Been plugging away at my plan and by golly it is working. Today I saw some real movement in the scale. 327 and I am very happy. Can you imagine being excited to be 327? It is all relative, isn't it?
This is when I wish I could travel back in time and visit with my young self and say, "My dear, one day you will be thrilled to be DOWN to 327 lbs." Maybe it would make me think before shoveling in all that comfort food! Maybe...
So my plan is to soldier on, continue to lose until I can walk again without canes, or be thin enough to have hip replacement surgery. I sometimes sit and think - oh I have this wrong, and that wrong and then I realize that whatever is wrong, the improvements for these ailments all begin with weight loss.
Today's victory. We have a box of Wheat Thins in the kitchen. We buy them when the grandkids come over on Fridays. I vowed not to have them since last week I finished off the box by myself and it took me 3 days to get the water weight off from the sodium. So I have not had any. If push comes to shove, I can have my husband take them out and put them in his truck-but I would like to learn enough control to say, "no thank you" and NOT have to hide the darn things from myself.
Anyone familiar with the line from the Pink song, "Don't let me get me!" Yeah, I am my own worst enemy--LOL
