Wow I didn't realize that it has been this long since I last made a blog entry. I have been so busy with helping my daughter lately... I have lost track of time.
Last Saturday my son and his fiancÚ graduated from college. He completed a BS Degree and she finished her Masters. I am so proud of them both! Then of course Sunday was Mother's Day... my first since my mother passed away late last summer. I miss her so much, but thanks to my daughter, she made my weekend very special. On Friday night she gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a funny card. On Sunday, she took me out to dinner and gave me "shopping for me" money lol, and then another beautiful card on Monday morning. She gave me that one on Monday because she knew I was going home and she wouldn't have to see me cry lol. I am so proud of her and the woman she has become.
So... about my weight loss program... I have to tell ya, I was not very good on Mother's Day, in fact, I have not been very diligent as of late with my eating choices. I was so totally prepared for a weight gain this morning. So imagine my surprise when I stepped on the scales this morning and saw a five pound weight loss! I weighed three times to be sure I was seeing the numbers right LOL. Don't get me wrong, I am overjoyed and in disbelief, but I will TAKE IT! lol. I am one step closer to meeting my 10lb loss for the month of May! In fact, I am 3lbs away from that goal if my memory serves me correctly. I will have to check that . With the new weight loss I am even more determined to get back to what brought me to start this journey in the first place. I am rededicating myself to journaling faithfully, drinking my water, getting in all of my fruits and veggies, as well as increasing my physical activity. I don't know how long it will take me to reach my final goal weight, but I am even more determined to do this! This is my year .... I promised myself that 2013 would be "MY" year ... to work and focus on being a healthier, happier, me. I am really feeling that I am on my way especially after today's weigh in..... I am officially 40lbs down from my starting weight!
