-2.8 pounds this week

WOO HOO!!! Finally a good week. This
week also marked the 7th week in a
row I have lost weight. I want to
keep that up for several more weeks.
So, with this weeks loss, I have lost
24.7 pounds of the 30 that Brad and I
have been battling to see who could
loose first. I only need to loose
5.3 more to win!!! For those of
you interested in the grand total to
date...104.9. Wow, writing that
down is amazing to me. I do still
want to loose about 60 more however.
I am so thankful for all the support
I get from those of you who read this
blog and from my many friends and
family members that cheer me on daily.
I am in better health now than I have
ever been in because I am eatting right
and exercising regularly. I feel better
now than I have in so long I can't
even remember. I have energy, I take
less medication, and I feel good.
Until next week - God bless you all.

Down a Little

I lost 0.7 this week bringing my total
weight loss to date to 102.1 pounds. I
am hoping to pick up the pace this week
and actually loose over one pound. In
fact 2-4 pounds would be nice. I hope
you all enjoyed the picture posting. I'm
not sure how much you can tell in the
ones I chose. But for the record, I
was measured again at the weightloss center
and I have lost 17 1/2 inches around my
waist alone. Anyway, please keep me in
your prayers as I continue this journey.

Okay, okay, okay! So many of you have asked/suggested
that I post before and now pictures that I had to go
find some. You notice I did not say before and after
because I am not done yet. I had to look hard for the
before picture, as it seems I tried to stay out of
pictures. they are.

Another slow week

I lost 0.6 pounds this week. This brings my
over all total to 101.4 pounds. I would like
to pick up the pace again and loose over 1
pound per week. I actually need to do that
because the program I am on has a 4 week
weight loss minimum and I need to pick up
the pace to stay on target.

On a brighter note, I only need to loose 8.8
more pounds to win the contest between Brad
and myself. Brad, however, turned in some
impressive weight loss numbers last week.
Check him out at

If anyone has any suggestions for getting over
the hump and boosting the weight loss please
share. Thanks for all your support.

1/2 Pound this week

I only lost a 1/2 pound this week, but the bright
side of this story is this is the 4th week in a row
that I have shown a weight loss. It has been a
while since I have lost 4 weeks in a row. Maybe
I am getting on a roll. I don't really have any big
news this week...Like I could top last week. So,
I will make this short and sweet by asking for your
continued prayer and support. Thanks!

I have officially lost my 100th pound! I am pretty
excited. I stayed "in the box" over the Christmas
holidays and continued with my exercise plan and
it worked. I traveled over the holidays and was
a little apprehensive about how the eatting and
workouts would go, but it all went just fine. I was
able to workout at the Curves in Pocahontas one
day and the Curves in Branson, MO two days. The
other days I either walked outside, or workout with
a DVD.
For all of you who are wondering about the little
wager between my friend Brad and myself, well
with the -1.3 this week I now only have 9.9 pounds
to go until Brad has to by me a CD. That is unless
he wins :( Hey Brad, how is it going?
For those of you who may not know Brad, he is the
inspiration for this new way of life I have decided to
adopt. Brad started a little over a year ago on the
same plan I am on now with phenomenal results. So,
I was talking to him about it one day and he said,
"Debbie, I know there are diabetic patients who are
doing this program. You should call them." Well, I
thought about that for a while, then I called. And the
rest, as they say... Now 10 months and 1 week later
I have lost 100 pounds. Thanks Brad for the inspiration
and all the encouragement.
