Weigh in Wednesday's

Today was my weigh in day, was kind of worried about a possible gain as I haven't been too good the last few days. So to my suprise I lost it's only .6 pounds but hey it's better than gaining!

So that brings my grand total to 40.4 pounds lost. I still have a long way to go and I mean a long way but I figure it took me a long time to put the weigh on so I certainly can't expect it to come off quickly.

I know there are lots of things out there like programs, funky diets and even surgery to loose weight and to loose it quickly. But in the end if you haven't learned how to control your portion size and eat less and more healthly things you will just gain eveything back that you have lost. The way we are eating right now is the way we plan on eating from now on.

I am very proud of my husband first for helping me loose weight by being such a great encourager but also in his own weight loss. He has now lost 81 pounds and I couldn't be prouder of him. He is so much better at loosing weight than me. I just crave food all day especially sweets. We do buy some of the 100 calorie cookie packs and rice krispy bars (both only 2 points each) so that helps.

My next goal weight loss wise is to get to 50 pounds lost by the time Matthew leaves , which is June 1...any prayers would be appreciated.



  1. Congratulations Joann,
    I am glad you are having luck. I am such a yoyo dieter. I lose, then gain it back, then lose, etc. It gets so discouraging. Also wanted you to know that I haven't forgotten your questions on applique. Just need to find the time to sit and write out some stuff. Talk to you later, my friend. Winona

  2. You are very wise to know that diet fads won't work. I wish I could control my portions better! I'm hungry all the time.

    Good job Joann!

  3. Any loss is good...stay strong and be are doing so well..just have to stay focussed...hugs Khris

  4. Hey congrats to hubby he has done soooo well..hugs Khris
