Where has this year gone??? I mean seriously it's March 2nd already! What's with this winter weather - I mean seriously it's 70 degrees out. We've only had a couple of really cold days and they really weren't all that cold. Things didn't die out this winter. We had snakes out last month. We had mosquitoes last month. We had dandelions last month. We had daffodils and other springy, Easter time plants/flowers already in bloom. We had a tornado on Feb. 29th. February was totally out of character.
I told my son the other day that I thought 2012 was going to be known for the weird weather.
Today we're expecting more severe weather. Right now we have a high wind advisory and a tornado watch until 8pm tonight. The sky looks terrible. We had 70 degrees at 8am this morning. If it's not warmer right now, I'd be surprised. The wind is awful. I tried to talk myself out of a walk with my dog this morning but I didn't. I took a 30 minute walk. Thought we'd blow away but it felt so great out I couldn't resist. I even wore my shorts.
Speaking of shorts, I'm going to have to get new summer clothes before long. That 30 pounds I lost over the past seven months made a huge difference in the fit of things.
I felt great Saturday night. We took my (now) 84 year old Aunt out to dinner at Lamberts over in Sikeston MO (home of the throwed rolls) for her birthday. I had on new black (skinnier) jeans and black shirt plus a turquoise tank top underneath. I even had on 2 inch heeled shoes. I did my hair and make up something I don't normally do. I just wish someone had been around to make a picture of me. I felt great. I thought I looked good - something I never say about myself.
I still feel great. Yes I've been gaining and losing the same 3 or 4 pounds for the past month or three but I'm wearing smaller clothes. I feel better about myself. I still have a long way to go but I feel good finally.
I know I can do and I will. I'm a slow loser but I know it will stay off. New life ahead...new outlook.
