Too Short...
Thursday, March 02, 2017      19 comments

Today, I hit an almost-milestone. If I were as tall as my driver's license says I am, I'd be a normal BMI! Since the DMV doesn't do decimals, I'm actually half an inch shorter, so I have to wait another 2 pounds to actually hit this milesto... Read more
Did We Do the Right Thing?

We got some very bad news today. My husband's stepfather passed away this morning. It was very sudden--he was playing soccer with his kids on Sunday. I came home to help my husband make arrangements to get down to Peru, board the dog and al... Read more

So after I posted my blog yesterday, I decided I had to go back and get a different car. My husband was trying to be nice, so he agreed to do all the talking. We arrived and the salesman we worked with yesterday was outside. He was surprised to ... Read more
Buyer's Remorse
Saturday, December 10, 2016      16 comments

We bought a car today. I don't feel very good about it. I am actually really upset, because I just feel like it's not that great of a car. I went to go test drive a Prius, but I didn't like it that much. The display reminded me too much of my pa... Read more
Is Tomorrow the Day?

I feel like I should start with clarification, since it seemed like I was saying I don't like blogging in my previous blog, and it also seemed like I was disappointed about no one wanting my letters. But neither is the case! I like bl... Read more
Blogging Ain't Easy
Thursday, November 17, 2016      12 comments

Last night and tonight, I've spent an inordinate amount of time blinking with the cursor on my computer screen, browsing Reddit for inspiration, staring into space, and trying to ignore the Spanish news programs my husband was watching, all tryi... Read more
Writing Letters
Wednesday, November 16, 2016      13 comments

My hobby is writing letters. It started when I quit smoking four years ago. I'd go to CVS where I used to buy cigarettes (and now you can't buy them there any more!), and buy stickers instead. Once I had too many to know what to do with, I decid... Read more

If you look on the internet, you'll find quotes attributed to several people, the gist of which is, "We judge others by their actions and ourselves by our intentions." I remember being young and just becoming aware of intangible ideas like ... Read more

I walked from the train to work today. The closest Metro station from my office is about a 12-15 minute walk. There's another stop that's a 25 minute walk, but it's five stops and a transfer closer, so I figure that more than makes up for the 10... Read more
Back When a Walk Wasn't Inconvenient

While I continue pondering what I used to do "right," when I wasn't overweight, I remember that in my senior year of college, I went to the gym everyday. There was one day when I had a big test, and I was so tired, so I decided beforehand that I... Read more
Back When I Didn't Care
Saturday, November 12, 2016      14 comments

I'm talking about when I didn't care so much about food! What happened? Why did things change? When I was a high schooler, food just didn't seem to be a thing, you know? I remember going to school with an orange for breakfast (that I'd eat ... Read more
A 135-Pound Lifestyle
Thursday, November 10, 2016      18 comments

I've been hovering between 135 and 138 for a really, really long time. Months, I dare say. Probably at least five months. I know what's happening--I'm eating too much--sneaking too many nibbles here and there and not tracking them, or adding an ... Read more
"Imagine No Possessions"
Saturday, November 05, 2016      9 comments

Ah, in America, we love our cars. I bet if I asked you to tell me about your first car (and I am, so feel free to post your story below), it would read like puppy love. Mine does... I bought it for $500 in 2008. I was 25. I hadn't driven in... Read more
