Back in the 60's again.

My little creeping scale has finally popped back into the 160's (169.8). I am continuing my morning tea and trying to eat meals instead of snacks and am pretty tight band wise.

We spent today cleaning house and fixing stuff in all forms and sizes. David took several trips to our re-rented storage unit. Grace and I cleaned floors, the kitchen, dining room, living room, family room guest room. We Sorted out books in David's and my room and cleaned out my long neglected and unused fireplace. I cut down a tree in the front yard (Ok it was so dead I really just pushed it over).

Tonight I need to do some tiling to touch up our bathroom back-splash and probably begin to paint my laundry room. David is replacing a ceiling fan. I am hoping tomorrow we have a chance to do a bit of work in the yard and then pictures will be taken and our house will officially go on the market on Tuesday. I will post the pics when they are done.

I am tired :) As I sat and typed away on the backlog of work yesterday I was as tired as I used to be all the time before I lost this weight. I was as grouchy and as irritable and weary. The remembrance hit my like a ton of bricks. Today..I am sooo grateful that I do not feel that way all the time anymore. I think my weariness yesterday was due from a lack of sleep and continuing full days of work. (I stayed up too late on a couple and then tossed and turned on another) Today after a full day of running around the house, hauling boxes and doing what they call 'heavy housecleaning' I feel fine. It makes me feel and overwhelming sense of gratitude..yes it does.

I am right there nwith the feeling of weariness. Now I know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel - It will pass when the weight drops. Thank goodness!

Can't wait to see pics of the house - We are currently sprucing our place up a bit and any hints and tips are most welcome!!

I hear you about eating meals, not snacks. I tend to be snacky but am endeavoring to eat more meals. Congrats on the 160's!
