-10 total pounds

Holidays are nasty for dieters, but I'm down 2 more pounds.. for a total of 10#. Mandy is down 10# and John is down 30+... I have to weigh Wendell yet this morning..

**Update: Wendell has weighed in and there is NO change with his weight. Blood sugars are running nearly normal however, and that's a good thing.
We shall be going to the pool after Christmas. This should give him the exercise he needs to begin losing.

I'm status quo.. no gains no losses at the moment. I need the pool to exercise to get those pounds to leave. The good news is that though the scales do not reflect a change, my clothes do, and so does the measuring tape.. I'll report on that on Monday.. weigh in day.

Having some difficulty with Wendell's diet. He seems to be on the gain, but then, he nearly lost his pants on Wednesday.. indicating to me that he's got a loss in the belly. I think he looks like it too. His blood sugars are more often normal than not, so I know the diet is helping. The scales say he gained 10#, but I either didn't weigh him correctly, or they are wrong, or he's lost fat and gained muscle.. I don't know what the answer is, but we will continue the program anyway.

With the extra day of work and the necessity to get laundry and errands taken care of this week, I've missed the YMCA. Wendell didn't get his start, but we plan to do that this coming week. One step at a time, one day at a time.. we can't lose.
Pray we will be able to do all of this.
