Hi Melanie,

I love it when my rings are spinning on me. It's such a great feeling.

I know what you are saying about the water and frequent bathroom trips too. I drive my co-workers crazy sometimes by often visiting the bathroom during the day. I do try to limit my water consumption at work, but I still seem to go a lot.

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs, Jenna

I was a little bummed tonight when the scale didn't move. Then I remembered the ear of corn I had on Friday night with dinner.

That ear of corn will get us every time. You know how to get it done so no worries, the scale will be behave itself.

Have a good Monday Melanie!

It sounds soooo weird to be saying " enjoying the last days of summer!" Where does the time go? The clothing stores all have Fall clothes out, surprised Christmas stuff isn't out already!

Enjoy your day swimming, soooo relaxing!

Jenna, Maggie, Jayce, Danielle and Cassidy~ Thanks!!!
Cassidy~ Mell Bell.

So yesterday was a fun day. The girls, me and my mother in law went to our local fair and walked around all day. The girls rode rides. I didn't have one bad fair eat at all. We ate lunch before we left and I took my water bottle and almonds to snack on!!! The kids had a sno cone and a few of mil's french fries. Then last night there was a concert at the same fair and it was free and since we had already paid to get in once we went back for the concert after eating dinner. Didn't have one thing to eat, DD5 had a small cup of ice cream as we were leaving. Then you would have thought we were torturing her when we decided to walk to the car instead of take the shuttle. I'm sure she was getting tired, but it wasn't like we walked 3 miles, it was probably a half mile. Woke up and the scale rewarded me again!!! 193.2 down 1.2 overnight!!!

Today we are going to head out to the pool for a little bit. Its a gorgeous day!!!

Thanks girls.

Whooshing right on down!!!! Went to ZUMBA last night and had a kick butt workout!!!! Jumping jacks are awesome!!! After doing three sets of them in one song I am always ready to die, but they sure do help the scale move along!!! Woke up this morning and I was rewarded with another 1.2 loss!!! Down to 192, 69 lbs lost so far!!!! I am one lb away from being just overweight and not obese!!!!

Not much going on tonight. My uncle who has been home visiting for the past month is leaving tomorrow so we are going out to dinner. Luckily we are going to my favorite place that has the best salad bar!!! Can't wait!!!

Have a great day!!!

Hi Melanie,

You are truly amazing. I am so happy for you that your scale is just dropping and dropping and dropping. That is wonderful!

Isn't it crazy to look back on old pictures and see the great difference between then and now? I think you have always been very pretty, but WOW. You have come so far.

I had to laugh because I got my new haircut the other day and the day that I got it, after it was styled, it looked almost exactly how your hair looks in your avatar. Unfortunately, as time has passed, my fine hair texture has caused it to droop a bit, but it still somewhat resembles yours. Twins!

Have a great Saturday, Melanie.

Hugs, Jenna

Faithful~ Yes it is....

Jenna~ Thank you. I have always felt good about myself big or now, but I really feel good now!! How cool that your hair looked like mine. Have you tried products to give yourself more volume? I use one, I will have to check and let you know. Its for fine hair.

Danielle~ Thanks. I feel so great now. Glad you had a good dinner out.

Jayce~ Thanks, it just amazes me so much.

The scale surprised me this morning..... I was actually still in deep ketosis and down 1 lb at 191.4 .4 away from just being overweight I thought I might have went up a bit. Yesterday I had training and a prepared lunch. They had pasta and meatballs, I skipped the pasta but did have meatballs, figured the breadcrumbs wouldn't kill me, a piece of chicken, and a salad. Not too bad.... Felt good about my choices. Then last night we went to a picnic at our neighbors house and they had nothing we could eat. Thank goodness we had taken a cheesy chicken dip. So I had that with maybe 3 tortilla chips, a few strawberries. Then later on a girl was walking around with jello shots, she came to me and I declined but asked if they were sugar free, she said I think the strawberry ones are. I said no I will pass, she insisted that they she was sure the strawberry ones were, finally I just took one.... It was very small but I was sure it would affect me, it didn't thank goodness.
