Today has been so busy I can't even figure out where it went. I saw someone at lunch that I hadn't seen in a couple years and both of them raved about how great I look. I don't know about that but it is nice to get a compliment that I think I kind of deserve (at least a little). This is going to be really short. I have to get back at it or I will be here half the night!! BTW, down to 140.4 this morning (6.4 pounds from my goal of 134)!!!
Where did the weekend go? I have been busy cleaning and throwing stuff away so the move will go smoother. All of a sudden it is Sunday afternoon. I did my exercises and am eating now but I will need to get back to work soon. I don't think the work fairy is showing up anytime soon! I am down again this morning (140.6) which means I only have 6.6 pounds to my goal weight and BMI. Woo hoo! With Spark People in my tool chest it feels like it has been easy compared to the 4000 other attempts to lose weight and get health in the past. I heart Spark People!
Well it is sinking in that a moving van will be coming in a little while. I love moving. It is such a great time to sort through junk and get rid of stuff. I get a whole new set of friends with the benefit of keeping the friends I already have. You can never have too many true friends. They can be really hard to come by. We are cleaning out the garage and making a run to the dump later today. Yesterday I had some friends over to go through the clothes that don't fit anymore. The rest will be going to the food bank my husband is on the board of. At least someone will get some use out of them. Some of the stuff is pretty good. It is funny as I have been cleaning out closets that fat clothes look completely different from thin clothes. It isn't really very nice that overweight people have to wear less stylish clothes than thin people but it is a fact. Unless you have a ton of cash you can't get really cute clothes in a size 18 or greater. Lane Bryant does an okay job but it is hard to get your entire wardrobe from one store. Well my break is over. I have finished eating and need to get back to work. I am thinking about joining the LA Spark People team tonight. Too exciting!!!!!
I am so glad the week is over. My husband found a job 19 months after being laid off. It is in LA and that is our favorite place to live. The job is his first choice and the city is too so we are too happy beyond words. It was so busy at work I didn't have time to celebrate. I even missed a laser hair removal appointment. I completely forgot it. I have been going for 3 years and have never even been late. Hopefully they will forgive me this one time. We have a corp. person coming in on Monday and one of the guys leaves for a business trip on Monday afternoon on top of a long meeting and all the normal stuff. That made it difficult to get my water in because I just didn't take breaks to go get it. I am not going to slow down much now though. I need to sale the house, move all the stuff and find a job. All of which I can do just wish I had more time. I seem to be saying that a lot anymore. We went out to eat tonight and I did fine (stayed just under top calorie range). We got home and the internet was down. Come to find out after a lot of trouble shooting the wireless router had died. I had an old one so we are still good. It just took time to get everything set up and going again. Now it is time for bed and I didn't get much accomplished. Tomorrow is another day!
It is too early to tell exactly how the day is going down but I am hopeful it will be a good one. I was down a scoach this morning on the scale. It isn't the defining thing but it does help keep me in line as far as eating goes. I am still doing really well with the exercise part. That is pretty impressive knowing me. I am not sure why I have done this well this time. I suspect it is a perfect storm of things as they say. Turning 50 helped with it. Spark People is huge with the changes I have chosen to make. The threat of moving to a new place has helped. I could start over and no one would know I used to be "morbidly obese" unless I choose to tell them. I think it is a big bowl of all of that and a couple more things too probably. My BMI is normal! Yeah for me!!
