Today I went back to Weight Watchers, after a week of journaling and being super careful about what I ate. I was really worried that I would not have lost any weight, but I stepped on the scale and found that I had lost two pounds! Yay for me!
Last week in class they spoke about how losing weight is really hard. It sure is! And once you are over 50 I think it gets even harder! But I am not going to give up!
Our last two cruises Hubby has taken pictures of me, and between my weight, and my new face, I have been one, very unhappy girl!
I know the next couple of weeks will be tough, due to the holidays, but I am not giving up. I really want to look good, and feel good in my body.
You know, the last time I saw my Mom before she died, she said to me: “Don’t be like me, Maribeth. Don’t give up! You can do it!”
Mom was probably my biggest critic in life, so this unprecedented encouragement was a real shock.
I do miss Mom. She may not have been a “Fairy Tale” mother, but I think she did her best. At least, right now, I am hearing her kind words and that is such a gift.
