Yes, I was told that lie about Black people don’t swim when I was growing up. I think I was told that so my parents wouldn’t have to tell me that this was yet another thing they couldn’t afford for me to do. Actually, a lot of things I wanted to do as a child was hampered by either money or my strict religion or both. Well, now I’m an adult and I want to learn how to swim. Yes, putting my head under water scares the hell outta me. But I want to learn because I’m 35 years old and this is something I should know how to do. I am going to consult my stylist about taking care of my hair while learning how to swim because I am not going the natural route. Nothing wrong with going natural, but you have to have the right head shape to make it work and I don’t have that.

I still haven’t lost much weight. I’m still on BP meds, but I haven’t developed diabetes. I got denied for weight loss surgery by my husband’s insurance company. By the time I went through the appeals process and got approved, my husband lost his job and the insurance that went with it. So now I’m back to losing it the old fashioned way: sweating and starving. I am considering going to Dr. Weight Loss and taking a boat load of pills to lose some weight really quickly and then losing the rest slowly. My writing class teacher recommended Alli. I don’t eat a lot of fatty foods so it might help. And it would be cheaper. At BJ’s a 2 month supply is $60. Dr. Weight Loss costs about $200. So I don’t know. I’m thinking about Weight Watchers again, but I don’t have $40/month or the time to attend meetings. I’m sick of the commercials actually. Honestly, I’m tired of commercials with celebrities saying, “If I can do it, so can you!” Really? Sure, I could do it if I had nannies taking care of my kids so I could have 5 hours/day to train with my personal trainer, and eat specially cooked meals that my personal chef cooks for me. I want to be healthy again, that’s important. But I also want to be cute for my 20 yr reunion which is 2 yrs away.
well, I’ve been workin on my novel for the past 2 years almost. My goal now is to finish it by the summer and work on refining it to submit it for publishing.
