Apologies for late comment response  
Hey, folks: sorry I've been so quiet. Life's been a little excessively crazy, between more fun at work and the late discovery that the contractors who did the work on my house last year didn't obtain the necessary county permits first. I've been trying to resolve both things. On the plus side, I think I have a solid path forward to resolve the permit issues and get ALL the house questions resolved by early July, for no more than I had originally intended to spend. Helps that I'd held back the final payment to the original contractor pending the delivery of all appropriate paperwork, which was never forthcoming for reasons I now can understand all too well.

I'm going to be spending most of the next couple of weeks caring for my Mom (giving my sister, who does that full-time, a break) so I won't be online much, but I'm planning to spend part of my available online time slowly getting around to responding to comments on my past blog posts. So if you get a much-delayed comment response, don't be surprised!

And my best news: I've lost 20 pounds since 13 March, when I formally began my diet. Bravo for Nutrisystem, and for me! If I lose 31 more pounds, I'll reach the target weight I set as my goal at the beginning of the effort. If I get there and am happy with my health and appearance, I'll see if I can set that as my new maintenance weight.

Be cool if I could do that by the time the Vancouver con rolls around, hey? *grin*

I'm just really hoping that this one-year-long remodeling project finally ends after one year!

Nice to see you too, new friend!

Well done on losing all that weight - I admire your discipline!

Thank you; I've been learning a lot. Hopefully, the lessons will stick ... *grin*

Major YAY for the weight loss. I'm happy you found a partner (Nutrisystem) that works for you!

YIKES on the no permits! Did everything pass inspection ok?

Thanks! I won't know on the permit stuff until early July, but I have reason to believe everything will work out just fine. Fingers crossed! (Hard to type that way ... *grin*)

Congratulations on your Figure ReForming.

And enjoy your time with your mother.

I am enjoying my time. Best of all was Thursday night, when both my sisters were here. After we got Mom in bed (she has advanced Alzheimer's), the three of us sat outside in the warm, full moon night, drank sherry, and laughed a lot. Good times!

Looking forward to seeing you again in a couple months! Good job on the weight loss, keep it up! Sorry things have been so busy lately. Sometimes life is a little TOO interesting (ancient curse: "May you have an interesting life").

See you soon!

Thanks, and I'm looking forward to seeing you, too! I haven't had much chance to think about the Vancouver trip, but it's getting closer and becoming real ... :)

"Be cool if I could do that by the time the Vancouver con rolls around, hey?"

It'll be a piece of cake, sweetie. : ) I'm jealous.
bardicvoicebardicvoice on June 26th, 2010 06:58 pm (UTC)
I'm working at it pretty hard! There's no scale here at my sister's place, but judging by my belt, I'm still doing okay. We'll see what I find when I get back home again mid-week ... :)

Cool! Give us updates. : )

Congrats on winningy your building permit battles - contractors are tricky things - heck so are home sales

Its kind of you to give your Sister a break - I know when my mom was caring for my Grandmother she really needed one.

Good luck with the diet - I am dieting out in the internet ether with you. I have a lot farther to go though - lost 85 and need to lose anohter 65 - but I really really just want to loose another 15 by Vancon - more would be great of course but 15 - 15 would mean I was in triple digits baby

Sigh but I love to eat - I am doing the big JC

bardicvoicebardicvoice on June 26th, 2010 06:59 pm (UTC)
I wish you the best of luck and the strongest of willpower, Zaz! A triple-digit weight loss is nothing to sneeze at: we can hoist a toast of calorie-free water to each other in Van!
