Good Morning to all my friends!!
I havent blogged in a few days...just havent been inspired to say anything. How pathetic, huh? Im not feeling any thinner, I was on the scale yest & it said I was down...got on this morning...up 2#!!!!What gives??!! Tired of eating the same things & have bended the rules a bit over the past week. Im so tired of this being such a struggle. Why cant this be just a little bit easier for me?? Why do I always have to work 10x harder than anyone else to lose a pound? I just dont get it. Perhaps Im just having a bit of a pity party here....perhaps. But its how I feel. All I want is to get into the 190s by the end of the year. Its 8# away. What is wrong with me? I do have an underactive thyroid but I take synthroid & I had my bloodwork done 4 months ago. I dont think its that. I havent been exercising much because the heels hurt so much, but many have lost without exercising at all. So I just dont know. Im just frustrated.
Ok, Im done now. So its Thanksgiving. One of my most favorite holidays...not because of the wonderful food, but because of the meaning & the joining of family. I love that! I made some pumpkin custard & I am gonna enjoy a piece of it later tonight. It is made like pumpkin pie but has no crust & you make it with sugar substitute & fat free evaporated milk. It has some sugars in it, but I want the experience of having a slice of pumpkin pie today. It will be good for the soul!! Just took them out of the oven...they smell wonderful! My mom is making a wonderful dinner & I made my 7 layer salad to take also. I am going to have turkey, a little stuffing to taste, a little mashed potatoes & some salad & green beans & a small pc of pumpkin custard for dessert.Thats my menu & Im sticking to it. We decided to scale back on the dinner this year because my sister & I are trying to lose weight so it should be manageable. I am headed to the gym to work out too. My feet are only moderately sore today so I am gonna get 1/2 in on the elliptical. I need to go. It will make me feel better.
I do hope each one of you have a wonderful thanksgiving!! What a great sisterhood we have & I am thankful to each one of you...Rosalie, Diana, Minichick, Kasey, Susan, Lindsey & Lisa (and if I missed anyone else...you too!!) for always being there to offer kind words and support in this journey. I promise I wont stay away a long time again!! Enjoy this wonderful day with your families and know that I am thankful for my BFC sister family!!!!
Love to all!!!
