Surrounded by Crows


Friday, February 07, 2014



It's been disastrous for me, weight-wise. This time last year I was at 205. Now I'm at 235. This time last year, I had lost over 100 pounds and was hoping to get below 200 for the first time in many, many years. So what happened?

I seem to be in thar movie The Wiz.



Now, I'm surrounded by the crows who are mocking me, saying I can't win, I'll end up gaining all my weight back.



And they want me to sing their anthem.

But I can't let them win, and I won't, with the help of all of you.



It's time to get back on the yellow brick road!



And make THIS my theme song!

And with your help, I can make this a brand new day.



And be able to celebrate like this:

So how about it? Will you all be on the yellow brick road with me?



It won't be easy, but we can lick this thing.

And together, we can make it to the Emerald City!

    I'm just around the bend there, dodging those trees throwing apples. I'm ignoring the fudge cake throwing trees and going to get the apples for a quick snack!

    Right there with ya my friend. I've gained a few pounds over the last couple of months myself and that"s quite enough, so it's time to get back on that yellow brick road - back to eating more fruits and veggies, watching the fats, logging the foods, counting the calories and getting in the exercise. Let's head for that celebration in the Emerald City.

Last year was a rough one for me, too--I tried so hard but still gained 20 pounds. emoticon But this will be OUR year! Because we are not alone and we are strong and do NOT GIVE UP.
