No, I'm not overweight at all. I'm right in the middle of a healthy weight range. However, I was much lower and stayed that way for a couple of years (118-120). I'm happiest under 125. At or above 130, my clothes are very tight and I have some problem areas (I was 131.2 today).
I decided to be in a good mood today regardless. It's funny that I can decide that and make it happen. I've been cheerfully telling people hello and complimenting coworkers. Seems to be working!
I'm happy too that dh is returning from China today. Part of my black mood was/is frustration that I try to work on my weight (supposedly) when dh is gone so when he comes home I can relax a bit with him. Obviously, I made zero headway this trip. Oh well. There are definitely more important things in life.
