I Have more "Sticktoitiveness" than I thought

I made it a full week!! I did both healthy eating AND blogging. Not bad for an old broad.

Naturally, everyone (all 2 of you) are waiting anxiously for the results of week one. Well, first let me tell you that my lunch yesterday was just dandy. I did not break the caloric bank, and managed to stay well under the calories that I had mentally given myself to play with. That being said, my week one results were......pretend that you are waiting with baited breath....... a whopping 7.5 pounds. I'm perfectly fine with that, too. I know what they say about the first week's weight loss. Mostly water, but ok, so I got rid of some water, can fat be far behind? I'm hopeful.

I never verbalized this before, but my biggest fear coming home from Phoenix this last time was that after having eaten Phoenix (yes, I mean the whole city), I was going to have to ask the flight attendant for a seat belt extension!! I did not, but not because I showed any self restraint while dining out in Phoenix. I ate like King Louis, if it got in my way, I mowed it down. Of course, that debauchery is what prompted this new "health kick". Good thing, too.

And now, a shout out to my beloved "Primary Child". Thanks to you I am now an international blogger!! One of your blog friends did, in fact, come to visit me here, and she is from England. For those of you wishing to join the Primary Child, his blog, Running off at the mind is also on He is almost as funny and amusing as I am.

There is sunshine here in the hinterlands, so that is making me a bit perkier. The gloomy, overcast skies really drag me down. That is my excuse for not exercising this past day or two. Today is my weights day, so hopefully I'll stick with it more than 10 min.

And now, I am off to begin week two!! Wish me luck.


  1. Congrats! That's an awesome start and who cares if it's water loss. I'm hoping your sticktoitiveness is genetic and I'll be seeing some progress soon.

  2. Congrats, I've wandered over here by way of your PC's blog. 7.5 pounds is fantastic, keep up the great work!

  3. Ohhh ohhh ooooohhhh!!! Can I be three??? (many more to come I'm sure)

    Anway, congrats on your loss! Don't downplay it as 'ohhh first week loss' and all that jazz! You lost a freakin' ton of weight! Pat yourself on the back!!!!
