fri-day, fri-yay.  
Off to the doctor's in eight six minutes. I have finger-nibbling hope in better living through chemistry.

I realized today that since I began pursuing my health and fitness goals last May, I've lost sixty pounds. I'm not setting any weight-loss records, but it's pretty cool.

Also today, I figured out how to use my own created images to customize the icons on Windows folders. Now I have little kitty-cats and stuff, like the one on this post. Kind of fuzzy at 20x20 pixels, but still. I cheer myself.

ETA: And to whoever sent me those YSI song files last night--thank you! :>D You are awesome.

Thank you! I got a new prescription, for Ritalin. Took the first one a few hours ago. I'm not sure yet if it's really kicking in. It's more of a half-dose to acclimitize. I have to test my BP etc etc. But yay for round 2. :)

Wow. That's really impressive. I think you're selling yourself short by being so blase about it. :)

Oh, I'm pretty damn happy, I swear! *g* I just want that last 40something pounds to go, go, go. And then I'm going to have someone throw a banana cream pie in my face in celebration or something. Or perhaps just buy lots of teeny little shirts.

You rock.

How you do this customize thing? Never mind--I google.

It's surprisingly easy w/the icons--did you google it out? Because I can give the steps. :)

WOW!!! Sixty pounds is really good. I hope it's all making you feel better.

Oh, definitely. I'm not as sensitive to the summer heat, and I don't get out of breath walking up the hill to my apartment, and my entire body doesn't ache all the time. *happy*

Sixty pounds!
That's fantastic.

I always see this women on the cover of Ladies Home Journal who are all, "I lost seven pounds and now I am no longer a disgusting behemoth!"

And I want to pimpslap them again and again.

Re: Sixty pounds!
Oh god, I know. People just had this special weight-loss issue, before and after, which I always love. I remember that a few of the women were down to like, 150, 160. And they looked awesome, but you know there's some anorexic chick out there thinking, "Cow!"

better living through chemistry

I like this idea, think I might make it a personal catch phrase since I'm trying it myself right now with mixed success.

Don't know which is more impressive: the weight loss, sticking to the trial and error with the chemistry through all of the ups and downs, or the days not drinking. They're all veeeerrry impressive accomplishments that I hope you can get a glimmer of happiness from on the days when things don't feel so great.

It's totally not invented by me of course. I should google for the origin but it's post-lunch and I'm lazy. :)

or the days not drinking

123 days! And thank you. *hug*
