Highest Weight 252
Starting Weight(May 5th 2003) 252
Starting Weight for 2004 216.5
Last Week 195
Current Weight 194
Long Term Goal Weight 100

Total loss for 2003 35.5 pounds

So I lost another pound this week! I am very pleased, and surprised! YEAH! That brings the total weight loss up to 58 pounds! Oh yeah, I am getting to close to the 60 pounds off mark it isn't funny! Could be with in 2 weeks!

I would just really like to lose 4 pounds in May. I hope I do. That would bring me down to 190 for our trip.

I hope every one else has as great a weigh in day as me!

WOW did a ton today! I hope every one likes it. I just love it!

I asked Chatter Bug, for a copy of the html for the progress chart. And I just love how they came out. Please click on Complete Progress Chart as well. I really like how it came out

Whew really took me a while to dig around for as many weigh ins as I could find. I wish I would have been writing them down in my tangible places each week. I still have more some where, I will dig up later, probably tomorrow. But, I am happy with things right now. I just love it!

One more day till weigh in! Although I am thinking I probably won't lose. It gets slow this part of the month every month. Awe well. We will see, maybe I will be in for a surprise.
I put in a new shout box, so that I don't get the pop up that comes with tag board now. I just wish I could control both the smilies and the back ground color both. LOL It only wants to let me have one or the other!

Soon I will add a comments feature. And today I will probably be adding a chart some time of my progress.

The web ring is up and running now. And already have a member. :) I think it will be a good one.

I've been working on a team of mice, that I have named "Wise Mice". I think they are so cute. I will probably put them up for grabs soon for others. I have been trying to think of different messages for them to say, that are motivating to weight loss. I would like to make a little Richard Simmons too. And maybe even a Dr. Phil. lol

Any way I still have a lot I want to do with my blog, like add some goals, and progress report charts. I will be working on that soon. For now I think I do have most if not all my graphics how I want them. Now I just have to work on getting the archives to match. They will come along slowly though. I do wish I would have been writing down my weight loss weekly some where permanent so I could make a chart each week since I started but it's just here and there, and only really kept well weekly since January. But, oh well I still want to make a chart.

Today I made mock fried cat fish. Using Pam in a skillet. It was really really good. This was my first time cooking fish I think. I have cooked crab legs, and shrimp many times. But I have to admit at home the fish is usually from a can or vacuum packed bag already cooked. When I was growing up my uncles used to fish a lot, and my grandma was the one who always cooked it. Then we had a grocery store where if you bought the fish from their fish counter, they would cook it for you. Any way you asked. You could choose up to 3 things they would put on it for you for free, then you could pay extra after that. I always chose Mrs. Dash, butter or lemon juice (depending if I was dieting or not.) and bread crumbs (again depending on if I was dieting or not. lol). They would cook it really fast in a convection oven, and then seal it really nicely in a tin foil box. And you could go home and eat it right away. And since it was free for them to do that, why mess up my kitchen, and learn to cook it in the first place. lol So I just always did that. So I have never cooked fish before. Although I knew from experience you didn't need to cook it for long. So I think it came out real well.

Remember my weigh ins are on Thursdays, so for sure come and check on my blog on those days. :)

I'm still perfecting things. I made a ring surf ring, for sisters with weight loss journals/blogs to join. I hope we can be as successful as blog sisters. But, I can't seem to get the ring to work very well right now. I should have it working today though.

I'm staying on track with every thing else though. And I plan on adding a lot more features to my blog for inspiration to keep on track, and fun things to stay on track.

April 24, 2004

Well, as you can see I'm still working on my blog. And doing lots of updates. Stay tuned for much, much, much more.

Please, if you have any linkies for your weight loss blogs, I would love to add them to my weight loss buddies, linkies.

I'm thinking about making a JW weight loss blog ring. I wonder if there will be much of a response. I will probably wait a few weeks and see.

So I lost a half a pound this week. I'm fine with that. As long as it's in the right direction! :)

April 20, 2004

Well, if you haven't noticed I'm working on changing the looks of my blog. It will take a few more weeks. But, it will get there. :) Hope you like it.

Even though I can't exercise yet, cause of my bruised kidney, I went to Curves today to get weighed in and measured. I have lost 21 pounds since I joined at the end of December! So I'm pretty happy about that!

April 19, 2004

I think I should start by stating my newest weight. I really need to keep that updated in here.

195.5

So that's 56.5 pounds gone gone gone!

I'm still going. I don't know exactly what all I want to add to my journal. But, I know I want to change some things around and update it a bit. I will be working on that soon. For one thing I will definitely be adding some pictures.

I finally did get my Mastercook at Sam's club it was only 15 dollars. And I think I will really like it, once I get time to use it. I can't wait to get started.

Any way keep checking up in here, and you will see some updates soon, hopefully!

Well, I actually remembered to come back today.

I went to Office Max, and they didn't have any Mastercooks, I also went to circuit City. I ended up just buying a 10 dollar program called custom Cook Book, don't get it! I can't get it to show up in the program list, plus it does nothing that the box leads you to believe it does. Like it said you could take this health quiz and it would plan out a meal plan and exercise plan especially for you. Well, that was such a lie! The health quiz is very very vague. Couldn't be customized at all! And then after you take it it doesn't give you a meal plan or exercise plan customized. It only says, exercise 3 times a week for 30 minutes. Uh I knew that! Oh and the customized meal plan, eat meat, veggies, fruit and whole grains. Hmmmmmm, so customized, there! That was all it said, not how much, not what kind.... nothing. I was expecting it to say something like Breakfast-apple, 1 cup cherrios, lunch ham sandwich, etc. Exercise, bike ride 30 minutes on Tuesday. ect. There was nothing like that at all! Any way, I will still look for Mastercook! lol Just a heads up on that other program though, it's all lies. lol hahaha

I will probably go to Best Buy tomorrow though and look for Mastercook. And I also need to go grocery shopping for some cheese. BTW, I love Lite Laughing Cow cheese, it's great, and I get to have one a day and not even count it cause it's only 35 calories! MMMMM I like to have a triangle with my dates or pear. Yum yum. Also I bought some little squares of laughing cow that is only 10 cals a square, sometimes I will just have one square on one reduced fat Ritz cracker and that's pretty good too! I also love Skinny Cow ice cream, my newest two favorites are Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, and Strawberry Cheesecake. MMMMMMM MM MMM. lol They also have a bit of fiber, not as much as weight watchers ice creams, but there is a bit in there. So that's a added benefit.

I'm starting to get excited about going to Silver Dollar City next month. I will be back later though and say more about it. Bye for now.
