The weekend is officially here, and I’m starting it right with a workout then a pool party! My friends are flying out in about 12 hours which makes me sad, but I’m excited to know that they’ve had such a wonderful time. And I’m thrilled that I’ve been able to take a part in it.
We got in Friday morning about 6am after a night of parties and live music with my favorite semi-local band, The Amish Outlaws. It’s been a while since I watched a sunrise, but it only took about 2 minutes for me to sleep once my head hit the pillow.
I’m excited to tell you that the scale was where I expected it to be yesterday…I was up .4 pounds not 5.4 pounds. Good grief. No more Wednesday morning weigh-ins for me. I think it’s a better idea to stay consistent with what I’ve done up to this point because it’s working well.
Another fun part of this week was my WW meeting. My group hosted a party for me Thursday for losing 100 pounds, and it was lovely. They said some incredibly encouraging and sweet things. My heart swells knowing that I mean so much to them, and the feeling is definitely returned!
One friend from the group even baked a cake (of which I had one big bite) with a congratulatory message. 🙂 Another friend brought flowers and balloons, and my leader gave me a balloon along with a CD full of inspiring songs.
I have a long way to go, but I’m getting there. It was fun to celebrate such a big milestone, but now it’s time to kick it into high gear. I like it better that way. 😉 I plan to make some very healthy choices this week to counter the choices that weren’t so healthy last week. Just saying.
This week has yielded so much fun, but one of the best parts has been learning that I can trust my body. I can walk all over the city without swollen feet, and I can walk up four flights of stairs at the end of a long night because I have energy. That is the biggest difference I see in myself so far and probably the most important one.
I’m going to miss my friends who visited…BIG TIME. But they’ll be back in January, and we’ll be ready to paint the town again. 🙂 And I’m heading their way next week when I visit Mom and family. I’m really looking forward to it.
