Waiting for the weekend

Well last night I weighed in at the program and stayed the same. I was bummed, but not to much. I weigh in every morning at home and I know I am losing weight and lots of inches. Yesterday was warm, and I drank a lot. Especially tea I usual try to not drink as much on my weigh in day, until after I weigh in. But, after my walk at lunch, I was so thirsty and drank a lot of water and tea. It was warm and its going to get warmer. (Pool time this weekend). So I am not letting myself get bummed. I have been good and it will show. Currently I am drinking another 32 oz of sugar free (homemade)Iced Tea. Yes it is early, but what the heck I enjoy my tea.

New subject, I used to raise cockatiels and I have a large aviary in my backyard under the orange tree. I had a lot about 60. At my then weight, I just couldnt take care of them so I had to sell them. I kept two, my first bird I bought King, and one that I hatched Alex. My oldest bird, King  was a character and he was feisty. He died Monday and I was so upset. I had him for 16 years. His friend, Alex, wouldn't leave his buddy's body. He just kept sitting by it. It broke my heart. Now, Alex is in this big aviary all by himself and keeps squawking for King. My son said I should get a couple more to keep Alex company. Cockatiels are very social birds and love to be with others. So that is my goal to find Alex a new friend or two. I have plenty of room for them.

Oh... poor Alex... I'm sorry about King. That is sad. Hopefully he'll get a friend and feel better. I can't wait to get a house and get pets for my family. Great job on your drinking... that always helps weight loss!! And thanks so much for your kind words and encouragement on my last post. It really meant a lot to me. ((Hugs))

God Bless...
