We are fam-i-ly......

{Yee-haw, it's a family reunion round-up!}

...reunited and it feels so go-od!!  It's a long weekend in Canada and I'm going "home" to the city I grew up in for a family reunion. They're actually calling it a "Wine-Reunion"...what does that say about my family?... that apparently we're a bunch of Winoholics!   Nothing wrong with that I say, at least we're like-minded!

I'm not looking forward to driving with my 2 kids for 3 hours without Husband and I'm definitely not looking forward to sharing a hotel room with my parents who are also coming down. Just the 5 of us in a hotel room for 3 days.  Some more wine you say? yes. please.


That aside it should be fun, I'm looking forward to catching up with family I haven't seen in years and if it weren't for my pesky kids I'd be enjoying a whole lotta wine. But instead I'll be running around after Kid #2 since he insists on climbing up on chairs, tables, walls, etc.  We have dinners on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at family members homes and are any of the houses baby-proofed? Unlikely, so I'm praying the damage done will be minimal. No one wants their nick-nacks destroyed by a toddler. I'm going to be run ragged trying to keep my aunt's homes intact!

In the meantime in preparation for this upcoming weekend I've desperately aggressively tried to lose the last 5 lbs that have been dogging me.
I've tried everything lately, intense workouts, low carb, 48 hour liquid fast/cleanse (for reals) and just about everything else out there. And has it worked? No.  I swear my body has had enough of dieting. After losing 60lbs (on Weight Watchers) its pretty much said "no more weight loss for you Mama."  No matter what I do I can't seem to shake these last lbs to get back to my pre-second baby weight.  Maybe it's time to throw up the white flag and give up??!  Is it too much to ask to look decent in front of relatives I haven't seen in years?!? Apparently. Is 5 lbs really going to make a difference one way or another. No.
Now to figure out what to wear....

Have fun! I hope you end up relaxing more than you think you will. That's always the best, to have more adult time than expected. You deserve it!

Have a BLAST! Weight Watchers is an amazing thing. I hit that same wall when I got to the 5lbs to get to pre-baby weight. No luck here either. Look at it this way... if you DID lose those 5lbs and went to the reunion sans kids... you probably would have drank enough wine to gain it all back (at least I would have!) :) Travel safe!!

Don't give up girl! You're just at a plateau, now it's all about working out and food, you can do it!

I wish my family would have wine reunions, most of them don't drink :-( Booo lol.

I just stumbled across your blog and it seemed like you were talking for ME! my family has cocktails...wine would prob. be much better, Have a wonderful day and it's nice to meet you!

FUN! I am dying to know how the diet trick works! I'm desperate for some new dieting that doesn't involve not eating....I'm kind of not down with that.

P.S. I put a link on my blog to your site for having the bestest comment on my brown hair posting! xoxox

Losing 60 lbs in itself is amazing, I hope losing weight in the future goes well for you! Glad you are enjoying the time with your family and I hope the road trip part went alright, enjoy your time with them! :)
