Not a good weekend for exercise...

Sunday, April 11, 2010

This weekend did not go as planned. DH and I had wanted to spend time together for one, and that never happened. Our daughter got sick and ended up in the emergency room Friday night, which left us watching the grandkids...again. She has cysts on her ovaries and it seems that one of them is giving her extreme pain. Her doctor may think about taking the ovary since she has been having trouble with these cysts for a long time. She's 23 years old and already knows she's not going to be able to have any more children.

We did make it to the gym Saturday but I just didn't do weights as I should have. I keep telling myself that I need to do the weight training to try to tone up my body, but all I want to do, once I get to the gym is spend an hour on the elliptical. By the time I get off that, I just don't have the energy to do any other exercises.

Today we didn't make it to the gym because we got stuck watching the grandkids again, for most of the day. That hadn't been planned. We were supposed to have been able to go out on our motocycle and enjoy the day. It didn't happen. Now tomorrow it's back to work and we'll have to wait another week to be able to do what we would like to do.

Saturday, I had an appointment with a friend who fits people for the proper size bra. I've gone from a size 40FFF to a size 36DD! emoticon That was probably the most exciting part of the weekend!

It's still hard for me to believe that I've lost the weight that I have! After having been so heavy for so long, I'm still looking at myself as a fat person, even though I'm wearing size 10 jeans! It's so hard to think that I used to wear size 26W!

I'm not taking any chances with this weight loss either. I've gotten rid of all of my fat clothes and am getting more skinny clothes as I can afford them. I've reached my goal weight...well close enough anyway, and I wouldn't be unhappy if I lost another 5 to 10 pounds. I'm not looking to do that, but if it happens it happens. emoticon

I hope that I can be an inspiration to others that drop by my page, even though I don't update it as often as I could. Just don't have much time in the day to spend online. I'm hoping dh will take new photos of me soon so that I can update.

Here's hoping the week will be a better week. I'm hoping that our daughter doesn't have to have this surgery, or any surgery for that matter to get rid of these cysts. That's the biggest worry right now. I'm going to work on staying positive every day, starting right away in the morning, thanking God for another day of life!

    First, congrats on your weight loss and incredibly shrinking yourself! I'm sorry your w/e didn't go as planned, but getting in an hour on the elliptical is great work. Here's another prayer for your daughter and your family.
