Friend in need

Ya, still feeling like crud and was wondering if my sickness could be strep throat as I've had a sore throat for 4 nights straight! Ok, I'm done bitchen about how I'm feeling.

I think I'm going back down to vegas in 3 weeks. I will stay with my friend Dawn, probably, though I can use my free hotel offer as I must have racked up some points there to get some freebies. She is going through a rough time with her chemo treatments and is in a bad way emotionally so I will go down and help her out or at least spend more time with her. There is a chance she will go off the chemo or at least go off the double dose and back down to one treatment. Anyway, she seemed happy that I offered to come down and the side benefit is that it is the land of sunshine this time of year down there. My hubby and son are going to Oklahoma to visit family so I thought this would be a nice chance for me to spend time with a friend.

I'm still working on getting some pics of scuba adventures and also pics of me when I was thin for another post. As I am going thru the photos I realize this is going to take longer than I thought to find all my pics and see which are my favorites and find the missing ones that my hubby put somewhere like the garage!

I realized my original wt loss blog has just become the story of what goes on in my life which isn't too exciting. I've been traveling some but that's the usual routine but have been enjoying the chance to get away some. I've been thinking a lot about how I want to get to my goal wt and why I'm holding myself back. Gotta go get my son, so I hope everyone is having a good week!

Update: Here's a pic of a underwater restaurant in the Maldives, looks cool!!

I think now and then we all need to break away from just posting about one's your blog, sistah!

I think that a weightloss blog needs to be about other things as well. Weightloss is a lifelong worry for us. When we get to goal it isnt going to dissappear. So of course post more about where you are and where you are going. it is all part of being happy. I would rather hear about whats going on in your life and know that you are happy than reading constantly about the struggles of getting back on track. Variety makes an awesome blog..and I love visiting yours!

Vegas!! I miss me some Vegas and I am only 3 1/2 hrs from it. I think that sounds like a great idea visiting your friend! And like the others have's your blog talk about what you want to talk about.

I enjoy reading your day to day stuff, even if you ain't losing weight! We are more than what we weigh! And go to the Dr, sore throats should not be ignored!

Oh I love the photo... wouldnt that be awesome... As long as it didnt spring a leak!!
Getting out of the obese BMI wont take you long. I didnt think I would ever get there. But I have and you will too. Get your throat looked at so you can build yourself up and get back to gym!

You are a great friend. It is really important to have someone by your side when you are going through a difficult time.

I agree with the other posters, part of what makes a blog interesting and hearing about the author's slice of life. Weight loss is just part of the whole, big wonderful story! :)

I think we all think our life is not very exciting and intersting enough for other people to read - I know I do.

They restuarant in thr Maldives look fantastic - I'd love to go there.

The blog and weight loss is about your life. I know what you mean, though. It is boring if you just post every day: I went to the gym. I ate an apple.

On the other hand, if you feel that will help you stay motivated, that is OK, as I will always drop by and say hello! We should blog to whatever degree helps us to reach our goals.
