A New Beginning
Sunday, May 26, 2013
Well this morning the scale bounced between 201 and 202 landing squarely on 202.0 ...And that looks like it's been unchanged but the fact is that I'd gone back up to 205 and lost those three pounds yet again. So now is a critical time It is a time to press ahead and move down the scale yet further. NOT a time to regain. I measured myself this morning and the results were rather disappointing. Most things were unchanged but I lost a half inch in my waist. I gained an inch in my upper arm. Don't know why.
Today I had promised myself a good workout but I am feeling really tired and just lazy this morning. I don't know. Maybe I will yet get downstairs and do some work. But for now I'm just sitting here growing roots.
I had a terrible night last night.. I won't go into why....just suffice it to say that it took every bit of energy I had ot get through it....and now I'm feeling drained and flat. Maybe my DD and I will go for a walk today. It is bright and sunny and cool outside. Good walking weather.
Tomorrow is DD's birthday. 21 years old. WOW...you couldn't PAY me to be that age again. For me my 20's were sheer hell. I pray they will be better for her. I think today I will make the creamy lentil soup. I juiced the carrots yesterday that I will need for this dish. It sounds really good. Then tomorrow is the infamous ziti and ice cream cake. I'm looking forward to it....but not unduly. I sort of don't want to have any because I'm in such a perilous spot with my weight...ready to move ahead....don't want to have to go back over that territory again. I think I will just have a piece of the ice cream cake and skip the ziti. I will have a salad and maybe some leftover lentil soup. That way I should avoid regaining any weight.
So this is a new beginning for me. I"m at the lowest weight I've been at for maybe two years. Ready to move ahead. To stick with the program and to keep on keeping on. Time to take new ground. I can do this. Today I am feeling more certain of that than I was yesterday.
I wish a lovely Sunday for all you Sparkers....Don't give up the fight. Don't quit just before the miracle happens.
