Onto the weight loss issue. Since having changed when I eat my big meal (breakfast) and how I eat (June 2012), I have now officially "shrunk" three sizes. My size 10 pants are too big, and the size 8s are comfortable. I hope to plateau at some point. I can't afford new clothes. I don't have any size 6s in the closet.
I'm excited because I am shrinking into the clothes I have. I have now dumped 20 lbs. However, I am now at the weight I was when I had my heart attack. 20 more, tough ones, to go! I may not HAVE to buy new clothes for my trip in November.

Wow, you are now 2 daschunds, or one beagle minus 3 lbs, or 4 Patrons lighter! Way to go, PF!! (No heart attack).

He gets excited to see me, because he knows where all the treats are hidden... When he's really clingy I put him in my shirt and he snuggles down to sleep.

I have so much more energy lately, I think I've finally hit the magic button for my weight loss.

I am holding at 139-141. I need to get on the ball and try to lose 20 more pounds. And I have nothing in my closet or drawers that will fit if I do lose it. I will have to rethink all of this. Or hit the lottery!

Don't weigh yourself with Patron in your shirt. Of course, you know this!

20 lbs is huge! Congarats, PF!

So Addie, you need to lose the equivalent of 4 Teddies at 5 lb each?

Thanks! I do so much better when I'm not reporting everyday. I know, but it really helps to just report milestones.
