I would like to stray from my usual narcissistic posts about my weight issues and my whining and crying about my lack of self control and discipline and focus instead on taking a moment to reflect on the tragic circumstances in Japan.

I won't pretend to shed any new light on the situation.  I won't act as if my thoughts on this horrific turn of events are any more deep and profound than anyone else's.  However I will say this, my heart is breaking for this amazingly beautiful country and it's amazingly beautiful people.  My frustration over not being able to do more to help is palpable. 

So I do what I can; donate to the appropriate non-profits, send Japan love and light...and pray.

No, It's Cool.....No Pressure

Up (point eight) .8 lbs at this weeks weigh in.  Soooooo darn close.  It's cool, I'm not as upset as I thought I might be.  I knew that this past weekend was gonna be a tricky one since it was my friends bday extravaganza in Richmond.  There were cocktails, fancy hotels, delicious seafood and a comedy club.  And you know what?  I wouldn't trade a moment of this weekend for a loss.  I had the best darn time and I loved every minute of it.  :)

The Illusionist

Please, please, please do yourselves a favor and see this lovely film.  It's by the same people who did Triplets of Belleville.  It unfortunately didn't stand a chance against Toy Story 3 for the Oscar due to popularity more than deservedness, in my humble opinion.  It's heart warming and heart wrenching all at the same time.  Also, BONUS, it's mostly set in Scotland.  Sigh....

I've Had A Crap Day

but so far this week has been pretty good.  Tuesday's weigh in has me down another 2lbs.  *big cheesy smile*  That makes 31.2lbs lost.  Yay....iTunes reward!  I've been waiting for this one.  I have a list of music that I have been waiting to purchase.  I'm so excited and so nervous because if I lose 1.8lbs this upcoming week I will be at my 10% goal.  What's even more amazing is that WHEN I make my 10% goal I will also, for the first time since high school, be below 300lbs.  For the first time in 17 years.  Ohmysweetlord!  Feeling old moment.  Oy.

Alright, I'm back.  I won't bore you with the tedious details of my less than stellar day but let's just say that the icing on the poop cake was a lovely tangle with the law.  And by tangle I mean I got my first traffic ticket.  Over something lame I might add.   Okay, I'm done cryin'.

How has your week been?
