No, I'm not talking about Glee.
I just wanted all my friends to know I probably won't be on SP anymore. I've got too many things going on in life to focus on this now.
For now I'm not worried about losing weight, but maintaining it and a healthy lifestyle. I've made eating well and being active part of my life. I'm a big woman, but I'm a healthy woman and that's good enough for me.
Right now I'm focused on my writing. As you probably recall I was writing my first book. Well, it's published!
My second one comes out next month, and I'm working on my third. Exciting times!
I'm not taking my profile down, so you can still PM me, if you like. And if you want to continue to follow my adventures, I'll be blogging here: http://sheamacleod.wordpress.com
Thanks everyone for all your support over the past couple of years. You're all amazing! Good luck to each and every one of you. You deserve the very best.

It baffles me no end that people feel the need to comment on the physical appearance of others in a negative way. Sometimes in a downright rude way.
Haven't they heard of the old addage: If you haven't got anything nice to say, shut your trap?
Honestly, do they ever stop for a second to THINK about how they would feel if someone made a rude comment about them? Or to consider that perhaps that person might have a REASON for whatever it is?
Again, obviously not.
Today on the bus a woman made oinking noises at me. Seriously. A grown adult woman. She obviously thought she was incredibly clever.
I wasn't offended. I was too gob smacked to do anything but stare in utter surprise. I expect such things from children or teenagers, but adults? I mean, it's so ridiculously stupid.
Grunting like a pig. That's the BEST you can do?
The interesting thing is that even a year ago, I would have been upset by this. Devastated, depressed and probably buried head first in a bucket of Ben and Jerry's.
Now I feel irritated, bemused, and somewhat amused in a "lady you're a moron" kind of way. Because seriously, that's what she is. A rude, unthinking moron.
And I'm pretty sure she got the memo, because I gave her nothing but A Look. And baby, that sobered her up FAST.
First, never ever assume you know why a person looks they way they look. Whether it's fat, skinny, tattooed, bald, multiply pierced, covered in acne, or wearing pajamas at the grocery store.
Second, never let the morons make you feel less. It's not about you. It's about them. If they were secure in themselves and had one iota of sense, they'd never feel the need to comment about YOU.
You know who you are. Never let anyone tell you different.

This weekend was not so good. It's not that I ate a lot, but that I ate less than the best. I had a sweet attack and I'm not sure why.
I'm under a lot of stress and I haven't been sleeping well, so maybe that's it?
What I did to is refuse to beat myself up over it and today I'm back on track with really healthy eating.
Fruits, veggies, yogurts, lean meats, eggs and whole grains! It all tastes so lovely and fresh! I love this time of year when so many fresh foods are available. Nom! Nom!

Well, I hope it's sunny where you are! It's certainly sunny in London, though windy and a little on the chilly side.
Just had another four day weekend what with the Royal Wedding on Friday and a Bank Holiday on Monday. It was great. I spent the entire weekend writing, which was fantastic! I enjoyed every minute.
I also ate less. A lot less. Amazing how immersing oneself in something one loves prevents one from indulging too much.

I know it's late, but Happy Easter to you all!
I just realized I haven't posted anything since December. Things have been pretty crazy the last few months and I've really done nothing but maintain my weight.
Which is a good thing, I suppose. At least I'm not GAINING anymore.
But between the long hours at work and getting my first book ready to publish, I honestly haven't had the time or energy to focus on much more than that. It probably isn't going to change any time soon, either. My first novel will be going live the end of June and in the meantime I'm working on three (yes THREE) other novels. My job ends 1 July, so I'm still working full time while trying to find a new job.
Right now balance is so far out the window it's kind of ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, I'm loving every minute of this craziness that is my life right now. Well, except for the stress of having to find a new job, of course. lol
So for now I'm not worrying about my weight or obsessing over what I eat or how much I exercise. I'm just working on getting done what needs getting done and maintaining in the meantime.
I'm kind of ok with that. Do I want to be a bit thinner? Yes. Yes, I do. Not a lot, just a little. But am I terribly unhappy with the way I am? No not really.
And that's a battle won in an of itself.
