  • Eighteen Characteristics You Don't Want to See in a Person Seeking the Highest Office in the Land:

    5/21/2016 6:04:05 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    Name caking that more aptly describes the name caller rather than the person he has castigated. Muddying up the issues instead of contributing to their clarification. Using tired mantras to obfuscate the issues. Using phony excuses and lies to hide sharing of information about the candidat... Read more

  • Why do I feel hungrier?

    5/19/2016 4:41:23 PM, by VELVETDRAGONFLY

    Before I started to make changes, I would not eat breakfast or lunch every day. I would only eat dinner, but it would be fast food and a large portion. Now I eat a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. I am consuming more food than before, so why do I feel hungrier now? I even drink mo... Read more

  • Part three of Mother's Day 2016.

    5/17/2016 2:23:29 PM, by GINIEMIE

    I finally got my gift from Erik this Sunday. He was feeling better, and wanted to go out. We hit Applebee's and then went to Lowe's where he bought me two double knock out roses. The delay was due to issues following his two seizures Tuesday, the second sending him to ER. His neurologist never came... Read more

  • Snacking

    5/17/2016 9:23:58 AM, by VELVETDRAGONFLY

    This weekend I made up single serving sized snack bags for me and the family. Baby carrots, celery, grapes, and apples. I also made preportioned dipping cups of peanut butter and ranch dressing. They are easy to grab for lunches and snacks. I have some mangoes I will be cutting up next. Now ... Read more

  • The new data that comes out on weight loss is always full of such certainty.

    5/14/2016 5:35:30 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    A recent large scale study showed that weight loss with any staying power is nearly impossible. And it essentially said don't waste your time on weight loss, because you practically can't be successful. I wrote a blog about that putting to rest all of my weight loss efforts. I threw in the towel. Ho... Read more

  • Remember that annoying presidential candidate I was avoiding?

    5/13/2016 1:35:27 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    Well, I"M BACK. I realized to a very strong extent that if you ignore annoying (and might I add dangerous) political candidates, they might just sneak into office. It is important to keep fighting them even if is only through online comments and discussion. You really can't afford to close your eye... Read more

  • Mother's Day Week 2016

    5/13/2016 7:57:30 AM, by GINIEMIE

    Well from Friday to Sunday was great. On Monday, Erik had to have blood work for his physical that was scheduled for yesterday. And his caregiver had to go for a second mammogram and to see the doctor about the results. She had planned on taking Erik to transitional therapy but due to the cir... Read more

  • There is a certain political candidate...

    5/12/2016 9:03:59 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    the most insulting one we have ever had, who is so annoying that I just want to outright avoid him. Yet the only way I can is by avoiding the news. Boycotting him would mean boycotting the news entirely. That's the only way I can see of staying away from this person. So for today, I will spend no ... Read more

  • Mother's Day 2016

    5/12/2016 6:42:47 PM, by GINIEMIE

    Mother's Day for me is bittersweet. Two of my children live about an hour away and sometimes I don't hear from them on Mother's day or I get a text or a call (which I can't take in church) during Mass. This year I made up my mind I was not going to be hurt by what I perceive as negligence towards th... Read more

  • AHHH! THe Reclusive Life!

    5/10/2016 4:02:35 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    I just read a blog about the reclusive life. It is something I aspired to in my twenties. I wanted to do next to nothing and have very little contact with anyone. It led to disaster for me. It took quite a while to patch my life back up. Now I've had a career, a good life with my wife and p... Read more

  • Saturday outing with my family.

    5/8/2016 10:08:35 AM, by VELVETDRAGONFLY

    My Dr put me on an inhaler for my asthma and now I don't feel out of breath any more. I went rollerblading with my family yesterday. I was afraid I would fall but I did great. I was able to keep my balance. I didn't go far, and I couldn't do it for too long because my knees and feet wer... Read more

  • Newest study on obesity.

    5/8/2016 12:51:21 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    The study on obesity that just came out looked for six years at The Biggest Loser contestants who lost weight. What they found was that almost all of them put most or all of their weight back on within those six years. They found that by the end of their time at The Loser, they had a much slower met...

  • HELP!!!

    5/3/2016 1:56:06 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    I'm caught up in the muck and mire of the campaign season, and it is the worst it has ever been. A leading candidate is just making harmful stuff up about the opposition. It is outrageous what he just blurted out there. And the outcome is starting to look inevitable. As those phony IRS calls say,"... Read more

  • Dare I hope?... Yes I do

    4/28/2016 6:39:10 PM, by VELVETDRAGONFLY

    Finally had my appt today. Dr. is doing some blood work and I have to wait for the results. After a long talk about my symptoms, he feels there are some medical issues that could be stopping my progress. I have another appt in 2 weeks with a sleep specialist and by then my blood work should be b... Read more
