To comment on a few comments on yesterday's post.
You know Tony hit the nail on the head when he said, "Aren't your friends supposed to be your support network?" Well people, that's why I have you. I only have one friend that supports me. And I've got my girls and their families of course.
And I agree with Candace that if looking like me is supposed to be "before" then I'll take healthy me any ole' day.
And Grammy, yea, there sure a lot more wrinkles aren't there? That stuff happens to us older weight loss people and the worst part is the skin doesn't go back to the way it was. It just loses all it's elasticity when it gets older.
Hmmm, never thought of posting a picture with my shotgun. When I get one I'll have to have to do that. I've got a picture of my granddaughter in her full army gear holding her "big" gun and she looks so weird. Well, here are her before and during army pictures. You be the judge.
She served a tour in Iraq and thankfully made it home safely last fall. She is a tiny thing and even lost weight while in Iraq. She said they didn't have uniforms small enough for her and she just had to keep hitching up her britches.
We had frost here this morning. How about you? Fall has fell, for sure here in the mountains. I was wrong about the leaves. They still aren't at peak so the pictures will have to wait. Maybe just another week. So please be patient. There's a road up here called the "Scenic Highway." It's about 15-20 miles of nothing except scenery. No houses or businesses or anything except God's handy work. It traverses a mountain top between here and Snowshoe. The speed limit is 45 MPH the whole way and is all state forest. Most of the year there is NO traffic on this road but in the fall you can't go one mile without passing several vehicles. They don't even use any snow removal equipment on it in the winter and close the thing down. They keep it closed all winter for winter sports people. People can cross country ski there or take their snow mobiles on it and have some fun. That's where the prettiest fall pictures can be taken and is where I will go.
My eating hasn't been too good the past couple of days. It seems like my body is craving certain things. One day I couldn't get enough fruit and just kept eating and eating it. So much so that I had to resort to canned fruit because I ran out of the fresh stuff. Then yesterday it was beef. Probably because I hadn't had any for at least 3 weeks. When I get these type of cravings it's not at all like the cravings for the chips and candy. Those I can sometimes talk myself out of, but the cravings that I've had the past few days almost hurt. Does that happen to you? Or am I just an odd old lady?
Enjoy your weekend.
