So secretly ... I was hoping to see 209 by Saturday. It's Friday, one more day and I weighed in at 210.4. AWESOME!!! Last Friday I was 214.4. That's 4 lbs!!! Unbelievable. I realize it is going to slow down at some point but for now? I'm enjoying the ride down the hill! I WILL see 209 soon. Doesn't really matter if it is tomorrow or not ... I'm just pleased that soon I will be back in the single digits ... inching my way closer to a healthier weight range for myself.

Got chilly here again. Our winters are a bit "bi-polar" at times. First it warms way up and rains ... then it cools way down and freezes. Which, means ice of course!!! It's a tad under 17 outside, supposed to get down to the single digits for the low tomorrow. Snowed some places in the County but not up on our hill. Which is just fine by me. We have PLENTY of snow. We had another cord of wood delivered yesterday. I hope that holds us ... the price went UP $60 a cord!!! Geez.

Today is errand day with my mama. She is getting her hair done, needs to have her blood drawn for her protime test, post office, map store ... I really don't know what else she has on her list. I need to pick up a few more fruits and veggies, put some money in the bank to cover the cost of the wood, ... I'm sure there is something else. So we'll be busy today for certain. Tomorrow she heads south for the rest of the winter and won't return until May. I do have a cousin getting married in April and I'm hoping to go down for the wedding ... so hopefully I will get to see her in April!!! Long time not to see my mama!!

Well ...time to recount what I am grateful for this morning ...

*Time with my mama ... I am indeed blessed to have her with me.

*Not only losing weight but having fun doing it ... feeling so much better!!

*Fatsecret friends who astound me with their kindness and generosity ... you know who you are!!!

*4 days off work ... yes again ... I'm liking this pattern!!

Well ... coffee is done perking, need to decide what juice I'm going to make today. Everyday is an adventure in that realm!!! Have a wonderful day, my wonderful friends.

Wonderful! I am happy to read about your weight dropping and your excitement! You go... keep that fire alive! Enjoy the day w/ your momma, what a great daughter you are! Just curious? Do you fight/argue at all? LOL

No. Mom and I do not fight or argue. Never really have. Of course as a teenager I was snotty at times but truly I don't remember one fight with my mom. My dad? Oh now that's a whole different story but he's been gone for more than 20 years now. She's still my mom, 100% but we consider each other as close friends too. I'm very lucky and blessed. She's awesome.

Isabel I do think the juicing as something to do with the losses. I'm not counting calories so I don't really know how many I'm consuming. It just seemed like counting the calories in the juices was going to be cumbersome so I decided to take a leap of faith and not count. I'm usually drinking a fruit juice concoction in the morning for breakfast and some type of veggie combo later. I am eating mostly vegetarian too ... Not much poultry or beef ... Though I'm not opposed to it, just trying to really incorporate fruits, vegetables, whole fresh foods as much as I can. Whatever it is it seems to agree with me. I'm not nearly as hungry as I used to be. Strange I know, but good I think. Oh I do eat a few nuts here and there and legumes and soup. I'm really into soup these days. I had a spinach salad out today with mom cause none of the soups sounded good to me. It was delicious! So ... Juice on I say!!!

Hi Carol! I agree with everybody, you are on a roll and it's good to see you doing so well with your weight loss!! If the juices make you lose faster and you feel better, that's wonderful. I wish your mom a great trip and a warm(er) winter wherever she's going!

Carol ... I'm not so surprised that you are dropping the weight as I am that you don't seem to mind the "juicing". Soups sound good to me, but drinking juices are less attractive. I might try incorporating a little more of that "wet stuff" in my diet. I don't think I could totally switch ... but it would be good for me to have more variety.

You're such a hoot. Hope you had an amazing day with your mom. I know you LOVE that quality time and having her around. I'm sure you'll miss her lots. But I imagine she WON'T miss the cold weather where you are. Carol, dear, what an amazing weightloss you're experiencing. I'm so so so proud of you and your DH. I do love spinach salad, so I wish I had been with you. You're doing brilliantly. Keep up the GREAT work.
