Well first off let me tell you about my progress through this passage. As of Thursday I have officially become a magician and made40 pounds disappear!!! So far my mind set has been firm and I’m holding strong towards better eating practices and am striving towards the vanishing of the next 10 pounds. Determination (to the tune of Carly Simon’s Anticipation) is playing in my head. Hmm……. maybe I’ll rewrite those lyrics to go with my situation and the numerous other souls that are searching for a new body.
I am proud of myself. Not trying to boast or anything but I have had a couple hurdles this week that I have surmounted. I attended a meeting at a cafeteria style restuarant to which I packed and took my own food. They even heated it up for me. Then long story short, a friend will occassionally have a slumber party of adult females where there is a creative theme. Last night, as I am sitting on the couch between two ladies, reading through a script of a play my friend and another woman wrote, I discovered something. Guess what I found? My lap! What? Yep! Seriously. First off I was in a pair of jeans 2/3 sizes smaller – already – and I noticed all this extra space. The return of the lap! There were about 20 women all over the room in chairs and on the floor. One woman had to be, maybe, 100 pounds soakng wet. Unless I was maybe 3 and can’t remember, I do not have the recollection of ever being able to sit with my knees hugged to my chest. You know what I’m talking about right? Instead of having that anger towards seeing that, as in the past, it was actually a positive view of something else that I will be able to do. Eventually I will get there! Can’t wait to kiss my knees!
My energy level has increased and I’m attempting to do more and more every day. (Today was sleep after staying up late.) Move, move, move. I saw a friend a few days ago that is on maintenance after exceeding her weight loss goal. She was sooooo fidgety! Ironically, at a weight loss support group that I attend, there was an article read about a study that said you can fidget 500 calories away a day! Something to consider…… Rock your feet, your legs, tap your fingers and move.
Eat healthy, until next time……
