Yesterday was DH's and my 31st wedding anniversary. It was a good day... could have gone bad. I got a "congratulations" phone call from someone who is toxic to me and at first it seemed like a call that would go fine... but eventually words we... Read more

Today. I'm not sure what is different about today. But I over the past while I had been struggling to commit to eating less, eating clean and using all the tools at my disposal. I've been writing morning pages and going for walks. I have no... Read more

I need a moment. I need to stamp my feet and have a little whine about my weight. Argh! OK, that's done. Yup, still on this plateau. I have to remind myself that it is not really a plateau because it has been more like a bobble head. It is... Read more

An Ally between the covers

Thursday, July 09, 2015      8 comments

This week I am meant to use my journal to track food... when I eat and when I want to eat. The reasons, the circumstances, the emotions that begin the search to fill the void and the reaction to when I say no, or have to work at it or how I fee... Read more

Manure and seeds

Wednesday, July 08, 2015      8 comments

Do you ever feel tired of always having to do this? I started my meditation this morning wondering about the part of me that still feels negatively about myself... feels like a sham... feels like I just have not mastered this. I can stil... Read more

Frozen pie

This has to be quick... but I am working on learning to love. It means... wearing my heart on my sleeve and really being present. From the Course in weight loss... asking angels to be in my home, in my conversations, in my head... all the time... Read more

Writing diet ... first day of Morning Pages

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      6 comments

I'm going to cut and paste what I wrote on the team page: Wow! I'm proud of myself. The keyboard was not working so I replaced batteries and then changed keyboards. Not bad for technically challenged, lol. My writing this morning I ... Read more

Life of leisure?

Tuesday, June 30, 2015      11 comments

Today is my second day "on my own". I have a list of chores but am taking time to read between them and am thoroughly enjoying not having to keep to anyone's schedule, cook for anyone but myself, visit with neighbours and sleep on my own schedu... Read more

Compassion for myself

Thursday, June 25, 2015      10 comments

There is something amazing that happens when I help people. At least that is what I have found in OA and spark people and in my meditations and.. so many other places. I say things to them that I need to hear. I remember things I have forgott... Read more

A Ceremony

Tuesday, June 23, 2015      6 comments

Today was my ceremony. In Marianne Williamson's Course in Weight Loss she is big on ritual and ceremony. It means every chapter has homework. It took a little while to coordinate this one. Last night I tidied around where we would do the... Read more

Letting go of Anger

Thursday, June 18, 2015      12 comments

In my meditation today our readings were about feeling our feelings, letting go of emotions and using that new space to allow new things to grow. So it was not a surprise when I did my ten minutes of silence that I "went to work". I used ... Read more

One of the homework assignments in the Course for Weight Loss is to write down my thoughts and really pay attention. Perhaps in the past we were not listened to. OK, that is reality. I often was told "it doesn't matter what YOU think"... and ... Read more

Letting Go

My homework seems to be a lot about "letting go" and it is amazing to me 1. How afraid I am 2. How many tries I have to take at it 3. How ... Read more

Touch.... and labels

Friday, June 12, 2015      8 comments

This morning's meditation reading, the first one anyway, was pretty hard to figure out. However there was a line that said we need to stop and touch things. I think that the author was talking about slowing down to appreciate them. In our dis... Read more

Rewriting history

I am part of the Wiriting Diet Team and A Course In Weight Loss Team. This morning in meditation I found myself combining my "homework" with interesting results. I know for me I have lots of events in my life, people, experiences that have... Read more
