Well, I survived my trip to the dentist today--3 root canals in the front teeth in one day. I go back next week to have the bridge installed; until then I have a porcelain temporary bridge which looks as good as regular crowns, but the actual bridge will be more permanent. I'm still very happy with the work my dentist did.
I'm not quite as happy with the hairdo I got today afterwards. Two weeks ago I had a cut and style and kind of liked it. Today a different girl did my hair and it just doesn't do a thing for me, but I promised a more recent photo so here it is.
Of course, my mouth was still numb from the dental work, but you get the idea. I also just posted a photo of me taken last November just after a short haircut. I'm thinking the short hair is more like me. Any comments?
I don't see much difference in my weight between the 2 photos, other than a bit in my face. But I am still losing. Lost another pound this week for a total of 103 pounds gone forever. I'm doing well on the new calorie range and my body seems to like it better too.
I'm watching the new season of Extreme Makeover on TV. It's far too extreme for my tastes or ability, but it does keep me motivated to see the great success these people have had. I've even been motivated to add some new exercise to my daily routine, so that's great. And instead of watching TV for hours, I now listen to reggae music often. It's happy music and makes me want to dance, even while I'm cleaning my house or fixing dinner. I'm loving this new me.
Whatever motivates us to keep on is good. Stop and think of what motivates you to keep going. And add some fun to your daily routine. Life is short and we need to enjoy it, rather than waiting until we lose the extra weight. I've done that long enough.
