Ninth Weigh-In

I've lost 25 lbs!  TWENTY FIVE FREAKIN' POUNDS!  Now I know better than anyone that I still have a long way to go but we're talking about 25 POUNDS!!!!!  I could literally dance around the house all day singing 25 lbs to the tune of the "I told you so" song from Will & Grace if I didn't have to work.  I want to just keep saying it over and over again.  Twenty five pounds.  HOLY CRAP-TASTIC TOAST MONKEYS!!!!

So I will admit it, I cheated and weighed on Thursday at the gym and it said I was down 4 lbs and I thought "well yeah but it's a different scale so there might be some variation due to that".  Then I weighed last night, on my own scale, immediately after dinner just for the fun of it because I couldn't stand the wait and it said I was down 3 lbs so I thought "well that's great, I just ate so 4 lbs will probably be spot on".  Oh no ... no, no, no, no.  FIVE AND A HALF POUNDS SPANK ME VERY MUCH!

I'm having a Jim Carey moment ... I need to back away slowly from the keyboard before I break it with all of my excited typing.  WELCOME to all the new followers, by the way.  I am delighted to see all of you: Anne, Mandy, Suzi, Ariel, Eve, Bayla, Carin, Chic Mom, Jannie, Strega (love the name btw), Teresa, and Roxie.  Welcome, welcome one and all and thank you all for your interest in this blog.  If you would like me to add your blog to my PR list on the left side of this screen please reply to this post letting me know. ^_^.

  6. Swan: sorry dear you followed after I wrote the post for yesterday. I tend to write them in the morning and then just add food and activity in the evening. I am aware of Allen's blog, I don't read it anymore but I know he trashes me. I don't mind; he's just bitter because I rejected him.

    Suzi: I will add you to the PR list right now.

    Thank you all for the congrats and support! I feel awesome today. I didn't go walking last night because "Temptation" had the car but I am planning on going tonight and indulging in a tanning session as a reward. :)

  7. p.s. to Suzi, as it turns out you were already in the PR list. :) I removed a few blogs just now from it because the owners hadn't posted something new in the last 10 months.

    p.s. to Swan, WELCOME to the blog. I certainly hope your chosen name doesn't imply that you think you're an ugly duckling because you, my dear, are far from it. In fact, you've got very lovely eyes judging by your profile pic.

  8. congrats on a fantastic week, and being 25 pounds closer to your goal. I've just started with this whole blogging thing and its encouraging to read other people's stories, add me to your list if you'd like, and keep up the amazing work!

  9. Whoa good job !! If I could lose 25 lbs I would be just as happy !!!
