I am so happy, I got my PC back at home. I had to have it fixed. (stupid virus). I had to track my nutrition with my phone, and that is hard for me cuz I am still learning my phone. It gave me good practice. I wonder if I will ever learn it completely, LOL.
This week went well I only lost ounces, but it is still a loss. I had to go to the comp doctor at work, I had popped a tendon out on my lower back..Ouch! But when they weighed me their scales were even less than what we are using at work for the contest, I loved that feeling, but am not holding to that. I am still in the top 5 loosers at work. The group is getting discouraged a little and I see them eating out and eating cakes, I have done that too once or twice myself, but I am still motivated through spark and all my new friends here.
My husband, who is my biggest support, has been eating the same foods I have been. Now, I see him as a skinny man (32" waist) but he stepped on the scale the other day and was at 200 WOW! He was a little disappointed with himself, but I explained we are all different, and his job is very physical more so than mine. So his activity bodes different with his body. (He is so cute sometimes. I just love him to pieces.) At my job I average walking 4 miles per day, and I sit at my desk charting, ordering, writing and etc. Much different. He is constantly moving, twisting, and lifting heavy lumber so he does get a lot more physical in than I do, and is also more solid than I am. I can shake my flab, he cant. Ha Ha Ha.
All in all he tells me everyday that he is proud of me, and I have noticed more people are noticing my loss. I pray I can keep up with this lifestyle change for myself and for him. I know he loves me just as I am, but I am proud of him for his change too. It is healthly for both of us. I am so happy that I have someone like him to encourage me when I am down and motivates me on what is important to me.
So I guess that is my blog for today. I hope this lifts anyone up, or helps them realize that there are people in our lives who are there for us whether through spark, work, or at home. Discouragement I believe comes from a choice, we can let it run us or we can battle with it, or just plain refuse it. I am trying to learn that third one....I use to let it run me.
