Tuesday, September 1

I feel different. I feel like reading these blogs is sinking in. I know there are readers out there that truely want me to succeed. They want me to learn from their struggles. They want to let me know they were just like me. Struggling with losing weight.

Yesterday I went to my TOPS meeting and was down 4.2 pounds. I was happy but I have to be consistant with my eating. I have to be honest about what I eat. I have to realize that all foods have calories weather eaten in public or at home where no one else knows what I eat. My cats can't tattle on me!!

I bought salad ingredients recently and on Saturday I cut up the green pepper, cucumber, red onion and added peas. I made 2 large containers of it all!! I made a bowl afterwards and used a small bit of low-fat dressing and it was delicious!! Later on I met up with Scott to watch his band play. I was having a great time and became a bit tipsy, Scott was the designated driver, because I ate just a banana and yogurt for breakfast and then the salad for dinner. I would like to dance more but don't feel I look good doing it because of my weight. I enjoyed moving the upper half of me to the beat of their music while sitting. One day soon I will get up on the dance floor and want to have people look at me.


  1. Congrats on your loss!

    I want you to succeed! I do care! I *am* just like you, and always will be, I'm just a chapter ahead in the book. ;-) Won't it be great when we both finish the book? =)

    Do you journal? Get in the practice of writing down everything you eat, good, bad, indifferent. Or use the TOPS sheets you can print out. Write it all out. Pretty soon that will be habit, you'll see when you're not eating enough or too much and you'll learn to adjust.

    You ARE doing this! You had a fantastic loss this week!

  2. WOW!! What a fantastic loss girl! And I'm so proud of you for the healthy eating choices....I knew the bad stuff would get less and less...you are doing so great and I'm loving seeing the transformation in your life. I, too, look forward to the day when I can dance again and enjoy being looked at when doing it. I wrote a post entitled "Shake What Your Mama Gave Ya'"...check it out when you have some time. :)

  3. Wow - great loss! Yes, those "invisible" calories do add up, lol!
