DOING GOOD... and... GROWING UP

I haven't posted for a while, I frankly didn't have anything interesting to say. I have started walking on the treadmill and trying to stay away from the scale. I keep telling myself only once a week but it's hard lol.

I have however paid the price for eating to fast, more then once. It really HURTS!... I don't chew enough and boy do I ever feel it. It totally stops me in my tracks...and even if I have only had the one bite....I am done after feeling that pain. It can take some time before it finally works it's way down. As uncomfortable as it is, I am thankful that my new anatomy is doing exactly what it's supposed to.

If I had one frustration it is ..I miss being able to gulp down a good glass of cold water. Nothing beats that when u are thirsty. Now, even a gulp of water , I feel. I have to take it easy because my new stumach acts like a funnel. So I sip alot lol.

Since my food intake is so limited now, what I do eat is all GOOD.. food. No more soda or crap like that and lots of water. I have already seen a difference in my skin. I never had severe acne but even now into my 40's I had blemishes. My skin now is softer, and alot more clear than it's been in years.

So it's all good.
------------------------------------------

I had to post something I got from my friend Sue in an email. I know alot of ppl who will get a kick out of it and recognise themselves. I know I did...although for the record...I CAN STILL SAY THERE ARE A COUPLE I HAVEN'T DONE YET!


25 SIGNS YOU HAVE GROWN UP

25. Your houseplants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.

24. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.

23. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.

22. 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.

21. You hear your favorite song in an elevator.

20. You watch the Weather Channel.

19. Your friends marry and divorce instead of "hook up" and "break up."

18. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14

17. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."

16. You're the one calling the police because those %&@# kids next door won't turn down the stereo.

15. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.

14. You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.

13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.

12. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonald's leftovers.

11. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.

10. You take naps.

9. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one.

8. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.

7. You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.

6. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good sh*t."

5. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.

4. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never going to drink that much again."

3. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work

2. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate them instead of asking "What the hell happened?"
... and the number one sign you are getting old is:

1. You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you and can't find one to save your sorry old a**.

Then you forward it to a bunch of old friends 'cause you know they'll enjoy it.

Like I told you earlier...you are doing awesome with your weightloss! Keep up the good work!

As far as the "list" is concerned, thankfully there were a few that I could say didn't apply to me yet, but I know the time is a-coming! Glad you liked it! LOL
