Belt Caper Irony & Misc. Thoughts

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Before 6 years ago, I had the luxury of never thinking about food and weight gain. I had years of collections of belts - all kinds, styles, etc. A belt diva. During this past 6 years, I gave them all away with other things to charity and figured belts are out and I'd never need them again. Fast forward to this week. I'd bought a few pairs of on-great-sale skinny jeans that were a bit loose in the waist. Not going to buy smaller pants, what did I race to Target for yesterday? Yup, a belt. I should have kept a couple. (smiling)

It's funny that I'd completely forgotten about my 4-year spversary until a friend here reminded me. A couple of months ago, I blogged about it being upcoming, but then I forgot about it. Another irony. When I first found this site, I'm the one who wasn't going to do SP because: 1) I'm not a joiner, 2) I don't agree with their drug ads, 3) I don't want to be bothered with details like tracking, 4) It's another gimmicky way to lose weight, 5) whatever else silly stuff passed through my brain.

The irony is that I've become one of SP's biggest supporters. Not only do I tell others about it routinely and bring them here, but I buy the products and participate as much as possible. These four years have been filled with every possible loss and trauma that I could imagine happening in my life, and SP was the one stable thing that helped me keep focus on health and well-being. Even when I was just doing baby steps, at least I was still headed in the right direction. And, of course, I went through the inevitable times when I wanted to "take a break."

Okay, friends, I appreciate your support (from those in the past as well as present) and wish all of you the best.
