Doing fine and an NSV!!!
Hello friends !! I assure you my absense is not a bad one. Actually it’s a good one! I’m doing awesome. I have been sticking to my points, busy like crazy and loving every minute of it.
Saturday there was a huge car show in mid-Ohio that we went to and walked around from 10:00 a.m. till about 3:00 p.m. in the nasty heat no less…but some great exercise. Sunday we went and helped my cousin and her husband. They bought some property (wooded) and are going to build, so we helped get it cleared. Cutting down trees, trimming cut trees, clearing the brush, carrying the cut logs…GOOD exercise…that was from 11:30 a.m. till 5:00 p.m. Yesterday I walked one mile at the track at work, then when I got home did my 3 mile WATP DVD. So 4 miles total yesterday in just intentional exercise…
Then today I walked outside, and my neighbor guy was out back when I walked out and he goes ‘You losing weight?? You’re looking good!!’ How AWESOME does that feel??? Especially when it’s unsolicited compliments. Like when people don’t know you’re trying to lose, or whatever, and they notice I haven’t told anyone since I have been back at this strong again, so there’s no feeling on my end that they KNOW and they are just trying to give me a compliment to make me feel good. This is REAL. I’m just like that. If someone knows I’m working on WW and working out, then they compliment me, I feel like it’s a ‘pity’ compliment…know what I mean? That’s just me. My self-esteem is completely low. I feel good about myself at times and most others I would live under a rock if I could. It’s getting better ‘Specially now that I hear a positive from an unbiased person
So, that’s my update for the past few days…I didn’t weigh in last weekend…too busy to even think about it. I think I have trained my brain, at least for the time being to not focus on my numbers. It’s actually like a huge weight off my shoulders. But this weekend I will weigh in and I BETTER be outta the 260’s, or that scale’s gonna be taking a flight.
That is fantastic Lisa..what a great NSV. I do know what you mean though, I can’t even get a compliment from my husband because I think he is too biased and my mom of course is really biased. So when someone who doesn’t know I am trying to lose or hadn’t seen me in awhile says something I could float to the moon on it. lol
Great job with staying on task with your points etc…you are doing fantastic.
Hey Girly!! Sounds like you are doing great! I’m so glad that your neighbor boosted your confidence level. I’ve got a little funny story LOL! We were at the races Saturday night - me, Mike, Bethany, Kevin (Mike’s brother) & Eve (Kev’s GF). Well, I got up to walk Bethany down to the track, it was Kid’s Ride night. When I got back, Kev goes - "Hey, I just wanted to tell you that you look so GOOD! I was looking at your butt when you walked away and I can really tell how much you’ve lost" ROFL!!! Yeah - he pretty much embarrassed himself hehehehhee!! And me… but it felt good anyhow! Miss you sweets!!
Unexpected compliments are the best!!! I’m soooooo happy for you!!! Girl, you’re doing wonderful!!
I am so glad to hear you are doing well! 38# is alot! Just stopped by to say ‘howdy,’ and see how everything was going. NSV’s keep ya’ going, eh? Have a super weekend sweetie, Paula F
