Thanks, I needed that.
Living with a man who thinks donuts and chocolate chip cookies are health food is tough. He gets his donuts in the AM at the Legion, out of sight from me. He also likes fried foods from the vegetable group. He makes unbelievable homemade french fries from Russet potatoes. Which of course I have to dip into mayo instead of ketchup. Argh!

A blonde was overweight, so her doctor put her on a diet. "I want you to eat regularly for 2 days then skip a day, eat regularly 2 days then skip a day and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you'll have lost at least 5 pounds."

When the blonde returned, she shocked the doctor by losing nearly 20 pounds. "Why, that's amazing!" the doctor said, "Did you follow my instructions?" The blonde nodded. "I'll tell you though I thought I was going to drop dead that third day." "From hunger, you mean?" "No, from skipping."

Maintaining - I'll take that for now, even though it is a couple of lb above where I'd like, as we are going out to eat and drink with friends and relatives a lot, and no sign of that slowing down for a while.

The good news is I ordered a new linen outfit from JJill and it was too big . The bad news is I am up 1/2 pound and leaving on vacation in a week !

Moe, I just bought a really cute lightweight cardigan and tank top at JJ, on sale, both pieces came to $38 including tax. Their sizes must run a little big because the tank is a medium and fits perfectly.

My efforts to continue losing weight have stalled--I don't go up, I don't go down--maybe the scale is broken! I just went to the gym for the first time in a couple of months (hmm, I wonder if that has something to do with the stall? ). So I'm going to buckle down and get serious.

Date Weight
1/5 214.2
2/2 198.2
3/2 189.4
4/6 186.0
4/18 185.0
Goal 183.0


I've been seeing 186's on the scale since mid-March, but finally I've broken through that plateau.

A waitress is explaining to a guest in the restaurant that the specialty of the day is calf tongue in beautiful port wine sauce. The guest shakes his head and says, "I don't want anything that comes from an animal's mouth, just give me some eggs."
