Bonus and Better Days

My impulse buy #4,297 was this Foxy necklace. I saw it on a blog (Lucy's?) and was immediately enamored with it. It was $30 USD which I thought was fairly reasonable.  I got it in the mail and loved it as much as I thought I would. Well, yesterday, I looked it up online again just to see the dimensions and it says its reversible! Doh!! So I am wearing it today with the silver and black side. Gotta love a twofer eh?

I got on the scale this morning and I am 249! I know it is because I have not been eating much but hey I will take it. That means I lost 3 lbs this week which is pretty unusual. That also means I have double digits to lose instead of triple. I am also encouraged to be in the 240s again. The lowest I have been on this journey is 248 so after that it will be all new territory. Total so far: 66 lbs.

Better days are coming. My mom always says that and I am slowly able to focus on my future and I really do have SO much to be grateful for. When you are going through a rough time, it is hard to remember that things work out and that you will survive and this too shall pass. I am not terribly excited about the holidays but focusing on friends and family will be my goal this season. I have everything I need so I am not looking for any special gifts. Just spending time with people that I care about is all that matters to me. I still need to figure out something for my mom and I to do on Christmas Eve or Christmas. I suggested we see A Christmas Carol in SF but she was not too hip on it... Maybe we an go see a movie or something... Until next time...

P.S. TOM came to see me today and I am still happy <--- still lost weight!
