8 months and 4 days later
Posted December 18, 2013

March 14, 2013 was the first day I set foot into the Weight Watchers Center over on Paseo Padre.  I was horrified at my starting weight and how I looked and felt.  Now 8 months and 4 days later, I have accomplished a deletion of a little over 40 lbs.

I know, I know.  But he's a kitten and the costumes were 75% off...I think he's cute as a bug.

A Farewell to a Good Friend
Posted September 19, 2013

We have lost a very good friend and a wonderful man this week.  John was in my H.O.G. chapter for YEARS and was our Director in 2010.  He was very kind and you could confide in him.

Before and Now...(During)
Posted August 26, 2013

The journey continues...I no longer have to shop in the "Plus Sized" section, and this is the second thing I've been able to get from the Venus catalog.  IT's a version of the top I wore in the last pic I posted here, only in my second favorite color, fuschia, and as a dress.  I love it!

My Table Setting for the Fair
Posted June 16, 2013

Yes, it's Fair Time Again!  I have again entered a table setting; I think this will be my third time.  I never win anything but it's always fun.  This year's theme at the fair is "Water" so this is my water themed fun setting.

Accomplishments
Posted June 3, 2013

When I started 2013, I knew I wanted to make some changes.  I felt trapped in my bloated body, destined to be a Stroller Whale, along with all of the nasty health implications.  It struck me in March, while sitting on the corner of my bed, it was time to get on it when the caster on that corner...well...it broke.

I know I've ranted a few times about Curves here on my little blue corner of Cyberspace...but I do enjoy working out there, and today was my 100th workout.

Really?
Posted April 11, 2013

This is up at the place where I do my swim workshop.  Did they have a problem with people spontaneously stripping down and wandering around buck nekked?

Spring Cleaning
Posted March 5, 2013

Now that I'm back to work, it's nice to be able to do things like have the house cleaned!  Why can't I do it?  Well, for one, I suck at it, and two, I hate it.  It's nice to have it done - I used to have it done before when I was doing well.

Back to Work
Posted February 10, 2013

So I was out with injured hands for the last half of 2012.  Carpal tunnel finally caught up with me - didn't take much more than my keyboard height being about 3-4" too high at my contract job last spring.  Ten days of working like that, and I was in trouble...

Shaking off the Past
Posted January 29, 2013

 

Sometimes you're going along in life and feel that everything is okay, you have your struggles you're working against, and you keep on going.  Then suddenly, something happens where something is gone - and you realize after you let go of it, it was truly weighing you down...
