    Congrats on your new low! That is my goal weight, and if I remember right, you are pretty close to yours. How does it feel, other than drowning in your scrubs?

    I think you need to get the new car, just to get it off your mind.

    I'd say get a new vehicle. This one seems to rapidly going into negative balance (more going into it than it's worth.)
    Congrats on the new weight!

    I know that cars are inanimate objects and don't have feelings or wants, but I swear my car is trying to communicate with me. It is saying, "Enough. I'm done. It's over." This morning at church the trunk decided it did not want to close. The latch was jammed somehow. Someone helped me, but with no tools we couldn't fix it. We bungee corded it shut and I drove home. Humiliating! I was able to fix it when I got home.

    I was all set to go look at cars today and guess what? They are all closed. I have a couple of newspapers (remember those) and I will look there and online and see what I might be able to get.

    I'm on the potato diet again. I don't know why, I just felt like it.

    Well. I think I found a car. A Dodge Dart. Red with rally stripes. New. Crazy, huh? The dealer isn't open. I'm going to go there first thing tomorrow.

    This morning at church a friend took a picture of me with her new iPhone.

    I'm torn between thinking I look good and thinking that I look old.

    Woot! A picture of Siobhan! (You see, Sabine, it can be done...) Now I can focus my mental image of you.

    I think you look great too. Love those colours on you.

    Siobhan, being "old" and looking "good" aren't mutually exclusive..... it is entirely possible to be both "old" and "good looking".... speaking from the perspective of an "old" guy....

    Thanks all for the compliments! I'm not fishing here, but really, I don't look like a fat person, do I? Now I am normal-sized. Neither am I skinny and frail.

    My outfit got a lot of attention. Not a lot of plaid trousers out there, at least in this milieu.

    The pleasures of being a 'normal' size!

    I have thought of myself as over-weight since I was 12. (Even before I WAS over-weight, sadly. Why can't we appreciate what we've got when we've got it? Why are western women so screwed over body images? Why, why, why?!?) I am really hoping that 1) I can get to 'normal', and 2) I can recognize and enjoy it when I do.

    You've got it going on, Siobhan. Not skinny/frail, not overweight: just right!

    And I remember hearing about those trousers before. As I recall, they caused a sensation last time, too. Very fashion forward.
