The Turtle Plods Along

I feel a little like that turtle in the famous race with the rabbit–just plodding along steadily, while the rabbit runs circles around me.  :)  7 weeks on BistroMD and I am down a shade under 20 pounds (insert a resounding yeehaw here) which is good when you consider that I haven’t felt deprived even once.  And I’m up to 15 minutes at a time on my treadclimber, too. 

Bernice is waiting somewhat impatiently for her walk–trust me, she doesn’t plod.  She’s one busy little Yorkie, and she’d fly if she could.  When she was a pup, she could run so fast that her legs were quite literally a blur.  She liked to catch Sadie by the tail and hold on, and their running games were a hoot.  They’d go streaking by with Sadie in the lead and Bernice in hot pursuit, then they’d shoot by again like a pair of furry bullets, this time with their positions reversed.  How I treasure those happy memories.  And how precious, my friends, is the Right Now.

Beautiful autumn sunshine today–favorite kind of day in my favorite season.

Color me in shades of Grateful.
