Once again, thank you all for the kind words of encouragement; sometimes I feel like I'm writing to read your comments. :)
So last night I sat down and wrote out a list of things I like to do, in order to help me try to narrow down what I 'could' do with myself. I've been seriously trying to tackle this. Of course I believe that sometimes destiny shows up on your doorstep. Other times though, you have to go out and find it. So I'm trying.
During my list, I decided that maybe one of the things I could do in the meantime to help me at least be working towards something, is to start yet another blog. I will not bring this blog to an end by any means. But another blog will have another focus- I originally wanted it to be similar to a travel blog where I could write my adventures and fun things I'm doing...but as I've thought about it today and researched different blogs, I had to be honest with myself and remember that I don't exactly have the funds or the time to travel. So maybe I will just whittle it down to 'fun things to do in OC/LA' for starters...and then as money becomes more available and my travels expand, then the blog can also expand to include other places as well. What do you think? Would you read a blog like that?
As far as my diet is concerned...well, as you know, I haven't been concerned with it since I've been home. However, I've been working really hard the last few months to really absorb the changes I've been trying to make as far as eating, so mostly this weekend brought a lot of guilt and un-satisfaction as I've tried to just 'eat whatever'. Most of the foods I've been eating are straight carbs and sugar. None of it is filling me up, so I just keep eating. The one good thing I can say is that no matter what has happened this weekend, I have not had any soda at all. And I've convinced my sister to try the Fat Flush diet. My mom wants to try it too, but I don't know if she'll last long on it. My sister, however, has a will of steel. So tomorrow we will do one day together before I go home so that she can sample it and see if she likes it. I will continue to eat healthy and workout when I get home. Just eating to eat is not fun like it used to be. :)
My mom did say tonight while I was stretching at one point (we were watching some tv) that she could tell I've lost a ton of weight, which of course made me super happy because we are honest in this family and tell each other the truth. She said it looks as though I've lost at least 5 inches off of my stomach...WOOT! I AM starting to feel so much more comfortable in my skin and clothes...I can tell I'm getting close to the end of the "weight loss" portion of this journey. And then I will enter maintenance...a part of the journey I have never really been on before. It will be exciting and interesting...
Ok friends! XOXO
