-3

Nope, not degrees like last week, pounds! In my first week on my official diet I've lost 3 pounds! Only 20 to go! LOL! I hate getting old. I used to be able to eat anything and not gain a pound. My metabolism started to slow down right around the time I stopped hairdressing and got a desk job. Imagine that! ;) Anyway this past summer I went off of a migraine preventative medicine that has one huge side effect - WEIGHT LOSS! I loved that side effect. Well the other side effect I guess it can do liver or kidney damage (I forget which one) over long term so my neurologist wanted me to stop taking it. Well I did and within a few months I gained 20 pounds and am actually more than I was when I started taking it! ICK! So Jan 2nd was the start of my diet but we are doing A Biggest Loser contest at work so the 3rd was my "Official Weigh In" day. Let's hope next week it's another negative number! ;)

Happy Thursday!

Well done my friend! You know, I always remember you saying you needed to lose that last 5 pounds and I was curious why all of a sudden you thought you needed to lose 20. Now I understand. Birth control contributed to my weight gain in my 20's but I have no excuse for why it's still there.

Hi, Pam!

Congrats on the 3 lbs., that's awesome! So much better than hurting your kidney or liver, that's just scary! Good luck and hope you win the contest!

Great job! That's more than I've lost busting my butt in 6 weeks. Care to share how you are doing it with those of us who aren't as big of a loser as you???

I think I gained what you lost! Oh well, it keeps my face a little rounder and then it's not as wrinkly!
Good job...keep up the good work.

Pam,

Hi! Thanks for the great suggestion of iron artwork, and for the e-bay link, that was so nice of you! I think those are really beautiful, definitely a possiblity! I'm sorry about your dog, it is just so hard to let go of them , isn't it? We will all be a basket case the day that Charlie goes, hopefully (knock on wood) won't be for awhile yet. Hope you have a great weekend!
