The totally shame-free, actual-life, real-time blog where I tell all, show all--without nagging or whining (all right--maybe a little whining...)--in my attempt to stop being a fat middle-aged woman who avoids mirrors and clothing stores and start being a woman at home in her body...brought to you by a real woman, the Independent Weltha Herself. I won't give any advice, and I'm not asking for any--just companionship on my journey.

Every day...a new post. Every other real weight. Every pictures.

For every woman who has ever tried to just lose the extra weight and feel good...overall and about herself...and who lived to tell the story.

Day the 13th


And I'm not sure why I made a big deal of it, but I do love Saturdays.

Right now, I am taking a break from my major vice - Mafia Wars on Facebook - and doing today's post.

Here's what I have discovered: I don't much get into exercise yet. I am, however, wearing my walking shoes with the curved soles and that is taking some getting used to.

But I'm not really going out walking or running on the rebounder. I need to get with it.

To complicate the issue, I am going over to my BFF "Poodle's" place tonight for some pizza (albeit good pizza) and a movie.

Okay, Weltha--how about running on the doggone rebounder AFTER you get home this evening? Yes, I think I will. Will post tomorrow!

I'm moving toward making more really good things to eat (delicious AND health-promoting)--and although I am not there yet, I will be soon. Very soon. Plan to start with Julie's Coleslaw and mojoandkiki's Salad Dressing. Reasonably soon, I am going to post my two signature homemade salad dressing recipes--I originated them, so get ready for Garlic Valhalla and Thai Pepper. Believe me, either one is guaranteed to make a person want to face-plant in the big salad bowl.

So...good-bye for today, dear followers. Please encourage me a bit if you can--I need to get with it on the exercise. If I put a movie in, it makes the running on the rebounder soooooooooo much easier. And it's perfect walking weather--yes, I plan to walk tomorrow afternoon. Will be posting about all of this soon...and yes, I love watermelon pink because it reminds me of what joy good foods bring into our lives.

Thought for the Day: Whoever came up with the idea of steamed edamame was a flat-out genius!

Can't do it without you all--CAN do it with you!
