The Incredible Shrinking Woman

OK. That's a slight exaggeration, but after 9 weeks, I've dropped 12.6 pounds. Not quite a stone, Jo, but I'm getting there.

I hesitate to mention this, since I figure it's the kiss o' death, and I'll start packin' on the pounds again. Fingers crossed, I can stick with it. My clothes sure are fitting a lot better, I tell you.

Now, go find something that weighs 12+ pounds and pick it up. Yep. That's how much dead-weight I've shed since the end of January. Woo-hoo!

Remember the good ole days when most everyone smoked and thought nothing of it? A good cigarette could soothe the savage beast and often took the place of that second doughnut or tenth bon-bon. I wish we could urge the Surgeon General to reconsider her/his stance on smoking and at least admit that it really curbs an appetite. And weren't those TV ads for cigarettes wonderful? Right now, I'd walk two miles for a Camel. Anyway, congratulations on the weight loss, cuz. Keep up the good work!

Good for you, Mary! You've inspired me to try to shed a few (more than a few) before summer.

That's fantastic! Betcha didn't do it on a diet of grits either... Keep it up. I need to do the same, total of about 15 lb.

Great going, Mary. Keep it up (or, rather, off)!
