The Mall - First Time In A Decade

Saturday, August 20, 2011

I spent today out and about and then went walking through the mall. I was sweating so bad
my arms were all wet, it was intense and great. I have lunch at the mall, a 6inch chicken terriyaki(no sauce) with veggies and a med tea. The meal hit the spot then we walked more.
I really value getting a chance to get out of the house, and do something.

I ran out of most of the meds today, luckily for me I found a surplus of metaformin in one of my duffles to keep me on track for a few months. I have enough insulin for two more months and enough antibiotics for another week or two. I just need to get the smaller meds, though I should get paid this week.

Its weird you really do feel more alive eating clean. I ate my little sandwich and was done with it. I did not dwell on "more", and now a few hours later I feel hunger, real hunger and not the thirst this is SO COOL. This will sound insane though I almost feel like someone has given me a gift. My legs are a little lighter, my toes is cleared up a little, I can walk, and tonight I am going to Walmart to shop the outside isles.

I am even doing some upcoming work towards ink work on my shoulder, figure that is the one place where weight loss wont totally have a big effect. (smiles)

Man I love this feeling :)

    Doesn't it feel good to be doing something about your weight at last! I love it. Eating clean makes me feel so much better than when I used to gorge and feel stuffed constantly. I LOVE to shop. Today I went out to reward myself for getting down to my all-time lowest weight this morning (146.0! WOOHOO), and bought some new clothes. I went to Christopher & Banks, the Dress Barn, the craft store, Earl May (lawn care store to get grassseed for hubby), Shopko (discount department store) and the grocery store, before stopping for sandwiches on the way home. It was exhausting, plus I went for a 3.7 mile walk this morning, so my knees were hurting! But it felt great and was actually FUN! I found lots of pretty clothes, (size 10 jeans, size L blouses), got some good sales and thoroughly enjoyed treating myself. I figured I have earned it!! Sounds like you're on your way!! GO GO GO!!!
