New Year's Eve

Pounds lost: 2 lbs
Pounds to go: 49 lbs

No plans. Might see a movie. Not sure which one. Do I really want to be watching a scene with Johnny Depp in Sweeny Todd or Nicole Kidman in The Golden Compass or Will Smith in I Am Legend as the clock strikes midnight?

I think I will have one last food "hurrah" though. I think I will get an ice cream shake from ColdStone and maybe a burger or a burrito. Or some Chinese food.

It is just another night. But it is the start of a new beginning. Happy New Year.

2008 Will Be the Year

New year, new goal. New blog look.....blue for the incredible blue of the ocean. I am going away to a place that made me feel incredible 20 years ago:

B e r m u d a !

I am going to stay just a few miles away from Horseshoe Bay Beach, a place of natural paradise where I remember receiving validation for perhaps the first time in my life then that maybe, just maybe, life could be enjoyed. I am hoping I can renew my spirit and energy for life.

My trip is 17 weeks (119 days) away. So I've set some goals to reach:

Realistic Goal: 51 lbs lost by April 14 (average 3 lbs /week)

Aim High Goal: 85 lbs lost by April 14 (average 5 lbs /week)

Knowing how I am, I have to aim high or I won't even hit the realistic goal.

This is quite ambitious for me, because I do not even own a bathing suit I can wear under shorts. Well, here we go!

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
