I got an e-mail at work today about a "webinar" - even if I was interested, I would refuse to do it just on principle, because that term is an abomination. And HP should know better.

Huh. Maybe I shouldn't be worrying about my weight so much after all.

I don't really mean that. By the definitions they are using in that article, I am obese rather than just overweight. Hell, I'd be happy just to be at the bottom end of obese. I am not worrying about getting to "normal" at all. And my reasons for wanting to lose weight have more to do with other considerations than with diabetes and heart disease, at this point, anyway. Speaking of which, I did gain a little weight this week, as I predicted - but only a little. Not even half a pound. I'm still holding steady at 13 pounds lost, which is fine.

I woke up in the middle of the night last night and cropped and labeled more quilt pictures, and posted them earlier tonight. So that's another category down. Still lots to go. Instead of working on that more, though, I played GuildWars. I ran my necromancer Lily around Kurzick territory, to be specific.

Here, I guess my gratuitous picture of the day can be Guildwars: Lily in her rather-revealing new armor. And her Wicked Hat, of course.

I'm really happy about the research that's been coming out about the weight stuff. My doctor and I agree that it would be great if I lost some weight, but it's more because it would be easier to lose at 36 than if I wait ten years. And she's perfectly happy if I'm still "overweight" by BMI standards; my lab tests are all good.

O hai -- can you link me back to your post about the neckwarmer thingy? I saw some yarn today (cashmere! a little tweedy!) that I think would be perfect for it, and like I said, I'd be happy to knit it for you. The yarn cost would be $40 (or $20, if I misremember how long the scarf-ish thing was -- two skeins would definitely do it, and one might be enough).

Cool! I found it, it's here. Just let me know how much the yarn will be & I'll send you the money.

It's interesting that they only looked at it in terms of morbidity. People with diabetes may live a long time, but often there are other serious complications from the disease - amputations, neuropathy (nerve pain in the arms and legs that gets progressively worse), kidney disesae and/or failure, etc. Many people live with those things, which can (and often do) negatively affect quality of life, but live to be a ripe old age. *shrug*

I should start playing GW again. I never finished Nighfall - my group had kind of dwindled, and I had gotten bored. It was a shame, too, because GW:N was the best of the three at that point. I haven't tried the new one.

Quality of life issues is exactly why I'd doing Weight Watchers now - and expect to be doing it for the foreseeable future. Specifically, I've had pretty severe hip and lower-back pain sporadically that seems to be threatening to become chronic. I started feeling like I was looking at becoming one of those women riding around the quilt show in a wheelchair, if I didn't do something about it.

I never finished Nightfall either, actually - I've got a paragon at Gate of Madness and a dervish at Gate of Pain, so they're both pretty close to being finished, if I'd just get around to doing it. I tend to play too many characters, so nobody ever finishes much of anything. (I did finish Factions with two characters, actually, but then Factions is relatively short.) Our guild - actually an alliance of several guilds - is dwindling too but since it was huge to begin with, there are still people around. Lemme know if you decide to play!

My favorite toon is a Mesmer/Necro (domination/curses). I have several characters across two accounts (three if I gank my hubby's, as he no longer plays and quit waaaay before I did). I still tended to play my Me/N and my R/Me the most. I may just jump back in - what's your primary toon's name? My Mesmer is Kydos Kinneman, and the ranger is Kyardia Kinneman. Feel free to add me to your FL. :D

My main (so-called, anyway) is Rima Tehanu - all my characters are on one account and all but a couple have Tehanu as a last name. I say so-called because Rima (who's an ele) doesn't seem to get nearly the most playing time these days. I have at least one of every profession but I have been playing my necro and my dervish the most lately. And sometimes my baby monk, who's now in Kryta. Give me a yell - I've got characters at all kinds of stages, as you may have figured out!

I have a necro that's in Kryta...
