Accidental discovery...

I am so missing this blogging thing.  I have been woefully amiss in my posting and I need to remedy this!  So I was taking a little stroll down memory lane today.  One of the kids made a statement of some sort at school today and it reminded me of something I did last summer.  Totally immaterial what it was. (um, no, I don't remember, so just leave me alone!  :) )

ANYWHO, I was looking at my blogging history and I noticed how few I have done as of late and how I peaked out during BIRTHDAY MONTH!!  It is only a short time, really, to birthday month, so I am thinking about what I might want to do for myself.  I have a few things in mind, both before, during and after the fine month of July..... but I digress.

During my musings, and teaching art, and answering questions and cursing the darkness- oh wait -  not that.  It did become sunny today!  Anyway, during that time, I came across my actual Birfday post and scrolled through the pix.  I was somewhat surprised by the pictures from that day.  Intellectually I know I have lost about 45 pounds, but .....

At Triple B! (post workout hair!)
For those of you who have been following this blog for a while, you have seen the change happening I imagine!  If you are a new blogstalker, maybe you, like me, are amazed by this change.  I'm shocked virtually everyday when I look in the mirror.
Every.  Single.  Day.

It is a challenge to eat well every day, and it is important for me that I get some activity in as well.  I always feel like I am one Wheat Thins binge away from 65 pounds again.

Thank heaven for my Loseit friends who do their best to help make every day a green arrow day!  And thank heaven for Triple B!

This morning I found I had lost a little over a pound again, so I am only 10 pounds away from my final goal!  Not sure I will know what to do with myself then, maintenance scares the hell out of me.  I have a few new things going on right now, one of which is running.  I have a few 5K's planned for the summer, and might be able to swing a 10 K in the fall....  that will help when I hit that "rest of my life" time that will be coming.

But I am going to revel in the joy of the morning, and watch the first big thunderstorm of the spring that is going on right now!

Until next time, be a joy giver y'all!
