There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

So, I finish class today instead of tomorrow, and I figure, great, I'll call Delta and change my flight. There are half a dozen flights before the one I'm taking, I'm sure to get on one of them. I was R-O-N-G wrong. They had one first class seat on the early bird (that leaves at 5:40 this morning, about five hours from now) for the princely sum of $620 (including thmore eir f*cking $50 change fee), another flight at 9:30 that lands in Cincinnati, where I would wait for something like four hours (pretty much enough time to drive to Atlanta from Cincinnati), and that was it. So, I'm staying with my original flight, sleeping in tomorrow morning and taking my time getting to the airport. I have PLENTY of time to get to the airport.

I wandered around a little bit this evening, stopping at Best Buy for new earbuds, wandering aimlessly around Barnes and Noble for an hour or so, then coming back to the hotel in time for CSI: NY, which was really good this evening. I was going to pack, but got involved in one of those projects that has kept me up until now, so I'll just pack in the AM. Heaven knows I have plenty of time and I don't plan on leaving here until I have to (noon, as I recall).

Class, as it turns out, went well. I got much better ratings from this group than any of the prior groups I've trained, largely because no one got disgruntled about the software and decided to kill the messenger. In fact, I think the attitude of this group was better. Either that, or, because I can now spend more time on my feet, I spent more time walking around the room while they were doing exercises. I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth here.

I don't feel tired. I can't explain that.

Anyway, more later this AM.

I can. How much weight have you lost, John? You're carrying less of a load (you should pardon the expression) and your body is starting to notice.

Go, you!

I'm estimating that I've lost anywhere from 25-35 lbs. The last time I was at the doctor, I weighed in at 344, and it was the first time she could weigh me on her scale (one of those balance-beam jobs that goes as high as 350 lbs). I've been doing this for about 2 months now, so that sounds reasonable enough.

I was feeling like I had more energy and was able to focus better within a week of starting my cleanse back in January. The weight loss is part of that feeling better, I'm certain, as are the other benefits: I'm more alert and able to focus, I'm able to spend more time on my feet and remain more good humored throughout the day, etc.

Thanks for the encouraging words. I really do appreciate it.
