stitches are better. I used to work in a dental office and sometimes the glue that we used for surgeries would dislodge. The Dr. assured us that he would be fine with the glue, so what's a mom supposed to do. I didn't want to be the meany who says "no, please stick my child repeatedly with a needle" so now he has a chunk of glue in the top/back of his head.

Now on to me - today was WI #18 and I fully anticipated a gain. I was sad to see my streak end, but I figured this was the week to do it. Well, I managed to 'SQUEAK' by and get a loss of 0.2 lbs. That's the least possible that you can lose at a WW meeting because their scales work in intervals of .2

So, even though it was still a 'loss', it was DEFINITELY the kick in the butt that I needed to get myself back on track. It puts me at a 2 lb loss so far in the BLBE challenge, which is not enough.

 I don't want to let my team mates down - GO TEAM LYNN!!! - so I will do MUCH better this week.

Hey Girl, atleast u didn't gain. 0.2 is better then nothing. Remember a loss is a loss, and u were expecting a gain! Your streak isn't gone. U are doing so good! Keep it up, we all have weeks that are worse then others! Just keep on going!

The medical glues have way improved- we actually used them in heart valve repairs! Oh the wonders of science...

Congrats on the loss, its a step further! You're doing great, go team Lynn!
