If you're happy and you know it, and you really want to show it...if you're happy and you know it, clap your hands! (Ok, I know a few may be cursing me today if this song lingers in your head for a while.) Mine too. I am happy!
I am feeling very comfortable in my own skin. Not because I lost a ton of weight. (I haven't...yet) Just because. I am looking around and seeing the many, many blessings before me and appreciating all the richness my life has. I am surrounded by wonderful students, many of whom I have had the pleasure of helping (and employing) the last 3-4 years, and now, they are getting ready to graduate and move on to the next phase of their lives --- some will find work, many more will go on to even more education - law school, med school, etc...and I know that I had a tiny little hand in helping to shape who they are, and I am very proud of the little part I shared. Very proud!
I see myself becoming more organized, and completing projects I started, not just leaving them incomplete. I am writing again, making jewelry, reading (love that David Sedaris!) and loving life.
I have woken up from my self induced depression and I am on the road to living whole again. It feels good to be me. I am back. :)

Your services are no longer needed. I've removed your belongings and ask that you leave quietly for the sake of all concerned. I know you (and the supermarket)were hopeful that our previous probationary arrangement would be amenable. However, your recent attempted attack left me with no choice, as you have violated the terms of our agreement.
Please know that I harbor no ill feelings towards you or other members of your family - cake, ice cream, fudge, however you are no longer welcome in my home.
I have taken precautions to shore up my defenses should you try to return. You would see that mango, blueberries and nectarines have replaced you.
I would hope that you would respect my wishes and spend your time elsewhere.

Back from vacay with a new resolve:
I can succeed and have planned my meals for breakfast and lunch for the week, and having planned the types of food I'll have for dinner for the week. Woo hoo. It is doable --- and I know I can handle the 10,000 steps per day. ON vacay, we walked on average, 14,000 steps per day. I think we came close to 20,000 steps at Busch Gardens. Of all days to forget my pedometer, but I did good otherwise. My eating was not in check, but I gave myself that leeway.
Vacay was good except for breaking out in hives the second to last day. Good thing I keep cortisone handy and was able to stop the itch quickly. Still not sure what it was, possibly even heat rash.
Had a good time, but glad to be back home, where I feel more in control of my life, for many reasons...did not get to the pool, but managed quite well otherwise. I did tons of walking!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!
