Losing Tristan.

No, no Tristan is not going anywhere at all. I am not actually losing my sweet Tristan but I have lost 67 pounds, which is what Tristan weighs.

The weigh- in this morning was a loss of 2 more pounds. The reason I weighed in this morning is because of the glass window breaking last week that was scary for us all, but especially Tristan. It has been a long time since I have had to pick him up, and as I lifted his strong muscular frame over the glass into the safety of the house I was very much aware of how heavy he was. I struggled in supporting his weight and I can only imagine how much my knees and lower back are loving me with some of that weight gone from my body!


My Big Beautiful Boy!



Inspiration in the form of the jeans I wore last September (which were so tight I kept the top button undone)


I feel good, I am so grateful for the gifts I have been given. I am strong, and I am motivated to push hard this month, and do the very best I can. I keep telling myself the number is only part of the picture of my success, and “the whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts”. (Thank you Aristotle) there is no doubt I will get to the 100lbs, I have faith that it will happen when it’s meant to happen and until them I keep fighting the good fight.

Let’s help save some doggies!

    I’m with Moody–I quickly had to click to see the blog with my heart in my throat! But, I got your meaning once I started reading!

    Looked for you this afternoon at the Red Dog Resort–perhaps you have lost so much weight that you were invisible! lol

    So inspired by your determination, ambition, heart for others, and stick-to-it-ness. Oh, don’t forget your honesty and great writing, too.

    Way to go!!!!!!

    And see? I knew it was a good idea to keep those pants!! Even when the numbers on the scale don’t tell you anything, your clothes most certainly will!!

    And just for your information: you scared the hell out of me with that post title!!!!!

      Lol, it’s true you did know to keep the pants 😉 Sorry about the title, I didn’t realize how bad it sounded so I had to go back and edit the very first line to say that nothing happened to sweet Tristan! 😉
