In the depths of winter, I finally found within me an invincible summer.

Update on Near-Drowning of Toddler
Reported by Miss Skinny-Minny-Sleeveless-Dress Reporter from Lox NewsAP Late on the evening of Saturday, October 23, Harry Patootie Laptop was taken to BestBuyMemorialHospital. He is reported to have complications from the accident suffered earlier in the week. The mother, Miss Jenny, was incoherent, but Mr. Jenny said that the baby would remain at BB Memorial in the ICU unit until he is stabilized. The staff at the hospital said that Harry Patootie will be air-lifted to a larger facility on Monday. The spokesman refused to disclose the location. It is possible that the child will require organ transplants. If organs are not available immediately, it could be weeks before Miss Jenny is reunited with her child. She was heard muttering that the doctors at BB looked more like geeks than real doctors.
This blog is to chronicle my weight loss and my life in general. After breast cancer and chemo in 1996, my weight jumped from 125 to 195. I have lost and gained many times since then. Each time I've reached my goal weight, I have had a traumatic experience and gained the weight back. I am in a place that is more sane now. Or maybe just less crazy. If not normal, then approaching normalcy. I need a way for accountability, and a blog seems a good way to do it. I do better with goals if I have visuals, even though I dread seeing the numbers and the pictures. This time, when I start on my diet, I’m approaching it with care and caution….not just jumping in without much thought. I bought several great books that are true-life accounts of weight loss. I want to understand other people who have had my experiences and who have persevered and reached their goal weight. I've started learning how to write a blog, and found out that there are a lot of people like me, trying to be accountable on a blog, and losing weight for the umpteenth time. And I thought I was unique.
