Weigh In

I weighed in this morning and I lost one more pound. My total is 18 lbs gone. In the past I would have been upset with just losing 1 lb but I am a new woman. I understand that with my age that it is going to come off slowly. I am learning from all the wonderful ladies in j-land about making small goals for myself. I know I have said this before but I want to say it again, thank you ladies for being my inspiration. When I read your journals I know I can do it. I didn't get mad at myself this morning for having half of a glazed donut last night when I got so frustrated and mad and went downstairs to find something bad to eat. I am still learning about myself and my eating habits.

We have done nothing but swim like crazy the last few days. I am in my glory. I love the water since I am a Pisces girl. lol My daughter and I are so tan already. I am going to call my neighbor in a few minutes and ask if we can go swimming again today. He said he had a party to today and it is going to be about 94 degrees so I figured he won't care. I take his dog in the pool with us to keep him company whenever we go swimming in his pool.

Well, my daughter is behind me saying she needs to use the phone. I just want to wish Melissa at   Melissa's Motivation  good luck with the marathon. One day I hope to be able to join you in a run.

Congrats on losing another pound! Keep up the good work with the swimming! I had planned on a pool day today after lunch but it got all cloudy and looks like rain is on the way -- typical in Florida this time of year. Have fun in the sun today! Martha :-)

You have a great attitude.  Any loss is reason to celebrate.  Keep on going.  18 lbs gone.  Just look at that amount and that is your inspiration to not give up.
