Wow! It has been six weeks of unreliable computer usage. I haven't missed it that much and have been mentally counting my calories daily. I am down thirteen pounds since the first of the year. This is the best I have ever done without Sparkpeople counting for me. Out of sight has always been out of mind for me. If I didn't count the calories, then they must not be there right???? That is why I have always gained weight when I didn't track. I am coming to grips with how vital tracking really is for me. I am seeing results again. I hope to get back to my low point again. I can do it. I am doing it.
This has been an eventful six weeks too. My husband ran over my dog exactly six weeks ago today. She had guilt surgery to repair badly broken back legs. She still isn't putting much weight on them which is fine. She fell in love with the vet and the staff at the clinic fell in love with her too. The vet, not long out of college, was proud of the work she did to repair the legs. She has pins in her legs, which occasionally break the skin :( She can move remarkably well just on her front legs without support. I sometimes have a hard time keeping up with her. She is getting more and more back to her old self. I am so glad she is still here with us. She is the Pit bull in my pictures. I love that dog! She is teaching me a lot about determination. If you want something bad enough, there is a way to make it happen. You can defy the odds. You can go beyond what you once thought possible. Put your heart into it 100% and you can succeed. In the process you can inspire and bring hope and satisfaction to others. Along the way you may even make a few friends.
