Isn't it funny how you lose track of what day of the week it is when you are off of work? Today is Thursday, right?
Today I got this cute candy bouquet from the girls at my work. Wasn't that so sweet of them?! As a weird coincidence, they contacted Candid Gift Designs to order it for me. CGD happens to be my owned by my sister-in-law Melissa, so my sweet treat was delivered by one of my favorite people. That bouquet brings me to my gratitude for today, for sweet reminders of friendship and care. Thanks you guys, I love my bouquet and am so touched that you thought of me.
I am so thrilled to report that I ate like a normal person today! Wohoo! Seriously, I think it is the first time in months that something I ate didn't make me sick. I am still being very cautious, but I actually had a meal tonight rather than a few bites here and there to help carry me through. I may never eat jello again!! So far I am down almost 20 pounds. I am not sure where it is missing from (as I am still quite pudgy) but the scale says 18.5 as of this morning. I have some metablolic issues (seriously, I am a mess) that makes it very hard to lose weight. I am all about silver linings, so that is it from the whole gallbladder mess, that because of it I finally lost some weight. So while I am still a little scared to find out what I can and can't eat I am also scared that I am going to gain the weight back. I really want to build on that loss and lose more which will mean exercising once I am cleared to. I am not a big exerciser so that is going to take some motivation.
