Slimmer this Summer Week 10

Hello! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good.

Weight: I stayed the same. 248 - Challenge to stay the same NOT...
Water Consumption: I actually did pretty good with water this week.
Activities: I did not try a new class. I did not get 10K per day

I have failed with this challenge but I am thankful I have maintained through the turmoil also known as my life lately. All I can do is push forward and try harder.  I did get in some walking over the weekend but that was not enough.

I did something this weekend that I have not done in 20+ years. It was really liberating! I wore shorts! I bought a pair at Wal-Mart on Friday and decided to wear them Saturday. I wanted to exchange a top that was too big so I went back and wore the shorts there. All I could think of is "Great, now I am going to be on the People of Walmart website." Well, luckily I did not see any flashes going off so I think I made it out unscathed. No one looked at me funny either. The only person who commented later in the evening was a neighbor of my friend. Lu just told her that it was burns - easier to explain since her English is not very good (She speaks Korean) What is really is, is Necrobiosis Lipoidica Diabeticorum or NLD. I have hidden my legs ALL this time and have spent some days really hot wearing capris or pants but I finally said the heck with it and let my freak flag fly. Actually, I think that the Red Light therapy that I have been doing at Planet Beach has been helping but it is a lot lighter then it used to be so I felt less self-conscious about it. I even bought a 2nd pair so we will see where I wear them next LOL! 

Until next time...


  1. Hello freedom! Love that you finally wore shorts. Sounds like you are getting more and more comfortable in your own body - what an accomplishment! :)

  2. Long may your freak flag wave!!

  3. That's something I'd never heard of before today. Good for you- wearing the shorts! Fly that freak flag girl! Fly it high!

  4. Lol you go girl! Enjoy those shorts!

  5. I'm sorry the NLD is such a pain for you, but hey, your have the right to fly your flag!

    Maintaining is ALWAYS better than gaining...but here's to hoping you MOVE and LOSE this week. Move today so you have ONE day you can at minimum record some exercise. Come on, put on the shorts and MOVE. :D
