Are YOU talkin' to ME???

Wow! Summer gave me a Super Blogger award. I am sooooo not worthy (as I said in response to her post). Thank you so much, Summer! I'm not going to send it on to other bloggers because I don't know how. Also everyone I like already has one since I am so slow to respond. I'm hoping I can figure out how to post my award.

Work is so incredibly hectic. We will be having our state audit in 2-3 weeks, so now is the time I start going insane! I know that I can get my work done if everyone would leave me alone, but no, I end up doing everyone else's work and no one helps me with mine.

Poor Josh still has a funnel head. He went back to the vet again on Saturday and had to have one of his funky nails removed. He came homw with a little blue bandage on his foot (with stars). I wonder if they have pink for girl dogs. When he went outside we had to tape a baggie to his foot. He did. not. like. it. Not one little bit. When the time finally came to take off the bandage, I had to practically sit on him and pull up on his collar like reins to get him to cooperate. Good thing he's a fat dog, so I didn't hurt him! (My neck, on the other hand, is another story!)

Richard's chat was good tonight. All the excuses. I think I've used them all. What I wanted to ask him was, what about when you DO lose weight, not all of it, but enough to feel really good, and you become complacent and cease being vigilant. It's happened to me quite a few times. How do you stay on top of things?

Congrats on your award!

I liked the chat tonight, too. I have the same issue. When I emailed him today I said the hardest thing is this is for life. I lost 72 pounds, ate a candy bar, and gained it all back.

My biggest fear is stopping somewhere on the quest again, freaking out, etc. My biggest fear is making it for life.


I'm so glad I joined, his chats are almost magical.

The answer to your question is so very easy, but very hard to do. Do not grow complacent. Remember how easy it is to regain your weight.

Frankly, I'm scared all the time. I'm not sure that's a bad place to be in.

Congrats on your award. I'm glad Summer gave it to you. I had considered you for it too. I just had so many people to choose from.

But I'm here all the time.
