Running late again today....sorry!


Yesterday turned out to be a real day or faith plus a little tenacity. Turns out that having a solid long-term relationship with a banker still does mean something in this dreaded economy. Got some decent news that my credit score jumped up a little close to 700, so my interest rates were all able to get ratcheted down and I was able to with my banker's help, engineer a solution to my current cash flow crunch....big relief for me on that front yesterday. Not just the money, but just faith overall, that who I am, how I work, my own integrity...all of that is real and meaningful.

Still feeling fluish, but a little better. My wife and I are both anxious to watch the tv news story about me and my weight, my start and progress so far... that will be on tonight at 6pm, local cbs station here in Madison, but also will be on their website for the whole damn world to see at www.channel3000.com

It's airing at 6pm cst, and should be on their website by then too. Obviously I'm nervous and scared, but I'm more committed to this healthy living plan than I am afraid of what people think...atleast enough to go through with it. My hope is that by allowing all of this to happen, I will let go of alot of the shame I've been carrying with me for so long and that it will help me to continue on this path to freedom.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday! emoticon

    I have been looking forward to this program on the news. You are an inspiration to us all! I weigh myself everyday because then one day up or down means nothing. It is the long term that counts and if I weigh only once a week or once a month I put too much pressure on myself to see the scale go down. There are many reasons it doesn't and most have nothing to do with what I have or haven't done. It is just the way the body works. Also weighing myself in the morning reminds me that I have a goal. It is a streak that keeps me on track. I am the kind that is forgetful and eats something I shouldn't before I realize it. Mindless eating. Have fun with the people on Channel 3, they are all great folks! emoticon
