Will this be the last time I see my white capris?
Sunday, September 25, 2011
I did a little cleaning this morning and it felt good. My house has gotten out of order since I'm recovering from a back injury that limited my movements quite a bit, especially when it comes to cleaning. IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY! I pride myself on having a clean orderly environment. I don't go crazy with it though since I'm such a busy gal but I do like things neat. Anyhoo, I was putting up some summer clothes this morn and couldn't help but think that when it's time to pull summer clothes back out next year, I won't be able to fit these clothes again. So I said goodbye to the new brown sheer ruffled blouse I bought this summer when it was 100 degrees in my town. I said so long to two pairs of white capris as they entered the storage bin. I even grieved a little as I put up some of my new tanks. OH WELL! I'll just buy some new clothes next year and feel free in the new size that I will be in when summer arrives next year.
To help get me there I rejoined Weight Watchers in person meetings yesterday. I've had a love/hate relationship with them for many years but I know I do better when I have to get my butt up on their scale. There's just something about it even though it's just you and the receptionist. Luckily I've never had a bad experience with one of them at the weight counter but there still is a sense of hmm, she went up, well at least that's the way I hear the story in my head. So far so good. It's only been 27 hours but one can do a lot of unhealthy damage in 27 hours! Of course I had to get on my scale this morning and I have seen a lost already. I know, I know, it's just water weight! But that is a good thing. I've always been one to drink water but I've gotten bad about that and taking my meds recently so this is all a great refresh for me.
I also had a visit with my doctor the other day and the bloodwork was a mixed review. We learned that the results were not so good in several key areas so I will have to take medicine and injections to help boost my system. Nothing major but definitely cause for alarm and pause. All it is is another sign for me to get my act together. Physical therapy is going well and in about a month I will be able to start slowly back in an unsupervised exercise program-hopefully. Until then I will take my time, don't over do it, and count my points and stay on program!
