The inflatable pool Nila swam in yesterday for the first time, Nila, and I are all round and squishy! I said last week that I was going to work on losing 25 pounds – from 150 to 125 – with my friends at Ragamuffin Soul. This morning I weighed in at 146.8. Good for me! I only worked out once this week, but we have eaten a little better this week than last (um, but maybe last night I made a pitcher of sweet tea using our Mahmood Tea from Iraq – which is a little spicier than normal tea, and um, maybe I drank four glasses, which um, might explain why I still couldn’t sleep at 2AM). I’ve got to have a sweet treat every once in a while…especially if it’s tea!
