Just wanted to check in and say hello. I am hovering at 248. Not a whole lot to say about that. I am trying to eat healthier then I was there for awhile. No excuse but my fridge was freezing everything and it took like 8 weeks for them to figure out the issue. Meanwhile, I ate junk that whole time. Made me feel like crap warmed over.

I am still trying to walk as much as I can every day. My knee is hurting badly and I am limited to what I can do but I can't just sit on my ass all day either. I just DO NOT want to have knee surgery. I think swimming is going to be the best option to get some exercise without impact. I no longer have a gym membership (first time in YEARS) but I do have access to a community pool here in the development. I just need to heal 2 more weeks and I can go there.

I am getting a sleeve of tattoos. It's Ariel, Flounder, Sebastian and Ursula from The Little Mermaid. I have one more session to sit and it should be done. I will be sure to post pics when it is all done.

Until next time...

Catch Up

Helllooooo! How are you all doing? I am doing okay. Not too much to report on the weight loss front. I am 252 which I have been for what seems like forever. While I am not gaining, I am sick of this plateau and need to get off my ass and do something about it.

I am thinking of opening up a ceramic shop here in QC. The kind where you paint the ceramic item and I would fire and glaze them.  There aren't too many things for kids to do around here and I think it would be a perfect fit for the demographics of this area. It makes me nervous and excited to think about it. I feel if I take a small step each day towards the goal I can make it happen. I am still batting around names but so far Art from Your Heart is the current front runner.  That way if I expand it to other mediums like glass fusing, it will still be applicable. Have any suggestions?

Other then that things are going pretty good. I have finally made some friends and Sophie helps me get out and socialize. I have had her in 4 different training classes: Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced I and we just finished Advanced II. We are going to have a graduation party at the local bar and grill that is dog friendly. Should be interesting! LOL! Sophie's favorite buddy in the class is an English Bull Mastiff named Jackson and he is 150 lbs. I will be sure to take some pictures.

Until next time...
