My weight & interviews

Did you SEE it???? That lady bug moved from 8 to 11 lbs lost THIS WEEK!!! Yeepee!! Can anyone tell I am happy?

Soooo I FINALLY lost those pesty 3 lbs in one week......well actually you know it has taken me MONTHS. I am now back down to where I was before we began the saga of Mickey's surgery. Wheeeeee

I've finally got that "mind set" again. Even had just vegetarian vegtable soup and a small dinner salad at our birthday celebration last week at Mi*mi's. Now, if any of you have eaten there you know what an accomplishment THAT was. Okay, so I'm patting myself on the back this week. I was getting so flustrated with having to come here each week with BAD I gained a lbs and INDIFFERENT I stayed the same.

No, this week I get to say GOOD I lost 3 lbs. So yes, I'm shouting it!!!!!!


I didn't post about my weight yesterday, on Monday, as I was suppose to do because of introducing our new BLOG Hands & Hearts.....for Him. If you haven't already come by to welcome us, please do. Those of you who have, "Thank You" so very much. Be patient with us as we develop this site.....we are really believing it will be a blessing to all of us as we face the difficult days we are experiencing.


On the Interview Me project 2 more who allowed me to interview them have just posted. Please go read Barbara and The Young Artist interview. Thank you 2 for allowing me the privilege of interviewing you. By the way, this Young Artist just won an Essay Contest put on by her local newspaper. You go girl!!! Proud of you.

Barbara said...

Congratulations Susan. I saw your bug had moved immediately.

You should shout it out - great job!

Brenda said...

Congratulations on your 3 lbs. How encouraging after the plateau you were dealing with.
I'm going to head over and read the interviews.

Dawn said...

Woo-HOO. I'm reading such a good book right now called "Never Say Diet" by Chantelle Hobbs. She's a great Christian young woman who lost 200 pounds when she reached 350 and cried out to God. You'd really enjoy the book, I think.

Nancy said...
