Well today was the 70's group class reunion (70-79) and last night and tonight my "Class of '75" was having a private gatherings just for our class. I started my weight loss journey in January long before I knew they were having our class reunion this July so after I found that out I really wanted to meet my goal of losing 50 pounds and looking super hot to go to our reunion.
I didn't reach my goal, I only got 1/2 way and I was so disappointed I didn't "pre-register" to go because I didn't feel like I may want to go now.
I decided to go to the 70's group class reunion(bigger crowd) and got to thinking HEY you look better and feel better than you did in January! Go and be proud of how you look and wear your favorite things and so I did.
One thing I didn't realize was unless you were "pre-registered" which the paper I got didn't say you had to pre-register, you weren't allowed to eat the meal! I said I wanted to pay for a meal at the event they said no. I had 50 grams of cereal and 4 oz of 2% milk at 7 am and then NOTHING until after I left at 5 pm. They also took away the water! I had taken a drink bottle of water with ice but I had drank that and then filled the bottle there and then it was gone! They took the the large container of water away!
It was about 3 pm I wasn't feeling well, it was hot (95 degrees) and humid, I had nothing to drink, nothing to eat and was feeling light headed and dizzy, in fact, I really thought if I didn't sit down I may fall down.
I did have several classmates say I looked really good and I haven't changed in 35 years (liars LOL ) a former boyfriend hung around me for awhile and said I looked great! hmmmmm him not so much! what did I see in this guy? LOL
I left because I felt I was dehydrated and was still feeling ill, I stopped at the first place I could to get something to drink and eat! ok so it wasn't the healthiest food, it was pizza hut but after not eating anything since those 50 grams of cereal those calories didn't kill me. It took awhile though before I started to feel better.
I guess I was still glad that I went to the group class reunion even though I hadn't made my goal of losing 50 pounds. They took a group photo that is about a foot long and I'm right in front. But here's my photo from today....
I'm only half way on my journey, but I also need to be proud of what I've accomplished so far and I think by going today I know I'm a better person.
