At my weigh in this morning I learned that I have stayed steady with my weight. To be completely honest, I am frustrated and struggling to celebrate that I am learning how to maintain. My frustration comes from wanting to shed a few more pounds off of my frame. And I will! I vow to continue my efforts and to move forward for more success.
It has been a stressful week, and research tells us that it is harder to shed weight under stress. My grandmother is near death and my parents flew to northern Georgia to be with her. Grandma is 102 so I am not consumed with sadness for her imminent passing. I actually want to celebrate her life. She was an Italian immigrant in the early part of the last century. She had 3 children and wonderful families (like mine!) ensued.
I am worried about my Dad and his pain at seeing his Mom pass on. I don't think it gets any easier, even when the person is 102 and has lived a good full long life! I will use this time of transition to stay focused and healthy so I can be there for my parents.
So, tonight I am making a stir fry with chicken broth, garlic, (no oil) extra lean ground turkey, summer squash, onion, red pepper, orange pepper, broccoli, green cabbage and tomato. It looks wonderful, smells great and is almost ready to be served up. Sliced pineapple beckons for dessert...YUM!
I hope you are enjoying a healthy Saturday night, whatever that is!
Desire, dedication and discipline...persevere!
