Woooooo hoooooo!!!!!!!!! 199.5! Finally, finally finally! Goodbye twoderville!!! I am so thrilled! Now you and I both know that I have a loooong way to go. But this little number brings my weight loss so far to a cool 25 pounds! I have 50+ to go, but getting under the 200 mark is a HUGE milestone for me. And despite the fact that it's St. Patty's Day, luck had nothing to do with this accomplishment. It was sweat and determination, combined with God's grace. Period.

The weather is beautiful again today. A teensy bit cool for a wife-beater "t" but I didn't really care. I was out there today like it was 70 degrees. I am not completely convinced my feet ever touched the ground! :) I'm off for another walk later this afternoon while I wait for little family members to finish their detention. Hahaha. My very, very skinny friend and my blister -ridden friend are on a mission as well.

Oh! And by the way -- I took commenter galynn's advice about the weights. Guess what I got? A weight vest!!! I'm going to play S.W.A.T. while I'm walking to spice up my life a little. (We'll talk more about THAT on another day.) And I'm going to plot my course, as another commenter suggested. The idea is to track the miles I've walked heading toward a specific destination. So far I'm in the middle of a corn field in rural Minnesota. I have to walk another 3 miles to get to a gas station for a snack! lol! Then it's onward toward Vegas!!!

Okay folks, that's my story today. No corned beef or cabbage for me. No green beer or green milk. I'm going to settle for some green veggies and green tea! May God look after you today on this marvelous feast day of St. Patrick of Ireland. And may St. Patrick intercede for all of us to drive the "snakes" out of our lives too. Top 'o the day to ya!


  1. Wooo hoooo! I am doing the happy dance and whooping about. The guys at my house think I'm C-R-AZY! Yipee, skipee, tap, tap, tap, hop, hop H-O-P!!! Can you see me? You GO girl! (Just think of the calories I'm burning doing this DANCE for YOU, YOU, YOU!!!) Happy! Happy! Happy! Dance! Dance! Dance!!!

  2. Three quotes by my fav Albert Einstein

    “We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

    "If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.”

    “You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”
