So last night, pups and I started our walk and about a block from the house, it started to rain - just a couple of drops - no biggy - figured we might get back in time before the rain - NOPE!
We got about half way in our (15 minute) walk and the rain started - it wasn't bad. I figured I'd get pups going and jog a bit - HAH! I can't jog for more than 50 feet! Pups was all upset because she couldn't sniff and then it started coming down a little harder - That got pups going - she was almost pulling me.
We made it home - RIGHT before the downpour - and I mean downpour - as soon as we got on the porch.
Man - it probably took me a good 10 minutes to catch my breath. IT SUCKS! I keep thinking - I would die if someone was after me (like in a horror movie).
I really need to try to do this jog/walk thing with pups. At least she would never make fun of my junk jiggling! LOL!

You would think I would learn the first time - I KNOW that's why I was so sick about a month ago.
So last night, we went to our neighbors for a cookout - WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL. Hamburgers were great - until afterwards. I was SO, SO, SO full. When I went to bed, I knew the feeling....I haven't gotten sick though - I STILL feel SO, SO, SO full! I don't get it!
I'm sticking to a lot of water today. I finally broke down and have had one diet coke and a small muffin (how can my tummy be growling???). I won't be eating much today....I think I need to go for a LONG walk and maybe that will help.
Long story short - NO (REGULAR) HAMBURGERS FOR ME EVER AGAIN!
I forgot to mention that one of the cleaning ladies, who sees me EVERY day, asked me "are you losing weight?" That made me feel really good. I have one some pants that were tight on me and it seems like every time I put them on, they are looser (maybe the washing and wearing is stretching them out!). Anyway, it felt so good to hear the compliment. :)

I hate the weekends - at least when it comes to the food part of it. I just CAN'T control myself. Not that I did really bad this weekend, but still, I'm up about 2 lbs from Friday.
I'm sure a lot of it is watergain. Saturday, hubby's tummy wasn't feeling good, so no eating out - I had a peanut butter sandwich for lunch and baked potatoes for dinner. Then we went to DQ - I really was ready to skip the baked potato, but hubby wouldn't let me. He wanted something besides just the sugar from the Blizzard (which he later regretted eating). Yesterday, hubby SAID he was going to do the BRAT diet - so I made him some rice while I had pasta (there's the 2 lbs!) I thought that was going to be it for the day (I could have lived with that), then hubby asked about grilled cheese & ham sandwiches - I thought he was making them for himself also, but nope - ended up making me 2, while I supposedly guilted him into staying on the BRAT.
So there's my 2 lbs. I just bloat up with carbs - WHY!!!! ???? THEY ARE MY FAVORITE!
I'm continuing to read "Secrets of a Former Fat Girl". I'm liking it. It totally makes sense to me. I'm putting the secrets on my page to remind me. I still need to do some of the thinking exercises that she mentions (basically your food habits - so that you are conscious of them).
It hit me today that I need to get going to make my goal weight by September. The days go by way to fast. I also want to go to the doctor and get my blood checked for everything, eyes & hearing checked, etc.- "the 40K checkup"!
At least then I'll have a starting point.

I say that because I know I'm not really committed. At least I don't feel like I am.
I'm about half way through "Secrets of a Former Fat Girl". NOW - I'm enjoying the book - because the author has done the journey and I understand some of her "secrets". Number 2 is keep it a secret - meaning do not share with family, friends, etc EXCEPT one that is supportive and not nagging. They mean well, but if they keep reminding you "should you be eating that", etc. - that's nagging. I think that's where I got sucked in. That secret hit home. Now if I could get #1 - get moving and #3 - It's Not An Option to hit home.
I hate to say it, but I'm drinking more diet coke - I had 3 cans yesterday and I feel so tired today. I've had one so far today. Trying to wait until lunch for another one. I have drank quite a bit of water already. As long as I keep that up - especially first thing in the morning - I'll be happy.
