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."



So.  Welcome to FROM JENNY TO SKINNY.
