BRRRRRRRRRRRRR and My Diet Excitement Abounds!

My goodness!

Who opened up the heavens and dropped all this ice on the ground?

I let Jackie and Josie out this morning.  They tried and tried to BITE the ice, but could not.  Josie tried digging a hole in it, but could not.  They gave up and decided to run around in a hundred circles!  I let them in about 30 minutes later, and they had ice hanging from their chins!

Do NOT feel sorry for them!  They wanted to go BACK OUTSIDE!

And I haven't told you, have I, about my new diet?

My friend Nancy just happened to sell the stuff, but I already was interested in it.  I was afraid it would taste disgusting -- like Ensure -- but she assured me it was delicious.  

I was afraid it would be sickening sweet, but she assured me it wasn't that either.

So HERE is the deal!

I started last Friday about 11:00 a.m. with my very first shake.  Nancy and I each had one.  I ran into my bathroom real fast before I started drinking mine and I weighed.

I weighed 154.8 pounds.

You may recall that it wasn't very long ago that I weighed 146 pounds.  If one doesn't really watch it, those ounces pile back up on you without you even realizing it!

This is Monday -- 3 days later because I weighed in the morning.  Here is the PROOF of what I weighed this morning WITH MY CLOTHES ON!

How AWESOME is that??????????????

I am drinking two shakes a day, and eating just one meal.  Today, I ate breakfast.  Yesterday, I ate breakfast.  Not much of one really.  Today, I just had two pieces of raisin toast.  Yesterday, I had a scrambled egg and one piece of toast.  I'm just not hungry!

My friend, Margaret, came over last night.  I invited her to come over and try a shake with me.  She keeps complaining that she has gained weight, so I thought she might want to join me in this fun way to lose weight.

WELLLLLLLLLLLL, not only did she want to join me, she brought me a gift that made it even more fun.

Check this out!!!
They are coasters that light up and keep changing colors!!!

Margaret was in my new Explorer with me a few weeks ago right after I got it.  When she got in my car, I showed her the ambient lighting inside and how you can choose one of ten colors for it to be.  I just SQUEALED every time the color changed, and Margaret laughed and laughed at me.  When she saw these coasters, she had to buy them for me.

Look here at my coffee this morning:

That was all the same cup on one coaster.  LOVE IT!  Of course, the batteries probably cost a fortune.  There are two watch-type batteries in each coaster.  We shall see.

And this morning I started the next batch of Mission Dresses (as I am calling them).  I have 23 of them to make this time.  I figure if I do at least one a day, and maybe two, I'll be done in 3 weeks.

Actually, since the roads are icy, and I can't go anywhere, I think I'll start another one right away.



  1. That's great you're dropping the pounds! What kind of shakes did you say they were?

  2. Congratulations on the weight loss! That is awesome :)

  3. Is this diet one you maintain the rest of your life?

  4. Good for you. Now if I could only lose a few. haha Love the little dresses. So cute.

  5. Congrats on the wt loss. I may get on it too. I will have a hard time finding it in Hawaii. Love the mission dresses. Is this for charity? Tell me more. I sew tshirt dresses for African girls. I bought a goat there too. Can't wait to return to CA to sew and find out what happen to my goat.
    Aloha and Mahalo for sharing
