And the roller coaster drops...

Sunday, September 22, 2013


Feeling crappy. Started my period. Going through menopause. In-laws in my living room. Eating too much. The weather changed from 80 degrees Thursday to pouring rain, wind and 50 degrees today. Need I go on?

I need to move ahead. Keep calm and carry on. Just keep swimming. Listen to ABBA. Dancing Queen makes everything better!

I will not quit. I will not give up on myself. I can totally do this. I deserve this. It is hard right now, but it will get easier.

I did go for a walk today and the weather held out just for me. (The rain stopped and the sun came out)

I did decide to challenge myself to a new weight loss goal: 15 lbs by Jan. 1. I can totally do that, it is 16 weeks away. Anyone want to join me? Message me if you do. This will help me find the motivation that flew out the window last weekend.

I know this too shall pass.

    The sun and Abba all good signs of good things to come! You've got this girl and I know you will accomplish your goal. Whatever you lose will be good should you not reach the goal, be proud of what you do accomplish. That is the key! Be proud that you took time out for a walk and did something good for yourself even when under stress! emoticon

    I'm sorry you are feeling low. In- laws can do that to you. emoticon I was feeling down since my parents left. I never seem to get to spend enough time with them. I love ABBA and I need to put it on my MP3 player. I will join you on your weight loss challenge. GO us!

    Hey Dancing Queen! Here's a question for you: Are you going to let those in-laws dictate how you feel about yourself? NOPE NOPE NOPE! Then put your feelings first and look after you. If that means sneaking away for a walk, having a nap, whatever -- do whatever you have to do to keep yourself feeling important. Yes - this will pass and after everyone has gone home - you'll feel more yourself again. Just don't undo all the greatness you've accomplished up to now!

    Yes, this too shall pass. I had a bad week myself. Ate too much of stuff I shouldn't have in first place. I was doing great on my exercise but "you can out exercise a bad diet. " I am starting over from today( Monday.)

    You can do it absolutely! I understand about life throwing things at you constantly. I will absolutely go in with ya! I am trying to lose 32 pounds by then. So let's do it! Feel free to add me. I weigh in on Mondays so it will be 32 pounds from my tomorrow weight. Hopefully I didn't gain this week!
