and have a fulltime job where I am appreciated and that pays well. I would, I would, I would. I hate bulimia, purging just doesn't work when you're old.

If you lost that 15 pounds, we couldn't discuss all the things we'll never have/do because of our FTs!

I keep reading about "living in the moment" and being aware that something in the future won't make you happy. But since I can't walk right now, and I keep catching glimpses of me, as a blob, sitting in a wheelchair, it is hard not to think "if only I were thinnner" I'd be happy. And I think I would be!

I'm working with a book using journaling as a method for weight loss. I'll let you know how it goes. Perhaps the one good thing about not walking is that I can't easily wander down to the kitchen when I'm bored.

Hi Racer,

Think we should look into grant money for a study on fat thighs linked to failure? Of course, I immediately thought hmm, grant money, then I can get liposuction which would be counterproductive to the study, but still...

Hi Daisy,

Please let me know how the journaling works. I'm sorry that you're feeling like a blob. Deep down I know living in the future isn't mentally healthy, but my present is so depressing right now that I don't want to dwell in the here and now and definitely not the past. Sigh. Big sigh.

D'y'all think that might have something to do with not returning a call from a friend? Do you think that maybe telephone chat with a crazy woman might help?

A phone chat with a crazy woman would definitely help. Much better than the postcard for bariatric surgery I got today from my health care provider. That is what I get for allowing that evil medical assistant to weigh me.
