Empty Nest, fourth time 'round
Wednesday, June 17, 2020
Tacy moved Monday and there were tears, many tears. This is the 4th time she's left home, granted she was only here 3 months this time. But before this I had not been serious about watching my diet. Just one extra person made a ton of difference, suddenly there was all kinds of food I Should Not even think about and it was hard to avoid, plus the girl likes her take out, especially when you can get a decent cocktail in a Mason Jar! When we got word that her job was prepping for employees to return I kinda lost my mind and cooked and ate. In a matter of days my feet had lost their shape and looked foreign to me. The skin so full and tight, no shape, I wanted to take a pin and pop them like a balloon. It's been a miserable few weeks. I weighed myself today and when I went to check the # all I could do was stare at my feet!!! My toes were normal and I could see the tendons and veins-oh I missed those and my ankles have shape again! Finally I looked at the # and it was down 8 lbs from Monday, in those 2 days I Finally lost all that water... I had been so uncomfortable. I really have got to pay attention to the sodium
Lesson had been learned, I hope it sticks this time - I have work to do!
I miss my girl!
