I don't want to be patient.  I'm at 401 and have been for two weeks now.  When will my body catch up to my brain and get under that dang number already?  I'm sure there are many technical reasons why my body is taking it's sweet time, but to be quite honest, I don't give a crap!  I have been watching my portions, drinking my water, working out even though I have a partial tear to my left ankle tendon and I want to see some results.  I can totally see why people give up.  I won't give up, I would like to some days but getting through the bad days is where the prize lies.  I must carry on and hope that next Thursday, the scale is kind to me.

Post 4th of July!

I had a really good 4th. I managed to stay active.  I even tossed the football around at the river, I had forgotten that I could spiral it pretty good.  I played a little volleyball, without moving too much because I am nursing a partial tendon tear on my ankle.  Then there were the horseshoes, very fun, even if I didn't score at all.  It felt really good to be with friends that didn't judge me for my size and didn't make me feel out of place.  After my 402 weigh in I had a 3 pound gain.  I'm sure it was from just eating a bit too much over the Holiday so I'm not beating myself up about it.  I hope to have a loss this week and have been watching my portions.  Summer is always hard on me because I am already insulated and any heat is miserable for me.  Hard to run errands, sleep, just function in general.  Once my weight is down some more, that won't be such an issue.  Have a great week people....................................

Almost there!

By some small miracle, I have finally made it to 402!  I am totally holding my breath right now too.  I have been on such a roller coaster ride lately.  I have been really concentrating on my portion sizes and that seems to be what I'm needing right now.  I am pretty sure that my stomach has shrunk too. I was enjoying a piece of pizza with a friend and she handed me another one.  I couldn't eat it, I didn't even try. I was satisfied with the one piece.  In the past I would have had 6.  I'm amazed that I can see the changes in my face. Little things like that give me strength to keep on keepin on..........
