Please let me down, Mr. Belayer. Seriously! By the way, shoes? Make such a difference! I never made it that high with sneakers.





Why wouldn't I wear a real bathing suit? I do look forward to fitting into a smaller one, though. :)

My Destination? Progress.

One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" was his response.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
Lewis Carroll

For years, I've had a vague feeling that there was something better to be done. I'm an active girl; I love to travel, and meet new people. The world is exciting, and full of possibilities, and I like to meet ...

For years, I've had a vague feeling that there was something better to be done. I'm an active girl; I love to travel, and meet new people. The world is exciting, and full of possibilities, and I like to meet challenges. So why not face the challenge of becoming healthier?

For so long, I've idly sat back while I've sabotaged my own life and health. Perhaps sabotage is the wrong word, as I don't actively try to make myself more obese. It is something that happens as I consistently use food in inappropriate ways: I'm angry, I'll have something to eat. My life feels out of control, but by goodness, I can eat. I am sad; where's my hot cocoa?

But things are clearing up. Instead of an "It doesn't matter" attitude, I know exactly which road I want to take. I want to take the road that leads to :climbing rock walls-- all the way to the top; doing 20 boy pushups with good form; doing a sprint triathlon. The path I'm on currently is leading me to things I don't enjoy: a man telling me I should have bought two seats on a plane ride; being winded after walking up a flight of stairs; having guys I like tell me they aren't interested because I am overweight.

So yes. I do know where I want to go, so the path I choose matters.

Thanx for the comment! You are so funny! When I was reading the links I posted I was totally try to distinguish between my jiggly and hard fat too. I hope the jiggly fat does mean that I'm closer to losing it! Hope you had a great weekend!
