Mini-Miracle

In a much-needed mini-miracle, when I went to weigh in at Weight Watchers, they had the keys I had managed to lose track of last week. Phew.......I am not a responsible adult anymore when it comes to keys! I just can't seem to keep track of them anymore!

I've officially lost 13 pounds now since joining WW's. That's more weight than I lost in 6 months back in the 80's when I did WW's when it was much more difficult and required a LOT more food preparation and obsession. Basically I've decided to be hungry most of the time. But I was hungry most of the time when I was eating everything I wanted to and was gaining weight. So I guess I'll keep at it a while longer. Losing 13 pounds in about 2-1/2 months makes me feel like I'm actually getting somewhere with my deprivation.

Still scratching.

Still crocheting.

Reading a new book.

Jewel and I get to hang out tomorrow, so it's up and at 'em early.

I ordered a bathing suit suitable for boobless women. I'm expecting it to arrive soon. I'm supposed to be able to put my prosthetics in pockets in the right spots, and so then I'll be able to visit the pool. I'm very skeptical of buying attire that can't be tried on, when I have huge fitting issues these days. It'll be interesting. It's ugly, but it's less ugly than most of the other ugly swimsuits for fat girls with mastectomies. Another reason to lose weight. Maybe I can actually get down to a weight that has minorly ugly swim suits instead the majorly ugly ones.

Scratch, scratch.

I'm glad about the found keys, but even more glad about the lost weight.

Love, Polyanna

Have you tried Lands' End for bathing suits? They are always extremely helpful on the phone and their products are fabulous.

Good for you. Back in Jan I started a DMEL diet (Do More Eat Less). But while I actually was eating less I really wasn't doing much more and therefore not losing much. So at the first Apr I started doing extra walking, I shoot for a total of 10,000 steps a day, which is about an extra 6,000 steps. So since the first of April I have lost about 10 pounds.
