The one about the diet update

Giant Microbes just announced their new releases. Fat Cell is one of them. He's a cute little thing. He ain't in real life, though.
I have officially lost 20 pounds! I am 1/3 of the way there. I was measured and weighed at
Contours again yesterday and while there is progress, it is still very slow. I have found that after weeks of honest dieting with no results, cheating is often the way to get that body to let go of a few pounds. whatever.

I bought myself a present for the 20 pound mark! Artwork from Nancy Baumiller. When I showed my kids what I had purchased, they just rolled their eyes.

This guy is still with us, unfortunately. Savannah had a relapse last night and was throwing up again. Weird little bug.

hooray for YOU!
I know how you have worked so hard...it gets FRUSTRATING, but slow and steady wins the race...AND, I think a more gradual loss (for us any way) means lifestyle changes that are actually "do-able"

I am proud of you and I love your 20 pound reward!!

Congratulations on your success!! It is so hard to lose weight because you are dealing with so many areas of your life (activity, self-control, addictions, long held habits, etc.) at the same time. And it is hard to change just one thing at a time! I am so proud of you for just sticking to it! Although, I am a firm believer in if you crave something desperately, you better have it because the longer you deny it, when you finally do break down, it will be a lot uglier ;-) Or maybe that's just me.... Hang in there and most of all: be patient, you're doing great!
