Day 226 of 365

My blog has done a lot for me.  It's made me realize I'm not alone out there.

It also has given me a place to:
  • write down my thoughts.
  • complain or celebrate.
  • show off my skills.
  • show off sewing projects.
  • get encouragement from others.
  • keep track of my exercise streak and mileage covered.
  • document my life.
It has given me a reason to:
  • take a picture every day. 
  • buy a new camera (so I can take better pictures).
  • get out of bed.
It has let me:
  • practice my writing.
  • practice getting my thoughts together after having them scattered by too many pain pills.
  • do a bit of teaching (with my tutorials).
  • share the stories of my life.
  • prove I am committed to kids and service members (with my sewing projects).

The one regret - the one area it hasn't had an impact - is in the weight loss department. As much as I wanted it to, it really hasn't led me towards healthier living.  I have not led myself to healthier living.

But my destiny is in my hands. And it starts now. I've talked the talk now it's time to walk the walk. Tonight I enjoyed my last un-healthy meal, my favorite one I remember from childhood.

Two McDonald's cheeseburgers, fries, and apple pie.

My last supper. (Bad-for-me one, that is.)
