Today I am down another 1.4 pounds from last week. That brings the grand total to over 23 pounds, I think (sorry, blogging fast this morning so no time to confirm my numbers but, if you're interested, you can do the math as all my numbers are in last Friday's post below). With one week to go before departure for Mexico, I am very happy with this. :-)
The funny thing is that the more weight I lose, the more "bad" details I see with my body. I don't remember noticing these things 23 pounds ago (and I won't enumerate them here and give them even more power to obsess me!). But, since I am noticing them now (or allowing myself to notice them maybe), they are troubling me. So I have to spend a lot of energy focusing on the loss, the clothes that feel and fit better, etc. I know I'll probably never feel perfect and somehow have to come to terms with that...again.
Got up early this morning and walked with DB to our local farmers market (just 4 blocks from our house). The produce, etc. was beautiful, but...wow...EXPENSIVE. I used to go to farmers markets once a week to get the freshest/in-season stuff, but stopped (now I remember) because things were cheaper at Trader Joes. Sad, but true. But we splurged on a few things -- fresh cherries, corn on the cob, cabbage, yellow squash and radishes. I'll figure out some concoction to make tomorrow night with all this (minus the cherries which DB and my office will eat today!). DB is out of town again all next week on business so I'll be back to all salads!! This serves the dual purpose of getting off that last little bit of weight before vacation and making me so sick of lettuce-type food that I won't feel bad about not risking lettuce in Mexico. ;-)
Super busy weekend coming up: birthday party/dinner for a friend tonight, hardwood floor repair at the house all day tomorrow starting at 8 am (yawn, I'm tired already!), yoga, pre-vacation pedicure and brow wax, shopping for final stuff for vacation and birthday gifts for one of the grandkids and (hopefully) Raconteurs show on Sunday night (tickets go on sale in about an hour and a half and we're crossing our fingers!). Oh yeah, I've got to fit another gym or yoga in there somewhere on Sunday...and I will. :-)
Wishing everyone a great weekend!
