Feeling Lighter!

That best describes how I am feeling as of today. Lighter! Albeit 16 pounds is a far cry from the total I need to lose, I really truly feel the difference. Then I thought of something I had told a friend when they lost 20 pounds. I told them when is the last time you walked into the produce section and held up 2 - 10lb bags of potatoes? OMG! I know how much a 10 pound bag weighs because I just bought one the other day. Having said that, I can relate to why I feel lighter and it feels great!!

Now then, the holidays are quickly approaching. There is a lot of chatter among those of us trying to drop weight on how we are going to handle it. I say, enjoy your holiDAY and don't make it a holiWEEK.  Maybe plan now for a really special treat you would like to have on Christmas, plan for your calories and go for it. Everybody has their own way of getting through the holidays, just know this, it will be here and gone before we know it.

Cheers to you on your weight loss. Keep pushing forward and have a great weekend friends.


  1. So proud of you!!! Awesome job girlie!!! I'm sure you do feel lighter....who wants to pack a sack of taters around all the time? Isn't that amazing what we've put our bodies through. It's no wonder we've been tuckered out by the end of each day.

    How did you put the MFP goodie on your page?

  2. Thanks for your support! You have no idea how much it means to me.

    As for the MFP MFP click on the TOOLS toolbar. Then, scroll down toward the bottom and you will see "Weight Loss Badges for Your Blog". I love this. I took my ticker down because I realized I was not going to be able to lose 14 pounds by Christmas, and I am okay with that. But I didnt want to be reminded of it everytime I came to my blog. Im weird hahha.
