weigh in and a topic
Weigh in for today, is up a 1/2 a pound. I'm not stressing over it cause it's tom and bloating, and blah, blah.
This will be a short blog today as we are busy all day and then my mom is coming tonight cause she wants to go to my son's school play or 'hoe down' tomorrow where they dress up like comboys or something. Should be cute.
Topic for today: How do you be happy with the here and now? I mean 'how do you be happy with the body your have now, if you are overweight'? I have trouble with that some days. Like, when we went up by snoqualmie and stopped to visit a friend. My hubby friend was out of town but we were just stopping to get a wetsuit that my husband will wear in an upcoming tri he's doing. Anyway, this couple is from class in high school and actually I was friends for years with the hubby and dated him long, long ago and our sisters were best friends. Anyway, he does tri's or mostly marathons now and is friends with my hubby through working for my dad long ago fishing in Alaska. So, what I was getting to is....the wife is so damn skinny and pretty. All the time, never fat except maybe slightly after having a baby but not really. You know the type, the sophmore princess in high school, the popular girl, the cheerleader. She is really nice too. I used to take comfort that she was a bit of an air head (catty I know) but after getting to know her she really isn't. Anyway, how do you stop the thoughts when you see another person that looks good and stop thinking "I want to look like her"! At least in body weight. Probably won't happen as she is mighty thin but I get so impatient to get this weight off. Why can't I just start losing heaps! Arrggggghhh.
How do you handle thoughts like this if you have any similar? Here's to a good week to all of you and will blog in a few days as my mom will be here. No news on my school! I emailed the secretary of the program and she said she put them in the mail late on Monday so soon.....
