Well, I just dropped the only swap I was going to do in June... I'm just too busy! Add into my schedule the hour per day for exercising... now I'm super busy!! I won't be completely left out though... I still have the Buzz Cuts Bee, the Round Robin, and the Quilt Blocks for Show and Tell.

I also have the Sweet Dreams Bee- it's my month, and I am mailing my fabrics out today! It is SO exciting! I can't wait to see what blocks everyone makes. It's better than Christmas!

Thank you to everyone who left me such encouraging comments yesterday! They really meant a lot to me!! Besides being healthy and in shape, I now have a little something more to work towards... Hubby has promised me a laptop computer when I have lost 100 pounds! Now, I need to be honest. I have no need at all for a laptop- I just want one! So he's going to get me one, and a wireless router for the house when I reach that goal!

I did want to answer one comment in particular... My lovely guild friend Linda is right- there is a lot of pressure today to live up to standards set by Hollywood. But I think everyone would agree that my weight is not healthy. I have no particular final weight goal, or a particular size clothing I want to fit into. I just want to be fit and healthy- I don't want to look like Angelina Jolie!


  1. Jennie,

    I'm so impressed with your honesty on yesterday's post. You can and you will get through the journey and come out healthier and better for it! I started at 196 in January, and I'm down 25 pounds as of this week. I too gained for many of the same reasons as you...

    Email me anytime you need support!


  2. Good for you Jennie! Taking care of yourself needs to be first - anytime you need a cheerleader let me know :)
