    LOL! You guys are too funny. Trust me, clothing covers a multitude of sins. And no, I am not going to confess here. I am glad my husband is a proponent of modesty. He was very happy when I bought the bathing suit with the most coverage I could find. Pressure to reveal more than I should would have been hard to take. It's pretty bad when you are committing crimes not only against modesty, but also against esthetics...

    I was not a good girl and got distracted by the Internet and other things and went to bed too late. At least I slept like a baby. I've restricted my liquids in the evening, and the nights are finally cool again, which helps me immensely. I did have that snack, reheated acorn squash with butter and cinnamon. I never noticed before that acorn squash is very sweet. But then, I have almost gotten used to 90% chocolate, so smaller amounts of sweetness seem like a lot. The red grapes I bought for the GSs and forgot to mention were so sweet I could hardly believe it. Almost overwhelming.

    Sabine, my house is very easy to look into from the ground floor and our front yard is very shallow. No nekkid running around below the second floor. And after some embarrassing incidents, I do try to get dressed fairly soon in the morning, and to be wearing something presentable.

    Breakfast/lunch today was leftover spaghetti squash, served reheated with some avocado, pesto, garden tomatoes, and feta. How's that for a weird combination? But it was good.

    Still not feeling too energetic, but I did take a short walk in my heeled boots to see if I can stand walking in them. I have a touch of gout in one foot, so it was not too terribly happy, but short walks are quite acceptable. I won't be using them for my 2k+ hikes, for sure.

    I might take another short walk, just to get out of the house and get some more sunshine. Rain again tomorrow, apparently, or at least a decent chance of it.

    My best(?) naked incident happened when I was nursing Eldest, and actually involved clothes. I was at the stage where I was exhausted with my first newborn, so not getting dressed and just throwing on this loose house-coat thing, which fastened with two buttons at the top, but was very full, and held itself closed when one was standing up. My neighbor came to the door for something, and I staggered over, holding Eldest up on my shoulder. Just as I opened the door, a HUGE gust of wind threw back both the door and the housecoat! I was so shocked I didn't know what to say. We both just pretended it didn't happen. What else can you do? But I get a good chuckle at myself when I think about it now.

    Hi Judg. Just checking in. I've done a poor job of keeping up with your journal recently. Glad to see everything seems to be going pretty well and that you're feeling good.

    it's funny you mention things that never used to be sweet all of a sudden being sweeter... I've noticed that with raw almonds. They just seem sweeter to me recently.

    Sabine, that is hilarious, although I'm sure that you didn't feel like laughing at the time. I assume the neighbour was male, or it wouldn't have been as much of an issue. Seriously, I would rather have something like that happen with a stranger; you don't have to face them again afterwards.

    Anyway, heads-up to all the worrywarts out there. I have a busy weekend in store. Both DH and College Son decided to come home for the weekend, so I will be absent a bit. I will be back to check on your journals in two or three days. I was just getting back down to my lows again, so hopefully the weekend will not involve too much feasting.

    I'm back. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

    Mine did involve a little feasting and a little cheating, but not much. So I hit a new low by a few ounces on Saturday, and bounced up a bit this morning due to yesterday's feasting, but not much at all, so I am well pleased. I would like to drop about three pounds in the next couple of weeks, and then just rest on my laurels for another couple of weeks. We'll see how it goes.

    Although I am encountering a problem I never anticipated. I'm getting kind of tired of everybody talking to me about my weight. I know they're struck by the change, but when the same people talk about it over and over, well, it starts getting old. I know they are trying to be nice, so I'm not annoyed with them. I've been wondering a bit what to do about it, and I think I have hit upon the perfect solution. I will switch the topic of the conversation to them as fast as possible. I mean, most people like to talk about themselves, right, and my life is too quiet to provide much material for casual conversation. This will be good for me. I suspect I talk about myself too much anyway, and getting proactive about talking about others can only be good.

    It can be a bit tiring. But with me people are used to seeing go up and down every two years on average, they are apt to say, "wow, losing weight Again!" :-/

    Right now, I'm at the low end of my normal range, (240 - 285). I'll be interested to see people's reactions to me when I get below my current weight. It really does change the way I look and in the past, some folks didn't like it all that much.

    It is really unusual to see someone lose as much weight as you've lost. But I remember feeling the way you do about people focusing on the weight loss too much. Sadly for me, it didn't last long as I put the weight on soon enough.

    But now I know how to eat, and I do not believe there's any going back now.

    Hey Glad you had a good weekend! I like you're strategy for taking the topic in a different direction. I'm at the point where I wish someone would notice that I've lost weight! Since going primal I've lost 23 pounds! But, its been over the course of a year - so I guess its not quite so obvious.

    NOTICE the change of my avatar! No more doggie -- thats really me! Sitting in a kayak in the Pudget Sound! This was my first time in a kayak!
