It seems to me that everyone with a journal blog here is sad, depressed or fighting off something. How sad to see so many broken spirits in one place.
I too am sad and depressed, but I am able to get moments of bright spots in life. I feel semi-retired in the fact that I’ve been working continuously for a long long long long time so that today I’ve lucky to be where I am today. I’m not rich, I do not live in a fantastic place… but where I live is awesome for my means and everything I’ve ever wanted in a house. [I love you house w/a fenced yard and 2 car garage!!]
I am grateful to God I met my dog companion that’s been with me every single day of his life since he was born. He came to me EXACTLY when I needed him.. and I actually birthed the litter of 10 he came from. I love my dog so much, I can’t bear to think of later and being w/o him. Bigger dog so I estimate live to 13? Making him half way through his life…. just like me in life. I love my dog!
I’m not sure what’s happening with my body but I’ve been shedding weight like crazy. My 40 pound loss is solid. I’ve gained/loss weight in a 4 pound radius of 141 but I always get back to 141. Firstly I want to focus on losing just 2 pounds to be in the 130’s!!!! woohoo I haven’t been that weight since high school! It feels so nice to fit into everything I put on and it looks good, to where I don’t see fat bulging over my waist pants. And I can’t get over how many years it took off my appearance. I’m in my early 50’s but could pass for someone in their late 20’s from a distance. That’s how good my body looks.
I’m going on a trip soon too, in about 2 weeks. I’m anxious and want to get it over with lol but I need to start packing. And I need to be happy about going. Wait till they see how much weight I lost. Maybe 40 pounds isn’t a big number like 82 pounds? But it is significant enough to warrant buying new pants. I cannot wear a size 14 with a belt, it’s way too big and looks terrible. A size 12 looks terrible. If I keep losing weight I will go down to a size 7/8. One step at a time.
