Downsizing Update {16 weeks}

Hi Friends

I've been fairly delayed on regular blog posts
I suppose January is a time to reorganize
And reevaluate life
I've stayed busy but haven't kept up with blogging
As I would have liked to

It's been 16 weeks since I started the NutriSystem Program
Here is my latest update

40.8 pounds
20 inches
2 dress sizes

Many would say that is GREAT progress
However, I'm a bit discouraged
As this past 4 weeks, I only lost 5 pounds

I know it gets harder as you go along
I just have 44.2 more pounds to go
And I have begun to struggle somewhat

This is the pile of clothes that I took out of my bedroom
Over the past couple of weeks
They are going to be donated tomorrow
I don't want the temptation to pull me from my focus

I'll keep plugging away at it
I've added exercise and am attempting to 
Tone up the 'flappy' arms and legs :)

I'm praying that the monthly expense doesn't 
Hinder me from reaching my goal

That's the update on my downsizing for now
I'll be back with a new update 
In 4 weeks

Just because I always need something to cheer my heart
Here are a couple pics of my two youngest K's
From this past Thursday

Our weather has been absolutely gorgeous
So, we have totally enjoyed
Playing outside and in the play house

"Children’s children are a crown to the aged,
    and parents are the pride of their children".
Proverbs 17:6 

I LOVE my Grandchildren and am SO very blessed
To have them in my life....

Praying you have a 
Super Week Filled with Encouraging Words



  1. You are doing great. I bet you feel better too.

  2. Your grandgirls are so cute.
    I think your progress is splendid so do not get discouraged. I was sick for 2 weeks and lost 13 pounds but not a good way to do it!

  3. Cindy,
    I am so proud of you. You have reached a wonderful place already. Celebrate the good you have done so far. You will get to your goal I know it. Just takes time. I am sure you are already feeling the benefits of losing this much weight. You keep going girl. You are doing great.

  4. I agree with Kris. Be proud of how far you've come! You're doing fantastic! To make it through Christmas without gaining is awesome. You go Cindy! You're going to make it!

  5. You've come so far with your weight loss, I hope you're feeling encouraged to keep up the good work. I'm sure you're feeling better too, so I want to encourage you not to go back, but keep going forward. Hey, 5 lbs. lost is better than 5 lbs. gained.

  6. Hi sweet friend, I love how disciplined you've been on your program. I remember with WW's, I always would hit a plateau. I'm not sure of the nutritional content of Nutrisystems meals, but one tip I would give(that I need to implement myself), is to eliminate all sugar. This is nearly impossible for me, but after reading some scientific info yesterday, there is such a strong connection to cancer that it makes me want to stop all cookies etc. I'll be praying for you in this area. I also just got the ctscan results and I think they are good, but waiting for my Dr. to call. Blessings on your day my friend.

  7. Cuties! So, you did Nutrisystem? Gotta look into that!


Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
