Losing Weight; Finding Men

Gymming Around

Went to the gym with Mr Listener last night. I just don't know if I can be there with him. He wore shorts and used the treadmill next to me. I was so distracted, I spent the first 20 minutes just trying not to stare at his legs. This has morphed into an infatuation. Not good.

He's still all the things I wrote about, but I am way too interested in him and rapidly losing perspective. You know what happens when I lose perspective? I make the wrong decisions.

And as a side note, I think the man is way too interested in sleeping on my delightfully firm yet soft mattress. Yes, I'm being used for a good night's sleep.

I'm joking.


We have not kissed since the talk. But there's still a lot of flirting and a lot of hugging.


Who knows. Not where my focus should be anyway. I wish I could just check my libido like a coat at the coat check and come back and pick it up 60 lbs later.

Is he at least impressed by your dedication to getting healthy? Because I sure am!

Wow! What a difference from the May 3rd workout to the May 4th one. But your still kicking ass!!

I stood on the scale today and nothing has changed. I just can't decide if that's good or bad. I haven't worked out all all since the wedding, so I guess it's a good thing.

Keep moving forward darlin!

You never fail to crack me up. LOL @ checking the libido at the door!

I've got to send you an e-mail about the Jersey boys I met... oh..what..a...night.

Mr. Listener is quite the athlete is he now? ;)

Thinking of you this morning. Hope you have a great day today. Make the choices that will get you healthy. You're worth it. Thin is safe. Looking forward to your update.

I also wanted to send you some distance Reiki today. Will be doing a session on myself and will include you. Probably around 10:30-11:30am EST. :)

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.
