Good Morning to all my dear friends!
I was excited to see that I have 40 followers now...yay! Guess I better start writing more often and share some inspiring stuff now.
Life has been good but so busy & I just feel exhausted these days! I've been so tired lately & not sure why. Perhaps the fact that its getting dark earlier could be factoring into the equation. My WW leader Pam suggested a product that she uses (and sells) called "greens". It is from the "It Works" product line and it is the nutritional equivalent of 8 servings of fruits & vegetables. She said it has really helped her in the energy dept. I read the ingredients & there is nothing in it that would interfere with what I currently take medication wise, it looks like all natural ingredients, so I decided to give it a try. Pam is like the energizer bunny & will work a full day as a teacher, then either teaches a WW class in the evening or goes to jazzercise. I want that kind of energy....I'm only 45 & shes 58. You add this powder to a bottle of water or to any drink of your choice & use it 2x day. I will keep you posted on how I feel. My order is on its way & I am anxious to start taking it. Not sure if it has any sugar in it for my BFC buddies, but I can check on that too if you are interested in knowing.
I am feeling really great lately & I think its because of the almost 42# that are gone from my body. It is amazing to me how much better I feel about myself. I LOVE the fact that I no longer have to wear anything from the Women's Dept and I no longer have a "W" after my size. Its a good feeling to go clothes shopping and I cant wait until I will be sporting a size 12...and then a 10, and maybe, just maybe even an 8!!! Its really a stretch to think of being in an 8 but Rosalie & Amber did it so why cant I??? My ultimate goal was 150 but I think I want to go a bit lower than that. Right now, I am focused on 150 and when I get there, I plan to evaluate where I am size wise & go from there. 150 is the upper end of my goal weight & I would like to have some wiggle room. I was talking with my hubby last night & we were discussing my upcoming surgery next fall to have my scar removed/tummy tuck. He said he supports me 100% in whatever I decide to do. I told him I want to know what it feels like to live in a thin body because I have never known that feeling. I think that's why I don't want to stop at 150. I'm short, only about 5'4 1/2" so I don't have height on my side. It will be interesting to see what I look like when I lose these next 27#.
Yesterday at work, one of my co workers brought in these heavenly cookies that she makes. They are almond flavored with a raspberry jam in the center & a glaze drizzled on top. There was one left & she asked me if I wanted it...I told her no thanks. She made the comment that I have great will power. I told her that losing weight is more important to me than that cookie. That is a change in thinking for me & it has taken me a long time to get to this point in my life because before, I would have eaten it without thinking about it whether I was on a diet or not. Progress, for sure!
Well girls, I'm done rambling. Thanks for listening!
((Hugs)) to all!!
