My Day 14

Sunday, May 26, 2013

Hey, I'm 140 lbs this morning. So as of today me and DH have lost 100 lbs together...just in time for our 40th wedding anniversary today!

We are going out for breakfast and then cooking supper over the fire tonight. As soon as I finish typing this I'm going to bring my fabulous DH coffee in bed.

I choose to be happy today.
I choose healthy food today.
I choose a fabulous walk to day.
I choose to celebrate 2 lives who have been through THICK and thin, chubby and thin, and poor and not so poor, 2 lovely children (who were each teenagers!!!), and 3 fabulous grandchildren!

Everyday is a a great day to celebrate life...but THIS one es especially great for me!

My Day 13

Saturday, May 25, 2013

The scales are down a pound this morning...even after eating out last night. Every choice is important...I choose health...I choose healthy food...I choose exercise...I choose to be happy.

My NEW normal is different from my OLD normal. I love the changes in my "normal"!!!

If it is to be, it is up to me....

My Day 12

Friday, May 24, 2013

Good thing I have this "pre-choosing" plan for eating out in place b/c I just found out I'm going out for dinner again tonight. I'm choosing fish and salad...now whether I can choose grilled fish instead of deep fried, remains to be seen.

My scales are not moving, but my body IS changing. My DH gave me a hug this morning and said I am definitely smaller in diameter. Cute eh? I guess that's what they call a "non-scale victory" :-)

So onward I go...IF IT IS TO BE, IT IS UP TO ME!

    You are fortunate to have a sweet DH who is so supportive. That is one great non-scale victory.

    A non-scale victory, indeed! And give your DH bonus husband points for telling you instead of keeping it to himself.

Grilled fish is very tasty! Enjoy your dinner!

    The scales is but one tool and one meter for measuring progress, it is just so-o-o-o-o-o out there where we can see it!

Make Today a Great Day!

My Day 11

Thursday, May 23, 2013

It's pouring rain this morning. No outdoor painting this morning! The porch is 3/4 done...yay, so maybe the rest done later today or Saturday.

I had an extra snack last night b/c I was tooo hungry, but how nice it was to choose something healthy and portion-controlled rather than junk!!!

So, plans for today were to go for a long walk with a friend, but we may be doing exercises inside or maybe a mall-walk.

Our 40th anniversary is coming up and we're going out for supper with friends. I've already scoped out the menu at the restaurant and chosen my dinner...pre-planning is my BEST way to stay on-track! I find if I do this before I get there and read all the yummy choices on the menu, I can take the emotion out of the choice so my dinner is based on what my brain wants me to eat, rather than what my tummy wants me to eat!

Onward I go.

If it is to be, it is up to me.

    Booooo to rain! Keep it there will you!?! Way to go on choosing a healthy/portion controlled snack last night! Sometimes it can be very difficult, so kudos to you! emoticon in advance! Although I will say it again lol. 40 years is awesome; mine will be 7 in July, I can only hope ours will reach that too!! That's awesome you have already chosen your meal, it is the best way to go. I do that most of the time as well. Enjoy the day!!!

My Day 10

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Well, the scales are not moving but I sure am! I've been doing this and doing that...making plans, doing them! It's been good.

I've been eating on-plan, and exercising...right alongside tackling my HUGE spring "to do" list.

Onward I go.

If it is to be, it is up to me...

    Sounds like you are having fun getting major things accomplished! I hope the scale decides it should show your progress soon. But you do not seem to focus on the scale as your source of happiness, which is great, keep moving!
