I lost 3.3 lbs this week!

When we came to the missionfield, it was really very difficult for us. For one we didn't know the language and for two we were all alone. We had no Americans to fellowship with so we fell into depression often over the first 5 years. Slowly I watched the weight pile on until I weighted a whopping 235 lbs. I was miserable.

I finally decided it was time to do something about it. So I started following the Weight Watchers Flex Point plan, and you know what, it worked. Initially I lost 60 lbs and hen life got a bit crazy and so did my diet. I eventually just pretended to be on the diet to keep from quitting but I really wasn't following it any longer.

So I'm proud to say, I have started back and I'm finishing the second half of this race this time. Here are a few pics of my progress the from first go around. Oh yea and I got my hair cut too. I had never had it this short in my life, if was a change but Johnny loved it so I did too. :0)

I am recording my weekly progress and keeping a little tracker in the bar to the right. See ya next week.


  1. You go, Tori! Wes and I have used Weight Watchers points and have lost several pounds each - he has actually lost about 20. We both got off of it for a while, and he is trying to get back to it. I got tired of watching every single thing I ate, which is why I don't eat very well for a diabetic, too. The points system works really well, as you know, and we didn't even join the program. I wish you success in the second leg of your race! :)

  2. Congratulations! You have done a great job so far! I know you will do great on the second leg of the journey!

  3. Thanks ladies. We southern folk seem to associate food with fun so you can see I was having lots of fun before. :o)

  4. Wow, Tori. Even though I don't "know" you, I am very proud of you. Way to go. Keep up the great work. You look great. I think your hair looks cute short as well. YIPPEE!!

  5. Great job Tori! Good for you!

  6. Congrats, Tori. Keep up the good work! It's difficult tying to lose weight, but God will help you...He already has!

    I thought you might like this quote I have hanging in my kitchen...."She who stuffeths, fluffeths." LOL


  7. Very cute Kristi, I like it. I have one of my fridge that says "I've worked too hard to take orders from a cookie!"

  8. HI Tori,
    You look wonderful and you should be proud of your accomplishments! It is so hard to loose weight, but so worth it! Your post has put me in a very thoughtful mood for the past few days. I lost 77lbs. a few years ago and have gained it all back plus 10. Your post has really inspired me to do it again and for good this time.
    Thank you for the inspiration.

  9. Keep up the good work!!!

  10. Congratulations! It was coming back to the States from Ukraine that led to some unexpected weight gain. In part, I think, because we were no longer walking and taking public transport everywhere. (Along with difficult transitions. . .)

  11. Hey Tori!

    I jumped here from The Sparrow's Nest. I too moved to a new place just 4 years ago, and faced with similar issues, I also put on the pounds. I'm currently doing Weight Watchers. Just being aware of what you put into your mouth all day is a huge thing! Good Luck!


Hey thanks in advance for leaving a comment, sure do appreciate it!!
