Losing Weight! -

It's that time of year when Most of us want to shed some pounds.
I noticed 3 of my girlfriends had lost weight when they showed up at our Christmas party. I envied them!

They all did something different.  One worked out like a gym rag and ate mostly sushi. She lost 36 pounds. She looks great!
I feel sorry for her husband though, because one day she came home and announced to him, she had cooked for 17 years and she was no longer  cooking for him. .  She gave him his own shelf for his food.  She mostly eats brown rice and fish...She constantly works out!  Boring!

Another girlfriend lost weight through spin classes. I know this is bad for your hips...she is always complaining her hips are sore
Looking good, but boy are her back and hips sore.

Another girlfriend went on the Dr. Donna diet
She lost 22 pounds.She also looks great! Mostly starvation diet....LOL

My husband and  have lost 10 pounds. Mostly on Dr. Donna diet and Atkins. We just ordered an Elliptical.

 We are trying hard, because we also have a trip to Hawaii in a couple of months and summer will be here....ha ha..

 Ok, here is my before picture at Christmas.. 

 I am on the right!  The other lady is the  friend who lost 36 LBS
You may recognize our mantel.

             The After:  I lost 10 pounds.

I was all decked out to go to an all woman's Birthday party.
Well...I like results, but I like food! Especially with alot of you 
posting fabulous food...Yummy!  Stay tuned!

  7. Hi! I found you at Debbie Doos. I'm a new blogger too. I know how hard it is to lose weight...especially after we reach a "certain age." Since August of 2009 I have lost 40 lbs. I have done is slowly by walking and counting calories. At times it has been torture! But I feel so much better. The biggest hurdle is ahead though...keeping the weight off. Have a great day!
