Johanne's Journal, 04 October 2012


The magic is working again. I know how to use it. I just don't always do it. Thank goodness for fatsecret. Without it, I would have regained all the weight I lost. Even when I'm not eating the way I should, the food journal and my buddies keep me aware.

I'm thankful for:

Waking up.
My buddies.
My children.
My home.
My luxuries. (My oldest son gave me his old black and white Kindle!)
The beautiful, beautiful fall weather!
223.8 lb Lost so far: 55.2 lb.    Still to go: 23.8 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

I have all of my books on my iPad (also from my son) but it's heavy and backlit. I had no idea how great the kindle would be. It's so much easier on the eyes and wrists? And thanks. I'm pretty thrilled with the loss. At this rate, I hope to be back to my lowest weight by Christmas. Love YOU back!!!

Hi Johanne, thank you for the tip about the pillows between my knees and yes that helps but also produces heat. I promise you all my knee is great considering it takes a year and more for full recovery. I expected a lot worse. The nuisance ( and that is all it is) is lack of sleep is not great, apparently this is a common complaint with this operation. Well done you on your food recording, you get a gold star! I have a kindle app on my h t c desire hd. And was surprised at how easy it is to read on my phone, much smaller screen than the kindle. My screen is 4.3 inches. I am so happy you have a lot to be thankful for, what a lovely list. Much love Sazy xx

@ Sazy, you're a darling! @ Cindy, the kindle screen is so much better for prolonged reading. I LOVE it!

I was thinking if I got a kindle I could make the font bigger and hold off getting those reading glasses for a while.

FOL, you can set the font, quite easily, to any size you like. It means you can have a huge library in the palm of your hand. The really cool part is, there are SO MANY free books. If you get one, ask me how. Hugs!!!
