Bearing it all (almost)

Maybe these pictures will be the kick in the butt I need to really buckle down. Or maybe not. So I ordered some new swimsuits in anticipation of our hoped-for trip to Hawai... Read more
Gotta walk the walk, not just talk the talk
Thursday, September 02, 2010      4 comments

I got to thinking again about the way my Dad eats. I always thought a lot of my eating problems came from my mom, but obviously that instant gratification thing comes from his side, too. There's always been lots of comments on how I look, b... Read more
Eat when you're hungry; stop when you're full
Wednesday, September 01, 2010      5 comments

It seems so simple, doesn't it? It's what naturally thin people do. They don't even think about it, they just naturally do it, which is part of why they're naturally thin people. It's part of what I've been working on lately. Paying more at... Read more
What season are you?

This is almost another weight loss is like analogy, but that wasn't quite right. We are experiencing the earliest fall on record, as far as I can remember, anyway. It was beginning before we left for our vacation. Fall shouldn't start in Au... Read more
Changing the opinion on small dogs, one person at a time!
Sunday, August 29, 2010      2 comments

Which almost has nothing to do with this post. But most people who come over are surprised by how "mellow" and obedient our dogs are. I can't tell you the number of people I've met who think chihuahuas (or any small dog) are yappy, nippy things.... Read more
Be a detective, not a judge

That was the message in one of the daily emails I get today. What a great message! Wish I'd thought of it! The meaning is that whenever you get off track, off plan, whatever you'd like to call it, examine what's going on instead of telling ... Read more
Bad runs happen
Friday, August 27, 2010      3 comments

And I suppose it's just another notch in my "real runner" belt. Despite the fact that I destressed after my parents left, Wednesday night DH discovered that the computer he has the MagicJack on (aka our phone) had a virus. He informed me of... Read more
Comfort foods

I wanted to clear something up about yesterday's blog -- a lot of people seemed to think I was frustrated by my Dad's eating. Now, there are many things about my Dad that are frustrating -- and not just to me, to my DH too -- but I don't really ... Read more
The poster child for an unhealthy lifestyle
Wednesday, August 25, 2010      6 comments

Yup, that's my Dad, who once again has managed to anger & frustrate me beyond imagination in just 2 days. It is, frankly, quite mind boggling that he's made it to the ripe old age of 84. I suppose I should be grateful -- hopefully since I take m... Read more
Swimming makes me feel thin
Monday, August 23, 2010      6 comments

It seems so bizarre -- something that involves wearing a bathing suit, which isn't the most pleasant thing for most of us, myself included -- does make me feel thin. That buoyant feeling of the water. I have loved to swim since I was a very... Read more
But it's nice to be home
Sunday, August 22, 2010      7 comments

Even if I was forced to eat sweet potato chips. Somehow my intentions to blog fell by the wayside . . . not that we were really doing all that much most of the time, more like the Wifi would bog down at night and be really slow. Thankf... Read more
We have arrived
Monday, August 16, 2010      3 comments

Can I say how much I love my Ipod? Since we have free wireless in the room, I can actually blog. Last week was a real whirlwind. I don't think I've blogged so little since I joined. I got my exercise in, ate fairly well, altho the sleep th... Read more
Trusting my body
Thursday, August 12, 2010      7 comments

It's a really, really hard thing to do. Sometimes I'm really in tune with my body, and sometimes we seem to be at odds. I kind of feel like I've been at odds with it again. Today I decided to WI but not look at the number. Sometimes they te... Read more

My spark buddy Kate wrote an interesting blog today about the things she's learning on her road to health. Check it out -- www.sparkpeople.com/mypa

Talk about portion distortion!
Monday, August 09, 2010      4 comments

We went out to dinner Saturday at an Italian restaurant DH had a coupon to. There's gotta be a coupon. Sometimes it makes me want to scream. It's a local place, so no nutritional info. There are a lot of local Italian places; there's a larg... Read more
