Well do you want the good news or the good news. That's right my friends, good news all around! Had a follow up with the Dr. about my blood pressure yesterday. My doctor said it's the best blood pressure he has ever seen. Ok, he didn't really say that, but I could tell that's what he ment. Plus he praised me as I have loss 6 pounds since my last visit about 6 weeks ago.
Then I go to my weight loss meeting. Let me start by saying that I love my little group. It's just me and 3 friends and one hubs. We cheer each other on. I love that we know each other well enough by now that we can talk about the why's. Like why I bought and then ATE 2,( yes 2 don't judge me), bags of those damn tootsie rolls. It's no wonder I am "irregular"..... cue the Activia commercial. I still managed to eek out a half pound loss. I will take it with a smile on my face and a song in my heart.
So I am going to keep it REALLY REALLY simple for myself this next week. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES PURCHASE ANY TOOTSIE ROLL OR RELATED PRODUCTS, i.e. tootsie pop. That's it. They are my Goliath! I am just not going to eat them this week and then let's see how my weight does next Monday. Cause seriously, I can do better then a half a pound. You know it, and I know.
One more thing that happened at the meeting. My cute little younger friend gave me a sack of clothes that are too big for her now. Beautiful stuff. I was just thinking over the weekend that I was going to have to break down and buy some jeans cause I have zero. The jeans she gave fit nicely and she gave me a bunch of t shirts. A while back she gave me a dress that I can't wait to wear. I can zip it up....but I certainly wouldn't wear it out. One day though...lol
So that's the good news from me today. I will say that I can tell today is going to one of those "pressing forward" days. To me that means that I will have to put in some extra effort day. Kind of like walking into the wind. I am meeting resistance in the form of TCB (the crazy brain). This is what I will tell TCB today.
I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and GOSH DARN it people like me.
Keep the mood and food real......stay away from the tootsies! (this week anyway)
