POST 20: Friday/Weight Loss & Football

It's FRIDAY and I am so excited. This has been the longest week EVER and I am so glad it is over. I have a lot of travel coming up and it starts next week.
Monday I leave for a work meeting in Baltimore, MD and return on Wednesday night late. Hopefully I can make it to class that night, but we'll have to see.
Thursday I leave for San Antonio for my HOV girls weekend! I am so excited...I miss my girls so much and we are going to have a blast! I return to Atlanta on Sunday night and will of course be back in the office bright and early on Monday morning.
Then the 17th I leave on another work trip, this time to Philidelphia, returning on Sunday. Whew! I'm tired already.
I am sure weight loss is a struggle for more than just myself, so I know I have some sympathetic ears out there. I have been working hard to get up and walk with Susan every morning and by some unknown miracle, I have actually done pretty well. I'm still a bit slower than she would like, but I'm getting there. All I know is it is getting cold and my legs burn walking up those hills. As for eating habits, let's just say I have been paying attention, but if I want something I don't deny myself. Well this morning I weighed...and I was down another pound!!!
Yeah, I know...so it's 1 pound, what's the big deal? Well, this pound put me UNDER a huge hurdle and as far as I'm concerned you are reading the blog of a shrinking violet in the making. I'm not going to tell you my ACTUAL weight, but let's just say I used to weigh more than 140...well, as of today, I am UNDER 140. It's huge for me, even though it's not huge.
I'm excited and motivated so that's all that matters at the moment.
Moving on...
Tonight I am going to a high school football game with Kins & Lauren...so excited! Haven't been to a HS football game in forever! I think I have my camera, so I WILL be taking pics to post at a later date.
Have a happy FRIDAY!
