Today I went to WW weigh in. I thought I might be up but I was down .8 of a pound. A loss is a loss so I was happy. The problem is I was down more during the week but I ate stir fry veggies and I loaded it down with high sodium teriyaki sauce and so my rings were not as big today. Oh well that means maybe next week my loss will not start with a point. I am really settled into this program ...finally!! It really took me a long time to get into gear. My exercise has helped a lot. You know I made a mistake today and I tracked my weight and then it said I hit my goal. I looked and found out I had typed in the wrong number. Sooo they changed my points even though I went back and changed my weight. It says 32 points and my goal is 29 so I reset according to the settings but it says 29 with a red flag which means they still think I should be doing 32. Geez I can mess up anything. Oh well life goes on.
I am still shopping in my closet and loving it. This afternoon I plan to clean the closet out and put all the things that do not fit on one shelf of my cupboard and then everything in my closet will fit perfectly. Hopefully I will be able to empty that top shelf one item at a time. This is so much fun!!.
I used to dread trying on cloting because they just did not fit but now I look forward to it and I always get a pleasant surprise. My life is so much happier .
Ok but lets get serious. Thanksgiving!! It is not my favorite holiday because I do not like to take a whole day and center it around eating. It is just no good for me. I have a very small family. Even my extended family is not large so I do not have a lot of family around for that day. It is just about a huge pig-out day. I am going to my daughter's house and she will have her twins there and that is fun. I usually try to give them an advent calendar at Thanksgiving. I will do that again. Then the day after Thanksgiving I will start my decorating for Christmas. I think it will be difficult this year because I will have surgery on the 20th of Dec and I have no idea who will take it down. I am going to have bone spur taken off of my heel and I am supposed to be in bed for from six to eight weeks and so exercise will be at a premium. I have to get through this and then the Christmas holidays without putting on any weight. It will not be easy but I am determined to do it.
This will be a big challenge to get through this and be lighter!!. Hopefully I can do it.

    Sometimes life tells us we have to adjust, and you will. Make sure you have loads of "special" snacks in the house, just for you... and eat only them when you feel like you need a snack. You can still do upper body exercises and a calorie burned is a calorie burned. Treat yourself good, and your body will treat you good. best of luck with the surgery.
