He loses, I gain

Literally. We've been doing weight watchers for about 3 weeks now? He has lost 5+ lbs!!!! :) and I have gained 1.8 lbs. Not sure how that is happening, but I'm actually alright with it. You ask why?? Well my pants are not fitting me, they are in fact too big! I think I'm gaining muscle weight because I've been running/biking like crazy. I do about 5 miles every other day or so and when we bike we do no less than 10 miles in one day. My thighs hate me. I had punch another hole in my belt because it didn't fit me anymore. I would like to think of it as a sign of me losing weight, but the scale does not seem to agree. I have been following exactly what weight watchers is telling me to do so I'm not sure what is going on. I am thrilled that I can notice that Chancho has lost 5 lbs. I can see it in his face. It looks a little slimmer. Yay!!

My family received bad news a few days ago about my grandmother. She has been sickly for a while now, but living with my aunt and chugging along. However, the other night she was rushed to the hospital for extreme pain in her leg. She couldn't walk. After numerous tests being done they still haven't figured out what is causing the pain, but instead found that she has an aggressive form of cancer. Yes, that ugly C word. She will be starting her radiation treatments this Monday for 2 weeks and that will hopefully reduce the spread of it and allow her to live a "normal" life. If that doesn't work they may have to operate to remove it. She's 85 years old and doesn't really want to have any surgery. She feels she has lived her life and is amazed that she made it this far. She says that as long as she is not in pain, she would like to just be at home and comfortable. I'm not really sure how I feel about this, it's all still new and for now, I guess I respect her wishes. I don't know what the best option is for her, but as long as she is happy that is all I can ask for.
When Chancho and I went to see her yesterday she was so upset that her hair wasn't done for us. That was her biggest upset of the day. She was proud to share with all the nurses and doctors that her granddaughter was engaged. She had me show pictures and my ring to anyone that walked in the room.

I got the pictures of the engagement so for your enjoyment here they are:

  2. Your ring is G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S!!!!!! Oh my goodness. Congrats. And stick with the weight watchers. It ebbs and flows. When I did it the first time I gained my first few weeks as I was figuring it out then lost 26lbs, next time around after baby another 26lbs and now I've lost 30lbs. So it works! The working out thing though is awesome! Keep at it. You can do it!!

    Oh yes and I deleted my last comment simply because I made a ton of embarrassing spelling errors. There are probably still some but oh well...can't be perfect all the time!
