Thank goodness I was able to eat more normally this week.  Grilled chicken, oatmeal, bananas,  even a tuna fish sandwich.  Woo Hoo!  Food never tasted better.  When I weighed in on Saturday, I was up 2.6 pounds.    I took it, with a smile on my face.    Health matters!


A woman cannot live on a can of Turkey Noodle soup and two yogurts a day.  Ya just can’t.  I slept so much, but such restless pained sleep.   My energy level was low, too low to exercise in any way at all.   And even though I was drinking lots of water mixed with iced tea — I’m sure I was dehydrated and nutrient deprived in more ways than I will ever know.  So bottom line, Health is Important…and it apparently weighs 2.6 pounds.  OK.  Accepted!  Gladly!

Closer to normal, two weeks after my accident.  I’m not sure how long it will take until it’s long forgotten and well behind me — but I’m grateful, G-R-A-T-E-F-U-L for how good I’m feeling.  Thank you Lord for watching over me these past two weeks.  Gratitude is my middle name.

Ciao for now…..Diane


About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
