It's Not All Bad

Looking on the bright side of things, I've now lost about 26 pounds, plus about 2 inches off my waist. At the same time, I've added an inch or two across my chest and shoulders. My clothes are starting to fit a little funny, but of the problems I can have, that's not a bad one.

I also put together my goal list. I find it's helpful for me to keep focus if I list the things I want to accomplish over the short and long term. For example, long term I want to finish my Pilot's License, and write a book (among other things). Daily, I intend to drink more water, exercise, and get enough sleep.

As silly as it sounds, years ago (the last time I was single) I took a dry erase marker and wrote on the bottom of my bathroom mirror: "What have you done today to further the accomplishment of your goals?" I'd like to be able to answer that question with at least one thing each day.

Well, now I'm extremely jealous. Why is it that men can lose weight so much easier than women? I've dieted off and on my whole adult life. I am AGAIN on a diet! I've lost 9.5 lbs!! Whoopie! Anyway, if I could just get that whole exercise thing down I'd probably do better! I hate to sweat.LOL!!
Well you sound like your doing really good. You're going to have to fight the women off with a stick ;-)
Ok, on with your goal list. I just want to put my comments in about the whole "writing a book" goal. DO IT!!! The sooner the better as far as I'm concerned. Your idea sounds wonderful and I would love to read the whole thing some day.

I have always considered myself very fortunate in having a good frame. Things are certainly a lot easier if you have the right raw materials to work with.

I'll definitely keep you posted on the book.
