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...


  1. There are times when you need to say no and not give a reason.

    Enjoy that pool time while you can. it gives you joy. Have fun with your son! I'm so glad things worked out for you two to have time together.

  2. It's really good that you are so determined with your weight loss and keeping it off, I so admire you Bee. Have a great day with the Duck. xx

  3. Buongiorno!!!
    Have a great Sunday!
    Continue your life style, I think that it is a great satisfaction on getting so many positive results for your body- and mind-health!
    Have fun with D.!

    Big hugs, honey!

  4. It's so easy to gain that weight back if you're not paying attention. I know you pay attention every single time you eat. Healthy choices is what you've learned and I know you can do this all the time.

    Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs. :)

  5. Bee, Thank you for attempting to have the lady join you. You know weight control is a struggle. You have been strong and other's do admire you. You know your Sarge loved you and would be proud. xoxo,Susie

  6. Miss Bee I have found the hardest part the maintenance of the weight loss, but I am determined too. I have kept what I lost off since 2007 so hopefully I am doing better than ever before. Good luck to you, what you've done is not easy but you have added many years onto your life with all the exercise and the way you eat.

  7. I am confident you will not gain that weight back, nor need a scooter again. Period. Hope the weather cooperates for you.

    Big hugs, honey...
