I did not post my weigh in from my last Weight Watchers meeting because I had a gain of a pound. I expected it, because I knew I hadn't taken off the Vegas vacation weight yet. But that is no excuse. My weight loss efforts slide backwards every single weekend when we go out to eat, as it did yet again this last weekend. We spent both Saturday and Sunday in nearby Douglasville, shopping for Mother's Day gifts and miscellaneous other errands. Saturday was dinner out, and Sunday was lunch out. I did not make wise choices at either meal, and to boot, my mood was so low both days that I ordered Coke, something I try to avoid at all costs because that is one of my major downfalls and addictions. My back pain has been unusually high the last few days, and I am a typical woman that when I feel bad, I eat all the wrong things for comfort. Hence the Coke and the Mexican food, and then the southern diner this weekend. I can eat all the yogurt and fiber cereal and salads I want all week long, but come the weekend, just one or two meals can undo everything I've accomplished throughout the week. At least my weigh ins are on Friday, if that gives me any consolation at all. This seems like a sorry Monday for whiny posts, and maybe it is just the gloom and rain of the last four days getting to me. So the photo I am using for this post is inspiration for me, it's of Cape Hatteras on our first visit there in 2005. This would be before I hurt my back, and before the weight gain got out of hand. Yes it was challenging for the old thighs, but James and I climbed to the top. No way I could do that today, but it is something I will be able to do again one day. I am not going to post again today, because I am too busy having yet another pity party for myself.
My husband James and I moved to Newnan, Georgia in 2008 from South Carolina- due to his career. We both work for the same company- James 15 years and 10 years for me. We love our life, our new home, our six kitties, our family. We love to travel, and put our paid vacation days from work to good use! Most of all, we love to spend time together no matter what we're doing. I have an ordinary life but share it with an extraordinary man. I am so lucky! Life has been great to both of us. I know I started this blog off insinuating that I would be showing my artwork, but I left my muses back in South Carolina when we moved. They haven't managed to find me again so far. Maybe one day.
