Wednesday Musings

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Some random events going on in my life:

- Hit a low water mark on the scale this morning -- 180.2! Exactly 86 pounds lost now, and just a scant 1.2 pounds more to go to hit my target and officially "be normal" on the BMI scale! Can't speak for the rest of me, but that part will eventually be normal!

- Each day the weather forecast for this Saturday keeps getting colder! May not even break 30F, windy, chance of snow! Yes, I know it is winter and this is all normal, but I am running in an outdoor 5K on Saturday! Glad I have warm running attire! Today: mid 60's!!

- My DW's stepdaughter is having some major financial struggles. Won't go into all the details, but she and her 2 children are at risk of losing the roof over their heads (a double wide trailer they are renting). When my DW told me this yesterday, I gave it some serious thought as to what we can do, and have proposed they come live with us if they are evicted. The one challenge is that the space we can let them use needs to be renovated a little. The one room that the previous owners used as a bedroom, which was carpeted, got flooded out in the winter of 2010 (worst snow year EVER!), so I would need to get it carpeted (the reason for the flooding has been fixed), and the bathroom ceiling needs to be repaired, as we had a pipe leak last year.

- Saw my dentist this morning. Chompers in A-OK shape!

Well, gotta get back to work....

    Chomping at the bit huh? (Sorry, bad pun.) Congrats on the weight loss.

    Congratulations on the weight loss! We have a very similar issue going on with our oldest kid and the living situation, down to the flooded room that needs to be renovated. LOL Just happy we have a big enough house to accommodate them, although it's going to be tough with 3 more animals and a 4-year old. I'm wondering how it'll all affect my weight loss. Good luck with it. :)

    emoticon on your progress so far. I hope the weather cooperates for your run this weekend.

    Has your daughter checked with any of the agencies about low cost housing? People with children get priority. It's good that you have a place for them to stay until things get better. It's really hard on the children to be uprooted. I've been there, done that but I did survive.

    Congrats on the good Dentist visit! That's very good news!
    Awesome about being so close to your goal! If you don't mind, I have a thought. I'm not an expert because i'm still basically at the beginning of my journey (6 months with the band) and I'm still getting to know you. Is extra skin an issue maybe? or at least 1.2 lbs of it. Just a positive thought, you might already have a healthy BMI medically speaking.
    Sorry to hear about the bad news, hope all is well. Have a great day!

    Way to go! I know with your focus you will get that pesky last 1.2 off and maintain at a healthier weight.
