If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.

Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

What a Day!!

I felt like something different for breakfast, so I made eggwhites with a peach and a milk/vitamin chaser.

Lunch was my chicken sammy with avocado. Man, I cannot ever see myself getting sick of these!

Just after lunch, my son calls in a flap. Transformers 2 is out. We must go!! He's an absolute Transformers NUT. It's great going to the movie with him, because you can lean over and out the side of your mouth go "huh?" and he can tell you the back story why what is happening is happening, or who that is. And the excitement when the characters come on the screen... it eminates from him. It's an AWESOME experience. So a double date was on!

However, I had also planned a date to walk with Erica. Had to time things carefully.

Home snack was 1/2 apple, 1/4 cup yogurt, 1/4 cup granola, and a tablespoon of chocolate chips.

So out I went to Burnaby at 2pm. Traffic was great, and I got there too early and sat in my car for 45 minutes waiting for her to come home. I took the opportunity to eat a Key Lime Pie Larabar while I waited. Very enjoyable.

We loaded up the dog in the car, and off we went to Burnaby Lake. I've never been there, so Erica showed me the way (she is a master navigator, lemme tell ya! You WANT this girl giving you directions!)

This was my first idea of how wonderful this walk was going to be:

How beautiful is that???

This is the lake from the first bridge. It was breathtaking.

Dixie was soooo glad to be there! We saw her in this position, or the standing waiting for us to HURRY UP!! lol

Lily pads, as far as the eye can see.

Just amazing... and the smell? So clean. It was raining, so it was just awesome.

Dixie actually stood still (at mummy's command) long enough for me to snap a pic of her.

After dropping Dixie and Erica off, I ended up stuck in traffic from 4:30 to 6pm, and STILL didn't get home in time. I ended up just phoning home and telling them to meet me at the theatre, since I was there already and wouldn't make it home in time. However, I was soaked and sweaty and gross. So I went into Superstore and bought a bra off the clearance rack and an $8 shirt. Still wearing my cut off sweatpants and runners, with my hair slicked back in a greasy sweaty pony... nice.

But the movie was fanTAStic, which made up for me being in the slowest line EVER to get popcorn. Why is it that it's always the line I choose that moves slowest? Why? Usually I have a sense of humour about it, but after spending all that time in traffic, I was not feeling the humour. I was PISSED.

Since I had scarfed an entire 12 inch cold cut combo from Subway for dinner, I decided to indulge in some popcorn. This time the skinny bitch inside me won! That was a total first!! I had planned on a regular popcorn and a drink, but when I got up to the counter I opened my mouth and out came "kids combo". Nice!!! Who the hell said that?? Pat her on the back!!

Oh, and I took a pic of this store because it made me giggle. I'm jeuvenile that way. *shrug*

LMAO, I loved reading about us, aren't I the limelight lover, hahahaha! Seriously, I had a great time, although it didn't seem long enough to get it all in, lol!
I know that market! It's just before the street (Robinson) that you'd turn left on to get to the Bby Mtn trail access and parking.
That we must do soon,you will love it!!!
Btw, you have the best sense of humor, thanks for the laugh. I think the freeway may still be better in heavey traffic, maybe try that next time.
Sorry you were so late, I didn't know till I got home that you were leaving early...AND that you had to wait! sorry...
Well, off to the dress fitting!
Wish me luck...

I know... it seemed like the time flashed by, and we barely got to talk. What does that say about us that an hour of jabbering isn't enough. Hmmm. *giggle*

Freeway would DEF have been better. Grrrr.
