I am writing this from one of my favorite happy places: Barnes & Noble’s.
Today is the first day I’ve been out in a number of months that wasn’t a doctor’s office. All week I planned on going to Church today, but The Husband was under the weather. This was a big surprise because it is usually me who isn’t feeling well. After resting a couple of extra hours and taking some ibuprofen and some antihystamine, he felt well enough to get out with me. Since I didn’t want to over exert him, we decided on B&N for a nearby restaurant and easy access. To make sure he had more rest, I put on make-up and chose the same things planned to wear for Church. It took a while and he was very appreciative of the results, which made me smile.
Getting out has simply done me a world of good. The last 600 pounds or so are gone. It was the last of the stress weight. Also, in getting ready it was easy to see I have indeed lost weight! And, just to warn you, I’m not going to weigh myself except for every three months. Weighing every week just makes me sad if I haven’t lost as much as I feel I should’ve lost. Plus, because I’m in a wheelchair, I have to use a wheelchair scale and this is something I must schedule with a local rehab place.
Now it is time for my treat: A café mocha. Ta ta ya’ll.
