Strangest Dream I've Ever Had

Yesterday I had the strangest dream I've ever had. It started normally enough - I had to fly back to Memphis from Los Angeles. At the airport I got my tickets and I noticed that I was going through Moscow, Russia. I thought it was a strange layover, but I was willing to go along with it. In Moscow, I was kidnapped and taken to a soviet community!

There was a group of us, and a man known only as "the General" was our overseer. We weren't mistreated at all, and it was explained to us that we were exposed to a Russian ray of some type, and any metal in our bodies had been converted to something else that was top-secret. (I have dental implants, which  were apparently enough to land me in the settlement.)

In our cell / room, there were two aquariums, one of which had a large snapping turtle. I remember being very concerned because the snapping turtle would eat the smaller fish. Allusion of some type?

Years passed, and over time we were allowed into the community. It was a small, communal farming committee with a general store and farmer's market. We weren't fully integrated into the society, but we weren't excluded either. Still, the need to get home was there.

At one point we tried crawling through the air conduits, and there we met a woman who seemed to know information. She told us that everyone there was with the Russian military - the farmers, the shop workers, etc. Also, the General wasn't a general at all, but a colonel. She came with us back to our room, and there she  shot the General right in the face. As we escaped, the CIA rolled in and took us home.

The end.

Two more pounds!

In the past week, I've lost another two pounds! Sure, some of that was whiskers, but it's amazing to see what working the program does for me. :)

Been too long since I've posted. I've been lazy with my blog. I dunno.

Things are going ok. I'm back truly working a Weight Watchers program. So far, so good. I want to see my weight start with "15" very badly, though. Soon and very soon, I suppose. :)

Getting Back to It

So, it turns out I'm back up to 181 lbs. I re-upped my Weight Watchers membership today, and that's the number that was on the scale. I'm still not back at "obese," but a couple of bad weeks could put me there.

I acknowledge that I like to eat emotionally. It's not about the food; it's about the soothing that comes from fat and sugar. Cookie Monster and I definitely have something in common. I'll keep you posted.

Sorry for no post in so long

I've been going through a lot recently. The main thing affecting me today is going through foreclosure. I'm excited about the chance to move somewhere else; I'm not so excited about giving away my pets. I'm still looking for a home for Sassafras - here's a link for more information: http://goo.gl/Rww15

Heck of a run

Just got in from a four mile jaunt. It's amazing what I can do when I'm not obese! :)

Seriously, though, it was a great run - almost two miles on the greenline, and the others on city streets. Who could ask for anything more?

I remember when I first started Weight Watchers back in January, for the first two weeks, around this time (4-ish in the afternoon), I always felt SO HUNGRY. It wore off...in time. I guess I just have to wait until my belly shrinks again.
