Where am I going?
Is it okay with you if my journey never ends? Do we always need to have a destination? Must we always have a road map? I mean, where in the hell are we going anyway? And, when we get there---don't we have to go somewhere else anyhow? We can't just say "okay, I'm done". Can we?
I think I just want to keep traveling. No. I need to keep on traveling. So, maybe it's best that I didn't lose 100 pounds yet. To be honest, I'm not sure what I'll do the day I figure out that I lost 100 pounds. Will I sit down on the side of the road or will I dance in the street? And then what will I do? Will my journey come to an end? No. Probaly not. My body is not one of those bodies that ever stays the same weight for even a 4 hour period (what kind of aliens are those people who say "I weigh the same today as the day I graduated from high school"?) I'm sure I'll gain 2 pounds within 24 hours of hitting my 100 pound weight loss. So, I'll have to hop back on the road to loosing 100 pounds again. My body will make sure that my journey will continue. And, I guess that's good news. I know my journey will have to end sometime. But not now.
Speaking of traveling......
According to a recent study, the higher the cost of gas, the lower the rate of national obesity. Apparently, people would rather walk to work (or at least to public transportation) than shell out major dough to fill up the their tank.
What cut backs have you made due to the high cost of gas?
