Monday morning good news

Okay, it's only good for me, but it helps on a Monday morning.

I weighed this morning, expecting to weigh several pounds more than last week's weigh-in. And to my surprise, I've finally made it 1/3 of the way to my goal of losing 30 pounds by year's end! My clothes don't fit any better; if anything, my jeans aren't as loose, and the crop pants I bought a couple of years ago and wore last summer and fall are too tight to wear. I guess everything's migrating south, weight loss or no weight loss.

School is finally out, so things will be much quieter around here today and until mid-August. I'll be working through at least next week, so quiet means that we'll get a lot more done than we do when people are in here every few minutes interrupting with one problem or another.

So, hooray for this particular Monday morning!

Don't you just love those kind of surprises?! Did you know the average person gains a minimum of 12 pounds a year? Look what you did though...you managed to take off nearly that much in just a couple of months...hoooray!!!!! I say celebrate and go buy a new pair of crops!!
Happy Monday to you!

Thank you, I do love that kind of surprise! It certainly bolstered my resolve to keep trying to lose weight. But I think what's left is heading south, since my clothes aren't any looser!

Okay, Leetie, I'll find someone else to share with. Maybe my sister; she needs to gain some weight.
