    I was travelling towards the end of last week and the beginning of this one. I enjoyed myself immensely at the stitchy weekend with the ladies. I ate well, didn't over do it, but I can't seem to shake the feeling of tiredness that accompanies travelling. I've been home 3 days and I STILL am exhau... Read more

  • Regrets- I have a few

    8/13/2014 11:39:52 PM, by CHARTHESTAR

    Regrets I have a few. I think most of us have some. I donít have many and the ones I do have are for things I did not do rather than for things I have done. Personally I have two: 1. Not keeping my weight off the first time I took it off. And not keeping off the little I did take off after th... Read more

    8/13/2014 10:04:48 AM, by JENSTRESS

    It is funny. I read a blog entry the other day about how SP could be keeping people fat by teaching acceptance of size. I don't agree, but I did like the point. I think ANYONE can make anything fit into what they believe. Which is why I thought of this when I was working out this morning. E... Read more

    8/13/2014 7:40:06 AM, by WAYSOFGRACE

    I have been very quiet in my blogging recently. I've been house hunting, and I took a 5 day trip back north to have a weekend with my lady friends doing nothing but relaxing, cross stitching (we're all stitchers) and just generally trying to get back to a sense of normalcy. It was what I needed. ... Read more

THis doesn't always work, as sometimes I'm not really hungry for breakfast. So I still eat it. I also try to quit eating when I am satisfied, not full, but satisfie... Read more
