It’s been a pretty junky week food wise; some fast food stuff, some Mexican food and snacking. But I’ve felt pretty good and my energy level seems to coming back.
Our travels took us to the Grand Canyon-the most amazing place in North America in my opinion. I had never been before and was simply blown away by the grandeur of this magnificent natural wonder. The skies were clear blue, the temperature was fine and the snow around just added to the beauty. Once again we lucked out with the weather and had a great time walking the rim trail. I got a little tired but I think it was because of the altitude, not the walking.
We went on to see some friends in Phoenix and Palm Springs and are now here in Beverly Hills. It feels so good to be seeing these friends and not just getting complimented on how I look, but also just to feel like a normal person and not self-conscious about my weight. I don’t mind having my photo taken anymore….(no more cropping!) and I seem to be able to eat things most of the time in mixed company without anybody commenting on it.
I seem to be losing slowly right now and I’M VERY HAPPY ABOUT THAT! I know that probably seems odd since I have another 30lbs to lose….but if I lose one lb a week from here on out, that will be just fine with me.
First, I’m hoping it will keep my hair from falling out.
Second, I’m getting really flabby and lose skin on my arms and I need to get ‘home’ so I can start a regular strengthening program.
Third, (and I don’t know if any one else feels this way), but because I was so heavy for so long, I feel thin even at 166 lbs and I’m concerned about how I will look when I lose more weight. My husband (who has been slender all his life) doesn’t quite understand this, but I need time for my head to catch up with my body. And I’m really concerned about wrinkles….so far things are looking pretty good in that department.
That’s it for this week….we are about to head out for dinner and the theater with our dear friends who own a fabulous home built in the 30’s just a few blocks from all the fancy streets in Beverly Hills. We are so fortunate to have such GREAT friends!
Hope everyone has a great week!
