What have we learned so far?


I was fat.  I was depressed. I was anxious.  I was sleeping 12-16 hours a day, and I was still exhausted.  I was crabby.  I was drunk.  My brain was foggy.  I was making bad choices.

Then, things started to change.  I got me some knowledge, took some action, and things changed.  Amazing how that happens.

THEN, people started to  notice the changes.  The physical changes were obvious, but a very dear friend recently paid me the best compliment ever.  “you are different.  Not just on the outside, but you just radiate happiness.”  I am different.  I am not perfect, nor perfectly happy, but I am different.  And as Ms. Hall likes to tell her students, different is good.

Finally, people started to ask WHAT I did to evoke change.  Enter:  the blog.

3 week bullet point recap.

  • Soda, diet or otherwise=bad.
  • Intermittent fasting.  Give it a try.  Find a method that works for you.
  • Eat real, whole foods.
  • Express gratitude.  This will make you skinny.  Although, if being a size 2 is your only goal, you might want to rethink that.  For real.  That’s a sucky goal.  I know.
  • Along the gratitude vein, My.  KIDS.    ROCK.  I don’t deserve them.  But my gratitude to and for them is limitless.
  • Be mindful of what goes into your mind.  Cliff notes?  Good stuff in=good stuff out.  Bad stuff in=bad stuff out.
  • I will continue to seek for the Unicorn of a partner.  And one day, it’s totally gonna happen.  It would be really nice if I didn’t keep getting stomped in the process.  But you know, stomping happens.  Whatcha gonna do?  Give up and hide in your bed with wine, red vines, cheetos?   Done that.  Didn’t help.
  • And finally, YOU DO YOU.  I’m gonna keep on keepin on with my own bad self, and you, my darlings, do the same.
