I can't believe it's Saturday already! This week went really quick, but I guess it would since we were trying to stay warm and cozy at home due to the cold weather!

Well, today is my weigh in day and I am happy to report I am down 4.5 lbs this week, for a total of 5.5 lbs since January 1!!! This makes me feel so much better! I was feeling a little discouraged the first week with only losing 1 lb, but was determined to keep going. It really makes me want to do even better this coming week!

To make it easier for me to stick with, I have made little goals to accomplish. My first goal is to lose 10 lbs by March 1, and then keep going! My second goal is to get my "numbers" down by April 1, meaning, waist size, blood pressure, LDL and triglycerides down (yes, I do sometimes watch Dr. Oz and am going to re-read his book "YOU on a diet". He scares the crap out of me, and that's a good thing).

Does anyone have any other New Year's Resolutions to share? I'd love to hear them!

I have not started a designed diet program (i.e. Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, etc) and am not being compensated (with money or free products) to mention or review any Dr. Oz products, these are my own thoughts and feelings, but if Dr. Oz's people would like to get in touch (which would be awesome!), my email is listed on this blog!

Thank you

Hi everyone!!!

I hope everyone is having a great week! I just wanted to write a note to ask you a favor. I know I do not have a very large following. With that said, I want to ask you each to help me out! I'd like this to be a great blog, dedicated to finding the best deals out there to save all of us some money. I'd also like this blog to have some substance as well, with recipes, my weight loss (success) story, how we can impact our world and so forth. So, here's what I'm asking:

1. Tell as many people about my blog as you can. If you have your own blog, please post a link to my blog on yours. If you don't have a blog, then word of mouth, facebook, email, etc. are really awesome tools too!

2. Tell me what you want to see! If you shop at Walmart all the time and want to see the coupon matches and such, then let me know! If you want me to start shopping at other places, like Sharp Shopper, Amelia's so you can find good deals, then please tell me!!

You can email me at or you can leave a comment (just click the comment word below and it will prompt you further on how to do it!).

I'm really looking forward to hearing from you!

Have a fantastic weekend!

I wanted to share a list of places you can donate money for the people of Haiti. Unfortunately, when there is tragedy, there are also people taking advantage of "good Samaritans". This list is from CNN, they are the highest rated charities. Right now, the biggest need is money. You can also Text "Haiti" to 90999, and a $10 donation is added to your cell phone bill. How easy is that?

If you can't afford to send money at this time, prayers are also needed!

Oreos & the Manning's

Head on over to Facebook to join Oreo's the Manning's vs. the Donald's for a chance to win a free package of Oreo's on January 24, 2010. I love their commercials, I think the Manning's are hysterical (however, I thought the commercials with the William sisters are the best!). Hopefully the Manning's will win!
