No change in weight since start of the trip

Tuesday, May 15, 2012


I'm still at 202 pounds. I have some ideas why that I didn't lose any weight. I didn't do much walking and there was way too many temptations around for me to eat. I'm hoping that I can get back to 200 pounds before the end of the month.

Well, got the pets home yesterday from the vet in the morning. The cat is banned from going back there. He hissed, growled, and tried to scratch on of the gals that works there. They had me try to get him. No luck for me. So one of the vets and one of the gals got him. A bath towel, wrapped him up and put him into his pet taxi. So we have to find a new place to board him.


I'm wishing that I was back up in Minnesota holding my 8 day old grandniece Katelynn. I'm missing her so much. I just have to look at the photos of her.

It's been a long day. And hot. Had to take a vehicle to get an alignment job on it in one town (the vehicle needs to be in a junk yard). Then we went to anothe town to get a parts. Both things were for the garage here in town. Then we went up to my stepcousin's house for a while . Tomorrow we're going to Galesburg, IL, for dad's doctor appointment. It's just an annual check up for him. I'm going o see if dad can ask the doctor for more refills for my blood pressure medicine since I ran out of them in March. I still got some until next month.


I'm the only one up besides the pets. Dad is going to bed early because of his doctor's appointment in the morning.

I got my hair color today but I haven't used it yet. I'm going to wait until I get my hair cut first before I put it in. On one side it shows the before and after of certain shades of blond. My hair color is the bottom color on the before. The after color was just what I was wanting. Not too light and not too light but a whole lot lighter than I what want.

I ate pretty light today but I'm hoping that there are changes in my weight. Plus I did a lot of walking while running errands and walking the dog twince for 12 minutes each. I may do more tomorrow if I'm lucky.

It was almost 90 degrees today. It was sunny and beautiful but we're suppose to get some rain tonight. Tomorrow we are going to be sunny and 75 degrees. I hope so because I can take the dog for more than one walk. I took her for 2 today.
