I watched the Fighter last night. Pretty damn good movie, and Christian Bale is unequaled in his dedication to playing a role. He was the most convincing crackhead ever.
Part of keeping myself moving forward, is surrounding myself with positive thoughts. There are certain movies that really bring this out in me, the latest Rocky being one of them (that speech he gives to his son is incredible about life hitting back and winning isnt determined by how hard you hit but by how hard you can get hit and keep going).
I saw some political nastiness online today and I got real aggravated and posted a status update. A few minutes later, I realized, politics is such a negative quagmire, and it has a strong effect on my emotions, not always for the better. There isn’t really room for that right now. To keep in a positive headspace you have to steer away from what you know to be negative, so I took it down, and I’m resolving to remove those feeds which get me riled up the most. Let the world do what it will but this time, I have to be about me and getting ME where I need to BE.
Progress : definitely feeling the weight loss. Places on my legs where the lymphedema swells really bad (and it feels really tight) are diminshed and very soft. I’ll weigh here in a few days, would not be surprised to be down 20 lbs since last visit.
