Two mice fell into a bucket of cream

If you saw the movie "Catch Me If You Can," you know the rest of the tale. If not, keep reading:

The first mouse tired quickly, gave up and drowned. The second mouse kept swimming. She swam so fast and so hard to keep afloat, her efforts churned that cream into butter and she was able to climb up on the butter and walk out of the bucket. 

I am that second mouse. 

This is my keeping the pounds off status update for the day. I am still treading in what seems to be a sea of cream - but I plan to make that cream into butter and get out of the bucket so I do not I sink and drown. 

Of course, as a compulsive eater and food addict, I will also have to fight the urge to eat the butter and fall into the whey. That would certainly be a sad whey to go. . . .

nothing like a little addict humor to brighten things up! Whey to go!
Sorry, I couldn't help it. I'm praying for you, as always.

I know that you have taken a turn to happy when you make wise with the puns.

When you get tired from swimming, you know you can tread cream. Then when you get your second wind you power forward.

I saw that movie but did not remember the story. Love it. Glad you're keeping things in perspective.

I read your blog from time to time and admire your strength. Having kept off the ponds through the death of my dad and failing health of my mom I know it ain't easy. Keep churning. If you eat just a little butter along the whey you are still strong enough to climb out.
