My own horn, of course.

The scale showed a loss today. 6.2 lbs! I am so psyched. Of course, it's still likely a lot of water weight (I hope it is a lot of water weight!) and I don't expect to ever see a loss this big in one week again. (I sort of hope I don't. I'm 45. My skin needs time to adjust.)

But it is oh so gratifying--and just what I need to start Week three.

And I need to know: Why have I not had a peach in years? I'm having one for breakfast right now--and, yes, they were horribly expensive. But I have let that STOP me for years--and years. I hardly ever ate fruit--no wonder. All I bought were apples and sometimes, bananas. That's no way to live.

Hooray for peaches!

Alana, as the summer comes on, try to buy things in season. Often they are the cheapest and the tastiest.

I agree with you about the peaches. Yummy. Even if produce is high I try to remind myself how long I purchased $3 packages of cookies or chips without hesitation.

Oh, peach season. It's the best thing about living in the south.

Congratulations on your loss! That's the best feeling in the world, of course you should toot your own horn!

Thank you, everyone. :o :D

And when is proper peach season?

06-08-2009, 02:02 PM
I love peaches too! Here in Colorado, we start getting peaches in about a month. Probably different in the south.

Good job, btw!

Atta girl!!! THAT'S the way to do it. Just keep on doing it and doing it and doing it. You can toot yourself all the way to goal.........

I got peaches today for 99 cents a pound. They're just coming into season.

And isn't it amazing, when you get rid of "those foods", you get to replace them with MUCH, MUCH, MUCH better ones. Who knew? What a pity I didn't get that together years and years ago. Oh well. No time like the present and the future. :)

Peaches just started showing up here too, and the height of the season lasts through the summer, so prices should come down a little towards the end of the month, if the crop was decent this year.

Hey, you don't have to toot your own horn.... that's what we are for!

Congratulations on a REALLY NICE loss there, Alana and I have no doubt at all we will be tooting for you a lot in the future!
