Beware that first bite
Ever since I came back from vacation - and, actually, just before I went - I have had problems staying on program. On any program. I did make it a whole week on the Belly Fat Cure program, which was remarkable for me lately. But I have seen s... Read more
Just not ready
I have proven to myself that I am simply not ready for the freedom of Weight Watchers, even though I have had a good deal of success on it in the past. By taking away the barriers and allowing myself to eat anything (but not everything) I want ... Read more
This week in yoga, we were concentrating on Aparigraha, one of the yamas that are one of the 8 limbs of yoga. A yama is a set of moral codes. This first yama is non-violence. This one refers to non-hoarding.

The Person I Need to Ignore
By Jon Acuff:
The #1 person you need to ignore.
If someone talked to you the way you talk to you, you’d never have lunch with him.
You’d tell him they were really discouraging and hurtful.
You’d wonder why he doubts on your dreams so ... Read more
Happy Birthday, Dad!
For the past 88 years, this earth has been hosting the most amazing man, my Dad. He is kind, funny, silly, honest and caring. He teaches me something every day - usually about patience.
Dad was a man who, if he had to sit around very long... Read more
A Snow Day
It is snowing today. This is the first one of the year that is sticking. The first snow of the year always makes me want to bake Christmas cookies. Not so much this year, though. This year I am watching it come down and already my feet feel ... Read more
What is different?
I have been on this journey, this time, for nearly 7 years. As I have mentioned before, I started in January 2007 in Weight Watchers. Over the next 2 years, I lost 113 lbs. I kept it off for 2 years. Then my folks got sick and hurt. And I l... Read more
I just got back last night from a week vacation. It was great to get away and let someone else be the hyper-responsible one for a while. I went back to Florida where I used to live to visit friends. Sigh. It was 80 degrees when I boarded the... Read more
I deserve it!
I was reading a blog this morning where the blogger was ruminating on this phrase - "I deserve it". I have used this phrase so many times when I wanted something. Usually, when I wanted to eat something. So, now I am thinking about this, too.... Read more
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. Instead, what I do is to dedicate my year to a particular lesson. Some lessons take multiple years. I think this may be one of them.
This year, my lesson was to learn to just let things be. Let it go... Read more

Now, this may not sound like such a great accomplishment to some, but this is the longest I have gone without a blow out since April, I believe... Read more
I am officially transitioning off of Medifast. Like that is anything new, really. I haven't eaten any MF food in some time. I do eat the occasional meal replacement, but mostly it has been real food that I eat. I am minding my carbs, but inc... Read more
Just a short post to say that I am feeling much better than I was on Sunday. I am doing well with not eating in bed. Since I can't seem to control myself, I need to just avoid it altogether. I have had to stop spending my day off watching rec... Read more
I'm so tired of saying this
Once again, I am SOOO tired of saying I messed up. Any time I decide that I am going to do this program 100% like it's my job, I wind up binging. So I am going to have to stop doing that.
I am having a terrible time with binging in bed,. ... Read more
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
Today is sunny outside. Not particularly warm, but sunny. I love, no I need the sun. I didn't realize how much my body needs sunshine until I moved back up North after living in the South for 11 winters. It doesn't have to be particularly wa... Read more
