Sunshine and Happiness

I think I'm really a plant. I seem to use photosynthesis to survive.

After a terribly long, cold and frozen winter - The sun has finally come out. Literally. Well - the rain has come with it, but it's still warm so that's ok.

I find that the sunnier it is, the more I do. I know that's probably true for most people - but for me it's means the difference between 150 lbs. and 300 lbs. Some days I wish I lived in a land of perpetual summer.

Anyway - to get to the point - I stepped on the scale a few days ago and discovered (against all logic) that I had lost almost 10 pounds.

Craziness. How in the heck? Not that I'm complaining, mind you. But 10 pounds - just from sitting on my tushy, eating Creme Eggs? I didn't realize that was possible. But then I got to thinking and figured out I have been slowly eating less and less. Either I'm watching my 10 month old niece, Rosie - or I'm playing World of Warcraft. Each of those activities require both hands, therefore, less time to eat.

So when I saw that number I decided to bite the bullet and start exercising again too. I mean, heck - if I can lose 10 pounds lounging on the couch - I can lose more if I get up and move. So I've been taking my niece for walks around our little cul-de-sac every day. Four times around the little circle - which I think is a bout a half a mile.

I've also been watching what I eat. Not so much what - but how much. And it seems to be working.

Guess I just wait and watch the scale go down now.


  1. Thats so good to hear...you are emerging into the spring and sounding happier and more positive...and I bet your niece LOVES your walks
    Great to read such a positive post and well done on the 10lb

  2. I think I need to come and rub up against you. Not in a creepy stalkerish kind of way, cos ewww, but in a gimme some of that good luck kind of way. I'm only 2 lbs lighter now than I was a year ago. It's ridiculous!

    I've decided to start over...so we'll see what happens.

  3. all that walking will definitely add up. good luck.

    i'm about to head into winter and i hear ya on the cold = less motivation. already i don't want to get off the couch!


Be nice. Or I will find you and sic my pet zombie on you.
