Not sure if it was just premonition for something bad happening that made me doubt myself and my abilities, but today is a better day. Found out yesterday my aunt passed away, last time I saw her was 25 years ago. Last week my best friend had a heart attack. She is doing fine now.
I think what brought me down was the last time I was with J. was the night before she went into the hospital. Is the night I became "Tuck" (short for tuck and roll). J. had a 99% blockage in her left coronary artery, so she went for surgery the following monday. They put a stint in.
This got me thinking that I have to stop putting this weight loss thing on hold. I can NOT afford to let what happened to J. happen to me. So many people would be at a loss for what to do. My husband and my daughter would both go insane. Literally. My mom would just give up and die I think.
So since I posted last I have started measuring all my food (except for yesterday. that was a total loss) and have dropped 3 pounds! 3 pounds in 2 days!!!! A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!! Not so sure yet if getting back to work helped that. We had all of last week off so I pretty much sat around doing nothing, but this week the place has been a mad house sweat box. From what I understand, tonight is going to be no better. Company cook out, but still a sweat box.
I picked up a trade contract over the weekend. I will be doing lawn mowing services (push mower of course) for the use of a garage. My land lord just bought a house down the street so we worked out a deal and I will also be doing some landscaping as well. So with that, our yard, the garden, the dogs, and work I should be busy from sun up to sun down.
Yup, truly feeling better about my situation. And as for J.? Thanks for putting things into perspective for me. I love you girl, and hope you get better soon.
