Hello/Weekly Smile

Hello and good morning to everyone. I woke up to the sound of rain, a wonderful surprise. On the rare chance we actually get rain here it always seems to happen during the midnight hours, when I am sound asleep and can’t enjoy it.

My week was actually pretty good. My ocd thoughts were very hard to deal with but I am trying hard not to give into them. It’s extremely frustrating but one day at a time they say.

I did manage to get some appointments taken care of and I went to the gym a couple of times. So thatΒ is a good thing.

Sunday the family gathered at my parents house for my nephews birthday.Β  Its always nice when we get together.

So what made me smile? Besides family, this week I am smiling because I lost 5 pounds. 5 pounds isn’t much but that now brings my total to 20 pounds lost.

The good news is I am taking my time. I am not stressing on loosing weight and not starving myself to lose it quickly. I set a goal of 2-3 pounds a week and that is very easy for me. So yay me! I still have a ways to go but like I said earlier, one day at a time.

Hope your Monday is filled with tons of smiles, laughter, and love.

Head on over to Trent’s Page for more on the weekly smile and to read what others are smiling about.

  1. Glad you’re trying to control your thoughts and you lost weight. And waking up to rain is amazing. I went to sleep while it rained last night and it was so peaceful.

  2. Congrats on the weight loss! I’m trying to lose weight right now as well and it can be a struggle sometimes, especially with the holidays approaching! What have your strategies been? The past couple months I’ve done intermittent fasting, which has worked pretty well without me having to give up anything (I don’t like feeling deprived lol). In the past I had success with weight watchers, I just can’t afford that monthly bill and the points system will be triggering for me right now πŸ™ˆ
    I wish you continued success and I pray for relief for you for your OCD, I know the distress it can cause πŸ’•

    1. Thank you for the prayers I can definitely use those. Ocd sure has its way of turning a good day into a terrible one so keep those prayers coming please 😁 Also as far as the dieting goes the only thing I am really doing differently is cutting back on my late-night ice-cream binge. I used to eat 2 bowls a day, one being at night before bed. So I stopped doing that and I walk the treadmill at the gym. Those are the only big things I have done differently.

  3. Many congratulations on your weight loss. I was once over 200 lbs. – it took me many years to get to my current weight of around 130 lbs. It is still a struggle to eat properly.
