Eating Light during the Holidays
Thursday, November 30, 2017      3 comments

I absolutely love the holidays. Thanksgiving is my favorite, but the whole season just makes me happy. I am not one of those people like my best friend, who says, "Any month with 'BER' in it is OK for Christmas music," but I delight in all the g... Read more

As of this morning I weigh 30.4 lbs less than I did six months ago; 55.4 lbs less than my all-time high a few years ago. I have about 35 lbs before I reach my goal range. I contribute my success so far to a number of changes over several y... Read more
Wasting Food
Tuesday, October 03, 2017      2 comments

I was raised in the Clean Plate Club - 'wasting' food was about the worst thing you could do! However, I realized recently that if I am finishing that extra stuff left on my plate when I am not hungry and don't need it, or that last piece ... Read more

My First Seder
Tuesday, April 11, 2017      2 comments

As my knowledge and experience with Judaism is pretty much limited to the "All-of-a-Kind Family" books, I was very excited to be invited to a Passover Seder. If you're ever invited, go- no matter your religious background you will not regret it.... Read more
Eating Out
Sunday, April 09, 2017      2 comments

My new job involves several elements that make it difficult to control my wellness. It includes: 1. High stress (I am a stress eater and an emotional eater); 2. Long hours (usually 12 hr days); 3. Living in an apartment during the week,... Read more
Here I am back again....
Sunday, April 02, 2017      2 comments

For the I-don't-know-how-many-th time since January 2009. I lose, I gain. I lose, I gain. It should probably upset me more than it does, but honestly I just don't think about myself all that much. I was at 180 in November 2015, when I started my... Read more

I just wanted to let everyone know that things are going really well for me right now. I think this new job is going to be great (though I'm only 3 weeks in during a slack time of year, so it's kind of hard to tell), my husband and I are getting... Read more

This is an extra short blog entry because I'm at work. I have done really well with eating only when I'm hungry, etc. over the last few weeks. I have been off of my birth control pills for about 10 days due to a combination of the pharmacy makin... Read more

Well, the first week of my new job is under my belt and they haven't fired me yet! It's been a gorgeous week. The town I in which I now work is high atop a hill overlooking a city, and it's a pretty affluent suburb. The houses are gorgeous - lik... Read more
Preparing

I probably won't be blogging as much as I have these last two weeks now - my 'unemployment' is over. I start my new job tomorrow. The commute is about 75-90 minutes each way, depending on traffic, and it's a high responsibility salaried position... Read more
Aching
Saturday, October 31, 2015      3 comments

I woke up yesterday with a ton of pain in my lower back - as in, can barely bend over or sit down. This is not a usual occurrence for me, and I think it is a fluke, from sleeping in on a bad mattress, being penned in by dogs so I couldn't move p... Read more

Today I went out with my BFF after she was done with school (she's a 5th grade teacher). It was great to see her (it's been 4 whole days lol). She went through a very messy divorce this year, but just moved into a beautiful new house with her so... Read more
