Today is drizzly, dark, and dreary out … my exercise buddy had to cancel … no matter the rain canceled our walk regardless. That is the reason for the sunny flower picture–to make us all smile at it’s warmth. The weather only heightens the feeling of impending doom. Before you all get all worried … There is NO looming doom … ONLY Tomorrow is The Weigh in!! I should be used to “THE DAY BEFORE WEIGH IN” by now, but I am NOT! This is the Big 12 week Weigh In. There will only be another week before real food starts being added into my diet. At least I am pretty sure that is how it will work since I started in the middle of a week.
*SIGH* I know I should be excited, and I am. In general my life is good and things have been moving marvelously along. Maybe it really is just the weather.
I am not worried that I will not lose. I think I have lost–my scales weigh me less than I did when I went in for weigh in. My scales and their scales are NOT the same–my scales always weigh me more, YUCK! What I would love would be a 4 pound loss so that I would make it to a 50 pound loss for the 12 weeks. OptiFast Loser at week 3 has lost a whopping 43 Pounds!! YEA OL!! I love all my big loser buddies: Beth, Dizi, Dean Jones, Grumpy, Bitch Cakes, Fat Smoker, OptiFast Loser, and Of Course all my buddies at the OptiFast meetings. They keep me focused, keep on track, laugh with me over trials, and understand when I get nervous — because they are in the trenches with me they get where I am.
I know they understand how I feel about this 50 pound goal. I know they understand it may not be realized, and though I will be HAPPY for my over all loss for the 12 weeks, because it is something I have NOT been able to do any other way, they also understand the disappointment when you don’t reach a goal. But Like Beth always says (I am paraphrasing) — DREAM BIG. I did! I am not sorry that I did, but if I don’t make it, I will be a touch sad. Only for a second though, because I have come a LONG WAY BABY! 🙂
I am going to post a few more Cheery Pics from the other day out and about in my yard. I think that is one way to get my mind off of tomorrow. I will probably hop on the treadmill to walk off some of this nervous energy. 🙂
The opening pic was from my deck clematis, wasn’t she beautiful?
This rose smells as good as it looks!
How da ya like my lettuce garden?? I am so very excited about trying to grow lettuce. That’s Food, Real FOOD! Yea! hehehe! I love fresh. I will let you all know how the growing salad greens turns out. I am pretty good with herbs, and I have an advantage–My Mama is GREAT at gardening. She can probably help me keep them alive for at least a few salads. 🙂
Until the morrow ….S
