Mary T's Living to Lose

My husband and I were on Atkins a few years ago and we were excited about losing weight fast - of course, we didn't keep it off. In those 2.5 years, we felt sooo much better but by the end of it we were sooo tired of being deprived of our favorite foods!

Mary,
Thank you for thinking about me. The last dance class was on Tuesday but the date dance is the Saturday before Easter. I'll let you know how it goes. This Sunday the kids and I are doing a 4 to 5 mi walk with our church. By Monday I'll need a long rest. Have a good weekend!

Holy moley! You came through the weekend and racked up another pound lost? I stand in awe... I am not worthy...

As always, you're looking more and more fabulous each time I see you. So glad you were able to join us for the SACC this year... and I'm looking forward to partying down again in a couple of weeks. (Our weekend plans for this weekend still haven't been decided yet.)
