Today I attended a family day at my husband's lodge. I felt so good in my skin. My butt looks fantastic in these jeans, which doesn't hurt.
All of the women there are overweight (myself included.) I made sure to compliment one friend who has clearly done something... she looks a lot better!
It felt good to know I was making healthier choices in a situation where there really WERE no healthy choices. burger, hot dogs, chips... not a veggie in sight.
But I had my one hot dog. Light on the condiments. Piece of cheese. I had some cheese balls, but just a few. I didn't finish my pepsi (there was only Mt Dew and Pepsi to drink. Literally.) I had just enough to wash the food down.
I was disappointed that my husband chose to gorge a bit, but I didn't say anything. He had two hamburgers (bacon cheeseburgers, no less.) A giant hot dog. THREE servings of cheese balls, at least, PLUS a small back of ruffles. Two pepsis.
I worry so much about him. He's trying, but sometimes I think he doesn't think about what he's doing. I wish I could do more, but I know that nagging him won't help. It'll just make him feel guiltier.
So I'm down another pound. A little bloaty after a pizza hut day a few days ago, but comfortable in the clothes I'm wearing.
I am progressing well on decluttering. I need to do more in the bedroom... I was going to wait until tomorrow, but you know? I have a couple hours before the next family engagement, so I think I'll go through some stuff in the bedroom.
Potentially interesting experience coming: one of my daughter's hispanic friends is having a birthday party this afternoon. Her family has invited us, and I enthusiastically accepted the invitation. I love her mom to death. They're a great family! I can't wait to go. It could be a culturally different thing, or it may be exactly like what I'm used to. :) Can't wait to see, either way. New friends, fun times!
