Taking a Break...

Hey, two days in a row! I'm almost back.


I read almost everyone of my blog buddies posts last night and I commented on very few. I, for some reason, just feel that I can't give any good advice right now. So if I missed commenting on your post please forgive me. I will try to do better.


This break from obsessing over my weight loss is so much better for me right now. I'm still doing pretty good and definitely not eating the things that are bad for me. I'm sticking to my healthy meals and snacks. So I guess I have developed a healthier lifestyle (without the exercise).


I've been reading some and crocheting A LOT the last week. Got an afghan and two pair of socks to finish before Thanksgiving so I can send them home with my daughter in NJ. Yep, she's coming for Thanksgiving. YAY!! I won't have to spend it alone and cook for just me and the dogs. Then all I have left is 2 scarves and a pair of mittens to finish after that. Then my Christmas will be done. Not much in the store bought presents from me this year. I always prefer getting something made with love myself so I hope everyone else does too.

I had the news on just now and Huntington, WV just hit the national news. It's about 3 1/2 hours away right on the Ohio border. They are number 1 in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, lack of teeth and a couple more that I don't remember. And here I thought I lived in the county that had all of those things. It was really funny that the mayor of the city told the news that his city was focusing on the economy instead of themselves. How funny is that?

Have a great week!

Sounds like you have some great gifts going. I loved seeing your comment today. I had missed you. You don't have to give advice (though I won't pass it up) all you have to do is pop in and say HI (0:

Sounds like a mini-break was just what you needed!

Our local paper had an article about Huntingdon this morning. Memphis gets a bad rap for being overweight and sedentary (present company excluded--now, anyway), but Huntington's stats were worse than ours. It blamed a lot of the problem on the shift of jobs from physical to less-physical and the proliferation of fast food places. And hot dogs. They apparently love hot dogs there. My heart goes out to them. It's not easy...
