Scales going-

Tuesday, October 04, 2011


Dim Sum---photo taken by son#2, the Pilot, from restaurant in Vancouver-(Only Chinese people take pictures of food!)--LOL-----I put this pic into this blog as I wish I could eat these --Ha Ha---
The weight has dropped another half a pound-
I am happy ---
You see, about 100 years ago, my weight was under 200 pounds---
Then summer came--I gained 11 pounds---but--I stayed on Spark---
A month ago, I decided , mainly because of sore knees, that I HAD to lose that weight again--
WEll, slowly, with ""mind over matter"", the scales have been going down-
I call it recycled weight--weight I've lost before--
To-day the scales say 203.5-(I was up to 217 pounds)--
So---Sparklers kept me here--- and I am happy to see the weight SLOWLY coming off--plus my knees are NOT sore anymore.

The radio this morning tells of an economy which seems to be getting worse.
I will not worry about stuff I cannot change--
I will remain focused on drinking my water---exercising--that means--keep moving--
--keep happy----try not to ""grouch""-----eat my little ol' sandwich at noon---keep vegetables in the forefront of my meals. Have any of you tried to eat 5-7 fresh vegetables in a day??--That is a lot of veggies!
Right now, the dreadmill is waiting ----Coach Coal is beside me here (the GSDOG)-waiting to accompany me-
Husband has my ""fabulous breakfast drink ready----
Let the day begin Sparklers--- We CAN do this!
Positive thoughts--forget the DIM SUM----!--Ha Ha

    Way to go...You Rock!

    Good job of jumping back in with both feet. I am so proud of you.

    I have a dear friend who has knee problems but she refuses to do anything about her weight - doesn't really thing it is a contributing factor. She is seeing an orthopedist next week so hope she listens to him.

    Hugs Sunny

    BTW - People from the South take pictures of their food too. One time, I was fixing Fried Chicken and my Uncle (from Texas) called - ask me to take a photo and e-mail it to him so I did. See - it is not just Chinese that take pictures of their food.

    I'm glad to hear the scales are moving the right direction! I've been struggling with recycled pounds myself. It takes a lot of determination, but we can do it -- I know we can! Let's fill up on those veggies so we don't crave ice cream, chocolate, and pasta! Keep on treading the dreadmill!
