I Lost 20

Isn't that exciting? Of course I am talking about pounds, not dollars. Nader and I have been following a healthier eating and exercise program since early January.
I was not expecting to lose that much so far, but I am really happy with the results. Who knows how much more weight I will shed by Leanne's wedding? I already can't wear some of my old clothes because they don't fit anymore. I have never been so excited to get rid of clothes before.Even Nader is doing well. He has lost 12 pounds and is really happy to change the notch in his belt 3 places over. He said this doesn't feel like a diet because he is not hungry. Well, it seems to work for us!
We went for a walk on Saturday to enjoy the sunshine. I have had a cold nearly a week already, and we wanted to have some fresh air. It was so nice to be in the sun!! Today it is foggy and snowing again. So much for spring weather.
Hopefully the weather will be better for the weekend. I'm going to Kelowna with the youth group for a big youth conference. It will be a blast! I'm trying not to think of how we behaved as youth on these kind of trips...I think it was hard for the leaders to deal with us! Maybe God will have mercy on me. Pray that we will have a great weekend and that God will touch the hearts of our teens. And that my cold will be better by then.

Love, Nicole
