I’m 48. I’m getting married in less than 30 days and I need to lose another 15 pounds or so. But I’m not really doing much about that lately. I do pay Weight Watchers $40 a month and that has taken a pound or two off.
I started this blog to document my weight loss journey but as it turns out, dieting isn’t that interesting. I think it would be if I had 100 lbs to lose and I had been abandoned by my husband who left me for his trainer or some other tragic side story but nope. I’ve had a pretty comfortable, generally happy life. Not that it’s over, just so far so good.
Characters in my life:
Annie – 15-year-old daughter. Very dramatic and very kind and funny. She is a very good actress and always tells the truth, unless you ask “are you out of bed, yet?”
Brigid – 13 -year-old daughter. Dancer, needs to be right almost as much as her mother does.
Ex-husband – Mitch, my ex-husband. Good guy even though the cat hates him.
Derwood – Deren, husband to be on May 18, 2013.
Mudd – Canine love of my life.
Tallulah or Lula – Latest cat addition to the family. She’s much bigger now.
Molly – My sister who moved back to Oregon from Texas. My 14s of readers may know her as my social conscience and life coach who let me have Diet Coke even though I said I gave it up for Lent.
Katie – Molly’s twin who lives in Denver. She lived with me last year and she was more of my butter and cheese coach.
John – our brother, no one’s twin. He plays golf sometimes.
I live in Portland, Oregon where I am one of 7 registered republicans. I have a B.A. in French from Colgate University which is going to come in handy when I help my children with their French homework.
Life is good and happy but it turns out I’m a little chunky which brings us back to where we started…Someone Fat Happened.
