Weight Loss Wednesday

All week I've been thinking about this post, hoping to be able to use this line from This is Spinal Tap: "The numbers go to 11." But, alas, I cannot. Because these numbers go to 12! That's right, I am down another 3 pounds to make a total of 12. I feel great. I feel cute and sassy and all the things I've been missing for a while now. Don't get me wrong, I'm still fat. But I'm 12 pounds less fat than 4 weeks ago. Booya!

The topic discussion last week was on dancing. 15 minutes of dancing adds 2 points to your daily allowance. Two points is a Weight Watchers ice cream bar. Those are good. Anyway, it got me thinking about the songs on my ipod. Most are kind of mellow (like Bing Crosby, Sarah McLaughlin, and Keane) and hard to dance to. Then I heard "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang the other day, and had to add it to my playlist. What songs get you moving? Please leave a comment and help me make a great 2-point dance list!

Way to go girl! I remember doing WW and it was great. I didn't loose as quickly as you, but once I realized I needed to add excerise with it, it really started to work! Good Job! Beth is now down 45 lbs. from the baby in Apr doing WW on her own - and running. So by Christmas, you ... Ok, so dance music, sounds like you are starting to like MY music! Ha, ha, ha!

Abba's Take A Chance on Me! Harry has observed a very good routine in the kitchen when it comes on.
