I have discovered a wonderful thing about my blogging. Less and less of my blogging entries are about the band, dieting and exercising. I am discovering so many other beautiful parts of my life to write about. Do you notice it too? Are your struggles with weight issues are taking up less of your thoughts also?
This is not to say that I should not remain vigilant. Weighing on Mr. Scale will be a daily occurance for the rest of my life. I will never let pounds "creep" up on me. If there is an extra pound on that scale, I am dayum sure gonna address it! Why did it happen and do whatever needs to be done to correct it!
I now have so much more time to spend thinking and blogging about joys of my life instead of weight battles. Anyone who follows my blog is sure to know that I absolutely LOVE being Grandma. I have worked 32 years of my life and on the verge of retiring so that I can devote more time to my girls. I have always been a working Mom, I missed out on so much pleasure with my own daughter. Spoiling my grandchildren is my idea of fun. They grow up so fast and before I am know it, hanging around Grandparents will no longer be cool. Good thing I have 3 adult children, so I am sure I will have replacements!
My newfound healthy life is affording me so much time to explore new hobbies and interests!
My wish for today is that all banders will find themselves in this same place. Today I realized that I have not counted calories, measured portions or stressed about exercising or dieting in over two months. I don't have to think about it thanks to my band.
Happy Saturday to everyone!
