Monday's Note, 5-14-12


Greg and I with baby Andrea - today is her Birthday!

Happy Monday!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day ... I got my mom all to myself for a couple of hours on Saturday evening ... we watched Carol Burnet Bloopers and just cracked up together ... sooo sweet!  How did you celebrate?

Here's my favorite quote of the week:
Normally for me, Mother's Day is "open season" for a big bar-b-que with all the fixings.....but not this year! We ate sensibly and enjoyed the day with one of our kids without over-doing it at the table. Feels good to not be so stuffed you can't sleep or plagued with indigestion! 
I weighed in this morning.....four weeks ago I tipped the scales at 371...this morning I weighed in at 339, 32 pounds in a month...I can't believe it, but I know it's true based on how loose some of my clothes are fitting now. I'd love to be at or below 320 by surgery day ... and continue losing from there. 
I can't thank you enough for helping me see this happen...I really doubted whether the motivation to change would ever come back. I felt stuck and needed something to really rock me ... Thanks for reaching out with the tools and the encouragement to help!  The little blender is great..thanks! The shakes come out even better! My second order just came on Thursday...I'm trying out some new meals...I'll give you an update on the chilli and the chocolate chip brownies! Thanks again!  

Favorite Recipe of the week:
 Cauliflower Pizza Crust - this is by far the very best pizza I've ever had!!!

Thank you for your business and the priviledge of coaching you on this chosen journey to wellness.  I know this is simple, but not always easy.  When someone says, “Wow!  You are looking great!  How are you doing it?”  Please reply, “I have Polly, my Take Shape for Life Health Coach.  She is willing to help you too, give her a call … or better yet, can I give her your e-mail or number?”  If you are coaching with Greg, just tell them we work as a team and are willing to help them!  Polly.
