I know … today is the BIG WEIGH IN DAY!! Did I make my goal? Well, I will tell you in a bit. I was so NERVOUS/Excited that I had quite a time getting ready this morning. Coupled with a phone call regarding my son’s bus driver, who took it upon himself to change the way Collin is picked up and let off. For those of you who don’t know Collin is Autistic, and he paces in the morning while he waits for the bus. The bus driver thought is was no big deal to change the order. So, now, Collin is picked up down the street and dropped off at our house. Opposite of what we have explained OVER and OVER to them. So, I ran late because I had to re-EXPLAIN I don’t want another child hit by a car — especially one with a neurological disorder already! Come-on-Already!! How hard is this to understand???
Running late, I rush down the stairs with my junk in hand, and I have on my WONDERFUL Desoto Recovery Socks … and … my flip flops and NO Jacket (I don’t usually wear flip flops, and it was 49 degrees outside)! The socks are life savers for people like me with edema. These Socks, unlike support hose, help keep you cool. They are just Wonderful, and I HAVE to wear them If I am going to sit for an hour or more. They may not be “Sexy” lookin’ to you with my cropped pants, but healthy (non-fluid build up) is always “Sexy” with me! By-the-way, I have to buy new socks now, too. Hehe … they are getting Too LOOSE to do much good. I have included the link for on the word Desoto for anyone who might be interested — they are WAY worth the money! I am begining to think that I might just fit well in some of their cool clothes soon. 🙂
Remember how I was HOPING that my Last Week on Full Formula before transition (I am waiting until next week to get my food stuff together) loss would get me to the 50 pound mark … well … I LOST 5 pounds this week … for a total of 51 LBs. for the 12 week period! YEA! I was very difficult to deal with today. Before the weigh in, I was a “Chatty Cathy” because I was so nervous, and then afterwards, because I was SO HYPER EXCITED! What can I say … I feel like I got a SUPER Bonus this week! 🙂
I don’t know if stickers and badges work for you all, but they are fun to get in my e-mail. So, I thought I would share them with you here today. Yes … this Fat Lady is jumpin’, dancin’, and feeling generally good about life! No … I haven’t started to sing … because it is NOT time to throw in the towel to say I quit. I am almost Half way to my goal, and with 54 pounds left to go the battle has only–JUST–gotten underway. 🙂

I had a FaceBook post asking me what would my foods look like after being off for 13 weeks. My diet will be VERY simple. Low to NO Fat! Very few foods will be added in at a time to give my body a chance to adjust to the strange substances being introduced back into my system. I am very excited. I have to go shopping for a NEW pan to cook this food in–since there is NO fat to keep it from sticking. hehehe!
Here are Next week’s new food items:
Anybody know and great low/no fat recipes for these foods??? Keep in mind, I can’t even eat dressing low fat or otherwise.
Oh and for your fun and enjoyment, each picture is linked to the site or blog I borrowed it from, some of these have great info for gettin’ healthier folks! Givem’ a look. 🙂
Well … I am heading out to look for that cool new pan for next weeks food … y’all have a good day, now … ya hear …S 🙂
