I was a yelper. Not just an occasional yelper, but a full blown everything I ate I wrote about yelper. That was 8 months and 25 plus pounds ago. I knew I had to get food out of my ever waking consciousness. So, I quit yelping. That is I am not actively yelping anymore but my account is still open. Well, the quitting did help me to use my mind for other things. Like cooking (which is probably better than all the eating out I did) but that still hasn't helped the excess baggage I am carrying around. My next priority is going to be getting into better shape. By rook or by crook it's going to happen! My life depends on it. I started this plan with a trial run of fasting. Not the best move for a diabetic. I made it through 2 days of only enough vegetable juice to maintain my blood sugar level but on the eve of the second day, I woke up feeling really sick and found my blood sugar level the lowest it's ever been. Comatose? Not quite, but if I'd slept longer? who knows? Every post won't be this somber. I enjoyed yelp mostly because it was a creative outlet for writing which I hadn't done in years. That's why this blog has transpired and will most certainly be a number of things for me. Create or stagnate. Write on.
