Dave Starting Weight on Journey:      330 pounds

 Kathleen Starting Weight on Journey 260 pounds

FIRST WEEK EVALUATION:

Effects of change in food:
* I seem to be hipper all of the time.  Almost like when I was on a high dose of prednisone.  I am not sure what is causing it.
*Dave is getting headaches and unable to sleep well. Fawn will be reevaluating his food to make sure he is getting enough.
* I am very sore from exercise!  I have starting taking more pain pills.  I am worried about my back and neck.

Good things that happened:
* We cleaned out our house of all the bad foods and replaced it with good.
*Since that first day I have not had any Splenda- and certainly no chocolate!  I am not having any withdrawal symptoms.  This is huge!  In the past I would have shaking, crying jags and be  lightheaded!
* Dave has had no diet pop at all!!
*We have been able to stick to food plan easily and everyone in the family loves the food!
*Our family is eating meals together and talking and sharing like we have not done in a long time.
*We got calls for shows that gave us money to replace the groceries.  They called on Thursday and Friday for Sunday.  That does not normally happen...God is blessing us for making the right choices.
* Dave and I are taking walks and spending time sharing our hearts with each other.  We are becoming a team working together!  It is awesome!

*Kathleen is taking less pain pills.  I am down to taking only one pill a day!  This is the first time in years I have been able to do that.

*My  underwear are getting big!  I had to go buy the next smaller size!  Yeah!!!

You wanted pictures you got it! It has been a good week for both of us. Here are our new pictures!!!


Merry Christmas everyone! Dave and I have lost a total of 158 pounds!  We have alot to be thankful for!

Isn't he soo handsome.  Remember he  lost more only because he started 6 months before me!  we have both lost about the same since we joined Fawn. He has lost 56 pounds and I have lost 52 pounds!  It works guys...all you have to do is stick with it!

Dave has gone from a size 46-48 pants to a 40 waist.  His size 42 jeans I just bought for him are too big on him already!  Good thing I got them for only $5.00/pair!

I can fit into jean sizes I have not fit in since 14 years ago!
I have gone from a size 24-26 to a size 18!
We are determined to stick with it and finish the fight. God has amazing things planned for us! We are waiting to see what they are. Please pray that when the time comes we will know it and be ready!
