I made some difficult ~ but right ~ decisions ~

Friday, April 26, 2013

As of this morning, I am back to the weight that I was when I got sick and stopped really 'counting' my food. I am very happy about that because that is 17 lbs to date. I know I have more to lose but I, also, know that this time I really AM doing it. :)

I had some good news yesterday so I took my son out for supper, to celebrate. We went to a steak and rib restaurant. I ordered a small order of side ribs, with a small caesar salad and a cornmeal muffin. It was wonderful and I enjoyed every bite. :) My son wanted dessert and I knew there was no way he could order sticky toffee pudding, which I love, without me having some. Most of it, most likely. So, I told him we would go to Marble Slab and he could have a medium ice cream with TWO toppings. Of course, I had to go in and pay for it. Well ~ darned if they didn't have fresh banana, my favorite (along with pumpkin), which I haven't had in years. *sigh I asked the girl if I could have a sample AND that was all I had was a tiny bit on the end of a spoon. Boy, was that hard! My son and the cashier both told me I had a lot of will power. I felt so good ~ and I did feel empowered. :)

In a few minutes, we are off to go swimming, something else I haven't done for waaaaay too long. I did buy a bike and have been going on short bike rides every night ~ but they really ARE short. LOL Sometimes even 5 - 10 minutes. These old legs need to get used to it, without aching. But, swimming is my passion ~ so it should be great on all levels. :)

That's what's new with me. How 'bout you? Have a wonderful day ~ and weekend! :)

    I feel the same about bike riding and swimming. I am trying to ride more. One of my (long term) goals is to do a mini tri.

Congrats on the great day! emoticon
