"You know in your own mind if you've stayed ON PLAN, so don't worry about the weigh-in.....and if you happen to not lose, if you know you were ON PLAN, then next week you're liable to get a FANTASTIC loss!!! There's no way you can…"

"Kay, I lost the bulk of my 95 pounds by 2 or 2.X each week.....and that was EXCELLENT weight loss. Most people only lose around 1 pound per week. So be ECSTATIC over 2.8!!"

Well, it's been over 2 months since I've blogged on here....shame on me! I've just been really busy. It's been 15 weeks since I got to Weight Watchers Lifetime, and I'm still going strong. I'm still going to weekly WW meetings and weighing in, but not staying for the meeting, because of my conflicting pilates class. I'm still working out at Curves and walking and taking a twice a week pilates class. My goal was 155 and at my WI on Wednesday, I weighed 151.2, and that's the lowest I've ever been… Continue

5th Week After Lifetime

Posted on February 13, 2009 at 10:46am 0 Comments

I haven't blogged for 3 weeks, so I thought I'd write a small one today. For those of you who wonder, Maintenance is not a whole lot different from being in "Lose Mode". I continue to eat healthy foods most of the time, record everything that I eat, attend weekly WW meetings (however, I haven't been actually staying for the meetings because it conflicts with my pilates class), and exercise. I still fret slightly, if I gain a little, and still feel wonderful when I lose a little. I am currently… Continue

2nd Week After Lifetime

Posted on January 23, 2009 at 3:02pm 4 Comments

I decided to continue to go to Weight Watchers every Wednesday night, since I lost my job 2 weeks ago. I figured that since my routine was messed up and I was home a lot, I didn't want to stop eating the same way I had been eating the whole time I was losing. my Wednesday night WW meeting, I weighed exactly the same as I did the week before. I'm staying around 20 points per day and eating about half of my weekly flex points. I'm doing some kind of exercise almost every… Continue

First Week after Lifetime

Posted on January 14, 2009 at 11:06pm 4 Comments

and I lost 95.4 pounds. I'm down 3 pounds from my goal (which was the top of my healthy weight range).

Since I lost my job last week and I'm at home now and no longer on my regular daily routine, I decided that I would continue to go to my weekly WW meeting and just act the same way I did when I was losing. Besides, I wanted to lose another 5, 10 or perhaps even 15 more pounds after I hit my goal.

I've been doing really well at home, too, not eating junk. So… Continue

The Good News and the Bad

OK....Good News FIRST! I made Weight Watchers Lifetime last night!!!!! It took me 68 weeks to get to goal, plus 6 maintenance weeks = 74 weeks to get to Lifetime......94 pounds lost!!! Yayyyyyyy!

Now the Bad News! I lost my job on Tuesday morning, the day before I made Lifetime. :(

My company has been struggling since we lost a bunch of contracts last May from our largest customer, and we've all been talking about it for months. We've seen the handwriting on the wall,… Continue

Hello Bonnie. I pop in here off and on throughout the day. I'm "working" real hard. ha ha.
Nice to meet you!

Good Morning Bonnie!

I was wondering if you are caging your veggies? You are growing some things that take a lot of ground space, so caging them might bring you better results. I will use cages on my tomatoes this year for sure...big mistake not doing that last year...and careful not to over water...another problem last summer!! Of course, in containers you may need to water more than I do...not sure but I bet your local garden center can answer your questions about that one!! I rely on mine A LOT!!

Also, wanted to ask you where the template for Roni's food log is at...I would like to try that too....

Oh thanks, I will be looking for that, I want to start posting all my food here...seems to help others with accountability!

I just wanted to say how proud I am of you! You are such an inspiration for me to keep with it! CONGRATS! And have to say I love your pictures and royal blue is definitely your color!!

Awwwww....thank you Alisha! I probably mostly looked good in royal blue because I was holding my granson, Jax! (And actually that outfit was lighter and purple, but it came out looking royal blue in the picture :) )

I saw your coconut cream pie recipe, and I must admit, I'm intrigued. Had I not just made a pie, I'd be tempted to try it right away!
