Weight tracker Wednesday.

I did it! WHEW! I was just a little nervous! I did NOT want to say that I could hit 40 by 40 and not do it! But I am there! Lost one pound this week. 
This week has been weird.  I have gone shopping for clothes (for me, Russ and Daniel) three days this week.  It is hard! I have to force myself to try the smaller size. I can't seem to really see myself for the size that I am just yet.  I still feel the same for the most part!  While I love the great feeling I get from seeing the scale #'s change I don't picture myself as the new size.  Am I making sense?
Anyway, I just know that it feels great to make good choices for my life. I was thinking this morning about the girl that almost quit this season of the Biggest Loser.  She was sooo thrilled to be at such a positive place in her life she was ready to just go home and LIVE! She could care less about the game and the potential money.  It just feels amazing to take control and not let food have such an influence on our mood, our success, our guilt, our peace, our health, and our energy! You do FEEL better when you eat healthy. Sorry yall, but it is true.  I turn 40 on Saturday and I like the face I see in the mirror. I like the wrinkles cause they are on a thinner face. *smile*

I have a whole other story to share! SHOES! Sunday morning I asked daniel to get my plastic tub of summer shoes off the top shelf of the laundry room..... you won't believe what happened.... any substance that could grow mold was COVERED in mold! They plastic flip flops were fine, the stupid crocs were fine, BUT anything leather.... was covered in black, green, white, gray fuzzy mold.  Most had to be tossed. A couple pair could be scrubbed and saved. It was nasty.  Thankful for an 11 year old that enjoyed tossing the nasty ones for me! Sorry I didn't get a picture! It was time to get to church!

Now, it is time to go shoe shopping. Poor me. *smile*
