So a few things to ramble on about today. First of all I can't believe my little baby is now 3 years old. I just don't know where the time went?
So for his birthday we went up to Lake George for a few days. We had a blast. It is about 4 hours north of NYC and a completely different world. It was very small town in the middle of the mountains and has no traffic!! The have a winter festival every year where they have various activities out on the lake. Now the lake is 36 miles long and a couple of miles wide. This lake is completely frozen. I was freaking out because I just Don trust the fact that I am standing in the middle of a lake and there is only ice between me and a cold death. It was crazy though, people had ATV's snowmobiles, helicopters , planes all on top of this frozen lake. Anyway it was a blast.
We also went to the indoor water park and yes ladies I wore a bathing suit in public. I am actually surprised that I did not feel as uncomfortable as I thought I would. I am definitely making progress on the self esteem and being comfortable in my own skin. The best thing was that I went on the slides and played with my boy in the water and actually had fun without worrying about how I look. Oh the hotel where we stayed had a small pool and water slide also. Well the weight limit on the water slide was 200 pounds!!! I felt good about the fact that I did not have to be nervous that I would break it but come on 200 pounds? That is crazy, a typical grown man weighs that much right? Anyway I would have crumbled into a heap had I had to tell my hubby I could not go on it but thanks to lucy I fit.
So yesterday was weigh in day and I am glad to say I lost 1.6 lbs last week which brings me to 169.2 lbs. Slowly but surely getting there.
So today is ash Wednesday and I have decided to try and give up chocolate for lent. How hard is this? Oh just about as hard as hard can be because I LOVE CHOCOLATE. Anyway I figure it will help out with the weight loss and test my willpower!!
And on to Lucy....I know I have said this before but how crazy does our band get from day to day?? I have a dr's appt tomorrow and was not sure if I should get a fill. So last night I had dinner . I ate a sausage roll ( don't know how to describe this if you are not from the UK but it is sausage wrapped in filo dough sort of ) and beans. It went down no problem and I was thinking hello? lucy? are you still there? So then I thought uh oh my restriction is gone I will get a fill. So move on to today, I only drink coffee in the morning and don't eat until after 1pm. I tried to eat a tuna sandwich. Well lucy only let me eat about a quarter of it??? WTF?? So I have decided that no I will not get a fill tomorrow as I would say 80% of the time my restriction is there and perfect.
Anyway will update if anything exciting happens at drs tomorrow.
have a great day all.
