Calories Burned: 2201
Calories Consumed: 1426
Calorie Deficit: 775

Good ole blogger still will not let me upload pics. Wonder what the problem is? Is it just me? I did okay fine on food yesterday except I had Fried Zucchini. It was as many calories as my salad with the dressing. Sheesh.

Yesterday a friend of mine (Sherry) emailed and asked about another friend of ours Debbie O. She said that she had not heard from Debbie in awhile and was a bit concerned. She asked me if I knew what was going on with her and I told her I had not been in contact with her lately. I haven't seen her since her daughter Lesley's graduation in the summer. I gave Sherry her current contact info so she could touch bases. Well... later in the day I happened to pop onto Facebook and Lesley's status said "God please tell me that the the surgery will find out what it is and that everything will be okay, and that she will get better. I love you mommy, more than anything" I called Lesley right away and she told me that they think Debbie might have Cancer. She has a collapsed lung and will be going in for a biopsy on Thursday. I did get a chance to talk to Debbie and we cried and I told her that I am sorry for being such a sh*tty friend. She said "You know Kate, don't sweat that small stuff, I know you would be there for me in a heartbeat" and she is right. If you are a person of faith I would really appreciate any prayers for her.

Then... Dave and I met for a bite to eat and we were talking about a meeting he had gone to earlier in the day and he quoted one of the steps and was explaining an example of the step and as he was telling me I got an email from a dear friend and she quoted the SAME step! I was in total shock! Coincidence? I don't think so... What do you think? Until next time...


  1. Katie, you had a 700 calorie deficit! That will flush a pound away every 5 days! Keep it going Lady!

    Good job.


  2. your poor friend.....my heart breaks as so many people are suffering with Cancer with the moment- its such a huge disease and so scary.

    You did well on the calories side...
    You burned a hell of a lot of calories....x

  3. Hi Katie,

    I'm sorry to hear your friend is going through this...please let us know how it turns out. She'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

    I don't mean to be nosy, but is Dave going to AA? When you mentioned steps, I figured he must be. (or could be NA, OA) The steps are amazing tools! What step was he talking about? Wow, I really am nosy, but AA and step work and recovery are what I'm all about! Besides a ton of other stuff, tee hee. Hope all is well. Nice going on the calorie deficit. Fried zukes sound great.

  4. Sorry to hear about your friend, I'll keep her in my prayers.

  5. Great job on the calorie deficit. I barely burned up enough calories today to make up for the cake I ate last night ;)

    I will definitely keep your friend in my prayers. I hope she hears good news soon.

    Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back to catch up on your journey. Keep up the good work.

  6. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. I hope everything works out for the best.

  7. Katie, I'm sorry to hear about your friend. I hope things turn out well for her. It sounds like you have a wonderful friend!

    Terrific job on the 775 calorie deficit! That is simply amazing! Exercise is definitely not my strong point! Way to go!

  8. So sorry about your friend. I wish I could learn not to sweat the small stuff.

    There is no such things as coincidence. It was ment to happen that way. I love it when I can see His tender mercies.

  9. Thinking of you and your friend...

  10. It sounds like a tough time for your friend. Hope there is a good outcome.

  11. Sorry about your friend - I hope she will be ok. It's interesting about both of your coincidences, which are signs that a higher power is at work here...

  12. Great Deficit-sorry about your friend-hope all goes well.

  13. Oh, Katie, your friend will be in my thoughts and prayers. sigh

    Good job getting that body bugg on! Great deficit!

  14. Katie, I'm sorry to hear about your friend. I will definitely keep her & her family in prayer. Thank you for checking in on me as well. I don't quite know why I've been so disconnected from blogging lately, but I think I'll be getting back on track very soon.
    I've been consumed with all the stuff with Brent. And....he came home on the 3rd so we've been doing tons of errands, going to meetings every day, getting his driver's license, & job hunting all the while trying to juggle life and my job. My happy face is on and we're getting back into our old groove of life.
    We got up at 430 this morning and went out running together. It was great to have a running partner.
    How are things with you? Are you totally loving your new place?

  15. Great deficit! Good job. And who can resist zucchini? Lol! I had some today but thank goodness I was no where that I could get it fried.

    Prayers are with your friend!

  16. I am sorry to hear about your friend. I'll keep you guys in my prayers.

    Great job on the calories!

  17. prayers prayers her way.
