I really, really have to send a huge thanks to 4-A-HEALTHY-BMI. I want her to know how much she's helped me modify my thinking in the past few days. I saw a comment she wrote on someone else's blog that some consider keeping even 10% of yo... Read more

Thanks to my aching foot and knee

Saturday, October 11, 2014      8 comments

In July of 2013, I weighed 172, down from a high of 245, just three pounds from exiting the "obese" column. Over the next year, I steadily inched my way back to 200, crossing that dreaded line in August. I was mired in self-loathing, weighing ... Read more

Friday, September 05, 2014      3 comments

I've had two really lovely desserts this week. Delicious unexpected treats that did not break the caloric bank. 1.5 oz burrata cheese (would also work with a nice fresh mozzarella) 1 white peach, diced (deliciously in season right now!) ... Read more

"Life is NOT a dress rehearsal."

Thursday, September 04, 2014      7 comments

This morning I awoke with an aphorism rolling about in my head: "Life is NOT a dress rehearsal." I'm not sure where this phrase came from but I'm sure of it's meaning: You only get one shot in life. This is your only chance, so make it count. ... Read more

Appetite + Exercise

Wednesday, September 03, 2014      8 comments

I brought an enormous quantity of healthy snacks with me to work today to help me combat the ravenous hunger that has been plaguing me. Strangely, I find that I am half as hungry today as I usually am. Possible interpretations: 1) I've be... Read more

Say it one more time with feeling

Tuesday, September 02, 2014      7 comments

Say it one more time with feeling: "You can't outrun your fork!" This weekend was an excellent example of this phenomena for me, as I was more active than I have been in the last year! On Saturday morning, I took my regular dance class (Sh... Read more
