Well much to my surprise the scales show about 189 this morning. It kind of hovered between 189 and 199. It's not as good as I could have done, but still so happy to see the 180 area! I can't believe it.
I'm taking a comp day today and my friend and I are going shopping for a dress for my daughters wedding. I'm really not looking forward to trying on clothes. I hope I find something that looks good. I wish I would have started dieting much earlier, but still 19 lbs. isn't bad. I guess I'm just nervous.
Yesterday was our churches homcoming Sunday and of course we had pot luck. It wasn't terribly hard. I've been eating about what I want, trying to stay with more veggies and salads. Just eating much less. But two people brought cake with my name on it. Three I guess. One guy, he's like a grandpa, his wife is in the hospital. He came in with a piece of cake on a plate, fork and napkins in a zip lock. He handed it to me with a great big smile and said that a niece had a baby shower at the hospital so that his wife could be there and he brought me cake. He wasn't doing it to be mean, he doesn't have a clue that I'm trying to lose. He just thought of me. I was so touched. I made a big deal out of it and thanked him so much. Then another gal brought her famous "twinky cake" She know's that is one of my favorites... She made sure to tell me several times. So I made a big deal out of that too. THEN another gal brought a beautiful german chocolate cake and gave it to me. I don't know what the deal was with cake yesterday but it's nice that people like me I guess. So I made sure they saw me with cake on my plates. It made them so happy. I was able to take just a little bite from each and I snuck the rest in the trash. I brought my zipped locked cake home. I had a little of that last evening. If Dale doesn't eat it I will have to throw it away. I thought about why they thought about me. I'm really going to start watching how I'm eating. It sure opened my eyes. That's a good thing.
My friend at work has lost 203.6 lbs. She put it on face book last night. Wow! She is looking amazing. I keep telling her that she is my inspiration! She is awesome.
Okay, another beginning today. I can do this. Shopping with a great friend. Lots of fun today. I'm not going to stress. I'm going to try my hardest to just enjoy the day. GOD IS SOOOO GOOD!!!
