lbsgoner's Journal, 30 December 2012

Good deeds r us kind of day. Spent four hours going to pick up a friend and her daughter from the airport in another city (they got a better fare by returning that way). Our friendship is lengthy and deep and consists of many extraordinary reciprocal instances of being there and going there and doing whatever it takes to help the other one out. An airport trip of 4 hours (lunch on way home etc) is a trifle of a thing in our history. Be that as it may, I had forgotten I had agreed to the 'favor' over a week ago and in the scheme of things it derailed my car search in a good way. When we were talking about lunch options my friend suggested a Steak and Shake that was in a town midway home. I reminded her about my diet and we decided on a place I had always wanted to try that I knew would have big salads. I had a fantastic Greek salad and with all the yakking I only finished half and brought the rest home. I recorded the whole thing in my lunch but the leftovers will be part of my dinner. Her daughter is in college but I taught her Sunday school class when she was four years old. It is interesting when friends kids get older, conversations are great and open. Kids will reveal age old mysteries of pranks that were played or about when they 'snuck out' and adults will be all 'yeah we knew what ya'll were up to'. Too funny. Life is long and a day like this makes me want to stay in the game. Which solidifies my commitment to weight loss and eating changes etc.. (See what I did there?)

Well hello there!! I would like to say that you are a very insightful person.... You're a great friend driving that distance to go get your friend, even when it was last minute remembrance. Great job staying on the plan with the salad, your friend is wonderful for not trying to coerce you into going to get the steak and shake.... You had mentioned in another post - and said: "I don't recognize myself in the mirror these days and that gives me the sads;-(( As long as I am beautiful on the inside, that's all that counts, right? " I want to answer by saying you are correct you are a beautiful person on the inside and outside... Don't be so hard on yourself. You have to take this one day at a time.. Don't be sad... The past few years I have felt as such and I am still working on not being so hard on myself when I look in the mirror.. I see a totally different person as well, but I do know that in due time I will be back to "my normal"... We are all in this together!
