Well, for some reason today just seems BIG! For no particular reason – everything just seems big today!
My husband and I still continue on our weight loss pilgrimage and so far, since January 01, 2013, we have lost a total of 26kgs now. Don’t get me wrong, we are both extremely happy and are certainly motivated to keeping it up.
But do you notice that on those days when you haven’t lost a damn thing (and like today seem to have put on 1.2kgs – but who’s counting, eh?) that nearly everything seems larger? Is it just me?
We walked our dogs today and I have to say they aren’t the largest dogs in the world – both are little white maltese crosses with a combined height of about 2 inches (they don’t know that though – they think they are HUGE!). But as I was walking them – they seemed over-weight to me. I really know that they are (they will eat anything and everything) but they seemed bigger today than yesterday!
My husband looks bigger today as well. I don’t know why – he only put on about 0.0002gms but he looks enormous……………today! Even the damn house looks like it has put on weight in the last 24 hours.
I think that, as we head into the third month now of our diet, I am starting to get stronger cravings as well. Yesterday, I needed a piece of bread. A simple thing – but I would have gladly taken someone’s kidney out (even my own of course!) if it meant having a piece of bread, preferably toasted with 5 pounds of butter smeared across it!
But it passes. It’s the internal motivation that keeps us going to succeed – plus friends, family, two little white dogs and blogs on the net that help us all through.
Where ever you are if you are struggling at the moment (with whatever addiction you may have) take some solace in the fact that you aren’t alone. Talk to someone, blog someone or just read the blogs of others – it will help you to keep the strength that we all need.
Now, does anyone know anything about liposuction for dogs……?
