I'm mostly just checking in because there's not much to report other than the scary stuff in the Fatastic Journal.  I've been taking it pretty easy since then and working hard on the weight loss and exercise routine.  My quest is now to find a good elliptical rider or stationary bike so I can exercise without the impact on my feet, which have really been fighting with the plantar fasciitis lately, yet one more incentive to lose the weight.  I'm very determined this time as opposed to the past 10-15 times when it was a matter of "if I lose, great, if I don't, I can always lose later."  Saturday convinced me that if I don't do this, there might not be a later.  I'm 42 and I want a whole lot of later left.

Fall has been marvelous to me so far, even though that day was really hard.  We had a wonderful harvest ritual Saturday night with an emphasis on being grateful for all of the wonderful things in our lives.  I have so many that I don't think I could ever begin to list them all anywhere.  I have a wonderful life and about the only thing that could accentuate it would be to have financial stability, so I already know what I'm going to work on next year if it's not in place by Spring.  I also would love a really nice night of sleep, but I think I can likely work that in before Spring comes.  :o)   Sleep is still my coveted, lusted-after dream that eclipses even candy or sex.  Sleeeeep.  I could spend my days writing, "Mrs Katrina Sleep" on my notebook.  I love sleep.

That's about all for now.  Things are blissfully quiet and my head is so tired, it's like my brains are numb, so I'm not doing much but nodding off between sentences. 

Hope you have a blissful week full of miracles and wonderfulness.  I'll be around more later.

Take care!
