I received some wonderful news today when I went to my doctor appointment –


Incredible! Especially since I’m currently taking 15 mg of prednisone. Wow. I’m beyond happy about this. And, if I keep doing what I’ve been doing, I should continue to lose more weight (says my doctor). The last time I was weighed there was about three weeks ago. I’m so ecstatic and relieved that my “dieting” and tracking calories is finally starting to pay off. Maybe my metabolism isn’t dead after all?

Well, I just wanted to write a quick post to share with you all my good news. I’m going up north early tomorrow morning for an annual family event and I’m really looking forward to that. However I know there will be a lot of bad food temptations there this weekend and I’ll have to work extra hard to control myself. But I can do it, right? The temperature is also supposed to be in the 90s with high humidity again. Ugh. Maybe it will be too hot to eat. Ha.

Happy weekend!

  1. I’m doing the same thing. Would you mind emailing me to tell me how many calories you are eating in order to lose weight. I’ve found conflicting numbers out there.


  2. I had been eating 1250-1500 calories a day, approx. Although I‘ve been traveling in Europe for the last two weeks and my “diet” has been completely thrown out the window. ha. Although I‘m still losing weight from all of the walking and exercise and no snacking, basically. Good luck!! It‘s not easy, I know. How‘s your progress going?
