30 pounds. That's a lot of beef!

Every month, I've committed to holding something that's the amount of weight I've lost. Here was month #1. Here's month #2:



That's beef. 20 pounds of brisket, 6 pounds of t-bones, and 4 pounds of ground sirloin.
That's nasty. Raw meat makes me gag. But MORE than that...
THAT's HEAVY! My arms were burning by the time Cara snapped an in-focus picture! To think, I've been carrying that around on my butt for all these years. Ack.

People keep asking me how I'm doing it.
"You've lost 30 pounds in 8 weeks! I wanna do what you're doing! Teach me how to have the willpower you have! What's your secret??"

I always answer honestly, even though it sounds a little hokey when I say it.
I'll answer here the same way.... tomorrow.

Hi Stacy

Are you OK? You haven't blogged for like a month You don't know me but I've been reading your blog since it started and followed your antics for years now. I'm Canadian and live in Saskatchewan (the province to the west of Manitoba, I followed your journey to see Donna). I'm about 10 years older than you. I've always enjoyed reading what you have to say and I check your blog as soon as I get to work in the morning. Your weigh loss is wonderful and I wish you so much success, I am obese and hoping I will come to the right time when I'm 'ready' to do something about it. I'm missing your posts and thought maybe it was time I spoke up! Hope all is well and you've been too busy with all your new found energy to blog!
Hugs to you my friend
Cindy
