Almost Famous

I had a first yesterday.

I went in (again, I still don't understand what is up with my Wii Fit, which told me I was down about a pound for the week...) and weighed in. Up .8 pounds.

I was completely unfazed.

There were a ton (pardon the pun) of excuses for it; I just started my period, I ate high fat and salt content food the night before, and I had skipped my Long Walk for the weekend because of an annoying on and off coughing thing I have going on. Bwjenn, if you gave me your cold over the internet... well... I'll just have to figure out how you did that, because I'd really like to transport other things over the web...) But I didn't bother to state them. Obviously, I knew them, but it was like, not important.

The weight is coming off.

I feel good.

I'm getting, a bit, to feel like I look good. (Next time you see me, real-life, remind me to show off my arm. My word, I have muscles! /Flex)

So, you know, that's cool.

Also, some other cool stuff - blog related - has happened recently... I'm going to be hosting a virtual book tour for Kathy Balland's book Lose the Diet; Transform your body by connecting with your soul. I'll even have an extra signed copy for some lucky reader, so keep your eyes on this spot. I'm not sure of the exact date, but I'll let ya know!

And this article came out on MSNBC. That's me in that first paragraph there. (Yes, Kellylyn is my "real" first name. Isn't it AWFUL? Somebody should slap my mom. Really.)

Finally, I puffyheart my friend Geoff. I don't know why my head can know something, and even my husband/best friend/weight loss leader can know and tell me things, and I just DON'T LISTEN. Here's your stupid sign, seriously. But I've been following Geoff's food plan for almost three weeks now, and I feel SO MUCH better it's just unbelievable.

So, I'm going to leave you all on this note (again with the puns!)

This ain't a song for the brokenhearted
No silent prayer for the faith departed
And I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice when I shout it out loud

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive
- It's My Life, Bon Jovi

Dude! That reporter query I sent you worked out! I feel like such a communications success.

That's awesome that you were quoted in that article. I wonder many times if I will have the "phantom fat" when I lose. Guessing it's pretty common.

Such a great article! And so very true.

I'm happy your nutrition changes are working so well for you! Isn't it amazing how much better the machine runs when it has the right fuel? :)

Also, "It's My Life" is one of my favorites on my walk list. So much so, that I often catch myself singing along...loudly. Sure neighbors and the squirrels appreciate THAT.

I am right there with you on the phantom fat. So many people do not understand this concept. How is it that I lost 100lbs and yet I dont see it. How is it I am a size 4 and I still consider myself in the obese category? Just thinking about explaining it gives me the shivers, only we know!

Can't wait until the book review! I'm totally jealous!

I suspected that was you in the article! Great!

I'm also going to be reviewing that book... Can't wait to receive it!

Woah you are famous!!!!!

Aww Kellylyn is a very cute name (here in Japan many girls add -lin to their names to make a nickname for someone. Like my coworker whose name is Moriya - her nickname is Mori-lin hehe).
