I'm so glad I read NANHBH's blog about self effacacy. I'm going to try to quit looking at losing 5 pounds at a time, and instead look to lose just 1 measly pound; and then another, then another. I KNOW I can lose ONE pound. With that succes... Read more

A friend I hadn't talked with in awhile asked me today what I've been doing. My mind went mostly blank. Ahhh, the joys of advancing age. LOL Most weeks I volunteer in my grandson's classroom, and at a no-kill animal shelter. I also atte... Read more

For those of you who have been knitting socks for a long time, think back to the first one you did: now you know how excited I am. I successfully (with telephone help from a friend) turned the heel last night and am now working the foot. Yes, I ... Read more

I was feeling somewhat virtuous until I tracked my lunch on SP. sigh. Oh well, this evening is a new start. My good feeling came from the fact that I declined to take a 3rd piece of Italian bread and butter-substitute for lunch. Ok, so maybe... Read more

I finally faced up to it and went to the dr this morning - yes, I do have another sinus infection. Nuts! I'm even running a slight fever - an oddity for me. The good news is that I'm now on an antibiotic; the not-so-great news is that it's on... Read more
