Raging at unreachable glory

I got my prize from the San Jose Mercury News fashion editor today - it's Hollywood Glo body luster powder from Benefit Cosmetics. It's like they know me and my desire to be girly and glittery!!

I also made an appointment to speak with the UW Bothell CSS Program adviser next week. I'm going to ask her if it's possible to register for 0 or 1 class only per quarter, based on how my schedule goes. I'm thinking of registering for the Technical Writing course next quarter, which meets on Saturdays only. I think it's something I can handle, since it's only once a week, and on the weekend.

I have been so good this week - 3 days sticking to the Weight Watchers plan. (I'm not kidding, this is a streak for me.) It's actually getting easier and I'm much happier eating the stuff I made - it just seems healthier.

Thanks to Leslie for providing me with a new website I think is just SO cool, even more so because it's an Idealab! company. It's basically a cross between Friendster and ePinions. You write reviews of local businesses that you can share with friends. We're always doing this via word of mouth, so it's cool to have a site for it. I use mailing lists at work to get this info, but I like this site so much better! Let me know and I'll send you an "invite" to be in my network. You can get $5 Starbucks cards for writing 5 reviews. I wrote my first 5 today. Leslie is way ahead of me with 50! :)

Well, back to reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.


  1. Just wanted to give you some encouragement regarding WW. I think their points system is very good and it helped me lose a bunch of weight while in grad school. With regular exercise, I got down to about 175 back in 2002. I've been real good at staying between 180-185 since then. At some point I quit following the WW system and looked into a couple other diet systems - something based on metabolic profiling (I forget the name - it was through a company called HealthETech) and the South Beach Diet. While Phase I of SBD sucks, the Phase II/III menu is reasonable to good. I know its hard to do, but its worth it. I feel like I have more energy and am happier since I lost a bunch of weight (I figure I was over 220 at the outset, though I didn't weigh myself then). Anyhow, stick with it! It gets easier.

  2. Thanks Jon! Once I started eating at home more, WW became a lot easier as I eat pretty healthy on my own. SBD was just too damn hard for me, and can you believe I didn't lose a pound the first week of Phase I, which made me think it was totally not worth the suffering. Only 32 more pounds to go, if it's even possible ;)

  3. ooo - invite me into your network!

    good luck with everything. Sounds like a lot of things to do at once, with classes and all, but if anyone can do it, you can.
