I have tears in my eyes from reading all of your encouragement! I love you all! I really appreciate and take to heart all that you say! I will TRY and work on making links to your blogs sometime in the next week. It's just been crazy for me! I work two part-time jobs to get the bills caught up so we can finish our house and I get pretty tired!
Anyways, my husband took me shopping last week to Lane Bryant. It's an outlet store and we went two months ago to get proper fitting 'undergarments' and the woman there was so kind! Anyway, I lost a band size and a pant size! I was so happy!! The problem is, I don't see any of it. I still see myself as I used to be. Someone told me that was actually a good thing because it will keep me motivated to lose the weight. I don't know. I have a tendency of giving up easily if I don't see the results that I want to. Oh well. I will press on.
I was looking in my WW food journal today to see when I started this painful journey, and I'm not sure that the weight I've lost is enough. I started in early April. I would like it to come off faster, but I know it's my own fault. I haven't been exercising and I cheat at least one day a week! UGH!
Hopefully, I will be going back to Wisconsin again in September to see my sister and her kids. I hope it works out! My hubby tries to send me at least once a year and I've already gone once. He knows how hard it is for me to be so far away from her. I have lived here in NH for almost 11 years!! The only reason we are still here is because someone needs to check in on his parents. I mean, they're not invalids, but they are getting older. He has two brothers, but one lives 2 hrs away and comes up when he can and the other lives 20 min. away and only shows up if he needs money!! It is so frustrating! OMG! Did I really just vent all of that? I'm really sorry. I just miss my sister so much, especially since our parents stopped talking to us. That's another story.
Anyway, the picnic is Sunday, and I hope I can do it. Wait, I KNOW I can! Yes, yes, I can do it!
Take care everyone and I'll try and get your pages linked to mine and hopefully start commenting on your pages as well! For some reason, we are getting a faster connection at home, which is good! Not going to complain!
LOVE YOU ALL FOR ALL OF YOUR WONDERFUL SUPPORT AND COMMENTS!! I KNOW you can do it too! Will post a picture, maybe tonight.
