    Cloud 9

    The last couple of days I have felt rather manic despite having a cold/sinus thing going on. I cannot believe that reaching my weight loss goal has made me feel so awesome. I suppose it's because I've never in my life reached a weight loss goal. It just feels goooooood!

    My social calendar is quite full this week. I'm looking forward to a couple of dinner dates with friends and a lunch date with a guy from high school that I haven't seen in 20 years.

    Today I walked wearing my new work boots. This wasn't such a great idea since I now have little skin left on the bottoms of my feet.

    It felt good to run and so I did. I was able to go faster and farther than ever before, even wearing the boots. I feel so alive when I'm walking or running. The exercise heals my soul. Addiction transfer has never felt so good. (I'm referring to a phenomenon that happens to many weight loss surgery patients when they have to give up food. They transfer their addiction to something else. Sometimes it's sex, alcohol, drugs or gambling, etc.)

    I'm still here, working on my issues, but trying to see the brighter side of life. :)

    Oh man, the work boots. I once had a pair of shoes that I wore into work. I had about a 10 minute walk. My feet where a mess when I got into work. When I walked to my car at lunch time to go to a doctors appointment I took my shoes off and walked in my socks the rest of the way... and despite that my feet were bleeding. I can not imagine how you managed with the work boots. Ouch!

    I bet the guy from high school is going to be surprised. Have fun.

    ... these boots were made for walking, and that's just what they'll do...

    Jenn, you must be so proud of yourself. Heck, I am proud of you. You have become so strong, mentally and physically. And every picture I see of you looks like you are just glowing. I am thrilled for you, that you feel so good.
    Enjoy every minute of the feeling of success. You deserve it.

    Nice boots....

    Most addicts have addiction transfer. I still haven't found one since I quit smoking.... Glad you picked a good one.

    Your pic, by the way, is on the verge of porn hot....

    well at least your addiction transfer is not to a destructive behavior!

    That usually happens...the transfer of addiction. I call that shifting the corpse in a casket from one shoulder to another. What you need is not transfer, but transformation and transcending...

    signgurl: just because i think you'll be amused... our scale said the same thing that day you posted the scale picture...
