Karen,

You are a true inspiration!! Keep working hard and staying strong. Before you know it you'll be in the 100's, can't wait for you to reach that goal!!! Get ready to go shopping again for new clothes. So much for stamp money, you need to save your money for clothes. LOL Love, Kat

Oh, Karen! I'm so excited for you!! I've been slowly losing a little only by just eating less! No calorie counting or measuring. Just eat until you are full and don't eat until you are hungry. Just a few ounces here and there but it added up to 5 pounds in a couple of months! That puts me only 15 pounds off my weight 20 years ago. With a little exercise more should come off. Hope your weather cooperates too!

Congrats Karen on your continued weight loss!! That is so amazing. I really need to get serious about weight loss again. I was doing Weight Watchers at home by myself for almost a year..and I "fell off the wagon" at Christmas time..and haven't been able to get back to it..ugghhh..such a constant struggle.

Keep up the good work!

Wow Karen! 70 lbs. That is fabulous! Do you know what 70 lbs. looks like? Go to the meat dept in your local grocery store and just add up the weight of 70 lbs of meat! That is amazing! Kudos to you girl! It is such a battle to lose that kind of weight and you should be so proud that you have done it! I found you through Jackie at Just Stamp it,
shortwizard dot blogspot dot com.
Good luck on your final goal, what ever that may be and thanks for the opportunity to win blog candy!

Mary said...

70 pounds gone! Congratulations! That is great - a lot of hard work to get there. When i first found your blog, i loved that you signed off with your current weight. i have checked your blog not only to see your great creations, but to see how your weight loss journey is progressing. You are an incredible inspiration. I also appreciate you're from OH, which i am a bit further north in fairview park - near Archivers, Pat Catans, and Joann's and can get to Hollo's and Hobby Lobby within half an hour! How can you beat the location?!?! Congratulations again on your milemarker - 70 - and look forward to seeing you under the 200 mark - i'm sure you'll get there!! You've come so far already! Good Luck!

Tonya said...

Karen,

CONGRATULATIONS! Yes I was shouting because your accomplishment should be shouted from the rooftops. I just started WW last week (need to lose 115 lbs) and I am struggling without any family support so I know how important encouraging words are.

Keep up the healthy habits and before long, I will be back here shouting about even more weight loss for you.

I would love to see some before and after photos.

Linda said...
