Measure Me Monday

This week: Nothing gained. Nothing lost.

At around 1:20 pm today, I loaded the kids into the van and was going to take a trip to Sonic. This was not emotional eating. This was just lazy, convenient, I just cleaned my kitchen and don't want to get anything out eating. Everyone was in their seat, and I climbed into the vehicle and buckled my seat belt.

Then I heard a text message alert.

"Measure Me Monday blog...where is it?" was the message.

I just laughed.

"Umm...darn you pesky friend! :o)" I replied to her.

"I'm just trying to encourage you. I want you to win."

I felt tears begin to fill my eyes. I couldn't believe that someone thought about me and cared enough to send me a text like that. And to top it all off, that it came to me right as I was about to order a Chicken Club Toaster, Large Cheese Fries, and a Rt. 44 Coke at Sonic.

Guess what, Kim. I didn't order it. I didn't get anything. I bought two small slushes for the kids since I already had them in the van and promised it to them.

Thank you. You have no idea how much that simple text message meant to me.

Chrissy-First of all great job on not gaining any weight this week. Kuddos! I am glad that I could help?! It is funny how things just happen like that. Since I have come back to the blogging world I am going to post my Weigh in Wednesday. I totally know what a struggle it is to lose weight, and we all need encouragement from time to time. You are a great neighbor and a wonderful friend, keep up the great work! By the way what do you win?
