Here I go again! Several years later and 30 lbs heavier...again! Ugh!
COVID 19 hit and all shuts down! Boredom set in and 2 bowls of ice cream satisfies boredom on a 95 degree day! That about sums up the weight gain.
Now that everything opened up, a group of us went to an outdoor restaurant for dinner. (our social distance was a fail here.... ugh :(...) My daughter in laws mother loves taking group pics and here we all are. I was mortified to see it. I knew I gained weight but the image-YIKES. To make things worse she plastered it on Facebook. As much as I adore her, she should have asked our permission prior.
All that said, i turned it into a positive and made myself a promise to lose 30 pounds by end of October. Our mountain bike trail trip (same group of peeps) is scheduled for then and those photos will be telling a different story. Whether C-19 cancels our trip or not..... I am doing this for myself. I've denied/ignored my gain although little signs like my knees hurting again are messages to say..... HELLO, time to turn it around.... not for vanity of a dumb picture, but for my health and well being.

    Hope your new job is going will. Not doing real well with the diet but I did walk more than I normally do. We're off this week to see Drs. and the kids in Virginia. We're leaving the motor home in MI since we have to come back here for my husband's high school reunion. Then the plan is to head to Newfoundland for the summer. Take care. emoticon

    Happy Easter. Hope all is well. I'm back sliding a bit since we've been going out too much but I'll be back on track later this week. We're in Benson, AZ which is near Tucson visiting more friends. We'll be heading out later this week and will get a chance to be on our own until mid month. That should get me back on track. Take care. emoticon

    Congrats on getting below 160. Keep up the excellent work. Not doing too badly but I could do better...still too much socializing. Have a good week. emoticon

    Hope you had a good week. We've been working hard and walking between 4 and 5 miles a day. This will slow down though since we'll be headed to Yuma and San Diego soon. Lost another 2 pounds but again, it will be harder when we get to San Diego. Have a good week and keep it up. emoticon
