Big Girls Don't Cry
...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
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
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
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
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
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
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

Not a Blog, But a Note
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
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
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
