Change....

Well my daughter called me last night and said that the house down the street from her is for sale. For a killer price. I have never owned a home, and the thoughts of the process really frighten me. I HATE change. I moved last year into a nicer townhouse, but still haven't even hung pictures. It doesn't feel like home and I hate the stairs. So I think that I am going to try to do this. I am kind of excited! I will have to set up some ground rules with my daughter so we don't drive each crazy, but I think this could work! I am going to call my friend and get the ball rolling. I know that I can count on my kid's to help me thru this process. I really am scared, but you know what, I am going to try anyway. What's the worst that could happen, I can't get a loan? Ok, but at least I tried.

In weight watcher news, I had a pretty good weekend. Busy! I walked Friday and Saturday, skipped yesterday and will walk on the treadclimber this morning. Last chance workout before I weigh in tonight. I was not stellar in my eating, but I did ok. My daughter had dinner at her house and she didn't put a glaze on the ham, and had weight watcher recipes for the green bean casserole and I didn't even eat a roll. No candy either. I did love the strawaberry shortcake I made for everyone. Low cal, low fat!! I didn't over eat, but felt full. I kind of over did it throughout the week, and I know that, but it's ok, and whatever the scale says, well, that will be ok too. I was thinking this weekend how much easier it is for me to move just since I've lost the 23 lbs. It is amazing to me. I really missed walking yesterday too.

I have been looking for a goal. Something big, but attainable. Other then weight loss of, I think I will try for the house! Face this fear! Better get to work.....and drinking my water. I really am thirsty today from all the salt yesterday.

  2. I hope the house works out and you have a good attitude whether the house works out or not. I always ask myself the same thing, what's the worse can happen?

  3. Good for you! I hope it all works out for you. Congratulations on facing the scary stuff and going right on ahead with it! As others have said, "What's the worst that can happen?" The mortgage folks can't kill you!

  9. Lets try this again! Not freaking out because your eating has been off is good! We all have to go along with the ebb and flow of life.Theres good days and bad, good weeks and bad weeks. We just have to keep it in perspective.And i think your doing a good job of that. Reguardless of your eating i hope the scale reflects your hard work this week. Keep your chin up Jinx!
