Birthday Countdown: 20 Days to reach 199 lbs goal weight
Yesterday was a really exciting day for me because of all of the wonderful comments people made on my progress blog/photos. Thanks to everyone for your kind comments. I feel so honored that one person actually chose to post my photo on their refrigerator for motivational purposes. I don’t think anyone has ever done that before! Thanks Spark Friends!
So far my birthday countdown as a motivator is working. Only 20 days left. It really helps to have a short term goal. I don’t feel so overwhelmed anymore. One thing that also is helping me allot is eating a grapefruit after dinner. It seems to kill any and all cravings. And since it’s that time of year, I have a plentiful supply of free organic Tucson grown grapefruit!
I was going to do a two day birthday hike but because of my arm probably wont be able to do so. I’m trying to avoid the birthday dinner/cake thing. I wanted to celebrate my birthday with a healthy hike and healthy food and perhaps some time to contemplate life. Anyone have any ideas?
I got rid of three kitchen trash bags of clothing yesterday. That included all of my much too big underwear. Now I’m wearing mediums. Next month will be bra month. Someone told me that Target is the place for bra shopping and that Consumer Guide, or a similar source, rated them equally good as more expensive name brands. So I will give it a try. I actually can move my clothes into the dressers in the closet now! I’m thrilled! I’ll have so much more room. I’m not done yet, but it was a good start on getting the closet organized.
