2011: Re-Boot

Just setting goals to get back in shape after a decade of being a size 14-16. I don't expect to return to a size 8, but 10 would be nice... I hate being the big american girl in tokyo. I don't like whining about it, and it hasn't been overly important until now - just ready for a change.

I wrote that one year ago. In 2009, I had a lot of fun, did a lot of travel, but also had a few minor injuries and am 10 pounds heavier now. Want to recommit to the same goals - walk every day, ...
Just setting goals to get back in shape after a decade of being a size 14-16. I don't expect to return to a size 8, but 10 would be nice... I hate being the big american girl in tokyo. I don't like whining about it, and it hasn't been overly important until now - just ready for a change.

I wrote that one year ago. In 2009, I had a lot of fun, did a lot of travel, but also had a few minor injuries and am 10 pounds heavier now. Want to recommit to the same goals - walk every day, work out, mix it up, get fit, lose weight.

Now we are another year gone, and neither my weight nor my goals have changed. 2010 saw my income cut by half, but I am working more again and catching up. Yay!

I like art, movies, music, being creative, japan, travel, language study (third-year student of japanese), dancing, animals, alternative culture, and coffee. My spare time is spent reading, writing, drawing, watching DVDs or TV with the hubby and my cats, surfing the net, taking quizzes, doing tarot, numerology, listening to and collecting music (J-Rock, alt-rock, indie rock, goth, metal, old punk/hardcore, golden oldies, middle eastern/bellydance, and a small mix of jazz, blues, classic country, r&b, trip-hop, industrial, ambient, etc.), going to museums, swimming in the summer, walking my friends' dogs, shopping, eating out, seeing live music, going to movies (comedy, documentary, sci-fi, fantasy, foreign, indie, etc.)

YOU COULD HAVE BEEN KIND AND REMINDED ME THAT THE WORDS ENDING IN ING WERE A TO Z..... IT WAS A SIMPLE MISTAKE ON MY PART AND I HONESTLY THOUGHT IT WAS ANY WORDS ENDING IN ING. TO LOOK AT MY POST IT WAS CLEAR THAT IS WHAT I WAS THINKING. INSTEAD YOU WRITE A NASTY CHASTISING NOTE SAYING, "SAFETYSUE YOU NEED TO LEARN THE ALPHABET AND DON'T USE ALL CAPS! ALSO CHASTISING ME IN CAPS, WHILE TELLING ME NOT TO WRITE IN ALL CAPS.

IN MY YEAR ON SPARKPEOPLE I HAVE NEVER MET SOMEONE WHO SET OUT TO BE MEAN AND SPITEFUL!!

I do hope your day gets better and you are more supportive and positive in your communications with others. Everyone is here for the same reason and I have been nothing but kind and supportive of all I have met. I would never set out deliberately to intimidate, chastise, bully, or say anything to hurt someone's feelings. I also will not let someone else treat me with this kind of disrespect and not try to help them see how their actions effect others. Yes, you really did leave me feeling crushed and called out by the bully in the school yard pointing out my mistake for everyone to see. I only hope in the future you give others the benefit of the doubt considering they simply made a mistake. We all tend to remember people by how they treated us and how they left us feeling. After I read your comment I looked at your choice of an online name and it left me feeling that maybe this wasn't just a bad morning for you...devinerebel...says a lot after your hurtful and mean comments. I will keep you in my prayers and hope that I am wrong and this was a mistake and you really didn't mean to be harsh and mean. My sincere wishes for a positive Journey for you here on Spark.
