Monday, July 20, 2009      3 comments

I registered for college today, 2 classes. When I got there and got in line, I felt like I was finally where I was supposed to be, what I should have done years ago. When I came here to go to school I had no idea what I wanted to do, mainly I ... Read more

My son and I went to see Harry Potter today. This blog is not about that movie, it is about the movie goers. When we were standing outside waiting for the theater to open I noticed that every other adult woman there was over weight, there were... Read more
The reality of photographs, ugh!
Sunday, July 12, 2009      1 comments

I finally got the nerve to post photos of myself on my Sparkpage. The problem with pictures is I have to face reality of what I actually look like. A mirror is different, I can mentally edit what I see in the mirror and hide the truth from mys... Read more

Wow, what a great shopping trip, and how much more fun it is to shop now than it was 30 pounds ago! I used to dread shopping, nothing that looked cute was in my size, or if it was, it didn't look cute in my size. It was totally depressing. ... Read more

Walking on a summer morning
Wednesday, July 08, 2009      2 comments

One of my favorite things is getting up very early on a summer morning to go walking. It is so peaceful and quiet, all you can hear are the birds in the trees waking up. Only a few motivated souls are out at 5:30 in the morning, but for the mo... Read more

I have been working toward the 140's for so long. That's where I actually get a "normal" BMI number. I am around 154 or 155 or 156 depending. I seem to be stuck here but I'm not sure why. It is summer and I am out of school, I have been doin... Read more

Yesterday it was Ding Dongs, today, Chinese food. It was my husbands idea. I didn't do too badly over all. Whenever we go eat Chinese food my son and I will share something. Today it was Mongolian Beef, the worst thing about that is the sodi... Read more

Okay, I'll confess, I just ate 2 Hostess Ding Dongs. The poor little innocent things, they weren't even really mine. I bought them for my son to take on his Six Flags trip, but he only took 2 and left the rest in my care. I know he believes h... Read more

Wednesday, June 17, 2009      3 comments

I have been craving a hot fudge sundae for days. Tonight I got one at Dairy Queen. Our church youth group has a "DQ run" once a month. Normally I don't go but since school is out I decided this would be a good time. I have been very careful ... Read more

To start at the beginning, let me explain my situation. I work as a librarian at a public school. Technically I am an aide although I do all the stuff a librarian would do. I do all the clerical work and ordering, I write lesson plans and tea... Read more

This is the first day of summer vacation. I have been concerned about how I would do with my lack of routine during the summer. I had my food intake down to a science while school was going on, I could only eat what I took with me and I had tra... Read more
