Good day, everyone!
Hello.... helloo.... is this thing on?
Thanks to every one who reads here!
It's been a crazy year and half, eh?
This time last year, I was down sooo low.
Very few people actually knew it,
or knew how down I was.
But even then, I never deviated (much) from my weight-loss.
And now I am (still) within 15 pounds or so
of my long-term goal.
Old bodies take a while to adjust, eh?
I always thought it would be more than a year.
Probably more like 2 years.
To lose all the weight I needed to lose.
Indeed it was, and will be!
And I will tell ya this.
It sure as hecka won't be 3 years!
And I won't be going back to ObeseCity anytime soon.
People now are calling me "The Nurse Who Used To Be Heavy -
With Blond Hair!" I thinks that's a misplaced modifier of sorts.
Or not! I'll take it!
I feel like I am finally getting done
with this phase of my life.
And most of the secondary aspects, and fun little twists and turns.
And the drama. May the drama rest in peace.
Oh drama - we barely knew ye!
Well, actually, I think we were pretty well acquainted!
So now it's time for the wrap - up.
Not of the Blog. That stays.
I want to be done with the struggle and the wiggle!
And patiently and gently move to the next phase.
Even "lovingly." With caring, and care.
Today being 19 November, 2011...
My LoCarb 2 year anniversary is mid March... so...
That's about 120 days ...or
4 months ... or
17 weeks ... or
almost 2,000 waking hours
or to look at it another way
400 meal choices
120 brisk, daily walks
100 work-outs (one day off a week)
1,000 glasses of water
so I have a few hundred more chances,
or true opportunities to chose to do the right thing!
And to make every day count!
It's not *just* about the numbers on the scale.
Or the number of jaws that drop, or heads that turn...
It's about being for Fit, and Healthy, and Sane.
Remember when I had "The Most Boring Summer Ever?"
Well, at least food-wise, it was!
Back to Basics. Again and again and again...
