88% Full


"The age of a woman doesn't mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles." Ralph Waldo Emerson



This morning I am feeling like the waning gibbous moon,  88% of full. Okay, so you might wonder what makes an upbeat person like myself feeling less that full?

Well, you see I have finally realized that I cannot continue to just eat anything and everything that I want.  I think I am finally feeling like I am in my 50's! But, according to Emerson that should not mean a thing. According to him I am like an old fiddle.

So I embarked on the South Beach Diet.  I am not hungry.  I eat plenty.  The food is good, but the act of eating has lost its pleasure.  Which makes me feel sad.

I have started a challenge with a co-worker to get this extra weight off.  It is exciting.

It is possible that I am just tired today because of the stormy weather.  A good workout this afternoon should pick me right up, and then an evening with my guy will certainly brighten my mood.   Hey, I am feeling better already just thinking about it.

ok i am 34 and feel the same. What do you mean I can't just keep shoveling food in and not drop weight. We can do it though. We just gotta hang in there :) I am only a few stairs away if you need encouragement.
