I'll take my life, thank you

Sometimes my life just seems so boring. Nothing big ever really happens. I just go about the business of living life. Then something happens that makes you really grateful for that boring life. Yesterday one of the guys that does maintenance where I work was shot and killed. I guess he walked in on a robbery over drugs or something like that. They found him in the doorway and another man was killed inside the home also. Totally freaked me out. He was a nice kid and I had just talked to him hours before he was shot. I knew he was having a hard time. His wife had just kicked him out. I figured his problems were drug related. It's very sad. I am so grateful I was able to leave that type lifestyle behind. I am grateful for my boring little life and for the blessing of being clean. My life could have been SO MUCH WORSE!! I got away with few consequences for the kind of life I was living.

I weighed at WW this morning and was DOWN 4.2 lbs. Bringing the total loss to 47.2 lbs. Feeling really good, happy with results of a really hard week. I just had a hard time with getting my walks in and staying on track with food. But I made time for the walking!! Food wasn't perfect, but better then the week before.

So I push onward and downward. I can't believe I am so close to Onederland and so close to having 50 lbs gone!

Keep the mood and food grateful for your problems today. You really don't want anyone else's.


  1. You're right; there's something to be said for nice and boring.

  2. ditto

    BIG huge congrats on the loss! Awesome! You'll hit that 50lb milestone so very soon & I bet that will feel oh-so-good.

    Have a great week!

  3. Oh my gosh, how very sad. sigh

    I am all for boring. I like to use the term uneventful instead. I'm just learning to add positives--really find them to add to the uneventful.

    Fab loss! Wow, you are doing so well. I am so happy for you!

    You really are such an inspiration. You have overcome so much, and you are just shining on this journey. Well done!!! =)

    I am sorry for the loss of your friend. It is sad to see the toll that addictions can take.

  5. What a terrible tragedy - so glad your life is boring (in a good way) now.
