Hope everyone had a great Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chanukah, Winter Solstice, or whatever else people celebrate at this time of the year. We spent Christmas in England this year with James's family and had a wonderful time.

Have been trying to decide whether to continue blogging. The main purpose for starting this blog was to give me incentive to lose some weight. I thought a public forum would help to keep me motivated and on track. That certainly hasn't worked, though I have met lots of wonderful people in the process. I do think it is nice to be able to check in with others who are on the same path I'm on from time to time so maybe I'll limp along a little longer and see how things turn out.

Well, we're at the end of another year. Wow!!! How did that happen??? Can't believe how fast it went. Gosh!!! When I was a kid time dragged, now it flies.

Many thanks to all my faithful readers ... all 2 of you ... ;P and a very Happy 2009!!!

View from my Elliptical Trainer

I can't believe that the last time I blogged was in October. Where has the time flown? Life has been very good, but I think I've lost the plot weight loss wise. I haven't gained or loss any weight really ... I'm just where I always am - STUCK.

I really think there is something wrong with my body in spite of the fact that my blood work shows nothing, because since January 2005 I have been on a mission to lose weight with 0 to little success. No matter how much effort I've put in, the results I get fall so short that I eventually lose momentum. I'm not ready to accept that I'll be obese for the rest of my life but ... I'm short on hope right now.

I was happy to discover another wonderful weight loss buddy Tracy and found this interesting fill-in exercise on her blog, so I though what the heck.
  1. I give myself permission to fail.
  2. Buying and decorating our Christmas tree is one thing I really looking forward to right now.
  3. If I could change one thing about someone I love I'd give my third sister the courage to be introspect.
  4. I spent the day reading today.
  5. Tomorrow I plan to exercise, write and start a new project that I've been planning for a while.
  6. This week is going to be a lot of fun because I'm on vacation from college and can spend all my time working in my studio.
  7. I feel fortunate.
  8. Spending time alone with my honey doting on me is one of my favourite things.
  9. I want to lose weight.
  10. One of my best memories is driving from New York to Montreal with my honey when we were just good friends.
