Wednesday diet report

I lost 1 1/2 pounds this week:  I'm 166.5 pounds.  I can't wait to get below 160, but something tells me it'll be at least six weeks before that happens.  I didn't gain all this weight in a week, and I can't expect to lose it that fast.

Cliff gained 1 pound, and is pretty down-in-the-dumps about it.  Two days ago he hopped on the scales and weighed 248; today, the scales registered 253.  Hmmm, must be the cheap scales.  Anyway, he's wearing two sizes smaller clothes (he's gone from size 48 overalls to size 44, and they're loose now), his cholesterol is great, and today his blood pressure reading was 131 over 70.

awww sorry Cliff is in the dumps about the one pound..  it all sounds great to me!!  He should be proud of all he's done already, even if it stopped right now!  But I don't think he or you are done yet.. boy, must be nice !!

have a great day.. chin up Cliff!

Wow you are doing great. I just lost a few pounds due to the bronchitis. Makes me a little below 160. That is my usual weight but is too much being 5' 3". Keep up the good work. Paula

that's great with your weight loss! Slow and steady will keep it off over the long term. Hoping Cliff shows a good loss next week. My weight fluctuates so much sometimes. Its good to measure progress other ways, too, like he is doing; how his clothes fit and blood pressue. Awesome work for the both of you.

You both should be very proud of yourselves!  At least you and Cliff are on the buddy system which certainly makes preparing the meals a lot easier~

Congrats on your loss, Donna! :)
