2/24/08 It's A Long Road

Sunday, February 24, 2008

My journey is a long road and most of it seems dauntingly uphill right now. After my "gamble" and eating the house down last week, I weighed in at +0.8 pounds up this week. That isn't so bad considering the insatiable appetite I had. I'm leaving for my cruise next Saturday and I know the food will be bountiful. But.... I'm still here and will be. I will never ever give up!

I know my road has been mostly uphill, but I wouldn't trade this journey for anything in the world, cause I'm worth it!

I'm so glad I met all of you along the way!

Thanks for another great week!

    Hey Lynn...no one said this journey was going to follow the easy road. I think we've even had some boulders in the road that we had to detour around but we're still on our journey...to never give up. Your gain was a minimal gain considering how hungry you have been. You should be happy about that.

    So you leave in a few days...I hope you are almost done packing and have a great time in the warm and sunny weather. I say this as we are getting hit with a snow storm, with a weather advisory in effect until tomorrow a.m. I'll think of you this weekend wanting to be with you!! Have fun!! ~Heidi

    HI Lynn, your gamble last week only cost a tiny bit compared to what you learned, yes? It wasn't a mistake - you now know for a fact to stay away from that medicine! And you'll make up that .8 in no time. Likee verybody else I'm jealous of your upcoming cruise but you really deserve it for everything you've done for yourself and for everyone else here! ~~ Mary Lynne

    Gurrrl, if you only saw by how much I'm up... then you'd know for sure that being up .8 is not bad at all. LOL You're going to make it Lynn, you're going to make it!

    Lynn, that road seems extremely daunting... one hill at a time babe! Your cruise will have delicious food but also many opportunities to burn it off... walking around the ship is great! Everywhere you go seems far away... take the stairs not the elevator and "forget things in your room" so you have to go all the way back... (I've never forgotten things on purpose, I just forgot them! the sunscreen, my sunglasses, a book.... etc.) I am so jealous! I know you will have a great time! All three times I went on a cruise I either didn't gain or stayed the same and this was not even trying! Thanks for ALL you do! Kathy

    Lynn~I have learned so much from you and although your road is long and uphill you will follow it and reach the end! It is actually nice to see you are human and have faultered as well as picked yourself back up and continued on your journey. When I first came to F&FFFT I thought Wow! You always had a loss and you were so perfect all the time! I wished I could be like that! I have struggled and struggled and I stay! Because of you! You are truly a big big inspiration to me and I thank God for you everyday. I know I will be able to finish my journey one day too because I have people like you in my life. So go and enjoy your cruise and your journey will continue......CAUSE YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!!!!! Love & Hugs, Wendi

    Hi Lynn, I'm so happy that you have a cruise coming up, and just a week away. I bet you are getting so excited about it. I know that you will love the relaxation and fun time. We use to own a travel agency, and sold cruises by how much weight you wanted to gain, while you were on it. Ha. No seriously, If you just be sure to watch the amount that you eat and the portion size, you should come back just fine. Just don't go overboard. :) Remember the little that you will gain, will come off, when you start to work on it again. Just be sure to enjoy yourself, and have a wonderful time.

    Lynn I'm certainly jealous of the cruise, but can't think of another person who deserves to go on a cruise more than you. I've just read the beginning of your Spark Page again and the wisdom that we have all gained on this journey is amazing. Not a lot of that has made it any easier for us mind you. There are a lot of us on that long road with you. That's the good part, we're travelling together. Have a wonderful time.
    Love Joan
