A long but good day

So tired, just like me.  Just wanna kiss that tum-tum though.
Mondays are especially long for me.  I leave the house to head off for work by 6:45 a.m., work a full day, go to my Optifast class for two hours and then I usually don't walk in the door until about 9:15 p.m.  Given the fact that I barely got a wink of sleep last night, I was practically dragging my poor bootie in the door tonight. 

I had an interesting class tonight.  I lost 3.5 pounds this week.  I felt pretty good about that.  I'm pretty much losing weight every week, sometimes I lose a lot and sometimes I lose a little.  Point is that I am continuing to lose and seeing that number on my weight loss ticker inching closer and closer towards the end.  When I started out, I needed to lose 257 pounds to get to the target goal set by the clinic.  Now I'm under 90 pounds.  That's a pretty surreal feeling to me, but I am going with it!  I feel pretty fantastic these days and I know it will only continue to get better as the days progress.  We talked about the value of exercise in our class.  It really made me feel good that I've incorporated physical activity into my daily life.  In fact, the clinic is sponsoring two upcoming walking events that I found out about tonight and I'm excited to participate.  They are open to anyone, whether or not they are participating in the program, so maybe I'll see you out there!  Here are details:

ooh Kathy, that sounds like fun! some of my classmates are doing the Turkey Trot 5k on Thanksgiving and they invited our class to do it with them but only a few expressed interest. I want to do it, but I don't know if I should. You up for it? I think I will need you to help me "train" for it hahaha

I think you should totally do it! I'd be up for doing it with you but I'll be in Vegas with my family during Thanksgiving ;-( I can help you get ready for it and maybe we can do another 5K together. We have lots of fun ones in San Diego.
