Well I have GREAT news...I have been going down down down....slowly, but surely. Since May 2006 I am down 30 pounds (ok..slow but steady). I am ready to break another "10" mark, so that means I'm down another increment! I have been faithfully wearing my pedometer and happy to say I do at least 6,000 steps ONLY at work! So I'm moving my butt.
The man front (ahem) is moving along quite nicely. My guy friend and I are getting along and we'll just have to wait and see. Man I'm too old for this dating business. I just want to put my order in and take the man home you know! ha ha!
Cheers all and have a FANTASTIC week!!!
On a personal note, I am thrilled you all started a new thread. When they get that big it gets troublesome for me. So thank you Lafayette for starting a new one and Mary for kicking the tires and peeking under the hood.
It sounds as if you all are doing pretty well. YaY!!
INVU this incredible journey is so twisty and turny, its not all about the food we eat. I know for me a big Big part of it has been my relationship with food. The Why's and What for's. When journaling my food I would also add abbreviations next to things. IE; TOM, bordem, angry, sad, b-days, anni's, or simply a few ?? for the ones you dont know why, yet. It helped me to spot trends. Also knowledge is power... If I know what I instinctually reach for during these stages and phases. Them I am better able to handle them or find solutions for them.
My weekend is going wonderfully! I was hoping for a little alone time this weekend. ( For those of you new to the thread... I am a waitress with 3 children 14,12,10 from a previous marriage. Two daughters and a son.
All of them in different schools this years! We just finished a year long custody battle. Daily dealing with a EX-hubby from.. well we dont have to go there. My husband now, is currently in Austria while I try and set us up a home here. Perhaps in a year or two he will be able to join us.
) Anyhoo I was expecting a no kids weekend and feeling kind of guilty for it.
I didnt end up with alone time. Or the alone time I expected.
What I did end up with is alone time with my oldest, and I gotta tell ya.... Lovin it!
We've gone shopping and are doing lunch at our favorite chinese place today. Rented a couple of movies... yada yada nothing special but Oh So Special!!
And here is another bit HOO-RAH ( for me that is
I am officially into a size 10!!
Not talking the high rise go just a bit over the belly button area either... we are talking mid-rise bout an inch below the belly button!! Around my Paunch! And no muffin tops!!! HOO-RAH!! I was/am absolutely giddy!! Never did I dream when I started this journey ( again
) last October that I could possibly be into single digits by the time I end. WoW, thats still a mind blower to me.
I hope your weekends are going as great as mine!
