60 Pounds Gone!!!! No Calorie Blog Candy

Can you believe it? Since I started my weight loss journey back in June 2008 to date I have lost a total of 60 pounds!!! Sometimes it is just so hard for me to wrap my head around that!
WOW!!!!
For a chance to win this no calorie candy post a comment to this post. Just share your thoughts on my success, or comment on your own victory over the battle of the bulge. I know some of my readers are also losing weight.
Candy includes: Two stamp sets from See-De's, brads, heart shape pins, white gift bags, fabric Valentine stickers, gift bag made from Top Note Die, and not show but will be included is 12 white and cream Top Note shapes so you can make your own bags, or to use in your card projects.
Winner will be drawn at random on my next weigh in day which will be Thursday the 22nd. So be sure to check back at 7 est on this day to see if you are a winner!
*******************************************************************

Correct guess on why I purchased the Fruit stamp set by Pam was won by Connie. I love the Beatles and included in that stamp set is a word stamp that reads Strawberry Fields. Congrats Connie. There will be a little surprise coming your way soon.

Going to go visit mom this afternoon. Hubby is going with me, then we are going to the Road House for dinner. Still cold here and snowing!!!

Someone wanted to know how long the icicle was. Well hubby is 6' 1" and the icicle came up to his next when we stood it up on the floor next to him. That will give you an idea on how long it was.

Hi Karen, well done on the weight loss. When I met my second husband, he weighed 23 stone, at his heaviest he was 27 stone. We married after eleven months and he then weighed 22 stone. He had been living by himself for ten years and not eating correctly. I got him down to 19 stone and then he stuck. So I made another push, using portion control and eating healthily. He now weighs 15 stone and has been so for a year now; so I will need to have another push. He should weigh 13 stone. He has been big all his life. I am so happy being his wife that I want to keep him, so I have been a live in dietian. Pauline. UK.

Congrats for losing the weight. I start next week. I has WLS and have gained back some weight after having breast cancer and going to do what they call 5 day pouch test. So I'm hoping to start losing those pounds myself again. Good luck to you

Mountainrose said...

Wow.. what hard work you have done to lose so much weight. I sure bet a lot of crafting is in those hours as well. Congratulatons on a job well, well done. My own ongoing fight of the bulge will never cease. As for the Strawberry stamp... cause you were thinking of strawberries at the time you picked it up?

Debby said...

Way to go Karen! I have also been battling the battle of the bulge. I lost 70 pounds and have gained 20of it back, so I need to get on the stick again and behave with my eating. I want to lose another 50 and I will be at the weight I want to be. When the snow is gone I can start walking again. Have no exercise equipment so I have to do it the old fashioned way. LOL
Angel hugs

Just joined RubberRoadAdventures and was cruising around looking through the designers and came upon you, checked out your blog and had to go back to look at your picture. You look AWESOME! And CONGRATS on your weight loss! I just joined a weight loss challange in our town this week. About 40 lbs need to come off.

Congratulations on your weight loss. Christmas is always my worst time as I do a lot of baking for gifts and have a sweet tooth. Ugly combination when watching your weight. I just bought some slimfast optima to try to push the weight loss along. Again Congrats!
