I thought I was cheating, but I guess not! WooHoo!

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

So, we had settlement at our new home, 2 weeks ago. But tomorrow is when all the heavy stuff gets moved in by the younger, stronger guys who get paid, LOL.... But for the last 6 weeks I have been packing, unpacking. loading, and unloading basically everyday.

I feel "fatter" than before all this moving started. I haven't been on a scale in 6 weeks. And today I was AFRAID to get on a scale, fearing the worst, but I made myself get on....

WooHoo! Down to 282.

I've been incredibly worn out and listless for these last few weeks. I guess it is old age and diabetes raging their ugly heads. Plus all the work of course. But I was feeling like I was eating nothing but what I shouldn't be. LOTS of CARBS..... bad for diabetics, but the fridge is at my old house until tomorrow, and carbs is pretty much all we have at the new house so far, so that is what I have been eating. Plus, I / we have been eating out a lot because no fridge here yet.... and I'm not the guy who will order salads at a restaurant, though I eat them often at home.

Also, my Apple computer is still at the other house, or I would have made a video blog. Hopefully I have that up here and running by the weekend.

I am pleasantly surprised by weight loss. I really expected at least a 5 pound gain. I'll take it and run!

Looking forward to getting back on plan. And working out again.

Miss you all!
