Week Two

Well, it's not 4 pounds but I still lost 2 pounds and another inch in my waist! That is 6.5 pounds and 2" in my waist in two weeks . I am still happy. It's not hard to stay on and I am not hungry.

My really good news came last night and this morning when my husband replaced the battery in my diabetes meter. I took my blood sugar two hours after dinner last night and it should read 120 or below for a normal reading. Mine was 119. Then this morning fasting was 98 and it was supposed to be under 100. Yippee! But then when I took it two ours after breakfast, I got a real surprise...It should have been below 120 and it was only 89. I am so excited that I am controlling my blood sugar without meds...woohoo!

Hi all!

Sorry it has been so long. I did my knee in again. Been down with that quite a bit. I think I walked too much too soon. From the last time I posted I walked for 3-4 more days after that and it has hurt ever since...Arggghhh!

My weight was going up and down...just kinda bouncing around for a couple weeks too. Frustrating!

I talked to a friend of mine who was just starting the Belly Fat Cure lifestyle and she has been stuck for a long time. It promises 4-7 pounds in the first week. (she had already lost 4 pounds in 5 days) Yeah Diane!

Then I went grocery shopping at Costco and as I was checking out the books, as I always do, (don't you?) well anyway, there was the book by Jorge Cruise. I thumbed thru it and there is lots of recipes with great pictures (I'm a sucker for the pictures). Of course it hopped into my cart.

This is my second week and I lost 4 1/2 pounds the first week & a half an inch in my waist. So far this week I have lost 1 1/2 pounds. I am finally down 30 pounds. Since I quit work last September I have lost 45 pounds. I don't usually count the first 15 as it was mostly fluid buildup but I am encouraged anyway.

Now that I have made that goal (30 pounds) it is off to my next goal which is just two pounds away. Then I will be back to what I weighed when I got pregnant with my youngest son. Unfortunately, my body really likes that weight, so I need to make sure that I keep pushing to get past that!

Hope you are all having a good week and I will try to post more often. (like there are people actually reading this--makes me feel better thinking that there might be!)
