82 Days Until Dragon COn

A little more history.

10 years ago, I moved again.  This time to California where is was cloudy, foggy or rainy every day.  There were hills everywhere that made casual walking unpleasant.  Biking and rollerblading downright icky.  I knew no one, so I hid in the house.  I was away from my family and the things I knew.  I was lost.  I was in a serious downward spiral.  I would drop my husband off at Bart (the subway) in the morning and then go to the donut store on the way home.  I would get my 2 donuts and go home get back in bed and not get out until it was time to go pick him up again.  This went on for several months.  Needless to say my weight BALLOONED to the highest it has ever been.

I started to get to get better and got a new job.  I  hired a personal trainer and lost a lot of weight.  YAY.  A year later, I got another new job and it was stressfull and totally depressing.  I stayed there for 5 years.  Why?  Because it paid REALLY well and I knew I was going to be leaving California as soon as enough money was saved to buy a house.  During these 5 years the weight went up and down.  I tried all sorts of crazy diets and even went to one of those weight loss clinics where you could only eat the food that they provided and 1 lean meal a day. The food was terrible.  I ate 1 cinnamon granola bar 4x a day and then a cheese and onion omelette every day for over 2 years.  I was MISERABLE.  BUUUUTTTT I did loose 60 lbs.  YAY That was great, right?
