This morning my weight is 146. I am now down 11 pounds and only 1 pound from my old goal of 145 reached in June 2010. I am starting an 8 week challenge on 10/6 and even with a 10 day trip and family time, I plan to be at my new goal of 140 by the end of the challenge.
I am biking as much as possible as I will not be doing much of that through the winter. It doesn't get really cold here but we do see cooler weather and I find the extra wind generated with biking makes me feel too cold to enjoy the ride. So I will start walking more often as the cooler weather progresses. It is good--I like to walk, I just know that biking burns more calories per hour and is helping to improve my leg appearance.
I am off to play pickleball in a bit. It is very good exercise and a lot of fun. I am going to do my weight work before I go.
I am feeling much better. A couple of weeks of eating more calories and the weather being less hot has eliminated my constantly tired out feeling. I did the right thing by taking a break and being able to come back to losing feeling good.
I am feeling better and better about out trip in mid October. I am going to continue to work on my attitude and expect to be looking forward to it soon. I am very happy that DH will have time with his kids, grandkids, and the new great-grandbaby. His enjoyment will make this trip a wonderful experience for me also. I have spent too many years being uncomfortable with large groups of family. The why doesn't matter, what matters is knowing it is silly and getting over it. I am not going to let any of this be difficult either. I am OK, they are all OK, everyone loves and cares for one another so my lack of comfort is just a throwback to someone I no longer am.
Today is a good day, yesterday was a good day, tomorrow looks to be a good day, and the rest will work out for good.
