Weighing Matters

my journey to b.e.t.t.e.r



Three days in a row I’ve been here. I usually wait at least that long to post a weight loss, so it’s official. Here’s the 18 pounds I posted about yesterday! Eighteen pounds gone!

One more person noticed today. Trudy. She said [after looking at my bum and thighs] “You’re sure looking good these days!” That makes four [count them! f.o.u.r] people who have noticed. [Darlene, Becky, Jan, and Trudy.] [Not counting my family, who have been listening to me talk ‘diet and exercise’ for the whole six months.] Hubby is the only close relative who hasn’t said a word. He pretty much has his own things to think and worry about and wears blinders most every day.

So, yah. Two pounds to go to goal. [Although I’d be perfectly happy to stay here the rest of my life.]

We had night RS meeting this evening and had a huge Thanksgiving Dinner. I put my share on a take-home plate [for hubby] and put it in the church refrigerator while we ate and played a “Gratitude” game. I did have some salad, pickles and olives, but I had already eaten enough for the day and didn’t really want to eat an entire Thanksgiving Dinner that late at night. I felt good about it. I didn’t make a fuss. No one else made a fuss. I didn’t want to attract attention. I really had such a lovely evening with the sisters in my ward. No guilt. No bloated tummy right before bed. No regrets!

N.o. R.e.g.r.e.t.s!

That feels so good!

  1. Did the sudden weight loss of the last month start when you started the lemon juice thing? Just wondering if there is a connection???????

  2. I don’t know. My guess is not. I didn’t take it the whole time. I took it for two weeks and then lost the two oils for about a week. Then took it again for about a week then ran out of lemons. I just barely started again yesterday.

    My guess is that I have been working my butt off for the past 6 weeks and exercising like crazy and had no sugar whatsoever and not eaten late and exercised some more and taking my supplements, so my body felt confident that I wasn’t in a concentration camp and was willing to let me lose 2 pounds. Hardly rapid weight loss. I got to 144 on October 21 so it’s been two weeks. I also had a poop fest for the colonoscopy.
