Blogging Milestone

I've been blogging for a year now and about every two weeks I think I'm gonna quit. Cause really, who wants to read about the life of a 47 year old, overweight woman in an almost empty nest in the heart of Oklahoma? But my mother reads this, so I'll keep at it a while longer. Hi mom.

As I look back over the year of posts, though, it's interesting (to me, not to anyone else) to review "a year in the life". I've blogged about weight more than any other subject and I still weigh what I weighed a year ago. Bummer. But Mark and I learned to dance (swing) and we renovated a few rooms in this old house, and we ate our way through Seattle, I said good-bye to my precious Grandfather, I put a Winnebago in a ditch, and, well, you've read all about it. Most importantly, I've connected with family and friends in an unexpected and satisfying way.

I'm not one for New Year's resolutions, but seriously. This weight has to come off. I could do one of those soporific video diary things about my weight loss journey. Maybe you could use it to put your toddler to sleep. "Mommy - I want to watch the fat lady talk". Actually, I'm traditionally built, according to Mma Ramotswe, of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Good books. Words like fat, obese, porker, tubo-licious...not my preferred descriptors. But they ARE motivating. They're motivating me to get new friends. Just kidding. I don't really have any friends.

OK, there you go. Another post has come and gone. Here's to another year of blogging about nothing in particular. Love you!

Happy Blogiversary!
I'm a new reader enjoying your posts.

You sound a lot like me, a 47 year old, needing to loose weight, Okie girl.

Hang in there...somebody's listening.

It's okay Tubbo, we love you and think you are beautiful. And yes, in many countries you would appear wealthy and well-fed, none of this scrawny, hungry-looking stuff. Besides, I am cold ALL the time. Lack of insulation? If I were a whale I would not live long.... but at least no one would want to hunt me for my blubber... maybe I could be a tropical whale and just hang around in the Caribbean and let people pet me and feed me fish... I guess that would make me a dolphin huh?

Hey, your brother reads it too! Whenever Rudy hears me laugh out loud at my laptop, he knows I'm probably reading your blog.
Serious weight loss is high on my list this year too. I swear if one more skinny person tells me I'm not that fat I'm gonna whack 'em!

Happy one year! I'm very glad you are still blogging. It's very cool to hear what's in that head of yours. Don't stop!
