Day 6 of 100 Days - Protect your Program (at all Costs)
Friday, August 26, 2016      2 comments

In order to protect myself, I have to let some people know my situation. I am diabetic, and vocal about it; I have food allergies with new ones cropping up all the time, and am vocal about that; there are foods that I just don't like, but keep t... Read more
Day 5 of 100 - Magic Notebook
Thursday, August 25, 2016      3 comments

I don't journal, per se, posting here (or in the Daily Minder) is it. I'd like to have a Magic Notebook, but the way Linda is using it works just as well in my head. Except when I'm in the throws of a binge [different story, folks]). In my head,... Read more
Day 4 of 100 I Prefer my Boundaries to be Electrified
Wednesday, August 24, 2016      1 comments

Picture notebook paper with a vertical line down the center; left-hand column is entitled Narrow Road; right-hand column is Wider Road. I've written 1100 calories on the Narrow Road, and 1250 on the Wider Road Ive written 6000 steps on the ... Read more
Day 3 of 100: No Matter What (Today is Aug 23, not 22)
Monday, August 22, 2016      7 comments

I need to get this off my chest. Three weeks ago, I was having lunch with friends. The very first bite paralyzed my vocal chords and brought on a coughing fit. I drank copious amounts of iced de-caffe which fairly quickly brought everything back... Read more
I Used to be...
Monday, August 22, 2016      8 comments

I used to be arrogant about being in control about my diabetes, and thought I was in control, but now I don't because I've faced reality and admit that I am out of control. I used to eat out of loneliness, and now I don't because I no longer b... Read more
A Most Glorious Day
Saturday, July 02, 2016      7 comments

July began where June ended - typical June Gloom. Once the fireworks of the Fourth were over, all that changed and the weather has been perfect; so I, of course, had the carpets cleaned. Now the inside is just as bright and beautiful as the outs... Read more
Change can be a Good Thing
Saturday, June 18, 2016      5 comments

I am going through another change -- perhaps the final change? Since this is my first time around, I don't know how many changes (other) people go through in a lifetime, so I don't know what to expect. This change is a kind of acceptance of thos... Read more

I was in the middle of writing what I believed to be a good blog, then I hit a wrong key........ Read more
Today I am the Windshield
Tuesday, January 12, 2016      2 comments

For sure, I am a changed person. I'd rather be Bat-Man, though. 8-) All those good habits I learned before are coming back, and I am looking forward to losing pounds, getting more exercise, and eating right-er! Dh is right on track, his body i... Read more
Decisions, decisions, decisions
Saturday, January 02, 2016      4 comments

Don't know where that line came from, but I'm using it now. Last year was the worst, and I'm trying to decide if I should shut MoomShine down, and become born again as who-knows-who. I'm not putting in writing how many pounds I've re-gained bec... Read more
Today I am the Moth
Wednesday, October 07, 2015      3 comments

I don't do change well, and today I learned I'm about to make another major in my life (this sounds awfully melodramatic even to me); after 13 years, my Potters Group is about to disband, and I know of no thing else to do with my life. Thirteen ... Read more
The End of the Line
Saturday, September 26, 2015      1 comments

Final Step: #7. Create your plan of action My observation? Not motivational. Not thought through. Began with a sketchy suggestion and ended with a sketchy suggestion; i.e., Will you follow a structured food plan, or just slowly work healt... Read more
Step 6: Set up Your Environment for Success
Friday, September 25, 2015      2 comments

I almost didn't read this because I've always been a health-food nut, so my immediate environment is clean. Then I read it, and it still doesn't apply, but it was worth reading because I had to do a whole lot of thinking about my particular sit... Read more
STEP 5: Build a Support Team
Thursday, September 24, 2015      2 comments

You have to know a lot of people to do this, or join a support group. Your close friends and family group are, in all likelihood, full of saboteurs, and you are not going to change these people. As for building a team? I was surprised by who is ... Read more
