June 11th weigh-in results (video) & a quick update

Friday, June 11, 2010

Today I weighed in on one of those fancy smancy talking scales emoticon.

previous weight: 272.6 lbs
current weight: 269.4 lbs
loss for the week: 3.2 lbs emoticon


Hey everyone - I realize I've been MIA for the past few weeks (or so). But I have A LOT going on here on the home front.

As some of you may know my dad recently had a stroke (last Thursday). Thankfully he's doing better now. So I want to thank all of you that kept him (& our family) in your thoughts and/or prayers. The well wishes were greatly appreciated. (I'm sorry I haven't had time to respond to comments, goodies or sparkmail - but once things normalize around here I most definitely will)

    emoticon on your emoticon weight loss! And that was with all the stress you've been going through. You are really motivated.
I'm glad that your father's feeling better. I know how scary that was.
Try to enjoy your weekend.

    Congrats on your weight loss! You are on fire! I loved your list of things you're "done with". I especially loved your wanting to be a good role model for your girls. My mom was heavy and somehow it seemed OK for me to be heavy, too. You are showing them how to eat right, exercise & live a healthier, happier life. You are a gift to them, my friend!

I hope your dad's getting better.

Keep up the great work..even though it's hard with all the "stuff" going on. Hang in there!
