Because she SAID so...Friday fun

I'm reposting this and having fun - play along won't you!!  Thank you Me, Drazil, & Sheniqua

1. If you could be a weather forecast, what would you be and why?


sunny - yup.  Boring, but warm and makes most people happy.  that sums it up.  (Calling my therapist now...)

2. If you could be a crayon, what color would you be and why?

Not sure - but it would have some funky all out there name...like Lunar - something that someone thought up and it sounded good and now they're slapping their forehead going "what the HELL was I thinking?!?"

3. What is/was your biggest physical goal you want to do when you hit your goal weight?

I really want to finish a half ironman.  Really really.  I've done sprint triathalons and I've done a half marathon, and I know that if I put my mind to it, next summer, I COULD compete in a half ironman. 

4. If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

A cat.  Even though I don't particularly LIKE them...they have a life of luxury!! Lay in sunbeams being their primary goal.

5. Just because I’m new to some followers and I’m curious – let’s do a put it out there in black and white stat question.



What was your highest weight? 310

What is your weight now? 212.4
What is your goal weight if you have one? 150 (subject to review!)

What is your goal size if you have one? I would love to fit in a size 8 - any size 8, just grabbing a single digit size off the rack and knowing it fits....

What diet/program/tool do you follow/have if any? I count calories – 1200 a day is my goal

How did you lose the weight current to today? Gastric bypass 9 years ago - now calorie counting and 12 step program

6. What’s your best advice for people in this weight loss journey?

find what works for you.  Low carb?  Raw food?  whole food?  Nutri system, jenny craig, weight watcher, richard simmons, wii fit - whatever works FOR YOU.  You know your body - and if you don't educate yourself.  Make small goals, and keep moving forward.  There will be set backs.  Keep looking forward.  Find friends who will support and encourage you.  Deal with the demons that got you there - banish them - replace them with healthy positive thoughts and the actions will follow. 


7. Have you ever shaved your whootananny?

Answering!!  Yes.  and waxed.  Prefer waxing.  By  large margin.
