I remember this day

8 years ago. I will never forget where I was and who I was with. I was in utter shock for over a week at the atrocity a human spirit could bring. Then I was pissed. I remember power walking my apartment complex every night for a few weeks. I also remember weighing about 20 pounds more than I do now. I was on a roll (losing a few pounds) and then, my pissiness faded, life took over and pounds came on with a vengeance.

Not this September 11th. Never again. This week finds me down 2.6 pounds. Yeah for me since I had to miss one workout due to a parent night school meeting (I was slightly pissed), had to do EA Sports Active on Monday since both gyms were closed and ate a small piece of cake (another damn birthday - I work on a team of 8 people and 2 birthdays in 3 weeks). According to original scale, I am down 98 pounds (I know, stop doing that!!). I am creeping up on that century mark. I am also creeping down closer to a "normal" weight range.

That is my update for now. Hopefully you all are well. I will be thinking today of how fortunate we are to be where here, living well (even if it is not exactly where we want to be).

Congrats on your loss!! I weigh in on Monday and I am hoping that I have a bigger loss than last week...its been a little harder this week to eat so that might help or hurt me. Your almost there...and doing great!!

Congrats on another good weight loss this week. Even though you had to adjust some of your workouts, you still had GREAT success!

Like most of us, I will never forget 9-11-01.I had just dropped off my oldest daughter at school and was driving across town to my school when I heard the news on the radio. I couldn't believe it! They were describing what they were seeing on their TV screen as the second plane hit the towers. I got to work and ran to my classroom to call my house. My other two kids were still at home with their dad. They started telling me about something going on in DC, too. I went to another classroom where a teacher had a TV on and watched in horror. The hardest part of the day was right before lunch when the principal came on the speaker system to tell the kids we were all safe and not to worry. Some of my second graders then started talking about how cool it was to see the planes crash into the buildings. I started to cry and had to explain to them how real people had lost their lives and that it wasn't a movie or TV show they had seen that morning on TV.
