Winter Solstice 2011

We decided to celebrate Winter Solstice for a bit of a change this year. It came on the December 21st (well, the 22nd in other parts), and we had a good time. Of course our dinner spread was fabulous. And I posted all the recipes on here of course!

We went out to a bouncy house place where the kids can go play for a while and I shopped for jeans. I've been going through clothes so quick. Of course you know I have been doing the Weight Watchers Points Plus Program since 6 weeks post partum in May 2011. I wore a size 18 or 20 and I felt so bloated and fat. LOL! I know I just had a baby but I decided it's time for some serious lifestyle changes. I just LOVE Weight Watchers Points Plus, and it is breastfeeding friendly. I am now in a size 5/6 barely 8 months postpartum and very close to my goal of a size 4. Happy about that! I also do an hour of Power Yoga everyday and I cannot tell you the difference it makes in how I look and feel. It is AMAZING. Makes me feel so centered and with it.

I started Weight Watchers May 23rd, 2011:

But my main goal really is to get in better health. We parents want to be around as long as we could for our kids, and I decided that I can't waste any time. My kids are very important to me and I want to take care of myself as best as I can so I can take care of them for as long as I can. And Weight Watchers makes it easy for me. Thank you, Weight Watchers!

And here are a few pictures of our family from our Winter Solstice celebration. It was fun!

Opening Presents! They get them earlier than the 25th!

Happy Winter Solstice, folks!
