It seems like Saturday’s night is my time to reflect on my week. It was a good one. I had 2 nice compliments on my weight loss this week. The first came from my brother-in-law. Now BIL and I have a long history of teasing, tormenting and picking at one another from way back, we enjoy these activities. But last Sunday he said “You are really looking good. I can tell you’ve been working hard and I’m proud of you.” He left the room then almost like he was embarrassed. It really did mean a lot coming from him.
The second compliment came from a cafeteria lady at school. She said I looked good and asked how much I have lost and then asked the hardest question I get asked about my weight “How in the world have you managed to stay motivated for almost 2 whole years?” What do I tell people when they ask this? “If I don’t keep losing my husband is going to turn me up and spank my ass!”? I just never know how to answer. So I just tell them my husband is a great motivator. It’s the truth, just not the whole truth.
My boy turns 20 on Monday. Twenty!! I just can’t believe it. I am going to be down to one teenager. And everyone knows that’s really plenty! He was going to be working in the theater all weekend so we didn’t go down. Collin went down to paint LJ room and hang pictures and just in general make his room look better as a birthday gift to him. I think it’s a gift that LJ is really going to love.
