My my my...it's been a long long time since I've last posted on this site. Heck, I didn't even know it was still here to be honest. I've been feeling like blogging again for a while now but just kind of put it off thinking, what should I say...what should I talk about...who will I say it too? And I finally came to the conclusion that 1. It does a body good. 2. Relaying my thoughts and actions never hurt. 3. I'm good company, so why not talk to myself. :)
Changes since the last blog post... dog is now 2 years old, we moved into our church, we have cable internet (seriously so much better than dialup) and we have a grandson now. Hows that for change?
So yeah.. I'm back.

A little bit of this, a little bit of that, all reportable. Let's see, where to start. My computer crashed. Our new puppy chewed up the cord to the laptop. Between the two, getting online at work was the only option and I didn't stay on long. We started walking at the YMCA again. I've posted in the past how I hate walking the track at our YMCA because I'm worried someone will take a 'fat' picture of me and post it on the internet. Well, now I'm kind of thinking, who cares. I'm at the Y to work out and if that's what happens, well I'm still working out. So there. I started walking a mile in 30 minutes and I'm now down to a 24 minute mile. Carl is doing great walking two miles in 33 minutes (he's so fast). I've started tracking my food again and surprisingly between both things, the weight has started to drop again. Imagine that. Let's see... other than that, nothing new has really been happening here. Mostly it's been the lack of computer use since we were without. I got my drivers license renewed (I'm going to take a picture of my current and past one just for fun when it arrives) although it was expired for the last three months. Eh. Our church is moving to it's permanent home this Sunday (exciting) and I just feel mooey (I don't know how to spell it in spanish.. lol) blessed. PS... I do realize I need to update that picture over to the right.

I know one of the biggest and simplest reasons the weightloss has stopped for me is the writing has stopped. From blogging to tracking, I let so much go. There truly is power in the words. Back to business with that.
So... first post for this week shall be the menu.
Sunday: Sloppy Turkey in a biscuit
Monday: Zingy Chicken
Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner
Thursday: Chicken fajitas

I had forgotten.
I had forgotten how to eat healthier.
I had forgotten that walking makes me feel great.
I had forgotten how exciting it was to see the changes in my body.
I had forgotten the successful feeling of seeing the scale lighten up.
I had forgotten the happiness I felt for my husband's weightloss.
I had forgotten the camraderie building between us in our adventure.
I had forgotten that real food really does taste better.
I had forgotten the empowering feeling of healthy living.
I had forgotten the path.
I have remembered.
