The key word right now is: maintain. And after this weekend of celebrating Easter....well, let's just say that maintaining was not what I was thinking about at my mom's table! Ha!
The reason I waited two weeks to make the big announcement is because when I jumped on the scales two weeks ago, I thought it was just a freak thing. I didn't want to believe it myself. So, in order to confirm the loss, I decided to wait another week and see if the same number popped up again and it did! Good Friday was truly a GOOD Friday for me!! I even got to wear an old Easter dress that I hadn't worn in a few years to church on Sunday because it fit again!
However, I didn't sleep well Friday night. Alise ended up sleeping with me in our bed (Wayne had the couch) and I kept waking up every two hours. Finally, at 6:30, I got up, got dressed and woke Wayne to let him know that I was leaving to go walking at our local college's old football stadium. I didn't realize how cold it was when I left the house, but it was 48 degrees outside and all I had on was a short sleeved shirt and thin capri walking pants. I froze to death!! So....I decided to JOG - yes, that's j-o-g - around the curves of the track! Can you believe it?!? ME?!? Jog!! Is that crazy or what? I thought I was going to die!! But ya know what? I kinda enjoyed it! Truth is, I'm kinda getting bored with my "power walking" and I've thought, "Man, I wish I could jog and not look stupid!" I can just see myself falling on my face and everyone behind me falling over me! Ha! I went home and told Wayne what I had done and then I said, "Heck! I may just run a marathon one day!" He was like, "Yeah! Right!!" He has no faith! Ha!
Truth is, Wayne has been great! He has sacrificed and worked his tail off to get home in time so that I would have time to walk before the activity center closed! And I love him for it! He has encouraged me and let me go every single night that I wanted to go. I love you, Wayne! Thank you for supporting me! You're the best!!
