It has been a productive week. Eating has gone well and lots of excercise. I treated myself when I got a hair cut on Wednesday and had her put some color in my hair also. I have had white hair since in my 30s (taking after my father) and decided I needed some kind of change, so we put some red streaks in for fun and I love it. Hubby said it looked fine and when I bowl tonight I will see what the girls think. Surprising how something as simple as that can make you feel so good.
We will leave on Wednesday the 27th and head to my daughters and then on Friday we leave from there to head for Florida for their family vacation. I am so ready for it is only 9 degrees here so looking forward to the warmth. I have new capris and shorts to wear in size 16. For me that is a big goal met. Hopefully I can get down one more size this summer and meet my second goal of 14s and 150#. Slow is the goal and I will win. Charts say I should be 140s but many years ago I got to that weight and was sick all the time so was told by a doctor that it was to low for me. So this time I will be smart and go down to when I feel and look good for me.
That is the whole picture, to do it for me and feel good about me. I have always put my family first and neglect the me part so I think I am learning that I come first. The boys in the house have finally decided they also should lose and want me to help them, which I will do but not to the point that I lose the me attitude. Always thought that was selfish but am changing that way of thinking.
Onward and downward(in this case). I am the one that counts and I am so worth it.
