The month is over so soon
Like it's gone before you finish a tune

Wish we could lose weight that fast
Seems like our weight wants to stay on till the last

Now the month of February is here
It only has 28 days my dears

So shorter time to lose pounds this time
So work hard and say pounds lost are mine

This month we have Sweet Valentine's Day
Have to be strong... No Candy we say

Remember...
Candy thru our Lips
Stays on our Hips

Good Morning Belle and everyone that follows

Belle - Thanks for the wonderful poem this morning. It is always a joy to read them each Thursday

Well I had a great week. I think im burning calories celebrating by doing the happy dance. I lost 3.8 lbs. I was not expecting that at all. I even made and ate Gumbo this week. I didnt exercise alot either, so I guess it was my body adjusting itself. No matter what, I will take it and celebrate.

Hope everyone is doing well. Im starting to get excited about my cruise. Its 17 weeks away all my plans are made its just wait until time to pack now.

Have a great day and a great week everyone. I will check back in this evening

Hi all!

Belle ~ oh yes Valentine's Day! I've already been eating a lot of chocolate & it shows!

I don't know what's going on with my darn scale but I had 4 different readings & I just changed the battery last week! Anyhow the one weight I got 5 times was 0.8 up from last week!

deladypilot ~ wow you're doing great!

Jan ~ you were only half as bad as me!

Have a nice weekend.

~ Jo ~

Well I think I may have gotten started losing again. Down .5 to 154. Yea!
Eating lots of raw carrots. Taste great, are very filling, and best of all take forever to digest so keep your feeling full forever. Also solves the "I need something crunchy to eat" without going to chips.

I stayed the same. I am not surprised since my grandson had his birthday this week which included chinese food and ice cream cake. I am happy to stay the same and not gain.

Congrats to the losers and stay the samers.

I weighed myself on Thursday, but forgot to post!

Well, I have lost another pound. Wish it was a little more, but perhaps slow and steady is the way to go.

Congrats to the losers and have a great week everyone.

Well for those of us in the US, how did you make out on Super Bowl Sunday? While we did not go to any parties, we did go to dinner at some friends house. I swear she cooked for an army and not just 6 people. I felt bad her having all that food and I was not eating alot. I did endulge in some steak and baked potatoe and a little cheese cake, but lord did she have food. Today im feeling sick. I just dont eat that much anymore.

Hope everyone had a great weekend

I stepped on the scale this morning and it was down. I hope I can keep it that way so I can report a loss this Thursday.

Hubby and I did great on Superbowl Sunday as we don't watch sports!

You know, you'd think spreading out a 6000 calorie pizza over a few days (birthday present to myself last week) wouldn't hurt too bad...

HAAAAAA!!! Back to it today, 198 - yuch.

Great to see all the successes, looking forward to joining that trend again here soon.

Sincerely,

The Rubber Ball (Bouncing - get it?!? Hahahahahaha - I suck)
