It's Memorial Day and hubby and I are getting ready to visit his Dad and stepmother. It will be a nice visit I am sure. Tomorrow is supposed to be my third weigh-in, but I will have to sqeeze it in between appointments. I am booked almost solid tomorrow. I will have to plan ahead so I don't get caught starving to death and go off plan. I am happy to report that I have been 100% on plan since I started WW on May 8, 2001. I know that is not a long time yet but I can't remember ever sticking to any weight loss related program completely without cheating for more than a week EVER. So this is a big accomplishment for me. I will update again after my weigh in this week.

Had my third weigh in yesterday and I was down another 1.4 pounds for a total loss of 10 pounds since May 8, 2001. I am glad that I am off to a good start but want to work harder eat more fruits and vegetables and all of the water that I should. Hopefully I will have more news to report soon.

Had a great weigh in yesterday. I was down 4.4 pounds for a total loss of 14.4 pounds since May 8, 2001. I am pleased with how the program is working for me. I really have found it easy to stay with on most days. I still need to make sure I am getting in all of my fruits and vegetables and milk. I have been doing pretty good with water, but still need help with fruits and veggies. I also want to begin to exercise more, I am noticing that the fat on my body is less firm and starting to feel squishier (for lack of a better word). I want to make sure that as I lose the weight I tone up the muscles so I don't have hanging skin. I also started a new job this week and it has been kind of hectic around our house. I haven't worked in about three years so getting used to a work schedule takes some getting used to. I am hoping to keep on pace and get my star for losing 15 pounds next week.

Had a good weigh in. I was down 1.6 pounds for a total of 16 pouds and my third five pound reward. It was a hectic week getting used to work and such. The job is going ok but I don't think I want to stay long so I am looking for something with a little more computer work in it. I have been trying to do toning excercised but haven't done all that I need to. I am also struggling with drinking enough water this week. I have slipped back into my bad habit of too much diet soda. I will try to drink more this next week.

Happy Independence Day! I haven't written in awhile because it has been crazy here. Our church closed on the 24th of June and so now we have joined a new church until my husband gets called to Pastor again. In the meantime we are working on a Vacation Bible School program for the end of this month. We also spent a week at a Bible camp with about 75 kids. It was a good time but very difficult to stay OP. I was one of three cooks for Bible camp this year and I spent a lot of time in the kitchen on my feet. When it finally was time to rest a little I ate whatever was put before me instead of worrying about staying OP. Fortunately this only happens once a year. WHEW! I am beat! It took a couple of days to get totally back on track but now I am. At my weigh in yesterday I had only lost 0.2 pounds in two weeks. I am back on track now, though, and at least I did not have a gain. Hope everyone has a great fourth of July.

Had a pretty good week this week and got back on track. In my weigh in today I lost two more pounds for a total of 20.2 pounds lost. I am only a few pounds away from my 10%. I am also happy that I now have less than 100 pounds to lose. I am now 99.4 pounds away from my goal of 140. It seems like this is taking a long time and will continue to, but I also know that I did not get here overnight and it will take quite some time to get it all off. I am thankful that I have such a great husband that cheers for me along the way. Have a great week all!
