Weight Progress—February 10 (That's It?)

Here's where I was a week ago:

Net weight loss: 30.5

Pounds left to goal: 34

Here's this week's stats:

Net weight loss: 31.5
Pounds left to goal: 33

It's lonely. That measly little pound is really lonely. It desperately needs others to join it. It's true I did eat out what (for me) was a lot this week. That means I went out to lunch once and out to dinner twice. However, except for that potato soup I had to have, I thought I made pretty good choices.

I knew it was going to happen, though. I will confess that, even though I know you're not supposed to, I weigh myself almost every day. And there's usually a pattern. After my weigh-in day, my weight goes up a couple of pounds for the next two days, stands firm for one or two days and then in the last one or two days, it goes down enough to make me end up with some weight loss for the week. I guess as long as I end up with something to show for it at the end of the week I should be happy. The thing is, I'm getting impatient. I'm simply running out of time.

However, I did find someone this week who will alter my dress in three weeks. That means that I can wait to take it in until April 7 and still feel really comfortable about getting it back in time to leave for Key West. That's really good news. So, I'll keep plugging away and hope for the best.

And now for the fat picture of the week. (Not a picture of me in Key West, for the first time, but a picture of me in Comins.) Yes, this is me fumbling through trying to dance. I really need more practice before my reception. This one's for you, Don Green!

This photo could very well turn out to be a pulitzer winner. So now its not only back to the weight loss clinic it's off to the dance studio. We might turn out to be another Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers....Who knows. 94 days left. I know how tou feel. Three weeks of Chantix and the smoke is still rolling.
