Being lazy on the weekend...

I've lost two kilos this week and I honestly don't know how I do it. I do eat three times a day. Getting on the bathroom scale is a pleasant surprise each time but I now weigh what I weighed when I was a teenager. As a matter of fact, I only have a very vague memory of being this weight. 

I'm not complaining, don't get me wrong. I like being skinny again. I have to go into my closet and get out all the clothes that are too big and put them into a recycle bag. It will be a real pleasure to do that after just having done this last year. My closet isn't very big so I can use all the space I can get.

It's because I've gotten off all that evil medication that I've regained my figure. They are what made me gain weight in the first place. I never was a fat woman until I started taking them. All that medication sure messed up my life.

It's an overcast day outside and rain has been predicted but I don't mind. It gives me the opportunity to wear some decent clothes for a change. The heat wave is over and done with and there's no other one in the forecast. It's now possible to take Tyke for a good long walk and not worry about him burning his paws on the hot sidewalk. 

I've got a different route that I take him in the evening. We started taking it when it was so hot and I had to find a way to walk in the shade. It is a real treat to him to go this way because it's still a novelty and he hasn't grown tired of it yet. We dawdle a lot and take twice the time it should take us. I do try to make his life interesting. 

Having worked at my volunteer job, and now being idle all day, sure is tough. I like being busy so much better. I have been wearing my sneakers instead of my nicer shoes and my feet like me ever so much more. I think I'll keep wearing them for a while. But I don't enjoy passing the time without enough to do now that I've got more energy and cheer. 

The good thing is that it's time to take Tyke for a walk. I'm sure we'll both enjoy that. It doesn't look like it's going to rain yet so we're safe for now. There's a blustery wind and my hair will get blown all over the place but it's a good hairdo and falls back into place easily. 

I hope you all have a terrific weekend.

Those medications do wreak havoc on the body. I'm happy for you that your body is back to a point that makes you feel better.

Leo loves a change of venue for his walks, too.

Yes, I understand.

The real you is back and aren't you delighted. I hear confidence and strength in your words.

I am so happy for you.

Glad to know that life is much better for you! Likewise glad to know that you and Tyke keep having these wonderful adventures. So happy, also, that you have changed your shape (so to speak).

I hope life continues to go so very well.
