Did you miss me??
I am .4 of a pound away from having a total weight loss of 35 pounds!
Yippee!! I hope to break that last little-bit by New Years day and be on
my way to my next 35 pound goal. I’m meeting up with a bunch of my
old high school friends at a dude ranch in April and I sure want to look
good! Also, the last time we got together, I was the only one who couldn’t
ride the horses – because I couldn’t get my big, fat, butt up and over the
saddle! Well, I laughed it off then, but let me assure you – that it isn’t
funny and it’s never happening again!
The last two weeks I’ve been a traveling fool. Went to the New Orleans
area with my two sisters-in-law and went antiquing then on to the Austin
area to have Christmas with my son and his family. I had an amazing time
with my family on both trips and had so much fun spending money on
“stuff” and playing with my grandchildren. Of course, I ate out a lot….but
made mostly good choices and the scale shows it. Got home just in time
for my husband to get really sick (he’s much better now), so I had to cancel
my workout with my trainer. Other than walking around shopping – that’s
the extent of my “exercise”. I failed miserably in that department, so I
guess I’ll be starting over in that regard.
Other than this little head cold, I feel great and ready for Christmas. Today
is a baking day! This is going to be hard for me – still. The aroma of fresh
baked “things” feels like Christmas, and I know my neighbors will enjoy
the goodies. Lest anyone think I’m perfect, I want to assure you I am not!
I have enjoyed a few cookies and candies here and there, but over the last
23 weeks, I have really learned how to eat in moderation. I will never be
able to pig-out like I have in the past 60+ years and I have learned a hard
So, Merry Christmas to me and Merry Christmas to all my readers.
Looking forward to 2012 as “my year”. – Claretta
