Feeling Sorry for Myself

Why is it that food is tied to so many of our celebrations. No candy for Valentine's Day and not even a dinner out. It wouldn't serve the situation well to go out and pay for a meal that one can't eat. Chocolate is such a challenge for me. I love the taste.
I finally got the grant off my desk and that is a huge relief. That stress drives me crazy and I found myself eating at it. I tried to eat the right things, but I was not on a three meal schedule, none the less.
I can tell I am losing inches right now but the scale isn't moving like it once did. I only want one or two pounds a week but it is getting harder. I really wonder if I had a schedule that allowed me to exercise every morning and every evening, if it would make a difference. I just can't seem to get my body out of bed at 6 am and go to the bike or the rec.
My thyroid specialist lowered my script for thyroid and I seem to be cold and sleepy again. I am warm once I start to exercise but then I get so cold when I am done.
Well, enough of this rattling. I go see Dr. Barth on Wednesday and I will be elated if his scale is close to the 199 mark.

Hey, now... Inches count too. Wait, that didn't sound quite right, but you know what I mean. See, as we get older, we lose our height and all that has to go somewhere. So if you are losing inches, you are trading them for something, I think.. Did any of that make any sense at all? Laughing at my own self. BTW, I didn't eat any chocolate or go out for dinner either.

I think a little of what you fancy serves you well in the long run! Instead of eating a whole block of Cadbury's chocolate like I used to, I now go to the choc shop and buy one small piece of something really special and have that as a treat. You have to have some sort of sometimes food sometime!! It helps keep the spirits up!!
