1/24/10 I AM NORMAL!

I know, I know, you were hoping thinking you were NEVER going to have to call me 'normal'. Goal Limbo was toying with me again and dragging that 1/2 pound out forever...but it's FINALLY happened!!! Yes, Yes, my dear friends, I've finally got a title I can be proud of...NO MORE Obese (very close to Morbidly Obese)...NO MORE Overweight...I'M NORMAL!!!! I know it doesn't look like what you would have ever described maybe to the police sketch artist, but get out your Webster's folks...LOOK CLOSELY!...There's my pic...right next to the word 'Normal'.

Main Entry: 1nor·mal
Pronunciation: \ˈnȯr-məl\
Function: adjective or noun
Etymology: Latin normalis, from norma
Date: circa 1696



-- of, relating to, or characterized by average intelligence or development b : free from mental disorder : sane

NO, NO, NO...I'll NEVER get anyone to believe I'm sane...further down, further down..

-- a form or state regarded as the norm : standard
being approximately average or within certain limits in e.g. development; "a perfectly normal child"; "the most normal person I've ever met"; "of normal size or shape"

That's me...the most normal person you've ever met of normal size or shape!

I think I'm going to get it tattooed on my forehead because no one I know will ever believe me. Now, do I get a certificate or something in the mail? Where's my trophy? Hmmm...I already gave away my tiara...maybe I need a whole crown...is there a coronation or a ceremony of some kind? Maybe a parade down Main Street in Bandlandia? Will they erect a statue of me in the town square? Do I get to stand next to the Mayor and cut the tubing (on the giant ceremonial LB, of course) and have him give me the key (to the fill syringe cabinet, of course...the line forms here friends...) and then he'll declare this the official 'BG is NORMAL!' day? Oooo...now there's a thought...

I know, I know...hee-hee...I'll make all those 'friends' of mine who think I'm ABNORMAL call me 'NORMAL' for a day! Come on, fess up...I know who you are and where you live...humor me let me hear it...after all...I AM NORMAL!

Well, I'm IN with the IN crowd now!!! But still no picture maybe I need to make it smaller. LOL Anyway thanks for the mail love you GF. I got on the phone again to create my own destiny. The Dr.'s office cancelled my Feb 22 apt. Nice, Well now I have an appointment with the Nutritionist and the Dr. for a fill maybe if I need one. New date is March 10 and the appointments are back to back that will be nice. I just have a few food questions now that I need more choices. I am loving the NORMAL thing you've got going. I hope I will be there soon. Best wishes

BG, all hail to the Queen! Your photo is sooo lovely..both of them, but you look so, uh..well NORMAL in them! Yeah for you! Yep I'm jumping on with the rest in hopes that I'll be normal one day too. I thought you had a necklace with an "E" on it and wondered...what is that for, then I realized it's a Key...to all the Land! Keep up the great work!
