Good Day Today
This week has been a good one and I know the rest of the week will be as well. God is with me, as He always has been, however I have finally faced my stronghold and am working with Him to defeat it. He promises me I can, so I will!
I hope t... Read more
Back In The Saddle Again
I'm Back In The Saddle Again...Don't you love that song? I know I do...
And no, I don't mean the Gene Autry version, although he's okay. I'm talking about Aerosmith's version!
Have any of you ladies read the book by Shaunti Feldhahn "F... Read more
Dying To Self
Man, what a tough thing to do! I finally faced the music and determined that:
1. Can't do this without God (can we say "duh"!)
2. God has "not given me a Spirit of fear, but of Power, of Love and Self-Control" which means it's my job... Read more
I had to go to the oral surgeon on Wednesday to have 6 teeth removed to prepare for a partial, so I've been a bit sore the latter part of this week. Unfortunately I've got six weeks to wait until I can start getting fit for the partial and it wo... Read more
I suppose I'm too old not to be critical of people's claims (especially ones who stand to make a profit!)

I've not blogged recently, but I'm still plugging away at it. Glad to see that everyone else is doing the same!
I've got to go grocery shopping today. Uggh! I hate it, but of course it's a necessary evil, isn't it? I suppose I would like ... Read more
Same Five Pounds
I've been riding the oh so familiar roller coaster lately...you guys know what I'm talking about...the weight loss roller coaster. If I could charge for tickets, I'd make a million!
Even though I'm eating vegan, I've not been tracking and I... Read more
Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP)
I have read a lot of delicious sounding recipes with TVP listed as an ingredient, however I hesitated trying them out because of my trepidation with trying such a weird sounding food. I bought some TVP about 2 weeks ago to try it out, but had no... Read more
21 Day Vegan Challenge
One of the lovely ladies in my vegan group mentioned this program. Never heard of it before, but going to do it!
It is sponsored by the Physicians For Responsible Medicine, and one of the physicians listed is a dietician from East Pasco Med... Read more
Wow...Amazing What The Numbers Tell Ya!
Okay. Now it's a reality, I can't hide behind the lies I tell myself..."You didn't eat that much." "Eating bread is making me retain this weight," or my personal favorite..."That was just a TINY amount of peanut butter." LOL
I ate WAY too ... Read more
We all have one. At least I'm sure that most of us do. A favorite comfort food. For me, it would have to be peanut butter and ice cream. Not together, of course, although that does sound yummy especially if the ice cream were chocolate!

Counting the Hours
I've got to travel to Florida tomorrow and I'm nervous as heck. I haven't flown in so very long. My ex-husband and I are in a custody battle over our three kids. I wanted to relocate them to Wisconsin to be with me, my husband, the kids' half br... Read more
I succumbed yesterday to a bit of emotional eating. Cookies were the weapon of choice! I'm certain that my stress is not as bad as others in this world. It's hard, sure but not as hard as the poor folks in Haiti, or a million other places.

Gotta Move On
I have a problem with perfectionism. I have always seen things in "black and white" and have difficulty with any grey areas of my life. When I mess up and eat something I really shouldn't or I go over my calorie allowance for the day, my alter e... Read more
