Sorry to not have blogged in such a long time again. I tell you, my life feels like its just way too busy & when I get home, I am exhausted! I am an RN in the Recovery Room at an ambulatory surgery center & I LOVE my job but it is very physically demanding & at the end of an 8 hr day, I'm whooped! I worked in the Pre- Op unit yesterday (Fri) & can I just tell you, it was chaos!!! OMG!! No sitting down whatsoever & super busy! I did get to leave at 2:45 instead of 3:30pm which was a bonus but I went home & collapsed & my feet were in misery. (sigh) I'm not a "young pup" anymore .
I don't think that I have posted in over a week (I know, I know, I'm sorry!!!) & last Sat at weigh in I had a small gain of .6. It wasn't justified as I had a great week & I even exercised. The best part was, I didn't get mad or discouraged. I just took the "hit" & moved forward & I am happy to report that this week, I lost 1.4# & am at my lowest weight yet of 176.6!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am 26.4# away from goal!!!! Can you believe it???!! I am so excited to see that there is a pot of gold waiting for me at the end of the rainbow! My size 14 Levis that I bought at a consignment store a couple of weeks ago are getting looser on me and I cant wait to go out & buy a pr of size 12s. Now THAT girls is gonna be a day when I will be doing the "happy dance"! My sister got back from France on Tues of this week & she LOST 3.8#!!!! Isn't that awesome?! She is in a new decade of weight & she is looking so good! I am so proud of her & so excited for her too. I think it really gave her the boost she needed to get started losing again. She said they did very little snacking between meals & did alot of walking. She said the people in France are thin & they don't eat junk food. I think that all the processed food we have access to in the states is one of the biggest problems that America has. All that crap not only makes us feel like crap but it makes us look like crap! Good things in = good things out! I am going to try to eat more whole foods this week & exercise more & see what happens. I have given mys sister almost all of my 1x clothes that don't fit and I just gave her a leather coat that is too big for me to wear now. I had a smaller leather that I bought (on sale) but was never able to wear because it was too tight but now, it fits like a glove! I feel so wonderful! Anybody who says they are happy being fat is a BIG FAT LIAR because there is NO BETTER FEELING than the feeling of losing weight. We took a 2 1/2 mile walk at the local High school track tonite as it was a sunny beautiful crisp fall day,. Tomorrow is supposed to be just as nice & even warmer so I plan to walk some more. Rose is going to jazzercise at 7:30 am. We have church at 10am & I just wouldn't have the time to shower & be ready in time so I am not going.
I ordered the Natures Hollow preserves in Raspberry & Mountain Berry as well as some of the coconut flour too. I cant wait til they arrive, especially the jam.
Well, that's all that's been happening with me. I am going to try to catch up with the blogs over the weekend to get myself back in the loop.
Miss you all & hope you are having a great skinny day!!!!
Hugs to all~
