Well we didn't get abducted but it is a very interesting little place. I enjoyed the trip. I can mark that off my list now. It would have been even more fun if we had been during the week they celebrate the Roswell event but this was okay and less crowded. We stopped at a really cute restaurant and I had a footlong chili cheese dog and fries. The thing is I stopped when I was full so I only ate half the dog and a quarter of the fries. I actually had to eat a snack when we got home because I had held back on my calories so I could splurge on my dinner without causing too much damage. It was really good but I didn't miss it as much as I thought. I didn't gain either (at least yet). I am still at 147.2, only 5.2 pounds to go! It came the mother of all rainstorms while we were coming back. That is really rare in NM but it does happen sometimes. It made it a little less fun but still it was a totally fun day. I got up this morning and did my exercise bike for 45 minutes even though I didn't have to. I want to make sure I put in the time to offset the occasional "free meal" as my friend calls them. Not to toot my own horn but I am really pleased with my results over the last few months since joining the web site. I am going to get off here and cheer my Nascar driver, Jeff Gordon, on. Looks like he needs it now. Hope we all have a great week!
147.2! I don't remember the last time I was this small. It might have been in the mid-80s when we lived in LA. At any rate I was so excited when the scale said 147.2 this morning. I am shooting for 142 so I am almost 5 pounds from goal! I am really trying to work my plan even though there is a fair amount of stress in my life right now. The good news is that for once my weight is not contributing to that stress. I saw my doctor and her staff and they were all thrilled for me. I gave them the website address. She is going to check it out. I told her this was the best diet tool since sliced whole wheat bread. Well I also got the size 6 Coldwater Creek jeans I had ordered from their outlet website. They were really marked down so I ordered them. I wore them yesterday and they are already a little baggy. I swear I think I might be in a size 4 (ColdWater sizing) before this is done. That means I would wear a 6 or an 8 in most everything else. How cool is that. I don't remember ever being in the single digit sizes. Wow....we just decided to run down to Roswell. I have never been but I love the whole alien thing. No clue if it really happened or not but it is a great story. I better hurry. It is 200 miles southeast from ABQ. I will report back tomorrow unless I get abducted!!!
It is finally here...my beloved Friday. Only a few more hours and it is officially the weekend! It has been a long busy week and I am ready for some R&R. I am hoping for a good weigh in this weekend. I have been pretty good good with calories and food and perfect with my exercise this week. Even if it doesn't show up this weekend it will show up at some point. Only 8 more pounds to go and I will have lost 129 pounds to get to my goal. That is a whole person. No wonder I have skin sagging all over the place. I will definitely need to have some skin removed at some point when I can afford it. My tummy is going to need way more than a tuck. So do my thighs and arms. My boobs are so low now I can't figure out what to call them. I will definitely have to do something about that at some point. Here is to cosmetic surgery! Hope we all have a great weekend!!
So it has been a rough couple of weeks as far as food goes. Not a disaster but not up to my usual standards. I have been doing my exercise routine though. I got on the scale and was 149.8. That is the first time I have been 140 anything in two decades (at least 15 years). I was shocked but very happy. I am not sure what I did to deserve this but I am really excited. I have only 8 pound to go to be to 142. Woo hoo!!
It is another Wednesday and all is well (I think). Work is really busy which is the new norm. I am just hanging in as best I can. Some days are worse than others. Wow...there was a time (not tooo long ago) that I would have said some days are BETTER than others. Those days are gone. I am thinking about going back to school for my masters but therre is so many questions about what the future holds as far as where we will move and the like. Considering how dull everything feels right now there is a lot of uncertainty in my life. You would think that would spice things up a bit but is seems to be having the opposite effect. Who knew?
