...but we had fun...


Did not walk today, unless you count wandering around the Factory Outlet Stores for a while, which I don't. I did take my bike out for a nice 88 mile ride (don't be impressed; we're talking motorcycle, not bicycle) and soaked up a lot of beautiful weather.

And I got this in the mail today:

I lose my replacement wedding band when I first started training for the walk; my hands swell so I took the ring off and put it in my pocket...and evidently when I took my phone out of my pocket the ring went with it, and it was gone.

It was a cheap band meant as a placeholder--my regular ring is way too big now but I don't want to resize it until I've lost all the weight I'm going to--so losing it wasn't a crushing disappointment. More of a "dammit, I'm a moron" thing.

I found this online at a site where everything you buy puts a percentage towards a mammogram for someone who can't afford one. The picture doesn't show it was well as I hoped; it's pink titanium, and inside is inscribed, He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways." ~ Psalm 91:11

I suppose that's better than the BOOBIES! I would have inscribed.

I'm classy that way.

Well that's a really good replacement ring. I'm assuming it's pink, yes?
Ok ... that does it ... I'm not taking my wedding band off during a walk and putting it in my pocket again ... because I'll say more than "damnit you're a moron!" My hands really ... I mean REALLY swell. They look like baseball mitts!
How much weight have you lost?

Roberta said...

ps ... I meant to say "damnit ... I'M a mornon." duhr.

Roberta said...

this is exhausting.

Good to hear that you were moving somewhat on your day off...

Pink titanium???...on my screen it looks like....

purple plastic.

I'll take your word for it.
Guess it's better than loosing the real thing.

I dropped 50 pounds between July and the end of December last year...since then, not a freaking thing. I really thought that all the walking would melt a few pounds of fat...but no. Dangit.

But the classy thing is the PINK! FOR THE BOOBIES! Putter and Diamond are really into pink. They also have a Mommy who takes at least three trys to get out of the house in the morning. Forgot the keys, then the cell phone, then the satchel, but so far not the pants!

Miss Em said...

Of course not because you've been building muscles in all sorts of places that you haven't thought about.
Now get out the tape measurer and start making a chart of your body and then look at what you've done compared to last year.
I think you will be saying YEA.

Compared to early January, when I stopped losing weight, my measurements haven't changed. Kind of sucky, but it is what it is.

Miss Em said...

OJD, I was hope-pin that the measurements had gone down.

Wonder if some strength exercises would help?
It appears that your body has gotten use to the type of exercises you are using. Maybe, it's time to change a few and make the body adjust to the new stuff. The adjustment should [??] start the calorie burn again [hopefully]

I'd like to know which website you bought your ring from. They may have something I'd like to purchase.
