I’ve lost 11.5 lbs so far, from 135 to 123.5 Just a couple lbs away!
I actually passed the 5lb mark awhile ago (and have just rounded 10) and am finally getting around to crossing it off. It’s nice to have your “big” clothes feel loose.
I didn’t dress up like a pirate or hijack a galleon, but I did dress warmly and work as a deckhand on a three masted schooner, which was also quite fun.
He’s probably old enough to be my father, but I can’t help it.
Because that’s like a difference of a whole %. To me it makes sense to measure it on an empty stomach…
Well, anyway, on a full stomach my I’m at 27%, and an empty I’m at 26.04%.
Which is higher than I want it to be
(note: it said 29% before, but I took more accurate measurements (in front of a mirror) and I accidentally said my neck was 3/4 of an inch smaller than it actually is, so I was off by 2%.
I absolutely love Firefox, and would never use any other browser (except maybe Opera but… nah I’m addicted to the add-ons)
Now that enough time has passed so we’re not on the “rebound” from our last dog (a beautiful golden retriever who lived to be 12.5 years old before we had to euthanize him due to illness, whom we miss dearly) it’s time to bring another golden retriever into our lives. We’re going through a local rescue group, and are just waiting for them to pair us with a dog.
Once you’ve had a dog in your life, it just feels empty once they’re taken away.
In the process of adopting a golden from the Golden Retriever Rescue of Wisconsin… Filled out the app, had the (favorable) home visit, sent in the landlord’s approval letter, now just waiting to be placed with the right dog!
...I could’ve done for myself, for human rights, for animal rights, for the environment, for my health, for my conscience… in short being vegan is good for EVERYTHING!
Going vegan is like quitting smoking. You know that sort of rebellious feeling you get when you quit, because you’re not going to be Phillp Morris’s pawn anymore? Well going vegan is sort of like that. You’re saying you refuse to silently agree with animal cruelty, you’re saying you refuse to get diseases you could quite possibly avoid with proper nutrition (thereby denying the pharmaceutical companies the income from the cholesterol medications you won’t have to take) and you refuse to buy into the ‘Happy Meat’ myth.
Good for you!
...because that would mean there was nothing new left for me to read! This is a forever-goal, to keep you on track.
