In the middle of last week I reached Onderland which I celebrated with that picture post. I lost another pound by the weekend and was feeling a little more secure in Onderland the further I got away from the 200 mark. Then I got some news last Sunday that sent me into a week long tailspin. It's family news so I won't go into it just yet but it's not good. (nobody's dying, it just sucks for the selfish part of me) I'm sure I'll eventually be able to talk about it but I always feel the anxiety of someone accidentally coming across this blog. Anyhow, I got the news Sunday morning, promptly jumped in the shower to cry, then got ready and went about my day. However fast food, became a big part of that day and the rest of the week. Ouch. I could already see Onderland slipping away and I didn't really care. I was relieve to wake up Monday morning and see 199.6 again. I was so happy that I didn't go over 200 again. However, this whole last week has been untracked and speckled with fast food and lunches out. Enough with the sad stuff, let's get to the good stuff.

The final happy thing -- I had been thinking about getting another cat for George Catstanza aka Georgie Boy for a while now. About a week and a half ago there was a couple of cats on the cover of our local newspaper with an article about how many pets the humane society had to euthanize over the past year. All week, I was looking at online ads and answered a couple but didn't hear back. So once I had my car back, I grabbed my kennel and headed to the humane society. I wasn't sure I would come home with one but figured I'd take the kennel just in case. I held and played with lots of cats and kept walking right past one cat named Sophie because she was 13. She was so quiet and she looked like a kitten so I asked about her. She was owner-surrendered to the humane society almost two months before and was likely going to be put down. She was already marked down to $40. I held her for a little and then took her into one of the little rooms to play by ourselves and I decided I must take her. So meet Sophie!!
