Got in a short workout today at the fitness center.....had to get home to Skype with my siblings.......just a visit to catch up on Dad's estate tax filing or in this case not filing....the expense of filing almost outweighs the amount owed to Dad's estate. Definitely not worth it, especially as it would be split three ways as well. My brother says we are doing our part to balance the budget by leaving it to the government. LOL
Very patriotic of us, right?
My siblings are being very supportive about this weight loss journey of mine.....my sis is one of those annoying people who has been "skinny" so to speak all her life.....of course she claims to have put on a few pounds over the years....and my brother has been gaining and losing some over the years.....but neither has ever had the weight issue that I have....my Mom and I had the same "fat" genes and the rest were more "normal" sized. But like I said, they are both very supportive....of course my brother's wife has had bariatric surgery about 3 years ago, so he knows a lot about body image from her.....she still struggles with negative image and she was never what I would call "fat" either....by the way, she does NOT recommend this method for anyone....she has had a lot of nutrition issues since the surgery.....though she does enjoy shopping a lot more now.
Speaking of shopping, I am looking forward to going to The Cities with Hubby in April to do some shopping while he does training for his mission trip.....DD is coming too. I hope to be able to find some slightly smaller clothes to try on at that time.....we are going to hit all the Saver Stores that we can find in the area......that is our favorite 2nd hand store to shop at as of now.....great values and great clothes, even if they are gently used.
Okay, now I need to get some sleep.....I have to work at 6:00 in the morning.....night all.
