Hello to all my wonderful blogger friends!
You girls are just the best! Thanks for being so kind & not saying I'm a messed up cotton headed ninnymonger who has no direction in her dieting life .(Like Will Farrell said in the movie Elf) LOL!
I want to read each of your blogs and am sorry I haven't had a chance to yet but I will get there. Thanks to Dawn, Rosalie, Pattie, Kay, Katie, Beth and oh shoot I am missing one more person......oh forgive me, I just cant think of it at the moment but thank you all for your comments. :)
So I wanted to give you all an update on how things are going. I started 17DD on Friday March 1st and I am happy to report, so far so good! I have been following and am starting to find my groove with it & am liking it. as of this morning, I am down 3#. Yay!!! I am hoping to lose 10# in Cycle 1 which will end on March 17th. Most people lose between 10-15# in Cycle 1. I think if I lost 15#, I would seriously faint! My sister and I have been really struggling on WW and I talked with her on the phone on Sat and she also decided to do it with me so she is on Day 2 & was down 1# as of this morning. She and I got together on Saturday & did some prep work for the week. We made turkey chili (that might I add was fabulous!), we made protein poppers (lemon & chocolate) that are like little bite size cakes that are made with protein powder &They are really yummy and we also made the mock egg rolls for sandwiches. Shes not crazy about them but I actually like them alot. I love spending time with my sister and she is really one of my best friends. We have both come so far with our weight loss and I told her "we can do this...we can do anything for 17 days". Her birthday is March 23rd & she will be 50. She wants to be down 10# by her birthday as it will take her into a new decade of weight. She is so pretty & has a personality & a smile that is infectious.I pray that she hangs in there. I am going to continue to do my very best but need to add in that darned exercise component to get things moving but I am just so darned tired after work its the last thing I want to do. I need to start slow, maybe 5-10 mins at a time.
Well, thanks for listening. I will keep you all posted on my progress.
Hugs to you all!!
