Yes, I am still a slave to the scale. I want it to move in the downward direction!! Today is my weigh-in day. Unfortunately, I am up 1/2 a pound. Ok, ok, that's really nothing but I had hoped to be down, just a little anyway.
Oh well, it will NOT deter me. I shall persevere. I do feel a change (a small one) and think that I really am back on track. I wish it was a bright, sunny day so I could walk but it's raining :(. I may get those weights out instead.
Have a great Sunday everyone. Hang in there, it's what I'm doing!

It's really hard to not be angry with myself for gaining so much weight back but....I'm really trying.
A few weeks back I bought a pair of capri pants. They were a size 10 and I just eyeballed them and figured they would fit. I tried them on when I got home and I have to say they were a little tight but there is no way I was going to bring them back and get a bigger size.
I have been working hard and since today was a beautiful day and I was going to spend the day outside I tried them on again. I'm happy to report they fit. There was no tight spot on them at all. Even though I haven't really lost much weight, I have been moving a lot more of late so I guess I'm losing in inches.
If I keep going this way, these pants will be really loose by the end of June. I am looking forward to that!!!
Walking the lake again today, also walking there and back (ads another mile) so four miles today for me!!

I walked the lake again today. That is a very good thing for me. I keep waiting for it to get easier but so far, it hasn't. It will if I keep at it. While I was walking today I was figuring out tomorrow and when I could get out and walk again. That's real progress for me.
As I did the last time I set out on this journey, I am trying to remember to pick up a stick when my walk is almost done. I have a box in the garage that I throw them into. Sometimes it a little one, sometimes I bring home something a few inches thick. Then, when winter hits, I use these sticks to light a big fire in my fireplace. It feels great to burn away all those calories even if it is symbolically.
So, today I brought home a nice fat one that will burn for a while. I hope the box is overflowing by winter and that I look fabulously thin in that firelight!!!

Last night was another baseball game for my son. He chose not to go to track practice before the game because it was just to much and I completely understood. As usual, he was awesome with a couple of hits and one was infield which he beat out with speed I had never seen before. Wow, this track work is really helping him.
About 1/2 way through the game a man approached me asking if I was Josh's mom. I knew him as the dad of one of the kids on his team so I thought maybe there was an altercation in the dugout (I had seen him in there with the kids.) I braced myself.
Nope, it turns out he is a scout for the county team. No, not local but the entire COUNTY! He asked if we would be interested in having Josh on the summer travel team because he has the makings of an all star. WOW!!!! (I casually asked if his son was on this team and he laughed and said no, he wasn't good enough)
Again WOW! What an honor. We are thrilled, Josh is trilled and now I don't have to worry about what I'm going to do with him over the summer!!
They won their game 10 - 7. The boys were pumped. I'm so happy for my son. As soon as he come back from wrestling camp he starts baseball and as this coach told us, he is going to take Josh to a whole new level.
Ok, off the soap/bragging box now and back to your regularly scheduled program.
