    Come over to the dark side... Although in your climate, even I would wear them much less.

    That's because I hid them. You scrunch up your sweater around your waist to make it less obvious that the line underneath is not smooth. Then you put on your scarf and knot it around your neck so they don't stop to notice the belly sag from repeated pregnancies. A few more pounds from now and the clothes will be loose enough, they will do the camouflaging on their own, but for now, I use my time-honoured techniques. I also did not include the photo of me standing at an angle that made my thigh look a mile wide. I don't think that's quite cheating, because at the other angles it's not as bad. Just an unfortunate perspective.

    You are too sweet. And you should be providing us with motivation pics yourself. Who knows, I might actually catch down to you some day.

    Aaah, those pictures did me good! Looking really nice Judg! I think I may need to get myself a scarf or two for artfully covering unfortunate lumps and bumps. Though honestly, I think you are looking like you could toss the scarf if that was the only reason you used it (I know it isn't - just saying). I see everyone is getting visited by the spammers tonight!

    Well, I'm feeling slightly better. Still not getting quite enough sleep (my own fault this time - diddled around way too late instead of going to bed). I had to run out again willy-nilly, so I got my walking in. A bit of a nippy day for it, but I bundled up enough, so I was okay, even in a skirt. Got my senior's discount at the drugstore, LOL! Very thoughtful of them to have it when I was going to to anyway. They play all the really hokey pop from the 60's when it's seniors' day, and it drives me nuts. At least they broke it up with some decent Christmas carols this time. The only good song I've ever heard in there on a seniors' day was a Peter, Paul, and Mary one.

    Anyway, two muffins and some kefir for breakfast/lunch, pulled chicken over cauliflower for supper, with blueberries and kefir for dessert, which was an experiment. I prefer the cream, really, although it was fine with the kefir. A bit of chocolate-free Judg Fudg in there somewhere: coconut oil, almond butter, dab of apple butter, and cinnamon. Yum.

    LOL. Thanks, Tomi. No, no writing yet. I want to see more energy, more muscle definition, somewhat better health. Then I'll think about it.

    Coll, that is something weird for me to wrap my head around. They did you good? Wow... Scarves are kind of my signature, at least in cooler weather. When it's hot, I go for dangly earrings or some other not-too-blingy bling. But then I usually have a scarf in my purse, in case I have to face over-enthusiastic air-conditioning.

    LOVE the new quote on your sig. So true! My hubby and his ex would have the girls make out christmas lists every year - if we gave them something NOT on the list they would be sure to tell us that they didn't ASK for that item - they would accually be upset that we bought them something they didn't have on their list. When youngest turned 18 I put a HALT to the christmas lists! Oldest was 21 when she gave us her last "list" ................. so very pathetic. And when they were little girls - the parents and maternal grandparents would buy BOTH girls gifts on birthdays so the "non" birthday girl wouldn't feel bad for not getting a gift! Good Grief!!! Now they are both grown women and still expect the world to bow at their feet! Bad Parenting!!

    I'm 33 and still write a Christmas List...

    Judg, I'm glad you're feeling better. Beautiful pics! Fuchia is definitely a good color on you.

    I haven't tried the bath yet. Face it, who has time for a 45 minute bath when you have 2 young kids? Plus, Brad would try to join me... no thanks.

    Jenn, LOL! I very much hear you. That was the first bath I took in years. I had to set up speakers in the bathroom to give my brain something to do.

    Tomi, my kids request wish lists from me. I often forget to do it, but it makes them happy when I do. Sometimes I ask them for lists too. But we issue these as suggestions, not expectations, so it works well.

    Well, I finally did it people. I decided to live dangerously and eat that last individual-size pizza in the freezer. After almost 8 months of no more than tiny helpings of wheat (like the breadcrumbs in a single meatball) it was time to put wheat to the test in my own individual life. I ate the whole pizza. It was a thin-crust pizza, mind you. I enjoyed it, but it didn't classify as heavenly bliss, or something I could no longer live without. And I didn't get the nasty reactions that Siobhan got either.

    But neither was it a neutral. I got some allergic reactions within an hour or two, much like citrus does to me. Red rashes and itching on my hands and inside my wrists. And general itching all over. Not severe, but noticeable. And this morning my tummy is a bit sore. If I suck in my gut, I can feel it.

    Conclusion? Wheat is not a severe allergen for me, but it is definitely a stressor. I don't need to voluntarily add another stressor to my life, I have enough of those already. Very small amounts very occasionally will not be the end of the world, but I will continue to avoid it as much as possible.

    My weight has been hovering around 142, which is more than a pound above where I would like it to be. On the other hand that is about 3 pounds below my last baseline weight, so I'm not complaining too much. I'm going to see if I can wrestle it down to below 141 before Christmas. That will mean being careful, and the occasional day of deliberate under-eating. Feeling under the weather has not been helpful in this department.

    I did do my long walk yesterday, to go run errands. It went well. I rested at the coffee shop, finished my errands, bused home, and still had a wee bit of oomph to me. Not a lot, but I didn't have to crash the moment I walked in the door, so that was nice, especially because that URTI is still hanging on a bit. It just doesn't want to let go, although it certainly isn't as bad as it was a week ago.

    Have a great day, everyone. I'll try to come by later to check other journals, but now I really have to deal with other things.
