Weigh Day - Minus 41.8 pounds and Happy New Year!

It's official!  Between Turkey Day and New Years, the season where everyone expects to gain 10 pounds, I lost 7.2.  Does that put me 17 pounds ahead?

I've been doing this for 5-1/2 months now.  I got started by eating frozen diet meals and now I'm cooking!  I'm enjoying exercising, and miss it when I can't do something physically active.  Almost everything in my closet is too big, including shoes. My rings are falling off my fingers.  I put some tape on my wedding ring, but it's still flopping around.

And now it's a new year with new goals!  For the first time in my life I made it through the holidays without derailing my diet!  I think I can reasonably expect to lose between 50 and 75 pounds this year, getting me that much closer to my goal!  

But first, I have to take care of today, and then tomorrow, and then the day after that.  His mercies are new each morning!

Happy New Year!   


  1. Woohoo!!! How exciting! Not only did you do it, but you lost weight every single week, right? Wow. Yes, you did it! You went to many parties, and you did it! You stayed on track and racked up a 7.2 pound loss! How exciting to read about your goals for this year. And yes, I think you are definitely 17 pounds ahead! Joy joy joy to you!

    Love you,
    Your sister

  2. FAB-U-LOUS!!! You are a far better person than I as over this past month I did manage to find a few of the pounds I had lost! But I know the program and will get back on it and lose those pounds once again. It will be a little easier, I think, because you INSPIRE me! Thanks!

    Blessed New Years to you! Jill
