Friday was a really good day :-)

I started my day off early.  I was at the cell phone store at 7:15 to get in line for my new iPhone.  I was the only one there!  Long story short, store opened at 9 and I was first in line.  There was very few distributed to each store so I was glad I went early.  I got a 32 gig white iPhone 4S and they told me they only got 3 of those in!  Then I went to yoga.  My favorite instructor Tonia was there!  I don't usually get to go to classes during the day so it was a treat.  During the song by Bruno Mars "Just the way you are" she said "this song's for you Kim because you are amazing.  Awe.  That made me feel so good.  I gave her a big hug after the class, it was nice.  Then I went to my Weight Watcher's meeting.  I really had no idea how much I had lost this week because I made Dean hide our scale.  Yes, I have finally admitted that I can't be weighing in daily for now.  Maybe when I'm at goal I can but not now.  It messes with my head too much.  So imagine my surprise when she said I was down 3.4 lbs for a total of 50.2 lbs!! I got a another hug, this time from my Weight Watchers leader Roz!   So I got my 50 lb award and she asked me to say a few words to the group.  I just told how great I feel and how so much of it is in your head.  You have to decide that you will do this and never doubt yourself for a second.  Also how it's all about choices.  Choosing to eat the right things when faced with a decision.  Or by choosing not to eat the wrong things too.  After the meeting I was walking out and a woman stopped me and said what I said really hit home for her.  She said she would think about what I said this week.  I inspired someone!  Wow!  I bought myself a Pandora bead for my necklace.  I now have 5 on there (I also have a bracelet but thought I would just put beads on the necklace, one for every 10 pounds lost).  I ended the day with a late supper out with my husband and a glass of wine.  It was a really, really good day.

What a wonderful day indeed Kim! I am so proud of what you have accomplished on your journey. Not too long ago, you were kind of scared to go to a class at the gym and now you are strutting your stuff there, confident that you CAN do it. It is in our heads isn't it. You are really looking at your stumbling blocks too--putting your scale away must have been hard because I know how much you are drawn by it. But it can have such power over us if we let it. So well done on that too.
You are almost there gurl!
