Down 36

Postby worldawind » July 2nd, 2007, 7:46 am

I'm down 36 and I feel wonderful. I can't believe how I actually like looking in a mirror and don't want to hide and cry.

the owner of the company I work for, an 80 year old man, who occasionally drops in when he is in from Florida came today and when I looked up I saw he was staring at me. He asked me if I had had a makeover. I told him not really but I did lose 36 pounds and he told me I look beautiful. What a day.

Even my mouth is getting better, a little bit each day.

I have to be careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.

Weight loss has really slowed this month so I'm looking at what I have been doing, or maybe what I'm not doing to correct it. I know it eventually slows but I feel that while I'm waiting for the new gym to open August 1st, that might be part of the problem. I am still walking at night but I guess it is just not enough. Plus I realized I'm picking at foods which I didn't do before.

So today I am committing to be much more watchful over what I am doing, eating all the meals and not picking on things I should not be having.

hi worldawind!!

remember me? Lisa, your rash buddy!! ( i actually have a rash on my ear now?? but whatever!!)

36 !!!!!!!!! AWSOME!!!! absolutely AWSOME!!!!!!!!

I have to tell you... i've been picking myself and its making me nervous... i just have to stop.. i think i'm down about 21 now... (wow it feels good to say that!).. haven't been at the doctors scale, b/c between my vacation and his vacation... i go next wed.. so i'll see what the real deal is!!

but i have to stop this picking.. i've had pretzels, pineapple, a plum, some cherries.. i havent had a cookie or cake... I'm so afraid i won't be able to get back on track and i still have at least, at least 30 lbs to go (if not more)... how did you get back on track... just force yourself to do the shakes and not pick.. right? wish me luck...

but WOW.. 36!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lisa :D

Lisa I do intend remember you. Sorry about the new rash but is the mouth o.k. I think after all was said and done and the tests he put me through I had something referred to as burning tongue or burning mouth. To make a long story short they don't know why it comes and they don't why it goes, its been 3 months for me but it is finally getting better. Whether MF set it off I don't know but I made the decision as long as it's not going to kill me I'm sticking with it.

I'm also having a problem with extra nibbles but I've caught myself. I think that's why this month's weight loss wasn't so good. However, I'm aware of it now and I've been extra careful.

Lisa you can do it too. No one has to tell us not to cheat, we know what happens. We have to follow the program as written, it works as written. We can and will do it.

Keep in touch.
