Hi Everyone! This is my Weight Be Gone Thursday. If you would like to follow me in my journey you are welcome, and if you’d like to share your own journey feel free to sign my linky below, and I’ll come visit you, and read your story too! If you have a great diet recipe you would like to share I’d appreciate it very much.

The reason I’ve started my journey is I had a rude awakening to the reality of life’s threats in that if I still wanted to lead a fun, and somewhat of a meaningful happy life I had to make some serious changes.  I have Spinal Stenosis, which means my back hurts like hell.  We’ll get about that another time, but for now I’ll tell you what all the practicing physicians (I hate them practicing on me – IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE?), say to me is lose weight and your pain will go away!  YEAH… YEAH… YEAH!  Okay, I’m taking my shots, which don’t seem to be working to well lately.  Sooooooooooooooooo as I told you last week I have started the Health Club again, but not water aerobics just yet.  I’m working out on the machines.

Okay, weighed in on Monday & I was 251 and finally starting to get rid of some of the water I contained over that hot spell we had.  I’ve been working out every day this week, and yesterday I weighed in at 248.8.  Woo Hoo…. wait for it… wait for it…  PAUSE FOR DRAMATIC EFFECT……………………………
I weighed in this morning and……………………………………….  dot dah da daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa  246.4 lbs.  WOO HOO!  GOING GOING… WHAT?  I must be doing something right.  In case you’ve forgotten I weighed 281 when I started in January, and due to the pain in my back I couldn’t exercise except for the water aerobics and even that stopped for a while, but I did watch what I ate.  So I have lost… DRUM ROLL PLEASE… 34.6 lbs. so far and I think that’s pretty dam good on my own.  Could you imagine what I could do if I had one of these clubs on my side?   Oh, I’ve been considering doing Nutri-System, but I haven’t really looked into them properly yet.  I think that’ll be next week’s Post and I’ll let you know if hubby says yes or not.  Got to check all my corners.  MAMA NEEDS SOME HELP HERE!   I’m gonna make this happen I tell ya!  I cannot take anymore of this pain, and I’m tired of this dam double chin and looking like a big moose in Christmas pictures with my grandbabies!  SHEESH!  I WANNA BE MEEEEEEEEEEEEE…. I GOT TO BE MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…  I WANT TO ROCK & ROLL!

Okay, I’m calm now.  So, what do you think, huh?  Pretty good job I’d say.  Now just gotta keep it up and if I keep losing even a pound a day that will be 30 lbs by Sept 8th and that’s when our party is.  I will look much better for pictures.  WOO HOO!  I still haven’t heard from the doctor about that sleeve thing for my stomach.  I’d still like to do that, but I want to do some more research on it first.

So for supper tonight I  had Salmon, broccoli and a small salad with lite ranch dressing and a glass of skim milk.  Not bad huh?  Okay, I splurged a tad.  I love brown sugar on my salmon & a touch of lite melted margarine on it too. mmmmmmmm  

So if you would like to share your journey also sign my linky below and I’ll come visit and any other ladies that are traveling our long hard road too!  Come on ladies we got to stick together!  Hugszzzz  Any tips are much appreciated.  Thanks and have a great day!

This is a sign at our park I’ve been walking around with baby.  We usually go at 7:00 a.m. after Dave leaves because I take my walker in case I get tired (it has a seat).  Cool, huh?  Maybe some pics next week and I hope good news about  I’m going to google them and find out all about them as best I can.  Maybe even contact Nutri-System, and ask for advice.  hmmmmm.  Wish me luck!
