Well, you know me, in spite of my earlier vent art (which honestly helped me to have drawn) I can’t stay down for long… so, just like yesterday, I pushed myself to have a good day! I talked to my mom in law today too, which also helped me feel much better. I’m so looking forward to seeing her.
I did a lot of chores today, and I went on my evening walk. I got some very pretty photos during it:
I made Christopher tacos for dinner. Here’s a picture of them with a new little friend that I’ve wanted to get for a while:

I was very happy when I weighed myself today. I reached 117 lbs!! 🥳
That’s a huge deal to me. I’ve lost 15 pounds since my most recent attempt to lose weight, starting in February (with some interruptions). My hope is I can make it to 100 lbs by December! ✊💦
I don’t feel as though I’ve been denying myself of very much. I think it’s the walks that are making the biggest difference, since they burn between 300 and 500 calories a day.
Anyway that topic aside. We had a happy evening, which cheered me up and makes me feel more hopeful. I’ll take all the happy moments I can get, and treasure them, and nurture an environment that can create such moments. Even if it feels like all my efforts aren’t working, I’m sure they make some small difference that will add up.
No matter what I have to keep trying my best, and I can, so I will. Goodnight, everyone!
