I was able to do some fun and new things and make new friends this week. The first was humbling because I have lost all this weight, yet a full-grown and healthy horse couldn’t drag me…whatever. Check out the video below for the horse’s attempt. (The action starts at about two minutes into the video.)

Anyway, I also played in the Swing For Life charity golf tournament with some of my high school mates. They play golf, and good thing too because I stunk up the joint. It was fun and for a good cause though, and that's the important thing.

Sia Figel is an award-winning international novelist and activist. I had the privilege of meeting her at a Pacific Island cultural conference my kids were attending. She too is on a weight loss journey because of diabetes and is down 120 pounds. Her saying is, "I have diabetes, but it doesn't have me."

I look to continue this ongoing battle of the bulge, and I understand that I may take one step back, so long as I then take three steps forward. Thanks for the continued support, and be sure to follow my progress here.
