Wild Rant!!!!

I read this and watched the video and it just set off something inside of me that I have to express.

A 12 year old girl has had liposuction because she couldn't lose weight and wanted to feel "normal" whatever the hell that is!!!

ABC news video and article.

Now I have to say that I do feel for that little girl. Kids are unbelievably cruel and being different, fat, smart, stupid, makes you a target. But her parents I'd like to slap silly.

They say she's been on a diet since she was 3. Well, that right there is wrong on so many levels I don't even know where to start. You should never put a child on a diet. Did they ever consider healthy food and maybe some play time????

They said they've tried everything. I don't think so. This is one of my pet peeves so bear with me. I have seen soooo many people who say, "I've tried everything. Nothing works. I can't lose weight" (said in a high whiny voice). Then I've seen them eat. Fast food, junk …

Confession time.

There are a couple of things I have to come clean about.

First, I've been really struggling with my weight lately. No, I mean really struggling. Way more than I let on here. Today I woke up and weighed in at my highest weight in 3 years. That's bad.

Second, I've gone back in my journals and looked at what's worked in the past compared to what I'm doing now. I saw then differences and I immediately started instituting changes. Granted it's only been 1 day but I feel better already.

Third, the focus of this blog is going to change a little. Until I begin my Honu training, end of December I think, I'm going to focus on weight loss. A Lot!!! It won't be like I ate this, this, and this, I burned xxxx calories, blah, blah, blah....... It will be more along the lines of everyday accountability to myself. I have another, secret blog where I record the incredibly boring minutiae of my weight loss journey.

The main difference is the level of activity. I have got to g…


Oops, wrong turkey!!!

It's hard living so far from family at this time of year. Some years we have friends and stuff over. This year, not so much. We are heading out to Waikiki later to have dinner at a restaurant there. I always love doing that. I rarely go to Waikiki and it's fun to play tourist once in a while.

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Another day almost over.

The best thing about today is that it's Friday!!!! I have a 4 day weekend and I soooo need it!!!

Nothing much to say really. Boring day and I'm tired. More tomorrow.

Blogger hates me!!!

Or maybe it's my computer that hates me. Now that I think about it, the entire inanimate world is pretty much out to get me. Paranoid??? No way!!!

Anyway, for whatever reason, I could not post Sunday or yesterday. Not that anything happened that was note worthy but I was trying to blog everyday for 30 days. Oh well, the best laid plans of mice and men..........

Meanwhile, life goes on. I have 1 more day of work left then a 4 day weekend - woohoo!!!!!

Rocco has managed to not rip open his stitches so that's good. They gave me an Elizabethan collar for him but when I put it on him he just sits there and whines. Not a pretty sight. But the wound looks like the edges have sealed and he doesn't seem to be too bothered by it, so I'm risking leaving it off. I love to live on the edge (the edge of financial ruin!! It will cost a fortune to have his face restitched).

Workouts have been happening. Due to some lower back pain I've added yoga and pilates 4 times a week and I'm…
