Not Me! Monday.


Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did NOT get up on Saturday, wash my face and throw on my sweats.... with the goal of running into my weight loss center for a quick check in only to NOT find the center preparing for our (and my) stabilization celebration (yes, because we made it to our goals) and was NOT totally in shock at the screams of "CONGRATULATIONS" "WHOA" "WAY TO GO" and the champagne popper thingy's going off when I walked in the door. Not at all! I did NOT then excuse myself to run back home, change and apply makeup quickly, grab the kid, and fly on back to the center to properly NOT thoroughly enjoy the party! I did NOT re-enter the room shouting "WHOA!!!! Where's the PARTY!!!!" like I'd not just been there 20 minutes before and the room did NOT break into full blown laughter at me because I'm just silly that way... I did NOT thoroughly embarrass my kiddo by offering him some fake champagne in a champagne glass, asking him if we should partake in the festivities and "get our party on" then tell him he might need to drive home if I had a little too much. He did NOT just shake his head and wonder if I'd ever grow up. Geez, Mom's.... I'll tell ya. We DID not celebrate each and every weight loss goal, from 15lbs to 178lbs (mine!) with the same jubilation and excitement. We did NOT give each other the best hugs at the end and release balloons into the sky to represent the things we have chosen to let go of along this journey. I did NOT offer the suggestion to my son that he let his bad attitude go with one of the balloons, and he did NOT suggest the same of me.

We did NOT laugh our butts off for the whole day because we are too much alike.

I did NOT have yet another wonderful weekend, even though the husband and I have colds because bad attitudes and feeling crappy are only for when you're at work!

How fun is that? I love that you went back home to put on make up! I like the idea of letting something go with a balloon. And I completely agree that colds and bad attitudes are only for work! I hope you have a great week!

AWESOME. What kind of changes did you make in your eating? I know it is a lifestyle change but it is easier to ask what diet you did. Low Carb? Low Fat? All of the above? Got a copy? You can email or fax? I have an 800 fax line. Tee Hee

That was the coolest celebration ever! Let me know if those bad attitudes actually made it to liftoff!!!

Deb said...

that is so cool. i really think having a support system like that is key to weight loss, or any other goal, for that matter.

i love to embarrass my kids, too! whoo hoo!

hope you and mr. hubs are feeling better!

Thanks for the info. I know that most of mine is emotional eating. When something stressful happens I go right for the food. The other day I went all day without being hungry. I am leaving this weekend to visit my sister for a few weeks. I am going to start changing my eating habits and exercise at the gym in her apartment complex. So hopefully in those three weeks I will be off to a good start.

I am so impressed with what you did. That is amazing. Sometimes my will power is nil. But being away and in an interesting city will be fun and motivational. Art always motivates me.

Thanks again....
Coco
