SO, I get my annual well woman appointment each year on my birthday so I can remember I have to do it. Last year I was 258 pounds and this year I am 206 pounds. If mine eyes doth not deceive me THEN I have lost 52 pounds in one year. I have also lost: one husband, one apartment, one printer, one mind, five dates, and three jobs.
If you had told me that the only success I would have found in the year 2013 was with weight loss, then I would have laughed in your face. As it is, I think now I would have cried in your face. Life hurts and extreme weight loss is small solace. Plus, as it turns out, at 206 pounds, I AM STILL A BIG GIRL. Who knew?
With the divorce I am thrust trembling into the awesome world of dating and I cannot seem to find anyone with teeth. Is this a reflection of my own lack of feelings of self-worth? Looks aren't everything but these guys are cheap and mean to boot. I refuse to go to online dating sites but now I think maybe I should. My second favorite sport is pool and the guys I am digging up at the pool hall should probably crawl on their bellies like reptiles back into the shallow end of the gene pool from whence they came. I console myself with the fact that my game is improving because they CAN indeed shoot pool and I am learning tips even as I degrade myself. Just the other night I ran three balls to the eight and did a perfect bank.

Every time I go outside my new apartment I am dive bombed by an angry bird who either doesn't want me to steal his eggs or who thinks my curly mess of hair would make good nesting material. Regardless, I have begun to fight back by flailing my arms around and I actually struck it the other day while its claws were entangled in my Medusa locks.
God has smote me by sending the scale up three pounds this week.
Alternatively, Chinese food, In and Out Burger, McDonald's and driving have smote me. I feel like a bloated little bag of sodium. This too shall pass.
I just measured my waist at 38.5, my hips at 48, so my WTH is .8, low risk. My BMI is 34 so I am Class I obese. I need to be 191 pounds to be overweight so that is the next goal!
Meanwhile, I will keep on Sparking in the free world/

End of radio silence...On March 18th, 2013, after more than ten years, my husband filed for divorce and on March 22nd, 2013, after more than nineteen years, I received my BA in Biology from the University of California at Santa Cruz.
And, after Sparking since January 15th, 2010 I FINALLY lost some D$%@# weight!
THIRTY pounds baby on the ticker and really FIFTY pounds from my highest weight of 271.
I slid down the pole from morbidly obese to just class I obese.
(Cause you gotta have goals...)

SO, SP congratulated me on a two pound weight loss which was really 1.5. I am pleased regardless.
