Nearly June 1st

Lots of stuff has happened since the last time I blogged.

I have let my hair go gray.
I have settled into my new house.
I have paid to participate in another Dietbet challenge.
I have started seeing private therapy clients in my office.
I have planted lots of flowers.
I have paid for a trip to Disneyland.
I have kept up with the payments of my Curves dues.
I have gotten off work for the summer.

One thing has NOT happened.

I have not lost weight.

In fact, I've been finding my happy place by eating.

Not good.

So, I'm going to make a couple of changes.

First, I'm going to change the name of my blog.  I'm tired of being "An Even Fatter Girl".  It's like it's a self-fulfilling prophecy.  And, if this is a diary, I'm sure not very good at documenting my daily life.

In fact, there is nothing about the name of my blog that I like.  It doesn't describe what I need to do....  What I want to do.....  What I HAVE to do in order to live.

So, I'm changing the name of my blog to "From Jenny To Skinny".   Because that's what I want to happen.

I thought about changing it to "With God As My Witness, I WILL Be Skinny Again", but I decided that was me channelling Scarlett O'Hara.  Plus, it was too long.

And, don't worry.   I'm not SO into magical thinking that I think I will lose weight just by changing the name of my blog.   Really.  I SWEAR!!!!!

OK.  Maybe there is a little teensy tiny bit of magical thinking that says, "Not only are you what you eat, but you are also what you describe yourself to be."
