Out Of The Ordinary

I am not a big drinker in the least, but tonight I treated myself to my very own bottle of ice wine! It was a lovely indulgence and I admit I am feeling very relaxed and content right now. After another game of backgammon with my wonderful husband I think it will be time to turn in. What a truly nice evening…

And I must note that I am flabbergasted about, flattered by, and forever indebted to the now more than 500 individuals who have decided that this online journal is worth following. Thank you all so much! You are an incredible bunch of people and I truly appreciate that you take the time to read my words and comment on my journey. You are fabulous!!!

  1. I wish I were insightful. I really do. Honestly, I feel like I'm watching a train wreck which is both horrible and morbidly fascinating. I keep thinking "There but for the grace of God go I." Most of us who follow the various weight loss blogs have had many a day with indulgences like yours. I think the difference is that it usually does not last for such an extended period of time. It is also puzzling how very jovial you are about it all. This must be some kind of experiment and at some point you'll let us in on how it ends?

  2. I rarely comment here. I read pretty much daily and as I read, I try to think of something to say that would (1) not be insulting or rude and (2) would be helpful.

    Which is why I rarely comment. I got nothing. I must say that your stated appreciation for those of us who are following left my mouth hanging open.

    I'm beginning to believe the "experiment theory."

    I wish you well, 266. I do. I know what it is to struggle. I pray that you find what you need to grab hold to a healthy lifestyle and I earnestly pray that you will not regain your weight.

    Regaining is, of course, a fear of everyone who has lost and gained and lost and gained.... The fear that this time is just one more circuit. I hope that is not the case for you.

    I'm sorry to cause your follower tally to no longer be over 500, but the tone of this blog has now become too disturbing for me to follow along. I'm sorry. Be well.


  3. Unfreaking believeable! I'm outta here too...

    Still hoping you find your way back and soon...
