Heading to MA and ME

Well, I'm heading back to places I haven't been in awhile --
Massachusetts and Maine. I'm thinner. But not thin enough.

But nevermind that, I'm going to have fun with Helena and the dogs.

Anyway, I thought I would post this photo of myself from 2002...call it my attempt at motivation. At least I don't look like this anymore:

Here I am at my heaviest, about 320 lbs. This was right before British live-in leech, I mean, boyfriend, left me for someone in Florida he met online. (And no, the dog isn't mine.) In the four years I was with him, I gained 100 lbs. I'm not saying he's the reason. I'm just saying my time with him wasn't healthy. I don't blame anyone anymore. I just try to deal the hand I've been dealt.

So that photo not only feels like a lifetime ago, but it is about 65 lbs ago. In comparison, I'm doing fantastic.

What all did you do to lose weight? I'm struggling right now. I know what I need to do, but doing it is the hard part. Ugh.

you're like butter to me

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.
