I’m feeling really homesick this weekend so I’m going to post some pictures of home, just for me:
I’m really missing New Mexico. If it rains one more day here in WA, I’m going to melt.
Today I weight 235. I had a 3 pound loss this week, something I haven’t experience for quite awhile; I attribute it to the fact that I added a lot more vegetables to my diet and more closely watched my grains this week.
BMI has gone from 43% to 35.7%, I’ve lost 17% of my overall body weight and I’ve gone from a size 22 to: yesterday I had to buy an outfit for a wedding we’re attending on Monday night, I bought a skirt, top and cardigan in size 16-18 which was just great. I feel pretty for the first time in about 10 years. I”m really happy and proud of how I’m taking control and responsibility for my own health. I’m at 48 pounds lost now, I’m hoping to hit that 50 pound mark by next Sunday.
I’m sort of glad only a handful of people wander by my blog every day. I’m not a-laugh-a-minute and I’m not snarky. I’m probably not even interesting, but I do my best thinking and planning by writing; writing is how I clarify what’s going on in my own mind. So really, I don’t need to be hilarious or bawdy or deeply intellectual because seriously, I entertain me by just being boring old me. And really, this is for me…I just like to remind myself of that. I’m quite sure that some of my views are not at ALL what people want to hear. I can be extremely focused and I don’t brook any nonsense when I’m serious about something…that’s not exactly a popular stance now, is it? But it works for me. I’ve always been able to achieve amazing things when I do things my way. It’s not the popular way, to be sure.
