My eldest son took the day off today so he could take me shopping and out for lunch for my belated birthday. We are off to Detroit, Michigan to a flea market and a fishing store. My young son sent me roses which was a delightful surprise. The best news is that in spite of my delicious birthday dinner last night (salmon, snow peas and potato), I am finally down 2 pounds and back to my lowest weight of 218. Hurray! My new clothes fit easily and comfortably and I feel happy. Bob comes back late tonight and we have loads to catch up on plus are invited out on Sunday. By making lists I am slowly accomplishing all the things I need to do without the stress and fuss I usually go through so something good is happening.
