You'd think I'd learn, but no. In the end, procrastinating costs you time and money. We procrastinated a lot on our home, and it's come back to bite us. The first good deal fell through we presume because the inspection found the house needed a ... Read more
Should I take a rest day?
Altho they say rest days are important, I walk the dogs every day -- twice a day most days. I have the opportunity, tho, to take a real rest day this weekend. We'll be away, so no dogs to walk.
I had a semi-rest day last weekend; only abo... Read more
Do you have a lifecycle?
I'm not talking about the exercise bike here, either. So you find yourself doing the same things, over and over, throughout your life?
I get interested in something, or start something, and throw myself whole heartedly into it. I either st... Read more
What's important to you?
Nothing like a move to show you what's really important to you.
I remember when we moved to Austin, we were moving to an apartment that was smaller than our condo. Since it was a temporary move (and the company paid for it), we put a lot of... Read more
Go easy on yourself or plan B
Rome wasn't built in a day. Every journey begins with a single step. Baby steps, baby.
Yeah, you get the idea -- everything you've always heard; it's true. You didn't put the weight on overnight, and it won't come off overnight, either.

Where's your motivation?
Funny, that was the topic of our WW meeting this week, and it was really timely for me. Not because I lack motivation, but because one of the suggestions for keeping up your motivation was clothes -- either clothes you don't want to wear any mor... Read more
Have I found the secret?
To losing weight -- AND keeping it off?
It's been a long time since I was this "thin". I actually don't doubt that I can get to my GW, even tho I had many tries when I couldn't seem to get that "low". I have faith that I will do it.
Ma... Read more
What am I?
I wish I had a photo, but it's too far away for photos even if I had a working camera.
There is something grazing on my neighbor's yard. Yesterday was the first time I saw it. It is LARGE -- well, like small dog large. Probably about the le... Read more
Happiness is 4 LBDs
LBD = little black dress.
I have a dilemma. Only it's a nice dilemma.
We're going to my husband's HS reunion next weekend. I finally tried on a few dresses yesterday. 4, to be exact. They all fit now; they all look good. I've eliminat... Read more
Become an ingredient snob
I believe pretty strongly in a whole foods diet as much as possible -- aka, very few processed foods. Trying to eat food as close to nature as possible. Oranges instead of orange juice, home cooked meals instead of microwave meals, and so on.

Food, as we all know, can be immediate gratification. We may regret it at our leisure, but boy, that burger, ice cream, insert your fast food of choice, sure tastes good as it's going down, right?
I did break down thru into 141 or so today,... Read more
No perfect body, but a perfect me?
As I become smaller and smaller, I have to come to grips with the fact that my body will never be perfect. Nobody's body is perfect, of course, but that's small comfort sometimes.
I'll probably always have a small pooch. I'll definitely alw... Read more
Both hungry . . . and not
I am back into the end of my cycle, with the accompanying hunger. Not 24/7, but I'll just find that a meal I've planned doesn't satisfy me when I thought that it would, and I end up eating more to fill up.
OTOH, I still struggle with portio... Read more
Happiness is my own computer
Finally! I am writing this blog from my own computer. Almost took a month, but hey, who's counting?
My own bookmarks. My own address book. My wireless keyboard. Yes! Still don't have my own chair, which I think is way more comfortable tha... Read more
One of the things I do not like about DH is his tendency to rush. I hate being rushed, and all too often when we rush, we miss out on things -- or screw them up.
I got my car back, and thankfully it passed inspection. Now, if I'd erased the... Read more
