Mom's Day

Sunday, May 12, 2013

Today is church. I'm gonna wear the same dress I wore on EAster day (see info page of my Spark Page for photo)....I'm hoping that it will be a lot looser on me today than it was on Easter....It should be since I"m 17 pounds down from then. That dress is one reason I'm kind of sad to lose weight. I like it a lot and it was really expensive. (I almost wrote "expansive"---it was that too!!) Maybe I can still wear it if I get a belt that I can wear around it. I don't know.

Mom's Day. My husband gave me a Kitchen Aid high powered blender which I am loving. It is wonderful. I wish I could be with my mom today --she only lives an hour away but I don't drive and don't have a ride. My husband is working today. I will have to content myself by working on the couch pillow I'm knitting for her instead.

My daughter said she will clean up the kitchen for me today which will be greatly appreciated as yesterday's dishes are all piled in the sink.

I weighed myself today because Sunday is my usual weight day. I wish I wouldn't have. I gained two pounds back from the other day' s low. It seems to go like this. Lose four. regain two. Lose four. Regain two. At least it is a downward trend. I just wish it would go STRAIGHT down without backtracking.

Last night I made Cuban Beans which was a Fuhrman recipe and it was delicious. Simple but so good. I don't know what's on tap for tonight. There's no money available to eat out and with this diet, eating out becomes a real challenge. If I'm going to eat a salad , I might as well eat it at home. That way I can at least control what goes into the dressing .

Today after church they are having a food fellowship. I"m bringing a box of donuts which is completely hypocritical of me. And I'm bringing an orange for myself to eat since there will probably not be anything I can eat. I would like to bring something healthy to eat....but it's too expensive to make somethign that will feed a lot of people Can't do it. I guess I could have made a lentil bulghur salad. shoot. Didn't think of it in time. Well, next time I will do that.

Here's a happy mom's day wish to all you mothers. God bless you and never forget to pray for your kids.

    Happy Mothers Day Darling .. I so agree with Linda .. We are burdened with child bearing hips and the results of giving birth . Don't worry about the yoyo affect . This will pass and you will start losing weight more conventually.

    Happy Mother's Day! Way to resist!
    Please don't stress out at your roller coaster weight loss ride. I had the same thing happen too. Its perfectly normal. Your body is resisting efforts to lose weight. Women were designed to carry extra fat to nourish new life. its our curse. That is why we struggle to get off the poundage on our hips, butt and pot belly -favorite storage areas for our bodies. Just as you say, the trend is downward, you are doing fine!!
