2 down - 4 to go!

Just a quick update.  We had our second monthly weigh in with Dr. Simpson last night.  Ron lost 17 lbs this month!!!  I'm so proud of him.  And I have lost 3!  The doc was very happy with those results and Ron and I were ecstatic.  We were both so paranoid that we hadn't lost anything because we went so crazy over the holidays.  I don't think I've ever gone through a holiday season without putting on weight so that in itself is a victory.  Although, it's a little sad to think of how much I COULD'VE lost had I not eaten absolutely everything that was offered to me over Christmas, but I digress.  We have very little going on in this next month so the results should be even better next month.  To be honest, I'll be happy if I lose another 3.  Slow and steady wins the race after all. 

I also just want to give a quick shout out to all my new, I mean FOLLOWERS.  LOL.  It's amazing what posting your link on Amy's blog can do!  So a special thanks to Amy for the opportunity and a SUPER SPECIAL THANKS to everyone who has added me to their daily/weekly/monthly reading.  I can't imagine I have anything all that interesting to say but I'm glad you're along for the ride.  It definitely makes one feel not-so-alone in this process.
