Thanks to everyone who replied to my whining about my weight (well, except for that whole bulimic thing...what gives?) At any rate, i'm not usually the type to complain about that kinda stuff but i guess it was just my time to complain. And surprisingly I'm over it. I like me just the way I am. I mean, if my abs were solid or my butt was just a tad bit smaller, I'd be happy. But not any happier than I am today! So, I'm done with that whole fat thing and I'll be getting on the scale again...some day.

On another related Amy note, I'm lonely up here. I've been gone for a little over a week and have already treked back home over the weekend. I guess I just miss t2 and I'm not sure how to react to it. This is the 1st time that I've been out of town for work and had someone that I cared enough to miss. I'm very happy about that. Lonely, yes, but Happy when I think about what is waiting for me when I get back :)

No other updates. Still running. Having to do it on the treadmill which sucks. But I'm doin it. And I've made lots of runner friends here. And today I met someone who ran San Diego last year (his first) and he had lots of good things to say about it. Thanks.

By the way, if you get a sec why don't you run on over to eaglepointrunner. his link is in my "blogs i like". His wife just passed away and it was heartwarming to hear him talk about her. and besides that I like his blog and think that some of you might too.

Glad to hear you're over the scale issue. Me and the scale totally do NOT get along either. Biggest brat I ever met. Never listens.

Thanks for the tip on the other blog... really good entry I thought as well.

Amy, thank you for the kind words and the encouraging email. It is easy to write about something you know and love. Everything I said about my Mona just seemed to flow out naturally. Thanks for adding me to your blogs you like and the complement in your post.

I agree . . . we should outlaw scales! I still don't understand how a 6 oz piece of chocolate cake can make you gain 2 pounds. It must be some weird science going on. My only luck has been doing the weight watcher thing. I don't really limit what I eat . . . I just have to know what is the proper serving size. It's tough to think that a meat serving should actually be the size of a deck of playing cards!

Have you decided to come to Birmingham for Mercedes? I'm going to be doing the half. Let me know and I can tell you what hotel and restaraunts are good.
