Thanks my friends



Today was a weigh in day and I am very happy to report: I lost 2 lbs!!! My total weight loss since the beginning of December when I began (again) has been 5.8lbs. I am very proud and I know it is only because all of you are keeping me motivated. Thanks so much for being supportive and listening and suggesting and everything.
I am determined to keep it coming off so let's keep going.
I am too tired to blog any more but I will end with this quote:
So long as we are loved by others I should say that we are almost indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend.
- Robert Louis Stevenson

PS If you click on the cartoon you can see the whole thing. I, being the medical person that I am, cannot figure out how to format it to fit the screen. Enjoy.

I was at the grocery store and was dying to buy ice cream and I didn't. You were my inspiration. Unfortunately, I ate some food when I was home that reminded me that I do indeed like food very very much and now I want MORE of it. Grr. :)

Z, YOU CAN DO THIS!!! I am proud you did not buy the ice cream. Keep reminding yourself that as much as you like food, you LOVE having clothes that are too big.

SK, that's awesome! I love the cartoon.
I wasn't so good these past couple days, but I am going to try very hard over this weekend. Being in a bathing suit may be a good motivator :)

Great job Sarah,
Keep up the good work. Kevin and I are both ttying to lose weight together. We'll see what happens. It's hard though, when you are making a cake for a kiddush and there is the yummy part at the bottom of the pan that is left over...

When that happens to me, I try very hard to take one small bite or lick of the batter or whatever it is and the quickly run it to the sink, douse it in soap and fill it to the brim with water. Its a lot less appetizing that way.

Well here goes the non-techie who takes 3 weeks just to get ahold of a computer so that I can view your blog. Sarah, I'm very impressed...keep up your focus and motivation...and you've always looked great! Although if you want me to personally check it out, I hear that Spirit has $9 tickets? Or is that really old news? Well, I think SaraK has the right idea...why don't YALL join her? I hear that going through security at the airport burns 36 calories per hour. Keep it up guys; it was great to "be back in Queens" for a few minutes. Wishing you much hatzlachah! The Wolf

Sarah I am so happy to hear the news, there should be more losses and you should continue to see progress. I have been a bit better myself (salad with talapia yesterday, but then I broke down and had wacky mac for dinner, alas) and it is definitely due to you.
