Well as you can see the scale was not kind to me this morning, much better than I thought but still totally out of control so I sat and had a coffee and decided that I really need to get a handle on things. So I decided to start over at Day 1 and set some different goals for myself. First off I am going to list some important events coming up in my life and then I am going to set a new goal for each one of them as they come up.
Mom and Dad's 60th wedding anniversary open house
Birth of new grandbaby
Trip to Vegas to see Garth Brooks
Trip to Banff with my girlfriends
Special friend's wedding
Son #1's wedding
Son #2's wedding
These are all fantastic milestones coming up in my life and as each one approaches I am going to set a goal for myself and see if I can achieve it. The first on is my parent's annivesary open house on July 24th. My goal for that is to weigh in at 265 pounds that morning. It's not an impossible goal and I plan on getting there, so I have 23 days to lose 16.4 pounds. I will weigh in on Thursdays and Sundays plus I will have my TOPS weigh in on Mondays, other than that I am not going near the scale.
Tina, I have a challenge for you ....as we both weigh about the same I would like to see you do the same thing on your blog and I challenge you to see who can meet their goal the fastest. Remember it does not need to be a large lose or a long period of time, just whatever feels comfortable for you.
I will post the other dates as they come up, the list of events is in cronological order but I am not going to publish the next date till the previous one has passed.
Also, please notice I have changed my blog page to a bright sky color as there are only sunny days ahead.
For those of you that were concerned about the swelling in my hands and feet you can rest easy now as I did go to the doctor and it was due to the steroids I was taking. All done now except he has me on a light antibiotic as I have a slight sinus infection.

Hubby and I took the Pugs for a 4 block walk tonight and I feel fantastic after today. It is nice to have a plan in place and I am not one bit hungry this evening.
