Today my friend is taking me out to do my Black Friday shopping. I know. It's Saturday. But we figured that maneuvering my wheelchair would be much easier if the crowds are smaller. My friend also went out on Black Friday, leaving at midnight on Thanksgiving. IF you ask me there's some kind of insanity involved there. STill. It did sound kind of fun to be shopping in the wee hours of the night.

Nonetheless I'm grateful to be going at all.....so today is just fine. My daughter and her man came on Thanksgiving and we did our traditional run to a Japanese Restaurant where they had sushi and tempura and I had crab rangoon and salmon teryaki. DELICIOUS! I have to say it was better than a turkey dinner would have been although I had been a little sad about missing the turkey.

Then we went to see the movie, LIncoln, which was amazing. If you ask us, it is headed for the Oscars. All in all , it was a very nice day, even though I started out the day with my head in the toilet puking up my guts. I think that was a result of the Enbrel, a drug I take for my psoriatic arthritis. When I took it in the past I was often to succumb to random bouts of vomiting. Not fun.

Today I am hurting. I am hoping this pain abates as the day ages. I can't even see the knuckles on my right hand, it is so swollen. OH well. I will try to focus on the fun and ignore the pain that wants me screaming.

Christmas is coming in earnest. I find it hard to believe that. Good news is that I am almost completely done with Christmas shopping.
Two days ago I weighed myself. I had been ignoring food issues. NOt measuring or even watching what I ate. And found I"d lost another two pounds.

Well I've got to go and get into the shower.
Have yourselves a great Saturday!

    Congrats on the weight loss, and I hope you were able to really enjoy your day out shopping! You are much braver than I am--I avoid post-Thanksgiving shopping at all costs ;)

    Love it when the pounds still drop when you aren't keeping your eating in check! Makes you feel like you have accomplished something, doesn't it? Your body still burns calories and fat off your body despite yourself!

    THAT sounds like your body is accepting of your "lifestyle change" finally!

    I am getting my first fruit in for the day... and apple, which was a "cull" at the farmers market. It is so soft and was bought to make apple pies, but 3 didn't get used, so I am eating them as I love SOFT apples!

    Have fun shopping today. And feel free to run over the toes that get in your way!!
