Coooooooooooooold Monday morning. No more denial that winter is here. Maybe it is the fact that I've been either pregnant or nursing for the past 4 winters (making me insulated, glowing and warmer) but this year it seems really cold to me. Like add another comforter to the bed and brrr... how about a comforter while I watch TV?
Weight loss this week: 4 lbs (not sure HOW I did that - I swear I've been eating)
Total loss to date: 44 lbs
A couple of minor accomplishments. This won't sound like much, but they are emotional victories. There is a local brewery not far from our house here in Madison. We like to go there. When it opened about 9 months ago, I wasn't sure I was going to like eating there, cause the tables seems short, and the chairs tall, and well frankly, I didn't fit under the table well. It was uncomfortable - and this was the table, not even the booth!
We headed over there on Saturday night to have dinner with the girls, and I was leaning back rubbing Porter's back, and realized - not only am I sitting comfortably at this table, but I am sitting comfortably with my legs crossed. I couldn't cross my legs like, what 20 lbs ago. It isn't much, but man, does it feel good.
And in other news, my black LL Bean field coat that I haven't worn in 4 winters, but couldn't bear to donate, fits again. It is big and comfy, just like it was when I bought it, at the LL Bean outlet in Concord NH, oh, like 6 years ago.
Bring on the turkey - I am soooooooooo ready for you!
