My Weight Loss Journey Journal…

So, today has been an odd day for me! But I had a Great Surprise and Success Validation!!

My wife had a Family Fun Day at her work today. So, my niece and I went with my four children to take part… Support my wife!

When we got there… All the workers had on alike company T-Shirts! And of course being the heckler that I am… I ask where my T-Shirt was? And why am I not part of the team? lol So, one of the workers… Pulled me aside and said… “I will go get you one cause you are on our team!” I thanked her but whispered… That is ok… You probably won’t have one that will fit me… (On top of the stress of the children running around… And the fact that I am working on school issues… There is no way… I cannot handle/dealing with it not fitting me… That will push me over the edge!!)

A few minutes later out she came with a “Team” shirt for me! OMG! Me and my big mouth!! My blood pressure rose really fast… Really high! (I can tell because I can feel the pressure in my eyes!) She shhh’d me off to the restroom to change into my team shirt… I closed the bathroom door and could have cried!!! Her comment of: of course we have one to fit you! Rang in my ears… Ready for disappointment and disgust …. I looked at the tag… 3XL. FYI – my closet is full of 4XL, 5XL and even 6XL’s! Truthfully, I should not be wearing some of the 4XL’s they are too tight and It looks like there are two pigs wrestling under a blanket! Lol. I stood there trying to keep my composure… Took a deep breath, took off my shirt and put the company one on! I almost passed out right, then and there!! It fit!!! Coming out of the bathroom… I tugged at the shirt… To make sure it was not sticking tight like spandex… Lol. My wife said see! You are making big changes! I told you!! (I hate when she is right! lol)

I went back out to the events showing off my Team Shirt!!!!

Unbelievable! I am still wearing it 3 hours later!!! So, happy, proud and excited to keep going!!!!

Tired… Oh, so Tired…

Yet another terrible night of sleep for us! Youngest son was up at 1:30. @2:00 baby talking and singing. @3:30 made the dog Yelp… Not sure if he kicked her off the lounge in our room or what actually occurred? @4:00 My wife told him that if we had to talk with him again that he would lose his iPad for the day. I so tired can’t see straight… I know I should get up with him and go downstairs so My wife can sleep but I just can’t. @ 5:00 not sure when Koby went back into his room but I Was awakened by the sound of him playing with his fan! Can’t risk him waking the rest of them the house… Finally, got up with him at 5:25. Coming downstairs with him, being tired and out of it… I missed a stair, hurling myself down the steps… Once at the bottom my ankle hurts! Oh, these are the Days of my life!

Well, it was a Hot one today!! I was a dripping, huffing, puffing mess but I got my 50 flights of stairs done tonight! Special thanks goes out to Sarah & Jennifer for coming out to support me! I am not sure they got much out of it except the camaraderie and conversation! But ladies I truly appreciate your support more than words can express! Thank you!

CONFESSION & Reality:

I hate house guests… No matter who it is… Lol! Sister in law in from South Carolina!

Cheated bad last night with Chinese… And I did not get steamed veggies! Grr! Feeling crappy today… Swollen hands… Imagine that!!

But increasing my water intake today to flush it out! Lesson learned!! (Until next time!). Lol

Hope you all have a GREAT day! Stay strong and HEALTHY!!
