Johanne's Journal, 14 June 2012

I've been 68 for one whole day now.

My birthday gift to myself is to get myself back on track. It's been almost a year now since I lost weight and I take full responsibility. I'm still down 50 lbs but I WAS down 70. It's been a slow creep, but I have to re-lose that 20 lbs and I feel terrible that I LET it happen. Thank goodness my good food habits had been well ingrained or I'm sure the whole 70 would have been back. At least my over eating has, for the most part, been healthy foods.

I didn't get to go to my yearly SCA camp out. It was a combination of health and money issues. All of my friends are currently up at Smithville Lake, having a ball. It's been a great week for it. I usually celebrate my birthday up there. I tried really hard not to feel TOO sorry for myself yesterday. I took myself out for "Chinese" and spent the evening out on the patio with the Tiki torches lit and watched the lightening bugs dance in the cool breeze. It was quite lovely.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You are not alone. If you lost 70 lbs, you know how to lose - 20 lbs will be a breeze once you decide you are doing it! Go for it - you deserve to feel good, not "terrible."

Bonnie, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I am so sorry that you missed your SCA event. It stinks when something we really enjoy is out of reach, but there is always next year. How are you feeling? How is the stress level? Getting better, I hope. Sure do miss you! HUGS and lots of LOVE, my sweet sister/friend. Hope this next year is your best ever!! :D <3<3<3

I wished you Happy Birthday on FB, but here it is again! I think birthday celebrations should last a month, don't you? Sorry you missed the SCA camp "do". You will go next year. Sorry to hear about your health issues. Getting old really sucks. Hang in there and let's both get back on track, okay? I am off my plan a bit too. Miss you. Big Hugs!!! (I love tiki torches!)

Stef, the stress is lightening. I had a few really rough months, but they seem to be letting up some. I miss you too and I plan to be back every day. I HAVE been journaling my food, to some success. Love you to my friend.

Tracy, thanks for the birthday wishes. I really missed my campout, but next year will be here before I know it, and, hopefully, I'll be ready for it.

Heather, thanks for the birthday wishes. Many of my friends called to tell me they missed me. It's so nice having good friends, including the virtual ones!

Is, I was a bit lonely, but I did enjoy the day, for the most part. My health is definitely improving and I've started to drop the weight again. Hugs!!!

Sandy, I agree, getting old sucks. However, I prefer it to the alternative. LOL! I'm glad you're back too. I missed you too and really LOVE the big hugs. They are returned ten fold!

Sazy, I love that kind of evening, but not necessarily on my birthday. I know it's silly, but I really do love celebrating the years. Love to you too!
