In like a lion...

Well, July has charged in like a lion! Besides being hot enough to cook an egg off the pavement I slammed my pointy finger in the car door! Not sure how that happened but it makes typing a pain!

I've had some pretty good days emotionally and feel really refreshed mentally. I honestly do feel like I can accomplish so much! Sadly I still see a fat chick in the mirror but it hasn't "affected me" (ie making me want to say f it and quit my weight loss journey because I can't SEE what others see). Now if I could just get remotivated on jogging. I'm thinking I may need to sign up for a 1/2 marathon to jump start my motivation. It's so sad that I have to PAY for something like that to get me off my duff! Oh well, whatever works works.

Recently I saw an older neighbor who I hadn't seen in quite some time. She said "I noticed you lost a lot of weight and have been hoping to get to talk to you-how did you do it?" I told her weight watchers and you'd a thought I kicked her dog! Evidently she had been on weight watchers before (and lost weight) but when the new points plus came out she couldn't get used to it and started gaining. She even told me she was hoping I'd say I was taking a magic pill! It really disappoints me when people pray for a magic pill that will melt the weight off. How quickly people forget that they didn't gain it over night and that these things take time. I tried to talk to her a bit, about things I was doing and even suggested that she go back to the old points system. She wasn't listening and it became evident that she didn't want advice or the truth. That disappoints me too but I also realize that people are going to do what they want and have to find out what works for them. and only THEY know what will work for them. Know what I mean jelly bean?

Ok..gotta run...I'm supposed to be asleep! But before I go here is a picture of lil frankie at six weeks...What a doll he is!!


  1. What a cute puppy!

    I'm like you...I need to pay to really commit myself. But hey, whatever works!

  2. glad you're focused and i agree paying to run sucks but hey it's usually for a good cause and franki is such a cutie!
