Big Girls Don't Cry

Sunday, July 26, 2015      9 comments

...and that could be at the core of why I'm a big girl, and unhappy about it. I know I'm an emotional eater. I read everything I can about the whys, wherefores, and hows to put a stop to this. For some reason, though, (maybe I'm not seeing what'... Read more

Time for a New Posting

Sunday, March 01, 2015      9 comments

I stopped losing weight on April first 2014. For the past 11 months, I've been up and down 7 pounds, and I am tired of being on this silly routine. I am a master at wishful thinking, so at great risk I am posting this: I think my adjusted atti... Read more

Cannot Believe I Said That

Sunday, July 13, 2014      8 comments

I am hating this day: Just 7 short days ago i weighed 4 lbs less than I do today, and I was so hopeful that I was back on the losing streak. Two days later the scale showed a gain, then another gain, and now today it's another gain. I can't figu... Read more

I lose because I track; therefore, I win

Tuesday, July 01, 2014      4 comments

Well. That's not entirely correct. In order to lose, I must eat less and/or exercise more, first, but I do like to think that tracking alone will make me lose. The past three months were difficult, but are behind me. It's time to cleanse the ... Read more

Worst Case of Easter Basket Pig-out I've Ever Experienced

Saturday, May 10, 2014      5 comments

I think I am fully recuperated, at last. My last blog is visible as I'm writing this, and in that one, I'm complaining about being 156lbs and having completed a 1200-cal binge. I've no clue how many calories I ingested this past week, but I did ... Read more

Soft and Fluffy

Sunday, March 02, 2014      5 comments

Yup. I was a skinny kid, and mom was always on my case about my weight. When I was 14 she told me that grandmothers need to be soft and fluffy. I retorted that soft and fluffy was not what I wanted to be. I vowed I would never be a soft and fl... Read more

Thoughts on the Cottonwood

Saturday, February 08, 2014      7 comments

I fell in love with the cottonwood and JR almost simultaneously. The two years we spent together ended rather abruptly, and very painfully. I Still miss the cottonwood, but there are others and I am still in love with them all - JR -- not so muc... Read more

Happy New Year!

Wednesday, January 01, 2014      6 comments

These are the questions and my responses posted on the Spark Team 2014 Winter 5% Challenge Community message board. I love any and all challenges (winning may not be everything, but it sure is fun)! What do you want to change? 1. Make exerci... Read more

Not a Blog, But a Note

Monday, December 30, 2013      9 comments

The holidays are over, but I am not sad. I had a great time. dh is still complaining, though, and will continue until next visit. My dd's life is a mess, but I have finally realised that it's her mess, and not mine. Once more, I've come down wi... Read more

Reality Check

Friday, November 15, 2013      7 comments

I grew up beneath the approach path of a major airport, and I learned to identify various aircraft by the whine of their engines (among other identifiers). The last airplane I'd learned to identify was the Boing 767. When those planes were comin... Read more

Everything is So Easy

Saturday, June 29, 2013      8 comments

Yesterday, long story short, I was hurt, angry, and hypoglycemic, and ate a bag of wheat thins--it was that easy. When I came to my senses, I realised I haven't been hypoglycemic since I began this journey in February, so I didn't believe I need... Read more
