Day 218/86

Monday, October 08, 2012

So, tonight was super exciting! I got to watch my friend Stephanie just completely kick ass on Jeopardy! tonight. She won $17K and will be back tomorrow night for more. If you got a chance to watch her, you know what I mean. If you didn't, then watch her tomorrow - she just lights up that stage! She called Alex Trebek the Devil! I mean... wow!

My friend posted a fat picture of me on SparkPeople that was taken back in my first year of grad school, when I weighed about 200 lbs. Another friend of mine was telling me tonight that she looked and looked at my picture, but that it didn't look like me. She couldn't tell it was me! I guess instead of fretting all the time about how crappy I look now, I should be thankful that I don't look as crappy as I did back then! Ha!

Today, the scale was not pleasant to me. I'm sitting at 177.5. Yesterday I kept it under 1700, and today I'm doing the same. So hopefully things will be looking - DOWN - for me tomorrow.

Man, I am tired... and the grading is all sorts of piled up. I just don't feel like reading it and grading it... it's so punishing!

    Yea for your Stephanie! Good luck to her tonight!

And definitely. Sometimes it takes a stroll down "memory lane" to appreciate TODAY. Lord, I look @ my "fat pictures" (picture 200+ lbs. on a 4 ft. 10-1/2 in. frame . . . definitely NOT a pretty sight!) and wonder to myself how I even functioned. No going back now to THAT dark place.
