Uneventful week

Dang weight loss this week....I am EXACTLY the same weight I was last week. Guess I should be happy that I didn't gain anything. I will increase my exercise this week and see what happens.
What a difference in my clothes.....I bought my first pair of size 8 jeans and they fit beautifully; I know I said I wasn't going to buy a lot of clothes in different sizes, but I have to...nothing fits....also got a new pair of capri's to wear when the weather warms up again. (I can always have a yard sale, I guess.) The difference is astounding.....when I started the weight loss as compared to now......I was wearing a size 16 a size 8. What a difference a few months can make in following a diet and exercising.........eating the right kinds of foods. I'm sitting here shaking my head; it's hard to believe. And all because of that entry form in that Sunday paper last August.......Til next week...happy dieting!! I'm off now to my son and daughter-in-law's.....we're going to sit in her hot tub and dream of Hawaii.......little swim suits and cabana boys..................

Yay......another pound lost......that makes 41.6 pounds gone.....nearly 42......can't believe it!! Even after 6 months now, I have to pinch myself to see if it's true....then I look in the mirror...lordy. We've come a long way, baby. I've got a ways yet to go, but I'm more confident now than ever that I'll reach my goal.
EVERYONE now that comes to our office, comments on my wt loss; more often than not, they ask me how and I just tell them to come to the FOY website or better yet, come in for a consultation with these great folks. I keep their number now at my desk!
I feel so much better, not only physically, but mentally as well. If anyone says they are happy being overweight, I'll tell you now that they are telling a tall tale and just don't know what to do to get started on losing it. It's never too late.....just DO IT. And exercise...what a stress reliever, plus it helps tone those flabby arms and legs!
I decided I'm going back to is my reward for losing all this weight....come next January, I'll post a picture of me on the beach. I've got some miles saved up and when I get my $500 committment fee back for completing the program successfully, that's where I'm going. A friend has already committed to going with me..I wish my fit and trim husband would come, but he wants to wait and go another time, so it's a girl's trip. We are going to share dinners (less calories!) and WALK everywhere......I'm so excited.
Well, til next week....I hope spring has sprung and we can get outside and enjoy some nice weather.

40.6 POUNDS!!

Jeepers, I don't know where last week went other than I had to work all weekend and then I came down with a nasty springtime cold on Wednesday.....I'm miserable. My husband had it the week before and now it's my turn, darn it.

Well, I'm now 40.6 pounds lighter on my feet. Yay!!!!!!!! The elation is coming a little late as I was feeling terrible yesterday when I weighed in; the reality kinda hit me today as Robert and I were talking about it this morning. He's also lost another couple pounds. WOW!

I haven't been to the gym for a week; I did go for a 2 mile walk with my grandson on Monday and then a much shorter one yesterday just to get some fresh air hoping to feel better. (I didn't)

I am in a size 10 jean now; I can't believe it. My elbows have points on them again, I can feel my shin bones even. I really, really need to get a new picture on here....we tried several weeks ago, but the image was in a format that this program couldn't read (raw), so when I feel better and lose the red-nosed drawn look, I promise to get one family in Minnesota hasn't seen me since September; boy, are they going to be surprised!
