Karen - Weigh In Week 14- The Flowers Dare You To Complain

Goal: Lose 35 pounds in 6 months the French Skinny Way.
Lost this week: 1 pound
Total lost so far: 15 pounds

The scale moved one pound this week. I'm never going to meet my goal at this rate.
Off to Grandma Dee's house.

It's Rosalie's birthday. We take her to breakfast.
Fresh orange juice.

A delicious latte.

Freshly baked muffin.

Dessert. Yum.

Time spent in Mom's garden.
It's my healing garden.

No one cares if you have met your goal for the week.

Or if the laundry is done.

It just gives you beautiful tomatoes.

In all shapes and sizes.

The Hummingbirds don't care if you are sad or not.

The flowers dare you to complain.

By the time I leave, I have a new plan.
It's time to talk to Shaboom and see what I'm doing wrong.


  1. Such gorgeous garden photos...can't wait to see my own tomatoes grown!

  2. Beautiful photos! I need a healing garden. I hope Shaboom can figure out a solution! Don't get discouraged! I am learning how to make baguette's today. I'm going to blog about it and dedicate it to you! I'm no Betty Crocker, so hopefully this works My friend and I have been planning this "lesson" for six months and finally got our schedules together. Bread making/wine drinking doesn't get better than this. Thanks for all of your encouragement lately! You are the BEST!

  3. Thanks guys!

    zanymad, You are too nice. I've never made my own baguettes! That sounds fantastic and I can't wait to read about it:)
