365 days and 40 #

Wednesday, May 08, 2019

This is one year since I started again (3rd time) here at SP. I have lost a little over 40 pounds and might have been better if hadn't went a bit wild with the candy and food in general on both Good Friday and Easter. Still all in all I'm happy with a 40 # loss in a year. That is 1/3 of my goal so if all goes well I might be at goal in about 2 more years. Slow and study wins the race. This time, this time - Never quit, never quit !!!

I did good at the would-be writers' party and didn't gain. Had a good meal and only passed on the chips, champagne and desserts (that last one was a bit hard). The class was to be over for a few months but our teacher was a bit overcome by all the appreciation shown and talked into continuing the class. I was not sure if I really wanted to continue but I guess I will for a while longer. I was happy about the wonderful comments I got on my last blog but also feeling a lot of emotions about the class and party in general. Have you ever been upset and irritated by someone who has only been nice to you? One person in the class makes me feel that way. She just seems like such a fake. Maybe I'm the fake and that is why I get upset? Class is tomorrow and I'll see how it goes.

Here's to another year at SP and hopefully another 40 down. Thanks friends.

    Well done on the 40 lbs - that's fabulous. And yes, I have felt irritated by someone who has only ever been nice to me. Twice in fact. Like you I felt the people in question were fake. The first time I was soon proved correct. The second time it took me quite a while to work out what my underlying assumptions and emotions were. Once I sussed that, the irritation melted away 'cos she no longer had any impact on me. Hopefully you'll figure it out but one thing is for certain - you're NOT a fake.

    40 lbs is impressive. Glad you have decided to continue with the course. Yes sometimes people rub us the wrong way. I think you have great instincts. You are not the fake. Have an incredible day!
