If I could put this into practice, I'd be goal weight by now.
While I work at losing weight, Im working at putting on weight for my rescue great dane dog.
She's doing it in record time. Wish it was as easy for me to lose mine, as it is for her to gain hers.
Jewel as she was in the first we got her.
Jewels in her second week.
Jewel in her third week with us.
I can hardly believe its only been 3 weeks since we brought her home.
She is such a delightful animal. Loving nature (sometimes a little too loving LOL) and a great watchdog. We had a young repair man over to repair our DSTV and she placed herself between him and I. When he accidentally dropped a tool on my wooden floor, she leaped up and threatened him with a deep, rumbling growl. Ooh I feel so safe and secure with her having my back.
It's been a good week so far. Eatings under control for now and Im enjoying the changes I've made and the control I've regained.
Today I spent the morning with both my sons...a rarity these days with Cole living 45 minutes away in another town. He's down for a long weekend before starting work on Tuesday morning. My nephew is also down this weekend, so its a full house once more.
I am determined to eat healthily this weekend, and it will be easy with Cole determined to do the same. He is my inspiration. When he started working for the catering company 5 months ago, he wore a size 38 pants. Despite working for a firm where he could eat absolutely anything he wanted, as well as had access to any amount of fizzy cold drinks, he lost weight. We went shopping today for some new clothes for him and hes down to a size 34 pants. but once again, there was no magic. He ate right, swam in the ocean every morning, and did some heavy exercise with a boxing bag. Hes looking buff and feeling great.
My elder son and I have joined his efforts. So, we'll see if our efforts over the next 5 months in any way match his.
I obviously wont lose the amount he did...I'm not 27 years old, and I certainly cant exercise as heavily as he did. But if I can just say NO to junk the way he did, it will take me very far.
So....here's to my renewed efforts.
