Some of you may have noticed recently in my comments that My Dear Mrs. Tuna mentioned I had lost 15 pounds, but it's 15 1/2. Let's be accurate.
True, my boobs are bodacious and overall, I'm quite salacious. But I weigh more than I should.
Menopause and midlife marriage dissolution added the pounds, and to my shock, they did not simply drop after the divorce.
I decided to go for it.
The minute I made that decision, my sugar use waned. When the NutriSystem meals arrived, I got my portions under control.
To help me even more, Sandra decided to return to fitness competitions. Hearing about her workouts and what she was eating inspired me so much that after three months, I felt I could go off the NutriSystem and design my own diet.
When the weather cooperates, I walk the dogs for my exercise and their joy-- one dog at a time to provide me with even more exercise.
I'm under no illusion that I'm ever going to be as ripped as Sandra, whom I admire tremendously for her devotion and will power.
Sandra is Sandra; Lola is Lola. The world couldn't handle more than one of each of us.
But I'm continuing to lose, and I ain't gonna quit till I feel like me again. No crazy fad diets or fasting. Good healthy meals and snacks that let me take off the weight slowly and don't make me feel deprived.
In fact, since I'm doing so well, I'm going to start posting photos of myself as I turn into more and more of a loser. This is a pretty big deal because the only photo of me that's ever been on this blog was when you saw the back of my head in front of City Lights Bookstore during my San Francisco holiday.
So here's my current photo:
Infinities of love,
