If It's Friday It Must be Weigh-In Day

Yep, it's that time...time to stare down the scale...down 1.2 pounds this week. That's a total weight loss of  17.6 pounds so far.
I have a long way to go and I won't kid you, it gets harder and harder to keep on track. I just try to keep focussed on the fact that I want this weight off before my surgery. I must admit though, when she wrote down the number on my diet tracking sheet this week, I asked her to re weigh me because my scale at home showed down a bit more...but alas, it truly was 1.2 pounds...

Back home and now facing the stare down with the fridge...just had a lovely turkey sandwich with 1 tsp fat free miracle whip, a lovely ripe tomato and a dollop of lettuce...mmm...mmm...good! Best of all I had it on Silver Hills Little Big Bread...now I know that might not mean a lot to you...but to me it means I had a toasted 2, yes I said 2, slices of bread for my sandwich.  YAY!!!! A toasted open face sandwich just does not fill you up.  I have 1 cup sugar free jello made up for a mid afternoon snack so I am good to go till supper.

We end this programming to return me to life on the OWL journey to "Rebuild".

  3. Hello well done on the weight loss. Imagine it as 1.2 pounds of actual fat and that is good. I know how hard it is. I have been fighting my weight for years. It has prevented me from enjoying lots of occasions and in fact refusing to go at all. I avoid photographs like the plague. I am trying at the moment to be healthy. Thanks for visiting me. Anne x

  7. They say a pound a week is what you should lose to stay on a normal weight lost program. Good for you, give yourself a pat on your back...And I agree with Jo and Glenda that turkey sandwich sounds good. Now just get to crafting lol.
