Good Day

Went to the Y.  35 mins on treadmill, 20 minutes of upper body weights.  5 minutes of stretching.  No core.  Ran out of time as I got there late.  Thank God, no rain.  Worked from home today.  Phone did not ring too much.  Got 2 small estimates done.  Office day tomorrow!  Hooray!  More work getting done!  Kona sat with me all day.  Life is good today.  Back to filling out Fitday.  I am sure I forgot some stuff but did the best I could so the days weren't blank.   I was 153.5 last week.  This Sunday, was 152.5 lbs.  My current weight in DS goal says 150.5 and I am just going to leave it there until I can move it back down.  To finally be in the 140's again.  Close! My sister has lost 107 lbs so far.  I did not realize she had gotten to 295 lbs!  My mom told me yesterday.  I was guessing 250's.  She is same height as me, 5' 1".  But she looks great.  She only eats when she is hungry and stops when she gets full.  Eats turkey burgers and veggies.  There is no way I could do that as I am perpetually hungry.  Some days are worse than others.  Today wasn't so bad though.  Better on water today as well.   David is doing a little better.  Starting to get some more positive (yes positive) feedback from teachers and starting to see homework done and grades going up.  Paul and David are still at odds with each other.  I am afraid that David is just kind of shut down to Paul.  I can understand because I can shut down to him myself.  The man just needs meds or something.  But Paul mowed the grass today and moved around, so hopefully he will be in a better mood.  I keep begging him to join the Y with me and go workout.  His mood will improve.  He will not do it.   Anyway, that's it.  A little better today.  Took the Halloween decorations down.  Will try to get them up by the weekend.  Oh, 1 last thing:  I am wearing my new size 12 pants today!  Had a pair of 14's on yesterday and it was too uncomfortable.  Too much fabric!  Now some 14's fit, some don't.  You know how that goes.  But I am going to get a trash bag and slowly, hopefully, start filling it up.  (And make some room for some new clothes!)  1 pair of pants are ready to go in that bag!  YES!

Good for you babes! I can\'t believe how well you are doing. You have so much motivation. I know it may not feel like it on days, but I\'m so idle it\'s not even funny. lol. Wow about your sister. I can\'t believe her dedication to lose weight! I can\'t even lose the couple of pounds that I gained since we\'ve been married. I\'m not overweight, but wish that I could get rid of the infamous belly fat that will not go away for anything. Keep up the good work!

YAY!! Size 12\'s and positive feedback. Sounds good to me! If Paul isn\'t there for David, it\'s reassuring to know that you are there for him. You are an awesome mom!
