Sandy's Health Odyssey

Hi! My name is Sandy. I own a ballroom and social dance studio in Bloomington, IN. I'm married to a wonderful man and fellow Sparkie, Scottly, and I've got two neurotic cats. I am so excited and hopeful to reach and maintain a healthy weight; something I have never had in my entire adult life.

I read your comment on the "most difficult" thread, then noticed your tracker. Your progress is amazing! You are an inspiration to me, and I'm sure to many others. Try to focus on how far you come, and I'm sure you'll meet your goals.

Keep it up

Maha,

Thanks for your encouragement! I sometimes forget to stop and really reflect on how far I've already come in my quest to get a healthy weight.

You're right; Bloomington is a GREAT place to live! I love the shops, the farmer's market, but especially the beautiful landscapes and national parks in the area.

It's funny that you mention one of the central problems with my field, and unfortunately, it's a hard thing to explain. Basically, "synthesizing" ethnographic data can be ethically problematic when we try to prescribe our interpretations on the "other."

What I'd eventually like to do is be a professor, research, publish ethnographic studies, and most of all teach, which is what I've always wanted to do. We'll see how that goes, I guess, when I try to enter the ultra-competitive job market. I guess I can always fall back on teaching high school.

Anyway, thanks for your words of encouragement!

Sandy -- You have come SOOOOOOO far -- major congrats 56 lbs. G*O*N*E* forever! Do it one more time and you'll basically be at goal! YAY YOU! and Scott as well. Your dear hubby is also doing well!

You certainly live in IN's *mecca.* Bloomington rocks and IU is good! I googled your area of study and found something humorous on Wikipedia: "Cultural & social anthropologists today place such a high value on actually doing ethnographic research that ethnology—the comparative synthesis of ethnographic information—is rarely the foundation for a career." So what do you want to do when you grow up -- heh heh?

Great to *see* you on the Gratitudes Topic. Hope to see you there daily!

Peace,
Maha
