One Week mark..

So today we got up early to go to the "Place of Weight Loss" and have our first official weight in..
I had weighed at home but our scales are off..
I lost 5 lbs and the hub lost...

ELEVEN pounds!! Go R!

Now we go on the "official diet" as what we were doing before was kinda preping our bodies...

We have the rest of today as lean meats and veggies so we made a reservation at
B Christophers tonight, Steak and salad here we come!!

Friday's Funnies

One Sunday, in counting the money in the weekly offering, the pastor of a small church found a pink envelope containing $1000. It happened again the next week. The following Sunday, he watched as the offering was collected and saw a little old lady put the distinctive pink envelope in the plate. This went on for weeks until the pastor,
overcome by curiosity, approached her.

"Ma'am, I couldn't help but notice that you put $1,000 a week in the collection plate," he stated.

"Why yes," she replied, "every week my son sends me money, and I give some of it to the church."

The pastor replied, "That's wonderful, how much does he send you?"

The old lady said, "$10,000 a week."

The pastor was amazed. "Your son is very successful; what does he do for a living?"

"He is a veterinarian," she answered.

"That is an honorable profession," the pastor said. "Where does he practice?"

The old lady said proudly, "In Nevada. He has two cat houses in Las Vegas and one in Reno."

Mid Week


We have had 4 days of only being able to eat this or that, intertwined with HNS shakes and or coffees..
The hub not me... the coffee SUCKS..
Now we have 3 days of lean meats and green veggies.. (All we can eat I might add!!!)
Not sure how this going to help me lose weight...

and a freakin quarter...

The hub and I have been wanting for some time to lose weight. No, this isn't about a New Years resolution, I didn't make one.
(figured I never kept any of the others why waste the effort!)
Anyway, the hub's son M started a diet last May and has virtually lost a whole person..
Due to his modesty and not wanting to jinx himself, he wouldn't tell us were he has going. no matter how we begged. Well this last Christmas he finally told us.
No I am not telling you...
at least not yet..
Anyway we had our first meeting with "B" yesterday. We asked questions, reviewed charts, looked at hour health records and such. We asked a shit load of questions..
(took 3 hours of "B"'s time)
We signed up..
So not the fun part... measurements..I won't gross you out with those details but we can all say, "It wasn't pretty"!
Then.(hear scary music here)
THE SCALES (echo, echo, echo)
I weighted 205.25
205 is bad enough but to have to go and throw in the POINT 2 5.... Gotta little salt there to shove in that wound!
Anyway, as we knew portions, amounts were fixing to be limited, (and some things forbidden right now) We promptly left the "Place of weight loss" and went next door to Subway.
Another irony..
Subway next to the "place of weight loss"....
