I seldom get to acknowledge I am making progress so WooHoo to me!!!!
Things are going well with my personal trainer. I have been going for 5 weeks and have not missed a day. That is a great accomplishment for me. Normally I would have given up or at least missed a day or two. Now don't get me wrong. There was one day I wanted to cancel and made the call to do so, but when I got Shana's voicemail ( my trainer) I hung up and put my big girl panties on and went as scheduled. I was proud of myself for not canceling. So, I have gotten through 5 weeks and will continue another 5 weeks. My strength has improved. I have gone up 25% in weight and have increased my reps each session. I am stronger for sure.
I signed up for a free Weight Watcher's meeting and attended this past Thursday evening. I was nervous but got along just fine. I was not going to go, but talked myself into just trying it. There was no commitment involved so why not try it? I got involved with the meeting and joined the conversation. It was nice to be in a group of others like me...all wanting to lose weight and get healthy. After the meeting I decided to join for a month and see how it goes. I didn't really understand the points system but once it was explained to me I caught on and have been doing very well with it. I have been under my points each day. Most of the food I eat has low points of none at all, so I can actually have more food than I thought.
I started a new anti-depressant at the end of October and it is doing wonders for my mood. I am much happier and have had no desire to binge. That voice I was hearing that told me to , "eat, eat' eat" has disappeared. I feel perkier and in general, good!! I no longer sleep all day and even my afternoon naps have gone down in number.
A few things have gotten off track....like my water intake. I have dropped considerably so I need to work on that this week. I had gotten to a gallon a day and now have trouble getting in 8 glasses. Gotta work harder on it.
All in all, I am making progress and it feels good!!!!!

Am I crazy or what!!!! We adopted two kittens the other day. Bella and Willow. They came from the pound but had been staying in a foster home. I saw them in the on-line photos from the pound and immediately fell in love. So, I am now back to officially being catladyx8.
It is crazy having babies in the house again. Bella is friendly but when she got home hid for several hours. Then finally in the evening, around bedtime, she came out from under the bed and looked at me as if she was saying, "Here I am. Okay, love me now." I picked her up ad put her in the bed and there she stayed all night, sleeping under the covers with me or on my pillow. All was comfy cozy until Friday morning. I found Bella in my bathroom sink pooping!!!!!!! The advertisement said they were house-trained. Yeah, trained to go in the house, not a box!!!!! Yuk!!!! Ah, but that is not the best part. DH went in and looked and asked, "Are these worms?" OMG!!!! Double yuk!!!!!!! yes, worms it was. Tons of them.
Her sister, Willow, was very shy and skittish. As soon as we let her out of the carrier she ran to the back porch where she stayed hidden for an entire day. If she came out it was only to run to another hiding place. She had previously broken her leg so I wanted to keep an eye on her, but that wasn't to happen. Then I found another poopie on the floor near the water bowl, compliments of Willow. Willow did make her way into the house yesterday and spent her day hiding in the side bedroom. Then last night she came out and started snooping around and made her way to our bedroom. During the night I found her on my nightstand and she even let me touch her for a minute.
Bella made a trip to the vet yesterday to get treated for the worms. We brought home the treatment for Willow when we can catch her. Bella has the grumblies. She growls at everyone yet is friendly and loving towards us. I guess it will all take some getting used to. Willow is just cautious.
