Google Reader is a spoiled princess that can never be satisfied.  I have come to the conclusion that if I am going to blog, she has to play second fiddle.  If not, then I will never blog regularly again.  I want to blog regularly.  So from now on, no reader until blog is updated.

My weight is the topic of the day.  I am still losing.  People are beginning to notice and comment.  This has always been a deal breaker before.  It made me freak out to know so many people were even aware of my size.  It really freaked me out when it was a male.  I would comfort myself with a cookie or two and start jogging back to the weight I was.  This time it has not had that effect on me (as much).  I am armed with some tools.  The first tool is the healthy card.  My body deserves to be at a healthy weight.  It deserves to be able to get up and down easily and exercise without the fear of a massive coronary.  My kids and husband deserve a healthy me. (I do to!)  I may die tomorrow, there is no way to know how many days I have left on this earth, but I don't want it to be from obesity...or complications of obesity.  I have a gun pointed at my temple.  That gun is diabetes.  It is loaded and ready to shoot me at any time if I don't keep myself healthy.  I could play the genetics card and feel destined for it to happen and then eat accordingly.  I'm choosing not to do that. 

I have now officially lost 32 pounds.  Not sure what my goal weight is...but I'll know it when I get there.  I am not striving for supermodel...just normal, whatever that is.  ( ;

Monday, you are beautiful, fresh and your autumnal glow makes my heart sing.

You are right about that spoiled princess! Have you noticed the more you scroll down Google Reader, the more blogs there are? It is absolutely never ending.

And good for you on choosing health. I can't imagine that it is very easy to do what you're doing. And I admire people who do hard things. So way to go!
