Drum roll please.....

Twelve point one pounds.  Yep.  12.1 lbs lost for the month of May.  That is freaking unbelievable.  Now... I think part of it was that I was on that blood pressure medicine that was making me hold water, but also.... A calorie is not a calorie to my body. I swear my body is an expert at converting sugars to fat on my body, but prefers to burn consumed fats especially, and protein.  I have not been very hungry, but I eat and I eat wisely for my body. I have tons of energy, and I have been consistently losing the pounds.  Most days for the last few weeks being daily drops on the scale - the most I have ever seen in my entire life.   It is truly remarkable.  That means I am 22.7 pounds down since April 3rd.  That's about 7 more pounds than I even Dreamed of reaching.

And my first real non scale victory. The shorts I bought for yard work to make it through the summer?  I can pull them down easily without undoing the button or zipper.  I'll keep them and belt them for gardening, but I just got those 4 weeks ago! If I have time, tomorrow I'll take measurements, but I might not have time until Wednesday as I teach tomorrow morning and the Monday and Tuesday my son has college orientation.


  1. Well done! I am so excited for you. You have definitely found the strategies that work for you, and it sounds like you're happy enough with these habits to keep them forever. I'm actually a bit jealous. ;) Congrats!

  2. This is such wonderful news. You are inspiring me, although I don't feel that I can do much about it with all of the craziness in my life right now. It is so good to see that sane, reasonable changes DO work!
