Last Post

This is going to be my last post for a little while. I'll be back, if things go well, in about eight or nine days. (It isn't that I'm not committed to my diet, but simply won't be near a computer for most of the time.)

Thank you to all who've sent well wishes and prayers for my father.

I will remain absolutely committed to sticking to my diet, making good choices, and even drinking more water! I'm even taking a few books with me on health/diet-related topics to keep me company, during the down times I'll be sitting at Dad's bedside, watching him rest.

I expect good reports from everyone, when I get back online! :)

And I'm going to put this in writing - I WILL lose weight this upcoming week, even if just a half pound. There, I said it. And I meant it.

One of my girlfriends said it isn't likely, and I'm setting unrealistic expectations of myself. I'll be doing a lot of sitting, a lot of waiting, a lot of eating whatever is provided.

She's wrong.

Where there is a will, a determination, there is a way to make it happen.

So, I'm putting it in writing - I WILL lose weight this upcoming week.

Be good! I'll catch up when I return.


  1. I have no doubt that you can have a loss next week!

  2. So sorry to hear - you and your family are in my prayers! ♥

  3. I know exactly what you are going through. It isn't easy and I wasn't prepared for the food challenges. I believe your determination will see you through. Hurry back. You will need us more than you know. Even if things DON'T go well with the eating,we will be here to support you. Whatever happens, come back to your blog!

  4. You can do it.
    I'm so sorry about your Dad and wish the best for both of you!
    Hurry back! :)

  5. I'll be thinking about you and your family!

  6. My thoughts are with you and your father.

  7. Be safe and see ya soon! I'll be focusing some positive energy your way. I know that sounds kooky, but its worked before!

  9. Ann, You are in my prayers and thoughts. You will do well.
