April 22nd, 2013 - Another pound gone and another weekend passes

Monday, April 22, 2013

While I may have dreamed that I would be farther along with this weight loss process...I'm also VERY happy with my results so far. From 1/6/13 I have dropped 19 pounds and so close to my 10% goal. I am proud with each ounce or pound that I drop because I know that I will NEVER be back up at this weight again. If I had known that moving 3000 miles from home, quitting smoking and losing my job would take 6 years for me to drop the weight I really would have kicked my own bottom LONG ago. I guess that is what happens when you live in denial and think that even though your sizes are going up your body shape is the same as it was back in the size 10s....YES DENIAL!

However NO longer am I living with the excuses, I am taking ownership of my body and doing the work it takes to get it back....TO GET ME BACK! It's been way too long for this and through it all I am finding myself again, loving myself again!

This weekend was filled with taking care of my little sick one. I even got snuggle time from her, which for anyone with a teenager knows how RARE that is SO rare that I had my husband take a picture of it!

Poor little thing is still at home with the cough and now a runny nose. Have an appt tomorrow for her and can only pray she is on the road to getting better. Nothing worse than your child being sick and there is nothing you can do about it.

The hubby did take me out on Sunday morning for breakfast at the Cracker Barrel. That was great as it has been so long from the last time we went there. I even broke down and bought a jar of the Apple Butter because it tastes just like my Grandma's (hard to believe that next month is 2 years from her leaving us). On the way home the sun was shining so much that we were able to open the sun roof and enjoy the spring air. Hubby was driving my car which turned out great because he got stuck in traffic...I have Horrible road rage! LOL

Me out in the sun!

Over all even with a sick one at home the weekend was good. I got to bed early each night which really helped make it a restful one for me!

    Kim I just love the pic of you and DD. Brought tears to my eyes. Every now and then I grab my teens and hug 'em. Just want them to know how much I love 'em. I even do it in public, LOL.

    Hope DD is feeling better. Nice weather is coming and it's horrible to be sick when it's nice out.

    I have to confess to being a little verbal on the road when people do stupid things or not being courteous like moving over when they're taking a left so people can continue on their way.

    Congrats on your weight loss. You worked hard to get where you are. emoticon

    You're making awesome progress! Nineteen pounds in a little over four months is a super reasonable and maintainable amount of weight loss.

    I can relate to that photo. I'm 26 and when I'm sick, I still just want my mommy. Even with an amazing hubby who would do anything to take care of me, I still want mommy time! hahaha.

    LOVE the photos, I wish I could get my sons to cuddle, but they are both taller than me now. Every once in a while I get a nice long hug, but they are boys...and not really into PDA with MOM! LOL
    Hope your daughter is better soon!!!

    Congrats on the loss! emoticon
