Hitting Forty is a Delight

Well I can't believe I have not been here in over a week. I have been very busy with my classes and it doesn't seem possible to hang out online unless I am working with my class. The online class is time consuming, but I think it is going well. My on campus class is great. Between meetings, time spent online, and homelife, well...not here as often. I did manage to catch up on some of my favorites. What creative and delightful friends I have here online!

I lost .8 pounds last week and another .6 pounds today. That makes me a rounded off 40 pounds! It has slowed down and I am really tired of these specific numbers, but I am down 40 pounds over the past 17 weeks! Nothing difficult this week, just cruising on the ice at this time. Keeping my eye on the things I tend to do that might be a problem down the road. Like eating too large a lunch. Dinner is never a problem but I tend to eat a big lunch. I won't be able to do that when I get down to a reasonable weight (right now I can eat much more than shorter, people who have less to lose can eat).

 Hair growing and looking a bit better (although today it didn't look all that great LOL Wind and rain will do that).

40 pounds is a great weight loss. I started taking Alli yesterday and am going to give it a month and see how it goes. I don't have a problem eating low fat so I think it will work well for me. We'll see.
