Gosh it's been beautiful around here. I got my hour in the pool again and it's wonderful. So many of my card gals are out for one reason or another I keep getting asked into other games. I turned down two next week and said yes to one. The reason is I'd rather get in the pool when it is this nice than sit in a card room. But I didn't lie either, I just said I'd have to decline and didn't give a reason.
Today is shopping with the duck. I enjoy my time with him. We might go to lunch too, probably will actually.
Yesterday I made a statement I didn't think I'd say. There was a really heavy gal at the pool and some of us were sitting around talking. I had finished my swim and the (self appointed) governor and mayor (of the pool) were ready to get in. She didn't want to swim with us or sit with us, I invited her. I said to no one, just to myself, "I am NOT going to ever gain that weight back!" and I meant it. (She couldn't hear me.) I really really mean it too. It's been 23 months of working at it with no end in sight and I don't want to go backwards.
I do allow myself to eat more on a cruise but that's the only time. Even then I am not nearly eating what I used to eat either. Just some cake here and there (ha!).
I know you should never say never but I am so determined to succeed and I'd feel like I was letting y'all down too if I gained it back. So many of you have told me I am inspiring you to lose and I am SO proud of that. And I also feel like Sarge is looking down on me and proud too.
So that's my sermon of the day. Sorry for getting all squishy on you today. Make it a great one, okay? I will too...
