Week 43...

I lost 3 pounds last week.  NICE!!  My man has stayed the same weight.  Slightly Frustrating!!  But at least it's not a gain!  He will get losing again.  I know he will... and he's already lost so much and beside that, he's just so hot!

We went to a Christmas party last night where dinner was being catered.  There was rich soups, breads, veggies, thick brownies and creme brulee.  Did we falter?  Did we pig out? Not on your britches!  I called ahead and inquired about the menu and we decided to have our "lean" before going and then had our "green" aka salad there.  We brought our own "dessert" (knox blox) as well.  And it turned out fabulous.  I didn't even worry or think about the food because there was a plan in place.  And today I was rewarded with a 3 pound loss and a super hot man.  Good thing he's hot because I am always a Popsicle these days!  Brrrrrrr... never been this cold so much of the time before!.  It has me dreaming of sitting in a hot tub like all the time.

Today I got the name of my blogger buddy for the 12 Days of Christmas!!  She is the gal over at "The Fat Mom Blog".  I've been having fun reading her blog and sharing info. via email so we can get to know each other.  I even went shopping today and have some great ideas.  So fun!

congratulations on this huge loss! 3 pounds so far along in the game is amazing! You inspire me. (I'm so glad your blog is shoing up on my rader again!)

I didn't get back to your last post, but it seems like you're on an upswing, so I'm going to let that be.

Just know that no mater how it feels, you are loved by more than God--although, as we both know, He is more than enough. :)

congrats and great job!

3 pounds is AWESOME! I always love reading how people overcome eating challenges like holiday parties. Way to go, you two hit it out of the ball park.

Congratulations on handling the dinner so well! You guys are in control, that is for sure!!

I like those 3 lb losses best, so I'm celebrating your loss this week!! Congratulations on that too!!

So, your husband is hot, and you are always cold? I'm going to start referring to the two of you as "Sizzle & Shake" ...

hehehe

Keep up the good work (but I hardly need to tell YOU that), and soon we'll all be able to brag that we are friends of that really hot-looking couple, Sizzle & Shake.

Enjoy your week!
