First of all I want to thank everyone for letting me in on the can't miss restaurants. That should be helpful when planning our ADRs.
Good luck with the training. I think you look wonderful. And so happy! I'm going to be running my first 5K in May so if you have any helpful hints or tips I'm all ears!I AM A RUNNER!
How fun to meet with DIS friends! Glad you had a great time. And way to go on the new clippie!Good Morning Friends. I hope everyone is well. After a really bad week I had a great night out Friday with DIS friends from the podcast.
Sometimes our body needs a little wake up and eating more is what it takes. I bet it'll still be gone and I'll cross my fingers it takes a few friends with it!Well.... I tried eating a bit more yesterday too... I ended the day feeling REALLY FULL and I did use all of my points plus a few Flex points. But I didn't feel GUILTY about it and that is a BIG change. And GUESS WHAT??...... After eating MORE than normal for just two days.... I got on the scale this morning and it showed me down more than a full POUND from Friday!! Go figure! Hopefully I can hold onto that loss and maybe drop a bit more before next weigh-in??
I'm pretty sure I couldn't survive that long without my computer. Pretty sad, I know. Way to go on only having a slight gain. Stress alone makes me gain bunches. I'd say you did good!Well - I got home late last night... it's been 2 weeks without a computer and when I weighed this morning I am up 3.5 pounds! I was thrilled--I was sure with the stress of the funeral and clearing out Gpas stuff, the driving and 2 days at Dland that I would be up more than that - so I gave up my 25 lb clippie til I once again have lost those pounds.
Sometimes people say the darnest things. I was told the other day I look amazing and the lady started listing off things she loved about my "new" look. I had to think, "what did you think I looked like before..jeepers!" It's hard to take a compliment when it's said strangely like that. Glad you can laugh about it though!Funny story... well, funny now that the shock has worn off.
I went to visit my grandma in the hospital today. My dad was there and told my grandma that I have lost 30+ pounds since Christmas. My grandma looked at me and said, "you have lost more than 30 pounds since Christmas? Oh Annie, you must have been HUGE!!!! Were you THAT big?? You must have been huge... you rollie pollie!"
At first I was a little.... sad... shocked... but then I laughed and said, "Yes, grandma... I was 30 pounds BIGGER then I am now!!"
It was great to see her and when she is gone, those words will play back in my head and I will giggle.
QOTD: Not really weight loss related but, what are your favorite Disney restaurants and why? What's your favorite meal there?
Way to go on the loss! I'm running my first 5K soon and my goal is also to not come in last. What's a good time goal to strive for for a first race? Should I just concentrate on finishing this first one and work on times later? And what a funny story about your mom! Glad to see your good habits rubbed off on her now!I lost two pounds! I really didn't mean to and expected to be UP two pounds when I got on the scale.
When I started, I always wanted to avoid being last. Now, I am actually in the running for winning my age group sometimes - depending on the size of the race and who shows up. It hasn't happened yet, but I am still hoping it does one of these days.
