Day 169




OK I have come to the conclusion that if my weight would come off as fast as the weeks went by then I would be good. Since that is not the case I am reporting a repeat of last week. A loss of .9 pounds. If you have been following me you know that this is normal for me. Not that I agree with the normal.

Sunshine Mama has talked about blizzards from Dairy Queen and she knows that I am a no go on Diary Queen until I move back to the states in 2012. She wanted to see some pictures of some goodies that we get here so here are some from last summer. The ice cream shop has been closed all winter and just now opened but I haven't been down there yet. The owner speaks no English so I won't go without Chris which makes it better on my hips!! Getting him to go is like pulling teeth.

This one strawberry...



This one had strawberries and peaches....



This one is blueberry....



They all come with fresh fruit so does count? To date I have never eaten a whole one. I have always had to split it with Chris.

.9 pounds = .4 kg's..thats for me to understand, is a little for the amount of work you put in this week. (Ivone from group lost 1.8kg's this week = 4lbs ) and all she has changed is..RUNNING INTO HER WALK EVERY MORNING.
I'm telling you as soon as the sun shines and you can get out to run the weight is going to fall off you.
Running does amazing things for the body that no gym class can do..and I'm talking from experience as a gym class teacher for over 20 years...my body changed when I started running, I wish I knew this when I was your age...

I personal would not touch any of those ice creams and the top is filled with fresh cream, but they do look pretty and therefore very tempting...I bowl with 2 scoops of ice cream with fruit will do for me.
Have a great Easter weekend...not sure if you alone or if Chris is with you????
I'm waiting for Heinz to get home...been 5 long days ALONE!!

That. Looks. Heavenly!!! Ha, Ha! Wow...why did I ask for you to post that? But that is SO pretty to look at. It certainly looks like Germany can do well in the ice cream department. Ok, you talked me into it, I'm coming over.

I love your quote. It's so true. And with as moody as I've been feeling lately, I need to remember that. My mantra to get myself to work out has always been, "Don't think, just do!" The more you think about it, the more likely you'll talk yourself out of it.

Good job on the drop btw. I agree with you about time flying by though. LOL! excpet when you're pregnant, it definitely seems to slow down.

Sorry Marcelle but I have to disagree with you :)

Yes running helps you lose weight, it helped me lose the weight I've lost but no more than 1.1 lbs max a week.

I think you have to learn to accept that you are a slow weight loser, just like me. But do start that running because it helps and it's great for your body.

Wow I'm not even a dessert person and that looks YUMMY! I know it's frusterating but just keep on working hard and you'll be good!

OK. You proved me wrong. Some German treats do look good enough to eat!

I couldn't agree more!

Always have to remember 1 pound a week is 52 pounds in a year. The time is going to go by if you choose do something or nothing- this is the advice I always give myself when I'm feeling down. Then I have smack myself for being such a know-it-all.
