I'm still determined to lose this weight

Sunday, July 25, 2010

but not determined enough as it is not done. Just a pound a month would be better than naught and that shouldn't be hard to do - just do it...

    Hi Jackie,
Just get up tomorrow and say this is a new day and just start the day off thinking positive of the goal you want to reach.

This year I must win. I've had practice and know what I'm doing wrong. I'll follow Sparks Nutrition, walk, bike, and make it work...

DH just announced, "Truck's sold" and I shivered.

It's an emotional reaction from me - we are in the final phase of this part of our life. Our life in Puerto Rico where we've been living for the last 9 winters (6 - 8 months a year). We've become Puerto Rican citizens, have PR drivers licence and ID's and tons of friends (both Puerto Rican and Gringos), but now will be moving back to the states and to become residents of Florida.

When we moved here we started a small boat rental business with 5 boats. Now two are sold and gone, 1 will go today the other two are promised. Then our business of 9 years will be closed.

DD will arrive tomorrow to help us sell our excess in a garage sale. What doesn't sell we'll put on the sidewalk and it will be taken away by needy and not so needy people, but will be put to use.

We will mail personal possessions - mostly books and clothing - and on May 2 leave with our dog, and the maximum suitcases allowed on the plane.

We are not done tho. Our guesthouse has not sold. We have a summer manager to work at the guesthouse and we will continue to take reservations and tend to customers for it over internet and telephones. If it is not sold by November we'll be back to manage it, but will not have a vehicle, personal junk, etc. and not have the emotional move of this month.

We will not buy in FL until the GH is sold - tears are in our eyes, and excitment in our hearts and all the time - losing weight is on my mind!!!

Thank you for listening...

    Hi again Jackie. I was so moved by this blog. It all must be a bit unsettling. It will be difficult to leave all those friends behind. I am sure by now you have moved and all is well. Hopefully you are able to make new friends and find that the new phase is wonderful.

    I can feel the wrenching at your heart strings Jackie, but it seems as if you think itís time to move on.. Look to-wards the bright lights on the horizon, thereís a fresh start and a new life ahead and waiting there for you.. Good luck with it all.

I didn't make my mini goal but will try again.

I'm still determined to lose this weight. I'll bump up the exercise I'll try for 165 for next Monday - one week late but "I can do it!"

Last night I wore pants that I haven't fit into since July!


Mini goal to weigh 165 on May 12

Friday, March 02, 2007

Only 2 pounds and 10 days to go - I should be able to do it! So do it!
