Hey! I ate a lot, and worked really hard for the past four days - how about you?! It was a blurry whirl wind of family, visitors, cooking, cleaning and yes...eating. I probably didn't do that well. I KNOW I ate many things I shouldn't have, but... Read more

Boy oh boy is my body stubborn! Well, I guess my brain is even more stubborn because I am not giving up and now, finally, the scale is starting to move. I have been more consistent in my exercise and have incorporated some running/... Read more
Weight gain when beginning a new exercise program...
I have decided to be more mindful of my daily exercise and get a pedometer. I bought the fitbit Zip and so far like it very much! My goal is to walk at least 10,000 steps a day. At first I was not meeting the goal. Boy was I being sloth like wit... Read more
Weight gain, age, health and all that
Well my weight gain seems to have leveled off. I am a mear 20 pounds short of my all time high. Maybe it is menopause, my slowly diminishing thyroid or whatever. Who knows. All I know is that now that I am in my 50s my body just do... Read more

Hi! Boy since turning 50 everything is a struggle for me. I can't seem to lose even a pound - and if i do, it comes right back on. I can't get in an exercise routine. Feeling like a big blob. So starting today I am going to try following a cou... Read more
UP down UP down - whoa!
Geesh. What the what? I know I am under stress right now, but c'mon! Why do I keep veering so far off course? The results are practically immediate too. I spend a day or two eating food that is (what normal healthy people eat everyday, i might a... Read more
Boy, this is a sloooooow process...
Maybe it is my age (over 50), my thyroid (hypo), by blood sugar (hypo), my lifestyle - whatever - this is one tough and slow process. Ok, way back to the beginning three or so years ago I weighed 200 lbs. Yes, whoa. I lost 50 and have kept if of... Read more

Five pounds up??? Really????
Ugh. What is wrong with me? I had just hit the tippy top of my healthy weight range. I was happy, excited, and motivated. Then...day before yesterday I was cold, tired and starting to feel sick again. My antibiotics are over and I am afraid the ... Read more
New journey starts today
Maybe that is a little wrong, what I mean is - my paleo experiment is over and now back to regular old low carbing. I love low carbing. I have been doing it for years. Of course there have been temporary wobbles (and the subsequent gains) but th... Read more
Day 30 -oops guess I missed day 29
Here I am at the end of my paleo 30 day trial. To be honest, with sickness and at least 2 holiday derailments, I did not do a very good job. What I did do however, is get back on the low carb track and lose some pounds! Yes, this is very good in... Read more
As my paleo experiment comes to an end (on friday) I reflect on what I have learned. I feel that reading a great deal and experiencing paleo type foods have made me more aware and thoughtful of what I put in my body. I have been low carb for a v... Read more
