Woo Hoo! I Lost 50 Pounds

Tuesday, June 23, 2020

Today I reached an interim weight loss goal. I’ve lost 50 pounds! I am thrilled. I am also happy that I broke through a long plateau. I had been hovering around 47 pounds lost for 4 to 5 months. I am glad I preserved!

I have been doing WW. The program works for me.

I want to thank my spark friends and this community for being so supportive and helpful. I love the positive energy and positive messages. Lifestyle change is not easy for any of us; and all of us occasionally struggle with old cravings. But you all provide a Enthusiastic environment for getting right back on track.

I did a short walk this morning. I had planned to go longer, but it turned very hot very quickly. I am grateful for the outdoors experience anyway. The snow on the mountains is melting rapidly.

I continue to make progress on the massive job of cleaning out my garage. I am looking forward to making many too-large clothing donations to charity; some of the recycled stores reopened today and are taking donations again. But the line was around the block when I drove by the Humane Society thrift store; apparently lots of us spent the shut down cleaning out closets!

I stopped by to visit my friend Linda this afternoon; it is her 80th birthday. We were outside, more than 6 feet apart, and I wore a mask. The masks are much more uncomfortable on hot days like today! It was over 90Β°. But I did want to celebrate her mile stone birthday.
