Spring 2010


the obligatory "then and now" pics


I've been told I don't look like my pics.
In real life. To my face.
I'm not sure if that was a compliment.
Or not!

I don't know what I weighed before, because I never weighed! Too shy.
I have been losing about 5 pounds a month avg. for 12 months now.
About 60 to 65 pounds total, so far. A work in progress.
For (what will be) a total of 70 - 75 pound altogether.

I just got moved into a new little apartment!
It has a 2nd bedroom, which converted nicely into a mini-gym.
Plenty of room for the treadmill, bike, and weight bench.
It's a very good thing!

49 years old. I'm ok with that.
I am *only* 5'2" but come on - I can't help that!
For crying out loud.

I used to read A Course In Miracles. 
But I became afraid of experiencing the Love that I had only read about until now.
And started to project the most fearful ego things in the world.
Just now starting to understand it on a deeper level.
So now ....

So now I understand that forgiveness IS the key!
What I once resisted, I now "actively" accept.
I once asked (a quote from ACIM) "Would you rather be right, or happy?"
Now, I would rather be happy!
And Love for everyone! STAT!
And please be happy!

  18. that looks like a whole lot MORE than 65 lbs! Anne .. you put a smile on my face EVERY day. Love what you wrote about forgiveness. :) thanks. Amy

  19. It DOES look like more than 65 pounds.
    I never knew my starting weight because I was too fat to measure,
    and I didn't want to know.
    It was probably in the 220's.
    I've lost 75 - 80 pounds for sure.
    Thanks for your concern and comments!


I would love to hear from you!
