We are going to the new stadium on Saturday!!! Late afternoon game, supposed to be in the 70s, should be great. Let's just hope they don't get pounded like they did today.

I was sick all day today. I developed a headache shortly after I woke up. I would say a migraine, but I don't think it was quite as bad as a migraine. But similar in certain ways. This has happened before but not too often. The last one I r... Read more
Some Little Slip-Ups
I have definitely slipped up and had more sugar this week than I would have liked. This was in part because of the death of a cousin (DH's cousin, actually). It sent me into a bit of a tailspin. I slipped up at the repast and did not turn awa... Read more
My Sugar Battles
Without going into a lot of detail, they have actually been pretty good. I've made a lot of progress in the last month or two as far as fighting my sugar demons is concerned. I've drastically reduced my intake of refined sugar, and I am very p... Read more
A Non-Scale Victory
I have been wearing XL T-shirts ever since I can remember. Depending on the cut of my shirt and my current weight, sometimes they could be a little snug.
Today in my office, they were giving out free t-shirts (some organization; I am sti... Read more
Couldn't handle the praise
I know it's been a little while. I have a few things i can comment on. Last Saturday, the 14th, I went to a family gathering. My cousin's (actually my husband's) son just returned from a tour of duty in Iraq. He has been in the military for ... Read more
Just to clarify
When I talk about giving up sugar, I am only talking about refined sugars, which includes HFCS of course. I am NOT talking about fruit. I love fruit and I think it is very good for you!!! It is beside the point that today I was not very good ... Read more
What is my biggest healthy eating accomplishment so far?
I just answered this question on the Daily Spark. I LOVE edamame!!! A year ago, I never even heard of it. Now it is one of my real favorites. Give me shelled edamame, and I am a very happy woman. Fortunately, it is frequently on the salad b... Read more
It's Deja Vu all Over Again
The above is a quote from Yogi Berra, though he may not have really said it. The significance here is that I experienced a sense of deja vu when I was in California last week. We were at a Polo Ralph Lauren outlet, and that is where I was when... Read more
Lost my internet (temporarily)
My participation here is likely to be erratic until Sunday. As luck would have it, that is March 1, so I can start off with the new month.
We got home from California, and almost immediately, we started having problems with our internet. ... Read more
I'm Back - in more ways than one
We touched down at JFK Airport at 4:45 am on Monday morning, which is 1:45 am Pacific time. The trip was really good. I had a great time with my son, David. The short reprieve from the cold weather was nice, too. As for my parents, they are... Read more
Greetings from California
Well, I am here, and the weather is beautiful. I am having a hard time eating normally, if you will. Part of it is the time change, and part of it is being away from my normal routine. So far I am not proud of how I am doing, but I will just ... Read more
Recap for the week
I am down 1.4 lbs. this week. Of course, that is after a 2 lb. gain, so I still net a gain for the month.
What I did right:
Major elimination of sugar. I did a reasonable job adhering to my goals for 5 of the 7 days. Some difficul... Read more
What worked and what didn't
Well, I am up 2 lbs. this week. It is discouraging, but I really think I can stop it. I think that a lot of us that have let our weight get out of hand have had a point (a high weight limit, if you will) where we will really not want to gain m... Read more
I haven't blogged for a few days. I have not been as good as I should be about sugar. Once again, I feel like I really have to swear it off pretty much. Small pieces of dark chocolate seem to be ok. Candy itself (like jelly beans) doesn't ha... Read more
