So there I was...

...walking back to my building from hitting the ATM and getting a salad at the Post Oak Grill when I noticed the big sign at the end of the hallway just before you enter my building had changed. At some point in the not to distant past it had been changed from something promoting the El Paso volunteerism program called "Sharing Team El Paso" to a promotional display for our corporate wellness program called "Choose Well." In fact it was changed to this graphic:

Being the self-centered twit I am, I could not help but notice that center picture inset at the bottom. Here it is, enhanced for your viewing pleasure:

Mother of god. There I am.

Back in January had you told me by the end of the year I would be on some promotional material promoting a wellness and fitness program in any other capacity than "Don't be this fat fuck," I would have told you that you were clearly insane and have suspected that Rob and Scott were plotting something. Here we are a year later and I have gone from tubby bitch to this:

Yeah, I still don't get it either.

On this subject it has been some time since I posted about my diet and this seems as good a as time as any to mention that I have met my goal of loosing 100 pounds, actually 102 as of last Friday. It feels awesome to have actually accomplished this and I will admit that when I stepped off the scale on Friday I had to sit down and have a little bit of a cry.

Wow, you look incredible, James! You've been so quiet lately I've been wondering where you are. Glad to hear you're doing well!

Phenomenal achievement, James. You should be so proud of yourself - you did exactly what you set out to do and didn't let anything stop you. Pretty rare these days - colour me impressed.

James, that last picture of you in this post is freakin' unbelievable!! I've never seen you so thin, obviously, but also never quite so comfortable and confident looking.

Great job! So proud of you!

You could have been a poster boy for President-Elect Obama's campaign. You and that git from the Subway commercials. You would totally destroy him in a ninja fight by the way.
