2020-02-22 Today would have been my sister's... 85th birthday -- I miss her.

Saturday, February 22, 2020

this blog started as a response to another's blog

Well, I don't have a "WHY list".

Maybe because I am still at the "I would like to.... "
rather than the "I am (desperately?) committed to ...." stage of weight loss.

At this point in time..
My goal is to just keep trying to eat a little bit healthier ... every time I eat..

and

hopefully once I have recovered from the surgery that is supposed to cure
the constant pain when moving and lingering pain from moving,

I will be able to move with energy and purpose and find my happy place.

--- At what ever weight I weigh on any particular day ---

Yes I would like to be one of those thin people...
I have not been a thin person since I was 5 years old
In the first year of being in school I went from a thin kid to a round kid
and have been a round person ever since...

I tend to remind myself that once my body is cremated... I will be the perfect weight for my bone density, height and frame size.

So, I only need to weigh a weight that I feel good weighing, no matter what the scale number reads. A weight that allows me to accomplish anything that I choose to do. I do not need to look like anyone else's idea of what I should appear to be. I only need to love myself...
and be the best friend I can be to .... me,,, myself,,,, and ... I . ..

    Praying for you and your surgery plus your medical team. I have only been little when I was a new baby—started gaining from then until I joined SP and TOPS where I have lost over 40 lbs but did regain 20 after Ashley died. I am with you, I don’t want to be a skinny Minnie but do want to be smaller than I am now.

    I am very fortunate to still have my brother and sister. Wally is 75 and MaryAnn is 58. Hopefully we will be around several more years.

    I’m with you... round people of the world unite! I don’t want to be thin, but thinner would be nice. My skin is definitely saggier with the weight I’ve lost, and I’m finding wrinkles instead of muscles.

    I didn’t know you were going to have surgery... do you know when? I hope it goes well.

    I never had any sisters or brothers, so can only imagine how you must miss her. I’ve been a loner most of my life.

    Take care of yourself,
    Hugs, Gail
