My life these past few months has been wonderful! Our youngest moved home for summer break from college, my baby girl (puppy) Ava, had her 1st birthday, Greg and I celebrated our 31st anniversary, and I turned 51 :) Those are just somethings that have happened.
Ava's 1st Birthday Party. Cousins Greta and Ellen :)
My weight loss journey is still going strong after losses and gains, quitting and starting up again. The main thing that is different from a few months ago, is that I FINALLY really realized that my weight doesn't define who I am. I am more comfortable in my own skin. I know, I know, it only took me 50 years to figure that out, but oh well, better late than never! I actually have been taking a few selfies for my Instagram account. I swore I would never ever take a selfie.....Stupid trend and gross I hate my picture. Change! I feel more confident and what the hell, trends aren't only for the young! :)
Oh, I quit Weight Watchers. I wasn't having much success, (My fault) and I was wasting my time and money just messing around. So for the summer, I decided to stop. I am just focusing on low carbs right now. I started June 21st and I am down 12 pounds, so I am sticking with this for a bit :) I am trying not to let my "diet" totally consume my thoughts now. Whatever happens, happens :) I am more than my weight and I tend focus (obsess) too much on one thing and it never ends up good.
Well, that's all for now. I am so glad to be back. I have forgotten how happy I feel sharing my thoughts. It is really very cathartic. It really helps me stay focused, stay organized, and kinda helps give my life a purpose.
You know when you are gone a long time from something you really love? When you go back to it, you feel calm and happy....it feels like coming home :)
