RE: Re: [OT] South Beach Diet

I'm with Jesse.  And it seems that you find a soul mate when and where you
least expect it, usually when you've decided to "move on" and not worry
about it any more.  Work on what you enjoy.  Enjoy time doing things you
love (but not just at home, of course) and let nature take its course.
After all, DH's grandfather didn't marry his grandmother until after DH and
I got married.  At the wedding, my sister-in-law gave them "booties" and
insinuated it was a "have to...shotgun" wedding.  Grandpa thought that was
great!  It is NEVER to late for something wonderful to happen.

You are valuable with or without a mate.  (Ask all my DH's old maid aunts.
They were all business women in the 30's and didn't want to be saddled with
a relationship that would prevent them from achieving their career goals!
LOL!  They did alright by themselves.) 

Jesse, Congratulate Natalie!  I know it isn't easy, but it does wonders for
one's self esteem.

Chris...you never, EVER know what is around the corner in your life. You
just need to take care of yourself....FOR yourself, not for anybody else.
There are lots of people who are married and surrounded by people all the
time, but still feel lonely. Maybe you need to dig down in your soul and
find some peace from within. I know that WE ALL LOVE YOU on this list.

Catching up on email here...

Three years ago I had lost a whole bunch of weight (about 80 pounds) and was
pretty close to my target weight. For me, the best way was Atkins. I don't
believe in Atkins as a lifestyle, but more as a quick results/motivator.
Within one month of doing Atkins I was down by about 30 pounds. At that
point I was hyped enough that I was more willing to eat healthy and exercise
wasn't nearly as painful.

Unfortunately, I lost weight for the wrong reason -- I wanted to meet
someone. What I learned is that losing weight just makes you thin and lonely
instead of fat and lonely. I've gained some of it back and probably could
lose it again, but I don't really have a motivational reason. I mean, do I
want to lose weight so that I can live a longer, lonely life? Gee, that
sounds like fun. :)
