Well, on the last leg of my journey home I got stranded in Memphis.  I missed my  connecting flight to Pittsburgh so I was put up in one of the dingiest Holiday Inn's that I have ever experienced.  I was tired, sick, and without my luggage got to spend the night in an icky hotel room at the end of a long darkened hallway.  I thought I would take a shower, that maybe it would make me feel better, and it did until I got out of the shower and happened to catch a glimpse of myself in the full length mirror.  Yikes, I now know why the only full length mirror that I have isn't in my bathroom.  I was repulsed by what I saw.  I have been telling myself that I was going to get back on track, weight wise but this really DID it.  When was the last time that you have checked yourself out that way. To be honest it has been years for me.  Why can't I have a normal bad habit like most people, chewwing fingernails, picking my nose in public, smoking, drinking, or I know ,be a compulive over achiever or clean freak.  Why do I love food.
