Awards and Apologies

Several people have given me awards over the last couple of months and I've been so self-absorbed with my addled brain that I haven't recognized them on my blog.  To everyone who gave me one, I sincerely apologize for that.  All of them have felt undeserving, but are still very much appreciated.  I tried to stop by the blogs of the people who gave them to me and thank them,  but if I missed you, please forgive me, and thanks to everyone who thought of me. 

Allan at Almost Gastric Bypass gave me an award tonight, and since I'm sitting at the computer and feeling a little less mentally sidetracked today, I'm going to post it.  Thank God there aren't any rules attached to it, lol.

I just ran across Allan about a month or so ago after he left a comment on my blog.  I really, really like him.  He has a no-nonsense approach to weight loss and it's basically this:  Just do it.  He treats it as a disease as serious as the cancer that his wife had 9 years ago.  She went for a check up today, and praise God, it looks like she's still 9 years cancer-free.  Allan is in NYC and has the language to match, lol.  He sugar coats nothing and I love him for that.  He posts several times a day.  He's dedicated and committed to improving his health and his eating lifestyle.  He inspires me every single day.

Thank you Allan for this award and for being one of my biggest cheerleaders.  I love that you believe in me.  I believe in you, too.  :)
