The search planes went out Sunday evening and they saw me sitting on a beach talking to a Volley ball, I waved them off but they came and got me anyways, I am back on the blog, I missed this whole weekend of posting because it was too nice out all weekend to be inside at my Lap top. it started out as any other weekend might have and then I looked at my thermometer which said 60 degrees, I thought to myself wow thats warm for 8:00 am so I opened the door and wow was it gorgeous outside, Saturday ended up being in the 70's and we went to a park near my house, we bought lunch (Subway) and headed on over, we took a walk out on the small pier that shoots out into the center of this small lake and hung out on the end for a while just taking in the day and getting a light sun burn, we fed the geese that were swimming around I spotted a Bass swimming around that had to be more than a foot and a half long, and I saved a turtle that was stuck on some branches, we ended up taking a walk through the woods on a partially paved path, all in all Saturday was a good day that ended up with kicking a soccer ball around the back yard with the kiddos. I did go over calories on Saturday by about 100, the day ended up at 1605 total calories. it was quite a relaxing day if not a little busy early on with some chores.
Then there was Sunday, it was a bit colder and very windy, still nice, we decided to hang around the house and the yard for the day, we ended up kicking the ball around the yard again and just fooling around all day. another nice day, I over all feel great and this weekend showed me some of what I have been missing because of my weight for the past few years. being able to go for walks again without getting winded or having my back scream at me the entire time is something that would have been taken for Granted in the not so distant past, pre me at 500 + pounds. Saturday I remembered just how much I enjoy walking through the woods or just plain old walking around and not having my back or breath as my main concern. the weight that I have dropped so far has made a huge difference in my quality of life and nothing or no one can say different. The world is seen through different eyes when you are 500+ pounds and I know that view all too well, and I am not looking back. I believe that its a feeling that can only be fully understood if the shoes have been on your own feet, even I did not see that there was such a difference until recently. I will put Sundays menu up now it was not a great day but I did come in under calories.

Grand total of 1445 calories for the day, but they were not as spread out as I would have liked so I consider it a not so good day. my weight has not gone lower than Fridays weigh in, in fact I am up a pound, which is odd since I ate ok and got in lots of movement this weekend, I am not worried about it because it usually works itself out by Tuesday of so, as long as I am down on Friday thats all that I worry about, the day to day fluctuations don't get to me any more. Thank You for reading and following along with my little piece of the world. it is appreciated.
