11:00 am - 198.5lbs
Its been a while since I broke the big 200. I was 175 out of high school and cruised on 185 for years. Of course in the 175 days I could almost see my ribs. Hopefully that won't happen before this is all said and done. I will probably switch to liquids instead of water around day 20 or so. Haven't made up my mind yet though.
I was feeling a little sorry for myself last night. Cravings, crankiness, and fatigue. Today I woke up and a water pipe had broke and I feel scandalized about how much it cost me to fix for 20 minutes of work. Then I started packing ....for Florida.
Yes, I know shameless isn't it? I feel like I feel sorry for myself too often. I'm not eating. Others can't eat. They go hungry not by choice. They can't pick up a phone (that they don't have) to fix a leak they would be happy to have if they lived in a nice comfy house to keep them warm. They can't pick up and take a trip to the beach. They can't drive in their car. We are talking about hundreds of millions if not billions of people.
Its hard to face but I'm spoiled rotten. I don't like to admit it b/c I usually measure myself to someone who really is spoiled. Look how much more thankful for things I am than they are. Not the best gauge I know. We can always find someone worse than us.
I have more blessings to be thankful for than I usually acknowledge. I know that a little better today. Hopefully more so tomorrow.
Well no posts for the next few days. See you around day 17 or so.
