There are times when everything seems to be going my way and at others like there is not another thing or person that could DUMP on me. This week seems to be the first kind of roll. I am feeling giddy/silly/crazy - nothing is really exciting or new or different, just the week seems to be going smoothly. Objectively, there is NO REAL GOOD REASON to feel so happy BUT I do. The students have been sick, whiny, but not aggressive. There have been a ton of things that have gone kinda wrong but they don't seem to bother me this week. I have often blogged about having days when I am down, sad, out of sorts or whatever and can't really explain why - this one is about being happy, content, peaceful and not really knowing why.
Seriously though - for me there are moments and milestones that are so much more than I would expect them to be. I have been having SERIOUS knee problems for about 3 years - I have lost 50+ lbs but while they have hurt less, it has continued to be there. Once I tumbled over the threshold of 300 all of a sudden - they don't hurt. I may be weird - okay I AM weird and I know it - but it seems really remarkable that there are MAJOR changes where a single lb makes ALL the difference in the world. Why would ONE lb make that BIG a difference? I don't know but I can assure you that it REALLY does when it is the RIGHT ONE lb. When I got under 200 the last time, I no longer had to take ANY med i cations for diabetes, BP, cholesterol, asthma, sleep ap nea or even my allergies. When I hit 201 I started needed them again.
I guess I have rambled enough. Everyone have a great evening and tomorrow.
