Lora is doing the happy dance all over the place! I came home from church this morning to find my dear brother-in-law hooking up all the necessary cables to my trusty PC and putting her (yep...my PC's a she) back where she belongs!
Unfortunately all of my previous e-mail was lost so if you sent me a note on my home e-mail in the past week - please re-send it!
Another interesting thing happened this morning. My youngest sister called me to tell me she ran into an old friend of mine last night. We're going back about 30 years here.... It was guy friend and someone I dated a few times. He asked all the pertinent questions one asks when they are talking about a blast from the past. Thankfully he didn't ask her my weight! Of course - who asks that question...but it sure made me think!
Would I want to run into this guy now? No siree! Especially since he mentioned to my sister how pretty he'd always thought I was. Yeah right! What would he say if he saw me NOW? Hey Lora - great rolls you have there....
Which made me recoil a bit at the idea. And then surprisingly I felt this new surge of motivation. I began to think of all the people I might run into that remembered me in my BC days (before chubbiness) and I decided to run with this new found spark of resolve. Every time I want to put something in my mouth that I know I probably shouldn't - which is about 90-% of the time!) I'm going to remember this guy. I'm calling this the JR plan. (Those are his initials...I'd never post his name here because God forbid he ever did a Google search on himself and came across this post!)
And it's not that I necessarily care what this guy thinks. Chances are our paths will never cross. And even though I dated him a few times...it wasn't like there were any rockets going off or anything. Nope - he is going to be my generic stand in for all the people who l knew me when. When I had control over my eating. When I exercised regularly and didn't huff and puff going up 3 stairs. When I could bend over and tie my shoes without having to unzip my pants first and stop breathing until the job was done.
So is this weird? Maybe. But I'm reaching for any bit of mojo I can find right now so that I can accomplish my goal.
I've also decided that I will weigh in every Friday. I'm not pleased to say my weight has crept up over the holidays. Not pleased at all! But here it is - my weight last Friday morning was 195.6.
My goal is to post a loss each week. If I can do that...I can win this weight thing. We all can!
So JR - thanks dude!
