Today I logged in for the first time in 3 weeks. Lots of reasons, but the main ones were time and motivation. I have kept within 5 lbs of the lowest weight I have been, which I am happy about. But end of school activities (I have an official High Schooler now!), work and home have been so packed that I am to tired to even think about turning on the computer when I get home. Yesterday, my youngest son (And biggest cheerleader) asked if I lost weight this week, and I realized I hadn't even weighed in. I have started getting a bit lazier about eating choices. Today, I figured I better get back to it.
My original goal, to get under 200 lbs, is still top of the list. It is only 12 lbs away and I would have been there by now if I remained committed. To do that, I need to get back to exercising EVERY day instead of every other day and give up the daily glass or 2 of wine I have been indulging in. So that is the goal this week. 10 minutes of activity daily, no wine Mon-Fri

When I was 49, I wanted to lose 50 lbs by the time I turned 50, but did nothing about it. Yesterday I turned 51. and am feeling better and healthier than I did at 50. I still have much to learn. Been slacking off for a couple weeks, and gave myself permission to indulge a little this weekend. But after losing the 45 lbs I have, I find it harder than ever to go 'overboard' - if there is one gift I gave myself this year, it was learning a little self control. I am not perfect. but, I am improving with age.

Gained a pound this week...didn't stop indulging after the holiday. I know the problem. In one of my very first blogs, I realized I ate out of boredom. I have stopped taking long walks in different places on the weekend, and have been hanging out at home after work instead of moving. So I've also been eating too much at night.
I told DH that we are going out and about today. Got to shake this habit I am falling into. I am not giving up.

So for Easter Weekend, I slacked off. Not in my usual way (chocolate, chips, etc)., But I went 500 calories over two days in a row with dinners and wine. I am okay with it and back to more healthy control.
Short, sweet, and control what I eat!

Aw....random stuff I am sorting through....
I love my job, but I get a sick feeling in my stomach every morning when I open my email, anticipating yet another crisis or personality infused issue. It's never as bad as I think, but I am having a hard time getting away from that...
My older brother is no one I'd associate with if he was a random person on the street. In fact, I have been harboring quite a lot of anger towards him because of how his actions have affected my parents. But this week, he did something kind for them, and when I called to see how it was going while he was caring for my dad, I found it was a relief to say thank you to him for that, and let go of that angst. He is who he is. I don't like it. But I can just choose kindness. That's better.
I lost a pound this week. Weight loss pace seems to have slowed down, and I am working at being okay with that.
I saw a friend today I hadn't seen in 4-5 months. She looked at me quizzically and said, "Wow, I like your hair. (Thank you) Blah blah blah. "Oh, you got new glasses, they look cute!" (Thank you) Blah Blah Blah. But she kept looking at me and I knew she knew but wasn't sure what to say. As I am leaving 'Oh, you've lost a lot of weight, haven't you?" Yep. "I knew there was something different, WOW!" I joke with my husband that the first comment people who haven't seen me in a while make is that they like my hair (which is no different than every). It was funny...and cool.
I am between sizes. I actually bough a pair of size 16 pants a few weeks ago (that fit.) It has been...years... probably more than 15, since I've worn 16. But I thought it was a fluke. Today, i went shopping and 18 was definitely too big. But 16 at Macy's were still a tad snugger than I'd feel comfortable in. So no pants on my shopping trip today. But I sure love being between teen sizes instead of twenty sizes!
Things between DH and I are better...not perfect, but healing. That's something to be thankful for,
I've missed my spark friends, and plan to keep in better touch in the coming weeks. Happy Easter everyone! DON'T EAT THE CHOCOLATE BUNNIES!
