Sandy701's Journal, 22 March 2013

The inching had success this morning. Now onto 156....tomorrow??? LOL!!

I had some errands today, so I went to the gym for some elliptical time because I was in the neighborhood. Very quiet there, as school's out and probably people are getting an early jump on their Easter vacation plans. Yes, I still say Easter break when the time off includes Easter. No "spring break" for me, unless it doesn't include Easter.

This is the time of the year, DH and I had planned on going to Atlanta. But that was before sequestration hit. Oh well.....only 44 degrees there today at 1PM. Not exactly spring weather to go walking around in, plus our bank balance will stay healthier staying put this year.

Next week on Thursday will be my 3-year anniversary of starting this low-carb WOE. Although I didn't find FS until June of 2010, I still logged my historical weights all the way back to my start date. What a difference 3 years makes! I'll probably journal about this up until the actual day just because I'm thinking about it so much. Hard to believe it's been nearly 3 years, as it seems like just, maybe, a year ago???

Oh, I forgot to say good job on going to the gym! I got so carried away with the birthday cake...that's just so me though!

GG, "cake" of any type will definitely get me sidetracked! Three years just flew by....guess that's due to all the great buddies on FS, like you! Thanks for all YOUR input and encouragement!

congrads again on the loss!! Be glad you didn't make the trip to Atlanta, it is COLD HERE! RAINING and yucky, still waiting for real warm weather to come!

Buffy, sometimes that inching seems to take forever, but if one perseveres, it eventually drops. And a big thank you to you too for being such a great buddy. I'm firml;y convinced that this journey would not have had success if I had tried to just go it alone. Let's face it, how many people do we know in "real" life who really and truly understand a weight loss goal of more than about 10 pounds? Hope you're having a restful weekend.

Bren, a good part of my weight loss comes from following the folks on site who've hit their ultimate goal, although many have left and/or only check in sporadically. The other part comes from folks like you who are successfully working their program and always here to give great feedback, encouragement, or to just listen. Thank YOU!

LGM...we've always had such great fun watching all the NCAA folks from "up north" who come to Atlanta, believing it will be tropically warm. Inevitably, the weather is anything but and those poor people are running around in shorts and flip-flops, just freezing! You'd think they'd buy some warmer clothing, but I guess in the college-mentality, it's just more fun to semi-freeze. The one thing I really miss is when the spring is a bit warmer and Atlanta is all in bloom.....just gorgeous!

Hay girl, hope you are doing okay, perhaps on vacation and I missed the memo. Hope to see you soon.
