If you have visited my blog before, you may notice something new. I have a new banner at the top, chronicling my weight loss. I am not using this service, to tell you the truth. I am going through a doctor supervised weight loss program near where I live. It's the kind of diet where you drink special shakes and slowly ramp up your exercise.
The rewards are high: in 10 days I have lost 7.8 pounds. But the temptations are high too. I went grocery shopping for my family today and by the time I was home I was nearly in tears. In that whole store there was nothing I could eat or drink - except diet soda - for the next five weeks. How I want carbs or some real chocolate. But my husband gave me some hugs and I got over it.
Rosa is trying to lose weight too - visit her and give her some support. (And her blog gave me the idea of the weight loss banner!)
Next month is Blogtoberfest, and I'll be checking in with weight loss. I have a big conference at the beginning of Novemember and I want to look good!
