Weigh In Monday

Yep, it's Monday - my day to weigh in.  It's a nasty day out there.  Rainy, gloomy, chilly - the kind of day that makes me sad.  But in here, it's bright, sunny and warm.  When I got on the scale this morning, I had lost another 2 pounds.  Maybe not a huge loss, for sure.  But as the turtle in the story of the Tortoise and the Hare said, "Slow and steady wins the race".  So, I'm pleased.  Very pleased!!

It gets easier.  I'm eating a good breakfast every morning.  Previously, there were a lot of mornings that I just didn't want to go through the movements and so would grab a hard boiled egg and a breakfast bar.  But now, it's either oatmeal or shredded wheat for me.  The exception is on the weekends when my hubby cooks bacon and eggs - still on program, two eggs, two slices of bacon, one slice of toast with diet jelly.  But still a treat.  Evening snacks have changed also.  No more cookies, cake with milk on or candy bars.  Now, it's fat free yogurt, sugar free pudding, or Laughing Cow cheese and Triscut crackers.  My swollen feet are down, and my energy levels are up.  I love how much better I feel.  See you next Monday.


  1. YAY, Linda!!!Keep up the great work. I need to get myself moving in this direction, too.

  2. I have been behind on reading during my break. But I am back now. I am so happy for you. That is the best way to loose weight - slow and steady wins the race.
