Happily surprised

I still manged a 1.4 lb loss last night at WW. I know it's the walking that is saving my butt. I will take the loss and will continue to improve my food choices and increase my H2O. I still don't drink enough water, and I love H2O. I went food shopping at Sprouts after the meeting and got some more waffles ( they really stayed with me yesterday morning ) and some pop chips, love those things. I also pick up some celery....I ate some at book club and it was so sweet, almost like candy. I am hoping that mine is as good. I bought a pricey watermelon last week and it was no good. I hate that. Waste of money!

No word on the houses yet. It's going to be a little bit longer of a process to find out. Both houses have a few bids. I am going out again tonight to look at another one. I am bound to be a home owner! I can wait. When I have a backyeard I am going to have a garden. I am feeling better and better about moving. Not as scared...at least not right this minute.

I know this might sound dumb, but I never noticed how I tied my shoelaces. I read on some blogs about how people where saying that the bow is off to one side because it is hard to tie shoes and be fat. I looked down, and yep, shoelaces where off to the side. Well.....I have been making sure that my bow is in the middle of my shoe. I am not sure why this is so important to me. Everytime I tie my shoes now, I smile, cause my bow is in the middle. I can bend over and tie my laces IN THE MIDDLE............that's a new NSV.

I am going to stay busy at work today......I'll be glad when next week's audit is over. Not so tingling today.....so YEA. Off to walk........

Stay positive.......


  1. Woo-hoo! Another great weight loss - well done!

    Hmmm, oops, my shoe laces are always wonky too.

    Keep your laces straight!

  2. Awesome weight loss! I'm so happy for you! And any nsv is something to be praised!

    Hope the house of your dreams will soon be yours!!

  3. LOL about the shoelaces!

    Congrats on your loss!!!

  4. Way to go on your loss! Woo-hoo!

    I get the shoe laces thing! Mine are to the side, and if I sit on the couch I can get the tied in the middle, but if I sit on the bed or a chair, I'm still to the side. Some day. lol

    Hoping the right house finds you and I can picture you gardening already!

  5. Congrats on the loss, walking is so good for you and it seems to be paying off. Good luck with the house hunting, when the right one comes along things will work out for you! We put in an application for a rental house last monday and I found out today that weve been accepted. So I know things will work out, how exciting tho to own your own home!

  6. The bow in the middle - love your NSV!

    Congrats on the loss!!!

  7. yay for the loss!!! Great victory on the laces. I remember it too well.......having to sit on the floor to tie my shoes. Now I can do it from a standing position and it doesn't cut off my oxygen........oh, the little things....that's the payoff!

  8. Congrats on the loss! And way to go with the walking! :)

  9. yayyy for the loss! keep up the walking.

    i hope that dream house happens.


  10. I can always log on and count on a blog entry from you! :) Congrats! on the loss. Thats awesome!Now this week try to get your food under control a little better AND keep up the walking AND drink your water and...and...and...LOL! Your doing great girl! Its a process girl. If it was easy we'd all be thin. Just hang in there.Keep putting one foot in front of the other and munch on a stalk of celery! Jinx!

  11. I just bought a house and it was so stressful. It's totally worth it all though. Good luck on it!

  12. Thanks for the encouraging comment you left me today! I really appreciate it! :)

  13. Congrats on the loss and the activity. That's funny about the shoelaces. Never thought about it before. Congrats on that NSV, too.

  14. Congrats on your loss!

    I am with you...I hate spending good money on produce that turns out to taste icky! I've found with watermelons that the grocery store ones are usually lackluster. I will only eat ones taht I get from local farmers! SOON!!!


Tell me what you think!
