Oh my friends – the overwhelming support that you have all shown me this past week has been so totally awesome! I have been blown away by the suggestions, the wonderful comments and the encouragement. I just know I can do this now. And did you notice my blog heading, “Journey with Friends“? It has been suggested that not only can this be a place for “ME”, it can be a place for others as well that are going down this path of better health. Some place where we can all meet up once a week for encouragement and strength. Please feel free to share any of your wisdom – great recipes, motto’s, encouragement, ideas, suggestions and/or your weight loss stories and goals. Together we can do this!
Well my friends, it wasn’t a good week. At weigh In on Saturday, I was up 3 pounds. This was something I kind of thought might happen this week. And I’m okay with it. I know exactly what was my downfall. Butterscotch drops. Sigh. You see these are little candies that my mom makes special for me every year at Christmas. They kind of start Christmas for me. They are yummy and crispy. They are delicious. They are addictive as we can see from a 3 pound weight gain.
But it we are living right? Day by day we go down this path and it’s not a race, right? I hope you did much better than me. Hugs.
Oh I’m still having problems with my pulse. I barely squeezed by this past Saturday at 99 bpm (has to be 100 or less). I have no problems with Thursday nights. There is no line then. But Saturday’s are horrid. I stood in line for over 2 hours before getting my vitals.
