FINALLY!!! I have lost over 60 pounds

I lost 1.9 this week to bring my total to 61.4 pounds.
Looking at my short term goals, I need to loose 10.1
more by Labor Day. I would like to have lost 100-110
by New Years Eve - This is my new long term goal.
I am looking at the possibility of having to change
classes in a few weeks because of a schedule change with
the fall class I teach for Harding. The class I am
teaching this year is schedule to meet from 4:30 - 7:00
on Monday nights. I am going to see if the other
instructor and I might be able to switch times (if all
the students are the same for both classes) and then
I could stay in my class. Otherwise I will have to
switch to a Thursday afternoon weight loss class. I
will let you know what happens.

-3 pounds this week

I am happier this week with a good weightloss.
I guess WATER does make a difference. I am
now only 1/2 pound shy of 60 pounds. There
is a guy from my class that announced tonight
he went over 80 - Man I can't wait to get there.
I can't believe the changes I have felt in the
past 21 weeks. I have more energy, lower
blood pressure, and my blood sugar levels are
sooo much better than they used to be. There are
6 weeks until Labor Day - My personal goal is to
have lost another 12 pounds by then. I will
let you know how I progress.

Back to PURE Water

Last week I changed something in my routine.
I drank decaf. tea instead of water. I had
asked and they said, "as long as it is decaf.
it can replace water." Well, it didn't work!
Not only did I not loose, I gained .9 (nine
tenths)of a pound. I am switching back to
pure water. The tea is the only thing that
changed, so I have to think it had something
to do with my results. I guess we will see
next week if water is better than tea.
Until then...

-3.7 This Week

Vacation wasn't so bad. We had a good time
digging for diamonds even though we didn't
find anything, and I had a great weight loss.
I was able to take everything I needed with
me (or stop and get it on the way)and stay
"in the box" the whole time. We were able
to cook in the room and enjoyed our meals
together, then go out and "play" for
exercise. Sean and I took a walk each night
after supper and one night we all went swimming
for about an hour. I have decided as long as
I can heat my entree, everything else is not
so hard. I have found the "steamers" veggies
at Wal-Mart that cook in the microwave and
right now there are sooooo many fresh fruits
to choose from.
My weight loss total to date is 57.4 pounds in
19 weeks. Until next week...

-2 This week

Several HMR classes will be meeting this afternoon and tonight
because of the Holiday midweek. So, I decided to get my weigh
in and food purchasing done early and not get tangled in the
traffic this afternoon. I was happy to see that I have dropped
another 2 pounds this week - bringing my total to 53.9 so far.
As soon as my class is over tonight I will be leaving on vacation.
I will spend a couple of days with the folks helping in the
garden. Then Sean, Kerry and I will leave Thursday for Murfreesboro
to dig up big diamonds (I hope). I figure it like this - eight
year old boy, dirt, shovels, and a water park next door - it won't
be boring even if we don't find a diamond. I just keep hoping
HMR and vacation mix well. I was able to get a motel room with
a kitchenette so I can fix what I need to eat. And from the looks
of the town on the Internet, the restaurant selection may lack a
little to be desired. Sean has decided, just in case, he will
pack some mac and cheese and ramon noodles. The kid could live
for months on those two staples. I will be anxious to get back
to see how the weighloss has gone and I will let you all know
then. Have a GREAT 4th of July!!!
