I was talking with a friend yesterday and I said "you know, in the universe of people's body sizes, I don't really think I'm fat, there are just parts of my body that are fat". LOL, but this is true. There are at least a few parts of my body that I think are just fine. I won't list them today because unfortunately, my weight is up a little bit. Less than a pound and it is no surprise with only two perfect food days and several "special" food days this week. I'm not feeling awful but am, once again, re-evaluating.
I also realize that virtually EVERYTHING in my life is fantastic except my weight. I have a fantastic partner, fantastic friends and family, fantastic job, fantastic house, fantastic fun life. Seriously. There is not a single other thing in my life that I think is bad. I am lucky. So I will try not to whine too much...
Past few days have been preoccupied with the fires. Yes, Nearby Town = Santa Barbara and the fires were within 100 feet of DB's family house last night. Everyone was already evacuated, so we don't know for sure what happened, but the fire burned down the canyon past the house and there was a fire truck in their driveway this morning when one of the family managed to walk up the road to see what was what. We suspect that the fire fighters worked all night to save the house (and houses of neighbors). There is still another unburned canyon on the other side of the house so it's not out of the woods yet but the last news we had this morning is that the fire personnel have left so they must think all is ok for now.
The fires are so sad. I love Santa Barbara. If I could live anywhere on earth that is where I would pick. It is so beautiful. But the beauty also makes it dangerous.
Please send good thoughts for less wind, cooler temps and no more houses burned.
