Many people believe that support is something that you give to
someone you feel sorry for or that it means propping up someone who
would fail unless you were there to give him a boost. But that's not
the way I see it. Support is the boost you can give someone who can
help himself but who needs a partner to open a window or push aside a

-- Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy's

I seen this quote and I had to post it, even though it's a little on the long side! Who would've thought that the founder of Wendy's (and probably the reason some of us are trying to lose weight!) would have had such a great insight. I think this quote is all about why we are here everyday, helping each other, pushing each other, and being there for each other.

Sorry it's been a couple days since my last post. I've been fighting this half-cold. Somedays I feel great, and other days, not so much. Today I'm actually not feeling bad. BUT! On a high note, I did make it to the gym both Wednesday and Thursday, despite not feeling real hot (I think it made me feel better actually.). And I plan on also getting to the gym on Saturday, which will make it four times this week.

I've been OP all week, and I haven't used any flexies. I should see a loss this week, hopefully a nice one? But, I do have a Bachelorette Party Saturday night, which will involve some drinking (some, that might be an understatement) right before weigh in, so it might affect it...blah. Oh well. I will see a good loss the next week, if I don't see it this one.

The Bachelorette Party will be a challenge, but I plan on pre-planning for it, and staying OP. I am going to put in a longer gym session on Saturday morning to earn some extra activity points to drink that night, plus I am going to make sure to eat light all day in order to save some points. Plus, I am bringing pre-mixed drinks with diet soda to drink in the limo. And I've googled mixed drinks to pick the lowest point ones to drink, which look like Bloody Mary's, Screwdrivers and a Mojito. So I will be picking from those, or beer while at the bar. So I'm prepared, go me!

Other than that, I don't have much planned for the weekend. Grocery Shopping and relaxing tonight, and then trying to get a bunch of chores done on Saturday since I doubt I will feel like doing them on Sunday, since I like never go out, and haven't really drank since starting weight watchers over a year ago.

Update on Duke! He's doing well, his ear is looking better and better everyday. He is on a high dose of steroids right now, and it's wrecking havoc on his poor little system. He's drinking like two bowls of water a day, and having to go out to the bathroom just as much. The does is cutting back now, and it seems to be getting better. But he's finally acting like his good ol' self again for the most part. Also, since I've had Duke he's had chronic skin problems, dry skin, hot spots, etc. Well they ran some tests last time he was in, and it turns out he has low thyroid problems, so with some meds that can be fixed, and the vet said the chronic skin problems should disappear, so I am so excited for him! I've always felt so bad he is so itchy!

Alright back to work for me, but I hope everyone is staying healthy and OP, will report back with my weigh in on Sunday!
