Calling all EA-ers

Hey everybody! I just found out that Kameron Haban just passed away last month. He died from complications from lupus and left behind a wife and son. There is a benefit concert next friday (the 25th) at EA's Auditorium in Thatcher. Tickets are $10 and the concert starts at 7:30. Lots of people are performing as well as the current EA Acappella choir. To find out more information about ways to help the Haban family visit THIS site. This is the first time I can go to a concert down there in 3 years so I'm absolutely going to be there!

New obsession

My new obsession is my new diet. Weight Watchers! I can't say I'm an actual member, but my mil lent me some of her stuff on how to get started and keeping track of points. The first day I "tried" it I just ate like I normally do and wrote it all down. At the end of the day I added up the points. Woah! I can see where my problem is. I'm a snacker! I'm glad I have the points to keep track of everything now and if you know me, I love to make lists. This diet is right up my ally. Since starting on Sept. 1st I've lost 5 lbs already! I'm not going to meetings or weighing in anywhere, but I've got some friends who are doing it online so we are always talking about it and I've signed up for free emails from the WW website to help me with recipe ideas. I'm nervous about the holidays, but I'm glad I'm getting used to it now and not in the middle of the 6 month candy rush (Halloween to Easter). Wish me luck and check it out!
