first snow and other rumbling ;)

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

we had our first snow of the year this morning. it was wonderful to get out to this sparkling white fluff, with the mild temperatures it wasn't as bad to clean the snow of the car, and with me going for 6am there was not traffic on the road at all :)
today I am a bit tired. had a busy day at work, food wise I am good, looking forward to my next weigh in, although I do my daily picks now just to keep a finger on the pulse so to speak - I really don't want to get too comfortable now and gain all back. I think what really scares me about the whole process is the maintenance, getting rid of the weight is not so difficult, people achieve it all the time, but there is not that many people who can say they have maintained it for years. so today the scale have shown another pound down, making a total of 37lbs. I could not imagine now picking a 37 lbs bag, say of sugar, and carrying it with me all the time, every day, doing all my daily activities. I honestly cannot imagine how hard on me it had to have been to have all this weight on my body, no wonder I was constantly tired!
We celebrated Thanksgiving in Canada a month and a half ago, but I am grateful today for what I have learned with spark people, for the friends I have made and progress I have achieved.

    A belated Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you. I've lost weight before and put it back on, but never have I done it with so much wonderful support and encouragement. This time I just know it will be different: I'll get all the way to my goal and maintain it! WE CAN DO IT! emoticon

    Thinking about an item like the sugar sure does make one think about the extra weight.

    Brings the accomplishment into perspective. For me, today... I am at 20 lbs gone. The thing is with the maintenance. You are right... Maintaining is hard. This is the second time around for me. I lost 35 pounds in 07-08 and put almost all of it back on. I am taking it off a second time.
