I haven't blogged in a long, long time! Lots have happened. I lost my job on December 31, 2010. I really hated leaving that job because I loved it. I was the Director of a computer center and helped people look for work, apply to college, helped kids with reports, etc...lots of different things. The company closed all of its centers because they couldn't afford us any more. We didn't make money for the company--we were basically a non-profit within a profit company. They got huge tax savings by having us, but I guess it wasn't enough.
I was going along okay with my diet, but then got depressed, and I know you all know how that goes. I ate my way up from 275 to 310! Yikes. Then I started having major problems with my knee. I could barely walk for over 2 1/2 months. I have arthritis in it as well as gout. I also have gout in my right foot and Fibro myalgia all over.
But, about 5 1/2 weeks ago, something "clicked" and I knew this weight just HAS to come off. So I went back to my favorite way of dieting: Low calorie (1200-1500 a day), and low fat and I've lost 15lbs. So now I'm feeling better and my knee isn't as bad as it was.
I haven't found work. It is very, very difficult. I totally blame the idiots in Washington. They have completely ruined our economy and now they are the ones that are going to fix it? LOL That's like letting the fox fix the fence on the chicken coop.
When are they going to chip in and help by taking huge salary and benefits cuts? How about it Obama--eat some peas--and serve them up to Congress!
