This is a statement my weight watcher leader writes on the board every week. When I first started WW I was clear on what I wanted. I had a vision and a plan to get there. I was motivated and focused and things went really well. I rather quickly lost almost 70 lbs and felt great. I felt on top of the world. I felt strong and confident and like I could do anything. In fact I did do lots of things I'd never done before. I entered my first marathon; I took up karate (I'm a brown belt) ; I took up scuba diving; I could go on and on but you get the idea.

See if you can follow this.

I live in the most f*cked up state in the union. We may be beautiful but thanks to our clueless leaders there will be no ocean swimming for the foreseeable future.

Back on March 31st we had one of the worst rainstorms ever. This after 45 days of rain so the ground was saturated, the creeks and streams were high, dams were near overflowing, it was really bad. So then it rains again. At the same time one of the large sewer mains for Waikiki broke (we have the world's oldest sewer system. There is almost constantly a break somewhere). Now the powers that be had a number of choices, get pumper trucks working round the clock to pump this stuff out, let the hotels and homes back up, or dump the raw sewage into the Ala Wai canal. Guess which option they chose? That's right, dump. They released 48 million gallons of raw sewage into the Ala Wai canal which then flows into the ocean (I don't believe that number, I believe they pumped a lot more in). Now, anyone with half a brain who …
