On the Mend...

Skylar is feeling better already. It's amazing how a couple of doses of antibiotics can change a person. I can tell she is sleeping better, and her appetite is growing as well. Even though she didn't act like she felt that bad, I can definitely tell she feels better now.

I have to thank my mom now. She was really feeling brave yesterday afternoon. She and my sister took my kids and my nephew downtown for Monsters on Main Street. I haven't heard an official count but they were expecting around 1500 kids to be trick-or-treating the downtown businesses. I couldn't get off work in time to go - since they do it before dark - so I very much appreciate my mom taking them especially since they won't be going trick-or-treating tonight. I haven't taken a picture of them in their costumes yet but I will get one of my black cat and Emperor Palpatine (of Star Wars fame) and post it soon.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketUpdate time - stayed the same. And once again I am grateful for that. I weighed in +4 on Monday morning, though that was obviously water retention or it wouldn't all be gone today. Weekends are so hard for me. I think it is mostly because I am surrounded by people that aren't in the same mindset when it comes to food. It is a lot easier when those around you are at least trying to follow the same rules. We had a fish fry at church Sunday afternoon, and it was really hard not to eat more than I did. Don't get me wrong, I did not deny myself as I should have, but quitting when I did was harder than it should have been.

Weekends are the same for me...I understand. Even if it seems like 2 steps forward and 1 back, remember...that's still 1 step closer to your goal. Keep it up!

No gain is good! I am glad your water weight cleared out, mine did too, thankfully. I swear, I sloshed when I walked! Well, not really.

Good for you for maintaining in the face of a Fish Fry...that can be hard!

Good luck this week!

Being surrounded by food people is tricky. It gets me sometimes too. Just keep plugging along and don't let these things sabotage your plan. :)
