Oh Happy Friday…..I’ve not been on my blog for a while.
I told myself that I would not post again until I hit my first “20 Pounds” lost, and today was the magical day. “can you tell I’m just a little excited about it”?
I’ve not seen these numbers on my scale in a little over two years, so I’m pretty stoked at the moment.
Part of me feels like it has taken “FOREVER” to loose this first 20 pounds. When in reality I know it has not been that long since I started. But in certain parts of my life, I have no patients at all, and I want to just wave that magical wand and “zap” me to my ideal weight.
Of course we all know that it took me years to destroy this body, what makes me think that it won’t take years of hard work to get it back to health again.
As with most people, I have good days and bad days….but I do admit that my good days outnumber my bad days by far. I think the days that scare me the most are the ones around special occasions. Like Valentines Day. Ugh….not that I have to worry to much about receiving chocolate from a loved one, but it’s more the fact that I buy little special surprises for my friends and family, and I love to bake special goodies. I’m trying to wrap my mind around not doing so much of that, but two days ago I failed.
Last week I purchased one of those tiny little boxes of Candy Hearts that have the cute little saying on them, for a friend. Really I was going to give them to a friend!!!
But two days ago I had the munchies so bad I thought I would never make it through the day. By late afternoon I said “Screw it”, and opened up that little box of candies and they were gone in two minutes flat. REALLY it was probably less time then that, but I want you to think I chewed my food first…HA
Well it was just enough to kill the munchies, and guilt me back into eating right again. Which brings me back to today and the first 20 pounds I’ve lost….. (I’d do a cartwheel, but I’m pretty sure I’d hurt myself.)
So wish me luck on my next 20 pounds, keep your fingers and toes crossed, rub your lucky rabbits foot and do lots of praying…for I need every little bit of help I can get to stay the course.
Have a great day, be healthy and love those around you.
