I have a talking scale!
July 26, 2014
I'm 57 years old and I have had a lot of titles ... Daughter, Sister, Cousin, Aunt, Wife, Mom, Bookkeeper, Manager, Friend and finally ... Grandmother. Yes I am Ga-nny to the cutest most adorable precocious toddles you will ever meet. I am blessed to have 2 wonderful daughters who are happily married to good guys, and I mean that. Thirty Three years ago I married a man and today he is my best friend!
I love to read. I love to scrapbook. I love all the bits and odd pieces. I'm addicted to Grey's Anatomy. I enjoy long drives. I love country music. My favorite thing is to entertain ... friends or family, ... oh please ... pretty please, let me plan a party!!! Ask me about my hubby's 40th birthday ... a surprise funeral! Believe it or not I'm an introvert. And don't forget OPINIONATED ... in capitol letters! Just ask me!!!!
But ... I'm fat! I have been fat my entire adult life. Until today I honestly thought I would be fat my entire life. However, today I touched my toes! Yes I put my feet together and I bent over and I actually touched my toes.
Guess what ??? I did not die trying! I did not break I did not fall over! And surprisingly my hubby did not laugh. It felt good ... I touched them 19 more times ... and I made a discovery ... besides desperately needing a pedicure ... my cousins feet are better looking ... but shhh we are NOT going to tell her!!! Someday I will have to tell you about that! funny story.
Back in January my little (300lb+) brother told me he was reading a book ... the Calorie Myth ... by Jonathan Bailor. He was super excited ... said it just makes sense. So I downloaded it from Amazon ... and forced myself to read it ... I will confess I would prefer to read Gone with the Wind again!!! But he was right it did make sense ... so I talked to my hubby and told him we ARE GOING TO DO THIS! I'm sure he was thinking that okay this will last a week ... but hey guess what happened today ....
My talking scale said 237.2 lbs!!! That's DOWN ... 41.4 pounds!!!! I still have a LONG LONG way to go ... but that is the direction I'm heading!!! What's your journey?
