Did I mention yesterday that after all I went thru, my son picked Father's day to be his birthday. Luckily it only falls on Father's day ever few years but still.. ;}

Stupid UTI, it still bugging me. Well my lower back is anyway, off and on. I've taken the damn Cipro as directed adn it better work. I don't have time to be ill right now. I do love the Azo stuff that makes me pee orange though. I took a b-complex today and now I"m peeing day-glo orange, think orange kool-aid. {okay maybe TMI - ;}

Weight seems to be going down, or at least the inches are. I haven't weighed myself in a few days, but my pants feel looser and some how I look different. My swimsuit {cheap 16 buck Walmart job} is already showing signs of being stretched out and worn out. I havne't even had it a month yet. What a rip. I can't really afford some expensive Speedo or other suit. I hope it can last until I find a good clearance sale. I dont' wanna buy online as I need to try it on, and I can't afford to by several and return them.

Its so funny how the people at the Y see me vs. the people at work. Non of the people at the Y has any clue that I was once over 300 pounds. They just assume I've always been this way. Where as at work or out in the stores etc.. somebody who knew me from before is asking me about my wieghtloss, did I have surgery, how did I do it. etc..

Its kinda nice to have people just accept you and not talk about weight. There is a lady in my class probably about the same fitness level as me, maybe a little better shape. who is trying to get a relay team together for the Fargo Marathon next year. Instead of running the whole marathon {no way that going to happen anytime soon, unless I could afford a personal trainer full time}, its divided among 4 people so each runs 6 miles of it. I'm thinking of taking her up, but my best mile now is about 15 minutes or so, and even that I don't think I could keep up for 6 miles. But I am sorely tempted. If I really worked, I think I could do it. The next marathon isn't until Mother's day weekend 2008, so that's almost a year. I think I could work my way up to that. That's something most people who knew me before would have a very hard time believing.

I'm really considering telling her I'm in.

The American Heart Association is having a walk for Life in August. I keep thinking about it {heart disease has taken too many loved ones from me}, but for some reason I can't get up the guts. I think I'm goign to just have to go for it. I need to push my self so I don't have an exit. That's when I'm best at stepping up to the plate.

I need to cogitate on that.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
