New Facebook Page, Biggest Loser & Life Updates

Hey all! I created a new Facebook page to share new recipes!  Like me on Facebook!  That just sounds funny, now doesn't it?  Also, if you have any questions or need anything, feel free to email me at newbeautifulme@gmail.com

I have been on Medifst for 4 months and have lost 60 lbs!


Biggest Loser Week 1 Results
I lost 4.6 lbs the first week with a total percentage of weight loss of 1.81%.  This puts me in 2nd place for week 1, but I am confident I will pull into first.  The 1st place person has 2.04% weight loss.

Life Updates
Life is really going good lately.  My husband and I have been looking for a church since we moved back to Colorado a year ago and finally found a church we are calling home!  That is a big relief and a huge blessing because now we have lots of new people to get to know.  This does raise some interesting situations around food, given my special diet, but I am just focusing on being open and honest about my eating habits.  It is just awkward to have to explain to a hostess why you pretty much only eat grilled meat and salad.

If I haven't mentioned before, I have the most wonderful husband in the entire world.  He is working on losing weight too.  He is doing very well counting calories and staying within his caloric weight loss zone.  He has lost 25 lbs in 3 months on his own.  That is an average of 2 lbs a week, which is right on track!  Great job honey!!

Here is a picture of me and Shane at Thanksgiving:
And yes, I have a hand sticking out of my head!!

Hey Sandy! I was wondering where you have been :) Colorado Springs is a very nice city! I am about an hour north of Colorado Springs, but have family down there.

Congratulations on your weight loss and WAY TO GO for your husband! Being on Medifast I always feel sorry for those that are trying to lose weight on their own. I know MF is not for everyone, but it's so much easier when I compare them to past diet experiences!

Love your blog and so glad you found a church. I've found that if I let people know about my diet and explain it to them, they really try to help...well, at least the folks at church help! Ha! I know others who love to waive food under my nose and say, "awww, it won't hurt to have one piece of cake! Come on!"
