Or no Change?

I weighed in exactly the same as last week. EXACTLY! I was ok with it. I was very ok with it. I was careful last week what I ate, and I still didn't write everything down. I kept a running total in my head.....and I try not to stress about it. Cause when I do that, I eat. I was looking at this book Think Like A Thin Person. Thin people don't freak about everything they put in their mouths. Anyway, I know I am not thin, and I do have to be careful, but I think that stressing out about eating, adds to what ever eating occurs. This seems to be working ok for me now. I am maintaining my walking and my knee seems to be ok, little bit sore this morning. I am drinking water, but not enough. This week I will do better. The scale will move DOWN next week, so let it be written, so let it be done. ( yes I watched the Ten Commandments over the weekend )

It looks like the house right close to my daughter's has had lots of offers above the asking price. That's ok, it's got me looking forward. I have a realator now, and I am going to move forward on getting qualified. Thank you so much for the encouraging comments. I am such a whimp when it comes to adult stuff. I need to put on my big girl pants ( yes I own a pair ) and DO IT. And by it, I mean do pretty much everything.

It's only 4:30 am. I will walk before work, makes my day go so much better! Work will be busy. time will fly. It's my baby boy's 20th Bday. I haven't really planned anything. No money, since I had to fix my car last week. He is such a great kid. He is thoughtful, SO FUNNY, kind and too freaking smart for his own good...he thinks he knows it all. Anybody else have on of those? I think I will get a cake and take it to the school and take it out to the playground and let the kids sing Happy Birthday to him. He loves to be the center of attention. I can't imagine where he gets that from ( look at me ). He drives a bus/playground aide at one of my schools. The kids love him.

I am really a lucky gal!


  1. A cake on the playground sounds so sweet. Happy birthday to him.

  2. Awww, that's so cool he works at one of your schools. I hope he has a wonderful Birthday. The kids and him will get such a kick out of having cake. Yea, I have a 17 yr old and 40 yr old know it all lol. I think there's a few in every family lol. Big girl pants sound like a good idea to put on *grin*. Hope you enjoyed your walk and your work day is going by quickly.

  3. Congrats on breaking even . That would send a warning siren in my head though that i was straddling the fence. I'd really watch my calorie count this week so you can have a loss and not a gain next week. Be good, chin up, one foot in front of the other! Jinx!

  4. Good for you for DOING IT! As I like to say when I'm doing something new..."I feel like such a grown up" and I'll bet you do, too.

    Love the cake on the playground idea! Happy birthday to your son!


Tell me what you think!
