Day 48

Had a lovely day yesterday. My sister and family came down and we had tacos. This is the first family dinner I've had since I started on this journey and wow was it different.
Old way: I would prepare 3 lavish desserts on top of all my other cooking wearing myself out
New way: I made one dessert my husband asked for (scotcheroos super easy), asked my sister to bring one, and planned ice cream sundaes with a small sundae bar for the kids.
Old way: I would have several finger foods laid out for nibbling during the day
New way: I had a veggie tray with ranch
Old way: I would wear myself out with all the cooking and not enjoy myself
New way: I had fun!
I think the wellbutrin is working. Guess what I discovered? My house is FILTHY. It looks like nobody has loved or taken care of it in years, which is true. I didn't know how bad I felt until I started feeling good. And I feel good! I stayed up Friday night til 2 cleaning, then cleaned all day Saturday. I cannot even remember the last time I actually worked that hard at anything. I can't remember the last time I actually cared about anything.
So all in all, it's been a great weekend. My nephews are here for the week and everyone is having a wonderful time. We have plenty of food from yesterday, so today we're having leftover tacos for dinner. Kind of like a little vacation for me.
My sister took some pictures yesterday. And one of them was of us together, and my face didn't look as round as it used to be. Didn't walk but I did so much work around the house that took its place. I was not going to walk around when everyone was shooting off rockets.
My sister has lost a lot of weight in the last year and looks wonderful. The best part of that, is the passing down of clothes! She brought 2 trash bags full for me. I can't wear it all, sadly. Not yet. But I will. I am finding myself so impatient, I want this weight gone NOW! Today I get to go through all them and try them on, to see what I can wear and what I can't.
Make wise choices friends.
