Ding Dong! The Blubber's Gone! (most of it)

I did it! It's been a long, slooowwww process, but this morning I weighed in and guess what? I weigh what I did on my wedding day way back in 1984!
I took the long, slow lazy way of losing weight-it only took 3 years and 3 months.
(Actually I lost 30 pounds in about 4 months, maintained for 3 years and then lost a little more....)

Now I'm debating more weight loss. It would be fun to weigh 1 pound less than I did 30 years ago, (Yikes! THIRTY YEARS?!) June 2nd when I graduated from hhhigh sssschool. Like I said, I'm debating. I haven't decided yet whether I want to buckle down and do it or not.

Anyway, for me this is a "miracle". I've battled overeating and being overweight my entire life. My prayer is that I'll now be able to apply what I've learned about losing weight to dealing with all the hidden uglies that lurk in my heart.


  1. Felicidades! (This is how they say "Congratulations" in Mexico.)
    That is so exciting! I'm so glad for you! Yay! :D :D :D :D


    PS I haven't weighed myself since I got back from the trip, but I know that I ate like a hog. I was almost constantly hungry. I guess that's what construction work and good cooking do for you!

    PSS Hey, you two are up for 25 this year, aren't you? Felicidades! :D

  2. Grats! Persistance and perserverance pays off! Woot!

  3. You look great! I'm a little jealous... I am 20lbs from my just married weight and much farther from my high school weight!

  4. Wow, Judy, what a milestone. I didn't know you were losing more! You certainly didn't need to! I've gained 5 pounds over the winter and like you, I'm deciding if I'm willing to buckle down and lose it right now. It just doesn't seem worth it right now. Sigh. We'll see! You look great, Judy!

  5. Yay for losing weight! I've lost a bit over the past year or so ... drama. Not a good weight loss plan ... but it works. But something I've discovered in losing weight is that I'm never going to be completely satisfied. A couple of years ago, I decided to be content with who I am. Sure, if I ever start gaining a bunch of weight again, I need to start to rethink some things. But let's not get caught up in losing weight! Let's be who we are in Christ ... and glorify Him. :) ... That's what I decided ... a while ago. :)
