Shopping Around the World – REMINDER

Thanks to everyone for another great edition of Shopping Around the World last month.  It’s so awesome to see the various prices around the world – and the pictures with recipes!

Me and my pal Fozzie will be holding another Shopping Around the World scheduled for         Wednesday, November 25th. 

Do a posting on your blog linked back to mine.  That way we can keep track of all of the different prices and recipes.  I know this is going to be around Thanksgiving so mark your calendar so you can do a posting with us.

This month we are highlighting Thanksgiving items.  It can be an appetizer, a main course, a side dish or dessert.  FIVE items your choice of Thanksgiving.

Come join the fun of Shopping Around the World – mark your calendars – Wednesday, November 25th

Journey with Friends

Oh my friends – the overwhelming support that you have all shown me this past week has been so totally awesome!  I have been blown away by the suggestions, the wonderful comments and the encouragement.  I just know I can do this now.  And did you notice my blog heading, Journey with Friends?  It has been suggested that not only can this be a place for “ME”, it can be a place for others as well that are going down this path of better health.  Some place where we can all meet up once a week for encouragement and strength.  Please feel free to share any of your wisdom – great recipes, motto’s, encouragement, ideas, suggestions and/or your weight loss stories and goals.  Together we can do this!

Now, for my week. My first goal is to get my blood work where it needs to be.  My next blood work is scheduled at the end of January/early February.  The second goal is to lose weight and be healthier.  My ultimate weigh loss goal is 100 pounds but I’m breaking that up into smaller 25 pound goals of course four times until goal.  It’s not a race with this weight loss goal – it’s a way of life in changing my eating habits.

This past week, I made several changes in my lifestyle.  One of them was eating.  In that time, I lost 6 pounds!  I am thrilled beyond belief with that.  I also started walking more and taking care of me better.  This week I will still be concentrating on doing better with the exception of Thanksgiving Day.  Thanksgiving I will take a break and call this a no diet day 🙂

How did you do my friends?
