Hello, by way of 5 things:

1. I’m alive. And let me tell you, folks, all things considered that feels like a victory of gigantic proportions. (Note: The previous comparison was not a veiled comment on my current measurements. We’ll get to those later.)

2. I’m starting to feel like myself again. Or maybe I’m starting to feel like some new version of myself, one that hasn’t been around in a long time, or ever before. I can listen to music again. I can read a book without realizing that I’m not paying attention to the words on the fifth try through a paragraph. I can get out of bed each morning and not spend every minute thereafter waiting until I can crawl back into it. I feel better, just like everyone said I would eventually. Stupid everyone and their being right and stuff. ;)

3. I don’t really want to talk about it here. Yet.

4. I’m back on the Weight Watchers band wagon, and tearing up the road. Seriously. After the chaos of the last few years abated, it turns out that all that energy I’d been diverting to just keeping myself from exploding into a million little pieces could be channeled back into working toward my weight loss goals. I’m feeling stronger, remembering how nice it feels to be in control, and…

5. I DO want to talk about that. Here. Now. If anyone’s still out there, I’ve missed you. I’ve missed me. So…Hello. Again.


  1. Hiya Sara! I'm still around - needing desperately to pull myself back onto the WW band wagon. I'm actually making somewhat of an effort the last couple of days, at least. I'm glad to see that you're feeling better and that things seem to be coming together. Been thinking about ya. Take care!

  2. Oh Sara! I have missed you! I hope you are back on the journey with us and will share your wit and wisdom along the way. When I hit my 100 pound loss I quoted you at my meeting. In Nov of 2007 I mad a snarky comment about "* results not typical" over at the 200+ board. You responded with an insightful and encouraging comment about working to be extraordinary and not typical and it has been a touchstone for me ever since. Thank you and welcome back!

  3. I am glad you are starting to feel 'Sara' again! I may not use these posts in the same way as others, but I still miss them. As always, I wish you luck and wish you well!

  4. Glad you're back. I often checked in over the past few months, looking for a new post.
    Remember - one day at a time, one hour at a time, one minute at a time, whatever it takes.
