First Weigh In of the New Year ......

Well tonight was my first TOPS weigh in of the new year, I was up one pound but am so thankful that it was only 1 pound .... weigh in saw me at 285.4 lbs.  That means in the last month I have managed to gain back 7.4 pounds.  Ouch, but with the holidays and all I will take my lumps and get back on track immediately.

Today was productive as I cleaned out the laundry room getting ready for delivery of my new washer and dryer on Wednesday.  I really could not convince the old pair that they should keep going for another 6 months.  They are old and tired and deserve a rest.  I was trying to figure out how many loads of clothes I have washed in the last 10 years since I got them new and didn't have a clue where to start.  On the average I do 6 loads per week x 52 weeks/year = 312 laods/year x 10 years = 3120 loads of laundry.  When I look at it like that no wonder they are tired, that's a heap lot if clothes to clean.

I did splurge a little and got a top end pair as my dad always said that if you cheap out on necessary items you will regret it.  I couldn't believe that there are so many fancy features on the new machines.  They are all push button and now have steam cleaning and  .... well the list goes on and on.  I'm still trying to figure out all the bells and whistles on my Lexus, now I have another challenge.  Isn't life wonderful!


  1. Hi Tessa! I'm glad to see you are still with it! Just wanted to say Happy New Year, and I wish you all the best!!!

  2. It's like Christmas Tess! I am so happy you have posted twice in a week. I miss you when you are gone.

    Those machines sounds wonderful - steam cleaning? Wow. I want one too! And I completely agree with your Dad - especially with the big appliances like that. Have fun with them.

    And good luck this week! :)
