I will make a post soon with a bit of vacation rambling and then once I have the time to figure out how to jazz up this site, I will do that, too. I already have a name for it. Maybe I will put up a different blog and leave this for the occasional rant. I have to take the time to figure out how to link to others as well.

Anyway, I think I will post the most unflattering vacation photo that I can find. That's not too difficult since I have gained so much poundage. I might also put another picture from vacation in which I am not so hideously fat looking so you know that I don't always look so unattractive. I got me some of Heather's thing going on(this is where I would link to Heather's post about this, but I don't know how...plus is it proper to link to other people's blogs or maybe one should only link to one's own posts??)...the thing in which I don't think of myself as fat until I see myself in a photo. I just look physically uncomfortable in some of these photos. I used to look at other women who were heavy around their middle and really feel badly for them because they looked uncomfortable. Now I am that woman. 

I saw a woman on one of our hikes up Mt. Mansfield who had to be in her mid-eighties. She was so vibrant, full of life. I want to be that. 

Enough talk. Just do it.

Welcome back!

I'm still kind of working up to getting started myself. :)

Re: links. I link to other people. Sometimes I ask them first. Other times I don't. :) You link by highlighting the text that you want to be the link, then clicking on the thing in the tool bar that looks like a green dot with horns. It will pop up a window for you to put in the url that you are linking to. Does that make sense?

BTW, my word verification for this comment is "bitlongr" That's weird.

Glad you're back!

And I'm a woman who is middle heavy right now, too. Pants are the enemy. (I guess it should be the fat...but I get mad at the pants for cinching the fat)

Okay...clearly, I needed to catch up, which I just did and am feeling like I missed so much!!! I am working out on the treadmill like a fiend, there is no better motivation than all the skinny, little tarts at the beach to make me question my own self worth!!

You'll get there...be gentle with yourself!!
