Day 6 - May 4 - Saturday

Saturday, May 04, 2013

Well, even though I kind of had some bad moments, I got on the scale and was 235.4. That isn't a ton down, but it IS down. That's always a good thing!

Took the dog to the dog park which is REALLY good for me and for the dog...and my daughter. The park is 16 acres and, as of now, I can walk around the whole thing without my cane. By 3/4 of the way, my back is burning, but the more I walk it, the longer it takes to get to the point where it hurts. Thus, I can only assume that my back is beginning to get a bit stronger. Again, always a good thing! (Oh, I had stenosis and the doctors had to "roto rooter" the spine area so I could actually move, walk, not lay around all day. That part healed up quite the arthritis has set in pretty good. Losing weight would be a big help.)

I also added some more photos to my collection. Not a ton as spring hasn't seem to have "popped" by us yet, but I hope that will happen soon too. I am working on a 5th CD of original music inspired by Colorado, and I'd really like some great photos for the booklet. I just have to be patient. Now, why can I be patient for this stuff, but not for the weight? Why is losing weight so darn hard? Why does food have to taste so good when you're in a funk? Heck, it tastes good when you're NOT in a funk!! You know, if food didn't taste so good, I'll bet no one would be fat...anywhere.

So, guess that's it for the day. I'm on a roll. I've signed in, kept a record of my foods eaten (maybe not as great as I'd like), I've blogged daily and I seem to actually enjoy far...lets see where I end up next week... emoticon

    Keep up the good work! I wrote on your SparkPage -- we have a lot in common! I most definitely do better when I make sure I check in here on Spark, do my blog, and read others' success stories!

    Good Luck as you take on the journey!
