Best said PT!  

These days I am sharing my weight loss story with people who take the initiative to ask me.

Oh, speaking of which:  I got a lot of positive feedback regarding my little piece in our organization's in-house newsletter.  We have...what are we up to now...I think it is about 1,200 or so employees, but it could be more at this point, I lost count a few mergers ago...and we're about to undergo The Big One, merger-wise, within the next year.  EEENYHOOO:  lots of folks see this newsletter, from Tallahassee to Pensacola to Tampa Bay, and I have had emails from folks I don't even know, saying that it helped them, as well as lots of people here at HQ coming into my cubicle and saying "Your article was really good!", even before I knew it was out.

Of course, it was EDITED to a maddening degree, including that the title was totally changed, sentences and paragraphs were moved totally around, taken out, and words replaced that seem little, like "this" to "the", in one case, but that "the" made the sentence sound like a cheap infomercial instead of how "this" would have sounded.  I HATE being edited.  I don't take it well.  It is probably good for me, but I hate it.  ANYWAY:  here is my fave email I received (I took out the name to protect privacy), from a nice fellow right here at my location of the organization:

"HI Edna,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences in the T.E.A.M. Pulse newsletter. I found the column to be a very inspirational story with a lot of good advice. I am going to share the article with my wife, (name removed). I am sure everyone who reads the article will come away with some useful information.

Have a great weekend."

Yay!  WINNING!  If each of us in this community could help/inspire just ONE person in our lives, think how many people we could help!

Oh, stand back:  I think I just did something really high-tech.  I just copied the image of just one part of a page of the .pdf of our company newsletter, to paste here, on account of we can no longer save anything (or is the word upload?) to image hosting sites, we can no longer save documents to Google docs, there is a whole long list of what we can no longer do, trust me, but I'm thinking, if I paste this image here and put the image codes around it, maybe it will appear?  If so, be warned that it was edited mightily and NOT in ways I approve of.  The title was changed, the text order moved all around, and the word "this" was changed to "the when I talk at the beginning about "this key to success" that I wanted to share.  I wouldn't be so arrogant and/or cheesy as to say that I wanted to share "the key to success", that sounds like a tacky infomercial!  ANYWAY, here is the article (I hope), as it appeared in our newsletter.  I didn't take the whole page, as other employees are mentioned in other things, so I wanted to protect their privacy.  Okay, here goes nothing!  Ta da:

....Yeeeeah, that didn't work.  WARDROBE!  I can't work like this!

Can't wait to get my computer in July!  When I get a new phone, I'm getting a computer, too, at Radioshack.  Oh yeah I am.  This is 2011, I'm finally getting into 1986, baby!  Don't even try to stop me.  It's either gonna be a laptop or maybe a "netbook" or maybe some sort of faux computer that is secretly really an extension of your phone but with a full keyboard and monitor, although I'm not sure I'm into that idea, as I can't stand the "mobile web".  I need the FULL web.  That is one of many things I appreciate about the way Dr. D has this site set up, btw.  It is one of the more user-friendly sites if you are accessing it from a stooooooo-pit mobile phone.  Anyway, I can't like the little column.  I will try to just capture the text somehow, but I don't think it will let me cut and paste anything.  *rolling eyes*.

Drat, foiled again!

edited:  wait a hair!  It allowed me (I think!) to copy the text, not as an "image", just the text.  Here it is and, I remind you again, this was mightily EDITED by the power (singular--one very nice woman who is in charge of Education and Training, and thus this newsletter, which somehow falls under that purview) that be (WARDROBE!).  The title, not of my choosing/writing, is "Striving for Wellness", which she told me later is what she is calling the column every time now, not just what she put in there as the title of mine.  Anyway, without further adeiu, here's how it appeared in our company-wide internal newsletter--I got my plug in for the BTD and GTD, wu HUUUUUU!  I had to, for without them, my story could not be accurately told.  They are the wind beneath my wings  :

"“I struggled with weight my entire adult life, yo-yoing for years and mostly remaining quite heavy. What I’d like to share with others who
struggle with weight is the key to ultimate success: stick-to-itiveness! Never give up and, whatever you do, even if you lose and then gain all
the weight back plus more, don’t look at it as a “failure.” Instead, try to see it for what it really is: a learning experience! I have learned at
least as much about what works for me and what doesn’t in terms of diet from my ‘failures’ as from my successes. So, no matter how much
you may be struggling, don’t despair, because you could be just a few dietary “tweaks” from it all coming together and working for you. I was
238 lbs at my heaviest and remained there for a few years. I despaired, as I lost weight and then gained it all back plus more. It seemed to
take a very focused, disciplined effort and lots of time for me to lose weight, but two seconds for me to gain it all back.
Finally, in 2008, I found the GenoType Diet, written by Peter D’Adamo, who wrote The Blood Type Diet back in the late ‘90’s. He expands on his theory from that time, taking
even more individual factors into account in order to customize a diet that is in sync with your particular genetic hardwiring. As it turns out, I am one of the “thrifty genotypes”,
which means I’ve got genetic hardwiring that predisposes me to hold onto any and all fat, just in case a famine is around the corner. Balance is the key for me, and I’ve now
learned to eat in a way that keeps my brain chemistry balanced, steady and free of the cravings that once ruled my eating behavior. For me, I eat enough protein throughout
the day, avoid specific foods like wheat and corn that aren’t good for my “Gatherer” genotype, eat foods that are best for my type, and avoid all ‘junk’ ingredients. That’s it!
It’s as simple—and challenging—as that. I’ve also learned that exercise is key for me, and I try to walk at least half an hour every day, an hour if I possibly can. I’ve lost 83
lbs and hope to lose another lucky 7. It took me years of trial and error to learn what works and what doesn’t work for me, but now that I’ve got it, by George, I think I’ve really
got it!. I understand that I will always have to work at it and be careful, mindful and intentional about my diet and exercise, but I’m so grateful to have the knowledge, tools
and experience that I have now. Something very important to keep in mind is that the right diet should make you feel GOOD. If you feel like you are starving, deprived and/or
ruled by cravings, you are on the wrong diet for you. Keep experimenting until you find one that is a joy to follow and makes you feel revitalized and in balance. My parting
words to anyone struggling with obesity are: If I can lose the weight and keep it off, anyone can.”"

Sounds vunderbar!  I CANNOT stand Thing One about my current job, other than the paycheck and benefits...and those two are why I have SOMEHOW withstood all the rest.  It's amazing how one (I) will allow one's spirit to be systematically, outrageously and overtly crushed all in order to pay the bills, ain't it?  Weird.  Wild.  Wacky.
