Vote for a blog makeover/a weight update/exercise

OK first of all, my friend Colleen and I are both in the running for a free blog makeover from

The voting is open now at and if you don't want to vote for me, then please vote for Colleen. (I don't know the 3rd person).

It's in the left-hand column of the blog.  Voting is open for a few more days.


Also, I did weigh myself this morning... weight: 216.6 lbs

Did 5k today in 48 minutes.

I know I've been a little quiet but I've been a bit moody lately - thinking about and missing my parents.


I hope all of you are well.


  1. I seriously hope you win if I don't. I think you're a fantastic person and I am enjoying getting to know you better!

    It's funny you should mention being moody. I've been missing my father a lot lately. I've been weepy over him (my oldest daughter is convinced he "haunts" our house). For me it's never gotten easier as people have promised. I've just learned to live with it, I guess (sometimes better than others).

  2. A nice loss this week. You doing great there my friend. I am sorry about your parents and the loss. I can't imagine.
    Your rocking along with your 5K, keep it up!!
    I'll go vote for you as soon as this is posted. Take care and God Bless!!!

  3. Voted for you, good luck!

    I've lost family that I love and miss SO much. There are times I'll remember something and it aches so much it's almost a physical pain... and then I'll immediately crave chocolate. It's awful how obvious the link is for me.

    EXTRA congrats on the loss. It can be really hard to stay focused when your head or heart's in a rough place, but you did it. :)

  4. Did I just see straight??? A 6 pound loss???? No shit! Good for you girl! You got my vote. I'm so sorry you are having a tough time-take your time, we'll be here when you get back...

  5. Great loss this week! You are doing great with the 5k! It's hard to stay focused with everything else - you are doing great!

  6. Polar's Mom - I *wish* hon... only a 0.4 drop from my last weight update but it's 4.0 down from last Saturday.
