Weigh - In Wednesday

Good morning folks!!!

Last week I told you my doctor told me to lose some weight.

Today I am happy to say that my efforts are paying off.

I have switched my usual forty-eleven diet sodas a day to 4 or 5 and lots of water. I am working on the aimless snacking. I luuuuuv pretzels and popcorn. I have really, really, really been working on the 5 a Day fruits and veggie goal. BillHubby and I have been trying to walk every day even though I didn't stretch enough and got some lovely shin splints - ugh! But throw in some yard work and serious porch cleaning and I am getting in more calorie burning activity.

My weigh -in this morning -down 1.5 pounds! YAY!!

Gotta run now! Actually I don't run. When I did I looked like a cartoon character with legs flailing.

What I mean is that I gotta get outta here.


My BFF Anne and I are meeting up the road with Bea from Bea's Blabber! We discovered we live a few miles apart, okay 30-40 minutes. But we are meeting in the middle to go THRIFT SHOPPING!!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited! Anne knows all the great spots in Durham, NC so she will be the tour guide.

If you are in the area and see a big black Trailblazer with 3 "old" ladies just a-laughin blow the horn!


  1. Good luck on the weight loss. I started Weight Watchers a week and a half ago and have really stuck with it and somehow I've managed to gain 3 lbs!!! I'm so upset, but I'm sticking with it. It has worked for me before and I know it will again. I just have to hang in there. Sounds like you are making some wonderfully wise choices. Keep it up!

  2. Thank you Mindy! It's always easier to gain than lose weight. I know a little about Weight Watchers. If you are following their meal plan and/or eating their foods then your body may be adjusting to good calories. You'll lose weight. I'm sure of it!


Do tell! Whatcha thinkin?
