Afternoon: Before I even talk about my weight I have some
very important news... MY GRANDDAUGHTER IS HERE!!! I didn't dare
mention it before because I was so afraid it wasn't really going to happen
but my son took her from Mississippi to Maine!!! Oh, I can't even
begin to tell you how completely thrilled we are to have her. She
arrived on Monday the 23rd and is here until Tuesday, December 1st.
How I'm ever going to let her go is beyond me!!! These are the very
first pics from when I picked them up at the airport. There will
be many more pics coming as soon as I set up her gallery.
November 18, Wednesday Night: This was a good Wednesday for me! Not only did I lose 2.25 pounds, but that got me the title of Biggest Loser at my TOPS chapter for this week! And I also won a random drawing and got a $10 gift certificate for Kohl's.... how sweet is that! And I attended our TOPS workshop and I got 3rd place in the top 15 losers for our county. I lost 12.5 pounds since the last workshop which was 2 months ago. Our next workshop is in 4 months and our chapter is hosting it so I hope I come in the top three for that workshop too! I'm going to do my best :o) I also had 5 losses in a row and now our chapter gives you a charm for every 5 week block that you lose weight. I love little incentives like that. TOPS ROCKS! And I'm very, very close to losing 40 pounds and that means I'll have to take more pics to add to my before and after gallery! And soon I'll be in the 250s! I can't wait to break the 250 mark and be in the 240s. When I started this blog I was not quite 300 pounds but at one time I did see 306 on my scale, so getting to the 250s will be a real treat for me. I'm FINALLY starting to feel a tiny bit lighter. I still have a long way to go, but getting off my butt is a bit easier.

Afternoon: I can't believe I never came to post my latest
loss. I guess I must be getting bored with losing weight... naw!
Can't ever get sick of that! I'm only 3 pounds away from my next
set of weight loss photos. I hope I see a bit more difference this
time. At least my hair is different. It's sort of short and
shaggy and nearly black. Now that I think of it, it looks very much
like the picture of David Cassidy I have in the column on the right!
Like this! I guess I must be looking at this picture too much!
That is just too funny! I'll have to take a picture of my hair and
we can compare to see who is cuter, me or David!
November 4, Wednesday Night: I lost again! I love it! My new eating plan is working! I'm doing wraps. Wraps, wraps and more wraps! I've been eating veggie wraps for 3 weeks now. And I'm not even close to being sick of it. I get all my wrap ingredients ready on Thursday and they last me through until the following Wed when I get weighed. Then I go out and buy more wrap stuff and start all over again! I have a wrap for each meal with a nice hot cup of broth. Any time I'm hungry I make a wrap. I'm always full and I'm losing weight. No complaints from me!
