The Non-Magical, Non-Mystery Tour

Bear with me, I'm sort of a goofball, and as you will learn shortly, EXCESSIVELY VERBOSE.

I plan to start by losing around 120 pounds; I'll decide on a final goal once I get down there and see what the landscape is like (it's been a while!)

I lost 30 pounds on Weight Watchers in 2009, but then stress & life intervened and I gained it back, plus a little extra.

So here I am. Uh... hi!

I blog a bit here and there, as I have thoughts. ...

I blog a bit here and there, as I have thoughts. Anything that shows up is likely to be long (VERBOSE!) so if you do want to read it, you might want to grab a cup of coffee.

(I must give credit where credit is due: my page title comes from a blog by Linda Holmes, who is awesome and a better writer than I'll ever hope to be. My avatar is my version of what I would look like if the ever excellent Natalie Dee consented to draw my portrait.)

My Program:
Tracking, using data to make changes.

I continuously need to work on getting enough protein, keeping carbs down, and watch fat and junky food on busy days.

Fitness - burn at least 800 calories a week, some combination of running & walking.

Mostly my plan is to not do anything I would hate to do "forever." So I don't plan to work out 7 days a week or give up any particular kind of food or anything like that.

Personal Information:
I live in The Jerz; bought a house 7/2013! I love my freakin house.

Married; no kids. But probably will think about having some within the next 5 years, so I'd like to get as much as possible weight off before then.

Other Information:
Lifelong dream realized 11/9/2013:

I adopted my very own smooshy little rescue dog!!

DOGGGGG! My life is complete, finally.

I know it's going to make w weird texture on the towel, but I'm making a fairly small design. I will be putting 6 on a page and trimming them close to the actual design, so I'm hoping it will work. if not? I'm out like $15 for the experiment. Not a horrible loss. and if it works? The first batch will pay for itself and enough material for a second set. Here's hoping!!!

Thanks for the support on my blog. Thanks to all the positive feedback it was easier to just move on and have a good day. Ya know, instead of just letting it ride into a two day food bonanza of poor choices. *walks off into sunset sporting big girl panties*

Omg! I hate seamstress horror stories! That sounds awful :( I'm sorry that you had to go through that. It sounds like she was just phoning it in and doing... whatever. :(

I had to pay for the dress in full before it came in, so while I could exchange for the larger size, I can't order a second dress without paying for it. I haven't looked into the return policy, but the dress was pricy enough that I don't want to pay for a second one even knowing I'll return it. It stinks!

I've made some decisions, but instead of flooding your comments, I'll put it all in my next blog!
