I Never Thought I Would See the Day Again. . .

. . .when I weighed what I weighed when I was a kid. [Or as I like to say to Pooldad "when they don't make a bra in my size."] giggle

Since I have to weigh myself everyday to make sure I not retaining water in my lungs, imagine my surprise when I stepped up and saw this:

Oh, and I discovered my camera weighs 3 pounds exactly:
I knew I was getting really close to the 100 lb mark, but I I never imagined that it would actually happen.  My doctor noticed my weight loss last week. We discussed it and he seemed to be fine with it, but [of course] would like me to gain, not lose.  Me too! Besides the fact I have the boniest rear end going [no plastic or wooden chairs to sit in for Skippy! heehee]  I now understand how all those videos on "America's Funniest Home Videos" of people whose pants suddenly fall down actually happened.  Forget the belt, I think I need to invest in a cool pair of suspenders.  Y'all can see me in suspenders, can't you? Yep. :D

I am eating a lot of small meals throughout the day and I am plowing my way through gallons of ice cream with chocolate sauce and whip cream - yay for low sodium desserts - but I honestly cannot eat more than my body tells me to.  If I am full, I am full.

I am not going to worry about it for now, but if anyone wants to send along some cookies or a cake I wouldn't be averse to that. :wink: I kid, I kid.

I know I owe you a Cherry Blossoms post, but there are 224 pictures to go through and it is hard to pick just a handful because they are all so beautiful.

I'll show you what I mean:
Pretty neat, huh?  And they all look like that. :D

In the meantime I do have a favorite picture out the 224 taken yesterday - so I share with you because it is guaranteed to put a smile on your face:
Happy, happy, happy
Only Wallene

Have the best day you can gang. We'll see ya' on the flipside.

The Cherry Blossoms look beautiful and I can see that you would have a difficult time choosing which photos to post. I'm going to have to add seeing the Cherry Blossoms to my "to do" list!

Cherry blossoms means Spring is here, hooray.

Juli said...

OH honey. Oldest weighs 105. :(

I'd bring you GF pie if you lived closer, and then we could watch TV and enjoy together. ;)

And Wallene.... PRICELESS!

You;re teasing us about the cherry blossoms, aren't you?! Lovely happy photo of dear Wallene. Eeek! yes, you have lost weight dear friend, but you are doing the right thing by eating little and often. As you say, if you;re full, you're full. You can't just keep stuffing it in!! Big hugs to you.

Oh my! Take care of you. The flowers are lovely!

Gorgeous day!

I think I weighed 105 when I was 11. I was well developed already. I would be more than happy to share my abundance now sweetie - if only there were a way...
I would send you baking but I have to refrain from making anything - we have to lose weight for the wedding in June! EEEEK!

Lovely photos of DC! I'll gladly send you some ice cream - It's my nightly undoing of a healthy day of eating well!!

The cherry blossoms are gorgeous, and the shot is so artistically framed, but the picture of Wallene is joy personified. As for the weight loss, you're gonna have to do what I did when I lost so much weight. I used a pillow to cushion my bony backside when I sat down. Didn't eliminate all the discomfort, but it sure did help.
