Well, I spent the afternoon in the emergency room because I cut the tip of my thumb off. They had trouble stopping the bleeding. Couldn't find the piece of thumb in the yellow pepper I was cutting.
Maybe I should weigh in now, while I'm low on blood and missing some flesh!! lol

Okay...I reached my goal weight and I've been able to keep it there for a couple weeks. Yeah, Me!! The deal I had with myself was that I would go out and buy some new clothes when I hit goal. I hesitated for a while because I didn't trust that I would stay there. Well, I did, so I shopped yesterday.
I remember the days of squeezing into a size 12 in the dressing room and being disgusted with what I looked like. Why did it look so much better on the hanger??
Well, yesterday, I took an armload of clothes into the dressing room to try on. Here's what I learned.....Everything looks great when you're a size 4!!! Yeah, Me...again!!!
So, to all of you who are still on your weight loss journey...keep plugging away. The results are amazing!!!

I am a creature of habit. I pretty much follow a routine everyday, changing a little here and there, but overall following a pattern. I like it. I'm in control.
We own a business and I work out of our home...about 10 hour/week. I have a lot of time on my hands and I think the routine keeps me from getting stagnant.
I bicycle certain days of the week with a local bike club. (Weather permitting) It's part of my routine.
It's when my routine is compromised that I have trouble.
Sometimes I fill in for the dental assistants at a local office. It throws off my routine and I'll start to get anxious the night before, which leads to snacking.
If there's a special event, or vacation, etc....I lose control of myself.
Now, here's the big upcoming challenge. We have a friend from Wisconsin, who is unemployed and his benefits are just about depleted. He hasn't been able to find a job. To keep him from living under a bridge, we have invited him to move down to Tennessee with us to try his luck searching for a job here. He is a very nice man, who deserves some help. I'm confident that he'll be able to find something to get back on his feet and start fresh. (BTW-His divorce is final tomorrow, too, so he really needs a change.) He arrives on Friday.
The anxiety is building. I look forward to having him here, but I worry about how I'm going to handle the change. How will my routine be affected? Will his eating habits rub off on me? (He's a big guy.)
I'll have to dig in and keep sparking, keep exercising, keep pushing forward and try my hardest to roll with it, without " feeding" my fears.
Wish me luck!

Well, I'm not a football fan....just a Packer fan. This comes from living part of my life in Green Bay, Wi.
So, here's the plan for today. ( My husband is actually up in Green Bay right now. I had to make my own plans for the big day.):
After doing a few last minute cleaning things around the house, I have a 35 mile bike ride scheduled with friends. It's supposed to be about 50 degrees and sunny today. We have to take advantage of it while it lasts, because the rest of the week looks pretty crappy. This bike ride will help me burn some calories in preparation for the Superbowl.
For the game, I've invited 8 friends over to watch it. In my Wisconsin-born brain, you can't watch football without bratwurst and Wisconsin cheese. (Thus, the bike ride!) Moderation will be the key word today! It should be a good time.
It's not everyday that the Packers make it to the Superbowl. Last time, in the 90's, I lived in Green Bay. My boys were little and we had a blast with all of the festivities. This time, all of my guys are up there. (I would have gone, but it's too cold for me! I've become a southerner.) My one request of my husband was to bring me back a Packer T-shirt (size small!!). Preferably, a "Superbowl Champions" T-shirt!!
Enjoy the game everyone!!!

Yeah, me!!!! I reached goal!!!
It's been slow going, which is good, and I've been learning a lot along the way, but I've been here before. Two years ago, I reached this same weight for about a week and then started gaining again.
My goal now is to lose just a few more pounds (for a cushion), keep sparking and teach myself how to live at this weight.
So today....I will keep following my plan, get this house cleaned for a weekend Superbowl party and treat myself to a new yoga class.
Woo Hoo! Yeah, me!!!
