A New Beginning

Sunday, May 26, 2013

Well this morning the scale bounced between 201 and 202 landing squarely on 202.0 ...And that looks like it's been unchanged but the fact is that I'd gone back up to 205 and lost those three pounds yet again. So now is a critical time It is a time to press ahead and move down the scale yet further. NOT a time to regain. I measured myself this morning and the results were rather disappointing. Most things were unchanged but I lost a half inch in my waist. I gained an inch in my upper arm. Don't know why.

Today I had promised myself a good workout but I am feeling really tired and just lazy this morning. I don't know. Maybe I will yet get downstairs and do some work. But for now I'm just sitting here growing roots.

I had a terrible night last night.. I won't go into why....just suffice it to say that it took every bit of energy I had ot get through it....and now I'm feeling drained and flat. Maybe my DD and I will go for a walk today. It is bright and sunny and cool outside. Good walking weather.

Tomorrow is DD's birthday. 21 years old. couldn't PAY me to be that age again. For me my 20's were sheer hell. I pray they will be better for her. I think today I will make the creamy lentil soup. I juiced the carrots yesterday that I will need for this dish. It sounds really good. Then tomorrow is the infamous ziti and ice cream cake. I'm looking forward to it....but not unduly. I sort of don't want to have any because I'm in such a perilous spot with my weight...ready to move ahead....don't want to have to go back over that territory again. I think I will just have a piece of the ice cream cake and skip the ziti. I will have a salad and maybe some leftover lentil soup. That way I should avoid regaining any weight.

So this is a new beginning for me. I"m at the lowest weight I've been at for maybe two years. Ready to move ahead. To stick with the program and to keep on keeping on. Time to take new ground. I can do this. Today I am feeling more certain of that than I was yesterday.

I wish a lovely Sunday for all you Sparkers....Don't give up the fight. Don't quit just before the miracle happens.

    Sorry you had the rough night emoticon
    I too think you should do the ziti instead of the cake for better nutrition. My 20's were pure hell -that was when I was diagnosed with adult onset RA and the end of my independence and pain free life as I knew it (disease went into remission at age 11 until 23 -they didn't expect it to come back frankly) Been slowly sliding into the abyss of losing mobility piece by piece (you know what that is like)
    I hope your daughter's life turns out much better. She has a chance at a new start.
    Feel better soon,

    Hate that you had a rough night...hope today went a little better. Happy birthday to your daughter. I pretty much enjoyed my's my 40s I don't want to relive! But, in all honesty, we don't have to worry about reliving any of it, do we?

    Taking those first steps are the hardest.....but if it is a pretty day outside, open that door and start a short walk. If it turns into a longer one good....but every step counts! emoticon Hugs, Laurel

    emoticon I thought the cake was a "ziti (and) ice-cream cake" and I was thinking yuck! And, it seems to me that if you're going to skip anything, maybe it should be the ice-cream cake. What kind of pasta do you use for the ziti? If it's whole-grain, it's bound to be healthier and much more satisfying than the cake.

    emoticon to your daughter. I was a mess at 21 also and didn't really get it together until my 40s! I hope your daughter doesn't have to wait that long!

    Take care.
