Happy New Week, Best Buddies:

I feel better today and just came back from the gym. Typically, I work out Tuesdays with my favorite trainer - but tomorrow I am staying with my husband while he has an outpatient surgery. I am slightly concerned because I believe he will go under full anesthesia for the procedure. He is very healthy, so all should be well.

The remnants of the "French Bread Debacle" are still around. I am amazed how much wheat bloats the system.

Happy May Day my Best Buddies!

I just came home from my workout - it was tough! I have a sinus headache...and possibly reacting to some white flour wheat I ate yesterday while at the winery with friends. I had my usual flax crackers and guacamole...but did have some French bread and cheese! Bloated my weight up like three pounds!

Happy Friday, my Best Buddies!

I hit my current goal for weight a whole week early!!! I saw 163.8 on the Idiot Boxes today - but I only log the average for the week so settled on 164.6 for the week.

Greetings my Best Buddies!

I feel blessed with all the support from my Buddies - which is why I write my "Best Buddies" all the time. Today, I decided to log a modest loss because both the Idiot Boxes have shown consistently lower numbers over the past 10 days. I hope I can make my goal - there often are fluctuations up and down!

Happy Saturday, Best Buddies!

Today is rest day from the gym, and I opted to do a 24 hour fast from solid food from dinner Friday to dinner tonight.

Well, I just shocked the hell out of myself! While getting a manicure and pedicure, the staff (who have known me for years) told me my clothes were just TOO big on me. I bought some new clothes on sale - athletic shorts size medium, denim shorts size 12, and four tops from the "petites" area sizes PM or PL. My shoulders and arms are big from weight lifting!


HOLY CRAP - I had no idea! I was once size 22 and 12 was my goal size...and I have a few more pounds to drop so who knows?
