So the plan is for me to find a new gig, whether through my agency or on my own. And it's looking like the agency is not going to do as well for me as I'll ... Read more
Every day I leave the house, I put on a green and white Winter jacket or the navy blue jacket. This is nothing remarkable, except that I didn't fit into either of them until February or so.
Fit isn't quite the right word. I got into them. ... Read more
I'm having one of those days where nothing is satisfying and I'm antsy.
This is all directly tied to lunar events, so don't mind me. I'm just going to rant about nothing that i... Read more
I heard this song recently on the radio and remembered how much I like it and really pretty much anything from REM.

I've always loved this silly little song, and I'll reproduce the lyrics below because the singer is essentially rapping (in the '70s, no less!) and it can be hard to hear everything h... Read more
Well, the hips don't lie (although I confess as I was watching the video, Shakira sounded a lot like Dolores O'Riordan of The Cranberries and that's just plain weird). Mine are bigger... Read more
Well, it's a picture of me, actually. Front and center in that photo which is my before pic.
I'm also going to add a pic that I took after I hit my first goal.

Today's entry is devoted to my greatest supporter. He's been with me through 11 sizes, 200 lbs. up and down, 3 states lived in, and 7 different career paths, all in the span of close to 20 years.
