Happy 4th of July everyone…& happy Independence Day to all the groovy American 3FCers!
I think hubby & I have decided to be recluses today too, just like our girl Periwinkle who is apparently happy to return to her quiet runner’s life after a too-social party. Amen to that!
Feathers is thinking of having gastric banding surgery & wonders if we think she’d be “copping out” if she did. I guess the awful Puritan dieting mentality is alive in well in Australia too! Feathers, dear, I say do whatever you think is right for you. As you say, there is no magic pill, but by golly, if there were, we’d all take it in a heart beat & never look back! If this surgery will get you where you want to be & help you live longer & happier, I think you should go for it.
eryn’s back from her trip to Rochester & promising an update. And brseay got bold & stepped on the scale…good news, although she’s apparently not prepared to be corny about this news & declare her own “freedom from fat.”
Apparently Josephine declared her independence from restrictive races…ran an official 5K only to extend it a wee bit (a wee bit much more, that is) to a 5-miler. Honestly, where do ya’ll get your motivation? She’s got a fabulous picture of herself up with this post, which is motivating me to get out & move my fat @$$.
All this running is paying off for tiny2b too! She’s down a pound &, I hope, recovering from her oldest daughter’s (and only granddaughter’s) move.
Getupnow managed to get a nice run in & she’s still losing steady despite all the family stress and worry of the last week. & she’s holding up so very much better than I would under the same circumstances.
Ya’ll rock! I swear, there’s no better motivation for me than reading your blogs…stepping on the scale: mildly motivating sometimes; having my clothes hang a little looser: motivating; feeling stronger & healthier: pretty dern motivating; but reading about your lives & your successes is pretty incredibly motivating! Guess I better motivate myself right out of here & start moving.
Have a safe & happy day!
