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...it 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!
