Do you weigh more than 250 lbs? Well, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but you weigh more than a baby elephant! I had the (um) good fortune to chaperone 2 zoo field trips this with each of my girls' kindergarten class. Although the elephants have been moved off site until they rebuild a new habitat, the scale was there for the kids to see how many of them would it take to weigh the same as a baby elephant. It would take about 6 kindergartners. It takes 1 of me. It's kind of a shocker to know that you weigh more than a baby elephant.
So, why the new blog? Some people who I know in "real life" read my blog. I became uncomfortable with always sharing what I was actually feeling. Things would happen that I wanted to blog about but I couldn't, because I feared retribution or judgment from those who "know" me. Blogging is very freeing, but it wasn't happening when I worried about what others were thinking. And I felt that I couldn't post the big failures. So here I am again! I'm at 285 or so. AGAIN. But I have my first goal. To weigh less than a baby elephant. Here we go again.
