this weekend.....

starting tomorrow chris and i will be in kennewick for our Guided by God's Spirit District Convention. 3 days of talks, interviews, scriptures, notes, knowledge and holy spirit! i am so looking forward to this!

originally we were going to go last weekend to the one our old congregation in spokane was assigned to, but we changed our mind and we're going to the one our new congregation is going to be at. i'm kinda nervous because i won't really know anyone there...kinda new for me...to go to a convention and not know 4 out of 10 people walking by. but i guess it will be a new adventure and a chance to meet people and make new friends. :D chris and i are signed up to help with cleaning and watching the contribution boxes.

it starts tomorrow morning! so excited!

we are staying with a couple in kennewick that are part of the sign language group there. we met them in april when we were down there visiting. they are so sweet and fun. i'm excited to spend more time with them and get to know them better.

in other news: i'm starting a new diet soon.... i.e: saturday! i know it seems silly to start a new diet on the weekend of the convention, but it will actually work out perfect! the first two days i'm supposed to gorge myself before i start 20 full days of only 500 calories. there are a few sisters in my hall that are on this diet right now, and are doing soooo well. loosing stored fat and dress sizes left and right! i so need this. i know its usual to gain weight right after you get married...but its about time to put a stop to it.

i have been debating on whether or not to post about this on my blog....its pretty personal and hard for me to deal with, but i decided that if i "go public" with it, maybe it will be the extra incentive to keep going and loose the weight. i have gained about 40 lbs since chris and i got married. i am squeezing into my 1 pair of size 15 jeans, and that's the only pants i have to wear, aside from my sweats. :( i am feeling so bad about myself. there has been a lot of contributing factors to my weight gain: having a husband who loves to cook and who is AWESOME at it, a fairly sedentary job (with lots of snacks sitting around), a good bout of depression and none of that is helped by my PCOS (poly-cystic ovary syndrome). but one sister in my hall in-particular, Lisa, has kinda taken me under her wing and is helping me plan out and start this diet. i'm so happy to have her as my friend. question: should i post before and after pictures?? :P might be fun! lol.

so that's what i've got going for this weekend. i would love to hear what's up with you! and maybe even some thoughts about weight loss and how to keep going when it gets tough.

thanks. :D
