I had some time to kill between the end of work and my TOPS meeting. I caught up on the blogs I read and then checked into some of the blogs those people follow. Some of these blogs hadn't been updated for weeks or even months. I wondered what happened to these people. Did they just give up? Did they not find the support they needed? Did someone say something to make them fade into the sunset? Did they ever reach their goal? Have you ever befriended a blogger and continued to check on them when they didn't post to see how they were doing? I think it's all so sad but it's a personal choice. I just know how important it is for me to be doing this now, but wonder when I do reach my goal if it will be as important a tool to continue during the maintenance period.
Well that ole Joker had the tables turned on him ... kinda. I did have a loss last night. I lost 1/2#. I'm happy with it. Looking back it wasn't the normal week. No Zumba on Tuesday, a crummy attitude on Wednesday (wonder if that was because of no Zumba on Tuesday) and not enough drinking ... of water that is. One half of a pound is good. I will never again say it should have been more, why wasn't it more, I wish it was more, because it WILL be more ... it'll just have to wait until my next weigh-in. That half pound was important. It put me in the next decade of numbers. A milestone? Sure, I take it as that. I am now in the decade of the 70's. The Seventies were the decade that I started a new life with many happy and joyous events. We were married in 1970. We had a son in 1971 and a daughter in 1975. We also bought our first home in the 70's. I'm looking forward to the weight decade of the 70's to be a beginning too but I just will have to see what it'll bring.
I said it was going to be a good week and it will be.
