Memorial day weekend 2008
Saturday, May 31, 2008
Today is the Saturday following the big weekend. It was quite a week for me.
First, I lost a very precious furbaby. One of my Shelties. She was old and her heart started failing her a week ago today. By Memorial day (Monday) it was very, very apparent that she wasn't going to make it. She will be missed badly! She was my traveling partner, my therapy dog and for many years my best friend.
Second, I started on level 3 of Sparks. I even changed my goals. When I started I had more than 50 lbs that I needed to get rid of. I actually thought "no way I could lose 50 lbs so I'll put that down as all I want to lose. Then if I take off 20 or 30 of it I won't look like as big failure. I will feel wonderful just to have that much off" Well folks by now I'm down 25 lbs. and I see how I can become healthy again. Granted I have hit a plateau now and the scale didn't move this week but I had a though week and missed a few day of exercise. Anyway at the start of 3 I decided to "go for broke" and commit for all I need to lose. To quit playing hide & seek with the numbers. Before I would never tell my weight but would just say how much I lost. I am going to stop that an even change my ticker tape at the bottom of my posts. Now that is commitment to me! lol Thank God for Sparks!
Thank God for Sparks!
