I need to remember this more often.





Where I want to be and how to get there.





This reminds me of what I am trying to do besides lose weight.

My Journey - April 3, 2008

Still here after seven years. It was time to revamp my profile as it kept getting "lost in the sauce" for unknown reasons. Weight loss is a scary process. Losing a limb or two to diabetes is even harder to contemplate. Choose your hard.

What many soon realize, it's not about weight loss (surprise!). It's about what is preventing us from embracing success. Ultimately this is a journey of discovery, an inward discovery of the person that we are, and the one that we hope we will ...
Still here after seven years. It was time to revamp my profile as it kept getting "lost in the sauce" for unknown reasons. Weight loss is a scary process. Losing a limb or two to diabetes is even harder to contemplate. Choose your hard.

What many soon realize, it's not about weight loss (surprise!). It's about what is preventing us from embracing success. Ultimately this is a journey of discovery, an inward discovery of the person that we are, and the one that we hope we will become. It's not a linear progression by any stretch of the imagination. It comes with bumps, weight loss, "plateaus", frustration. We did not get to the weight we are in one weekend of indiscretions, nor will we lose it overnight. It's a long tedious process. But I do believe when we explore those dark corners of our soul and cast a nourishing light there, the demons will scatter, and we will have a clearer understanding of ourselves, and what we really hope to get out of life.

In any endeavor, to be credible, you have to be fit, not only for yourself, but to create a successful business. That's our next goal. One gets fit for oneself, not for any significant other, or for one's children. Once we realize that, we have taken the first significant step.

It's never too late to take that first step forward. Meet you at the Maintenance Table. No rush to get there. It never closes.

Thanks for the Smari link. I'm hoping that when I'm in Lynchburg, about an hour's drive away, I can find the 24 oz size at the Fresh Market there. It is SO thick that I have to mix in fruit, but that's OK. I eat lots of fruit, especially red grapes anyway.

I live in an area where the right to own a gun is more important than the right to go about one's life in safety. In fact when the legislature passed a law limiting gun purchases to ONE per MONTH, the outcry was so great that the law was revoked. We not only have the right to own A gun, but maintain our own private arsenals as well. Multiple purchases also supply the gangs on the entire east coast.
By now it's an economic thing like tobacco. We grow tobacco so anti-smoking laws will hurt our economy. So the right to smoke is more important than my right to breathe.
However, even here smoking has finally been prohibited indoors. So maybe there is hope for the future. There's something different when the victim is someone you know and these reporters were well known to the local audience. Seeing a "friend" shot dead on TV brings the reality home.

I agree, water is much easier in the summer.. I have noticed that i simply feel better in general. Which is the idea, right? Digestion is more agreeable, but mostly I have less brain fog. I have noticed lately that my memory has perked up and I think more clearly. And, have mercy, I need all the help I can get in that department!
