From: Walk for Autism

April is Autism Awareness Month. On Friday, April 2, 2010 (Autism Awareness Day) I joined a group from Autism Speaks on the NBC morning news to do the Friday dance with weatherman Andy Avilos and friends. Although you I'm in back and you can’t see my face or my wonderful attempt at doing the limbo under the Autism Speaks banner, I’m on TV doing the Friday dance! Please support our family as we raise funds for a very worthy organization that is doing very important work helping families, prom

Walk now for Autism

Join me and the family in our efforts to support Walk Now for Autism! Once again, we are participating in Walk Now for Autism to help find a cure for autism. As you may know, my son Sean has a form of autism called PDD-NOS. This stands for Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified. Sean is a very sweet boy who enjoys Star Wars, Lego video games and Tae Kwon Do. He started high school this year and is involved with the Best Buddies program at his school. Thankfully, he is high fun

Nose to Nose with Ringo Starr

On Monday, July 7, 2008 I had the unique honor of attending Ringo's birthday happening at the Hard Rock hotel in Chicago. I wiggled myself in next to the CNN camera and got some great pictures. I have posted them up on www.myspace.com/katdaddy9 Looking forward to seeing Ringo and the band again on Sunday! Peace & Love Kat

We are walking for Autism Speaks

My family is participating in Walk Now for Autism to help find a cure for autism. As you probably know, my son has an autistic spectrum disorder called PDD so autism is something that touches our family personally every day. Autism is the second most common developmental disorder in the United States affecting one in every 150 children born today. Despite some promising discoveries, the cause of autism is unknown and a cure does not exist. Research is crucial. Every 20 minutes another child is

*Results not Typical

Wooooooo Hooooooo!!!! I DID IT! I maintained my goal weight through my birthday, the holidays, some pizzas and one of those all the meat you can possibly eat Brazilian steakhouses. And I actually went down a pound. I was actually getting a little nervous there for awhile with all that food and not being able to weigh in for several weeks because of the Weight Watchers meetings being cancelled for three sessions due to the holidays. When week number six rolled around, I had to miss the meeting t

I lost nearly four and a half pounds this week!!!

When I weighed in at my weekly Weight Watchers meeting yesterday, I found that I had lost 4.4 pounds. Woooooohoooooo!!! That was a huge amount for me to lose in one week. I felt I was down for the week, but didn't think it added up to that much. After all, I had eaten at Chili's Saturday. (BTW - I just found out their chicken cobb salad has 28 points!! That's twice as much as my naughty little margarita chicken. Beware of wolves in sheep's clothing.) Generally, I have been taking of less than a

Ooooops

Dayaamm! I took a little vacation over the 4th of July holiday and gained 1.4 pounds over the last two weeks. I went to Hollywood and ate at the world famous Mel's Diner and some other places that were not so good for my diet. Where is an Applebee's Weight Watchers menu when you need one? Traveling is such a challenge because you are eating out every meal. I slipped this time but I just have to get back with the program.

Taking a vacation

Michael and I are off vacationing in LA for a few days. It is really nice out here and the weather is great. We've been visiting with my brother and Barbara, and it has been quite enjoyable. My brother took me on a very scenic ride to the ocean, Venice, Santa Monica and through Topanga canyon, which is absolutely gorgeous. We also went over to Hollywood and checked out the sights. We had a rough start coming out here. We had a stopover in Las Vegas where I won sixty big ones on video poke

Losing it

OK... time to lose some weight. I am tired of getting old and fat and achy. I joined Weight Watchers and got myself a Tony Little Gazelle Sprintmaster. I'm just starting out and I am motivated and ready to work towards a goal of losing around 30-35 pounds. I will occasionally write about my progress as it is supposed to help keep me on track and motivated. Kat

Checking out the Blog feature

Now I've got a blog..... and writer's block. hmmm... what did I accomplish today? Today I finally installed a new sound card in my computer. My computer has been without sound for awhile because the sound card was busticated. It was the first time I have ever opened up a PC. I know that sounds odd, but I was a Mac person for several years and only came over to the dark side about two years ago. PC people tend to tinker under the hood a lot more. It really wasn't that difficult at all.
