We drove in a parade yesterday! Weather was gorgeous. Then in the afternoon went on a mystery drive to Clifton Mill and had dinner. What gorgeous weather.
Mom's been puny soo took over some fresh green beans and new potatos I fixed yesterday. She worried me most of the evening...so we went over after we came home from dinner and she looked so much better and said she had eaten some of the green beans and potatos. She sits and stews about her health and is alone in a dark house and won't get out much. Just gets herself down and we have to get her back up. Been a few things that upset her recently...minister resigning, UTI and finally it clicked in that she has early Alzheimers etc. Change really upsets her and throws her off. I accidently left info from Pharamacy with the meds and now she thinks she has every side effect from the antibiotics.
I am excited...I am finally making progress. Been on here 3 years or so. Exercise is a part of my life, water is my main beverage and pop is very limited. Making healthier choices but weight didn't seem to come off. Tried tracking food a time or two but didn't keep at it or see much success (didn't do it very long) As the scale slowly was climbing nearer and nearer 200...I thought...this has got to stop. So joined a spring spark challenge and did so-so but started tracking better. Then joined a summer challenge and things finally started to click. Even eating out some and able to stay withing daily limits. Have lost about 5 pounds now...can't believe it. It's been a long haul...but counting and writing them down really is starting to work for me. There have been days where I have gone over too! We see where this journey takes me...I read over and over people's success is tracking...and it seems like that is a good key for me too! Inside I feel so tickled...I can't believe it really works. I am not starving and seem satisfied too!
Off to make it a great day!
