Susan's Weight Loss Journey

Wednesday, November 15, 2006


My husband found this old picture of me on a computer he was trying to revive. I don't think I've seen it until now. I weighed at least 244 in this picture. SCARY!! It sure is good motivation to maintain my loss!

My good friend, Amy (amysmithr on the NS boards) stayed up all night working on this, so I thought I'd share because it's TOO COOL! Thanks, Amy!

What a summer!!

Wow, August is a day and a half away and the summer has flown by, as usual. This summer, though, was maybe a little more stressful than most. Let's see, I've moved across the state from a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house to a 2 bedroom condo, got a new job, and started treatment for breast cancer.

I did, however, get a chance to be a princess for a few days last week in New York City and it made everything else just melt away for a little while. I got to spend 3 days with some wonderful friends and really got the royal treatment, limos and all!

Because these 5 other women and I have helped each other maintain our weightlosses, the magazine First wanted to do a story on us so they invited us to NY for a photo shoot. It was SO MUCH FUN! Here are a few pics from the shoot and also with some friends. It was great to see not only the five from the shoot (Amy, Tracie, Emily, Sharon, and Brenda) but I also got to see some other fun NS buddies.

I'll treasure the memories of this trip for a long long time! It'll give me something to think about while they're zapping me with radiation this week :-)

Yummy Dessert!

I made this yummy dessert last night. All it is is Sugar Free/Fat Free Cheesecake flavored pudding, but I crunched up 1/2 of a graham cracker and put that in the bottom of the bowl first, then I cooked up some blueberries with Splenda and let that cool and used that as topping. Delish!

My return trip to Six Flags Great America

A couple of years ago when I went to Six Flags to take my chorus and orchestra for a competition, I had to get off a rollercoaster after waiting in line because the safety harness wouldn't latch because of the size of my thighs and abdomen. I just got back from taking my kids this year and not only did the thing latch - it was on the smallest setting!

Here are pictures of my chorus, my chamber orchestra group (pink shirts) and me in the Superman Roller Coaster Seat!

My kids played their hearts out and my chorus surprised me by wearing pink ribbons on their concert t-shirts for the performance. I was just in tears. What fantastic kids!!!
