I'm still here, sort of....

Thanks, Sue! (Increasing my water intake)

As I worked on the album I was reminded that, immediately after learning that I have leukemia I had to... Read more
Feast or Famine... (Starting over, over again.)
After nearly three weeks with no entries, I'm posting four entries in less than 12 hours!
I've just sent myself back to Stage 1, and re-vamped my goals.
It's been a tough winter, in a number of ways, and I really got off track for much... Read more
It's not just the weight.

How do you spell success?
Some of my best blog entries start out as replies to other members. This is a reply I just left on the Introduce Yourself forum. The member wants to meet a certain weight goal by a milestone birthday early next year.

Temperance, one more time...
I've written here before about my problem with temperance, or, more accurately, my lack of temperance. Looking at my last blog entry, I realized that that is the source of the problems I've been having this month.

On the other hand... (video success)
On the other hand, I was able, eventually, to create a video and upload it to YouTube successfully. (I had already created a video and uploaded it, only to learn four hours later that it was rejected due to length.)
This is a still photo t... Read more
