Been a while, and I've had a lot of water pass under my bridge.
I'll share a post I made to one of my teams today, as it sums up most of what I've been dealing with lately.
Hi everybody. Been a while since I've checked in and I apologiz... Read more
Shiney and New!
Fresh home from my VSG, I'm resting, sipping, walking, and feeling better each day. The first 36 hours were rough. The first 24 had me asking what the hell I had done to myself. My biggest concern now is that I can't imagine how the heck I'm sup... Read more
2012 is on the shelf, 2013 will be epic!
I am so thankful that 2013 is finally here. 2012 was a mixed bag for me and I've been looking forward to a marked fresh start. 2013 has lots in store, many things on the horizon. I've got a difficult legal situation that will be put to rest, but... Read more
I've done well the first half of 2012. I lost 23 lbs, gained about 5 back while out on Summer break, and I'm getting ready to go back to work Friday, with school beginning on Tuesday. I work near 30 miles from home and, as a school bus driver, I... Read more
Skinny jeans? Not so fast...
With my recent weight loss, I've found my jeans becoming baggy. Not overly so, but enough that I've caught myself thinking about buying some new replacements. What amuses me is that I find that I'm also enjoying the new found space in my dungare... Read more
Ninja Dieting and Weight Loss
I was thinking about how I am successful with weight loss only when I measure and plan my meals and track my Fitness minutes. I've tried to ease away from those trackers for Nutrition and Fitness, only to find my pounds and inches moving upward ... Read more
Score one for the "Little Guy"
In taking nutrition classes for the WLS that I've decided not to have, I caught on to the recommendation to eat cottage cheese. All debate about alternative foods aside, (including the benefits of going nonfat vs low fat) I've made some observat... Read more
Betcha Can't Eat Just One
Well, this is the type of stuff I think about when I'm tracking my food, counting calories, and get all caught up in portion control....
At lunch today I calculate that I have enough room in my numbers for the day to allow a serving of eith... Read more
Seesaws and Yoyos
Been feeling like I've been riding a seesaw and playing with a Yoyo for the past few months.
Just when I think I've got it figured out, and formulate a plan of action, I change my mind.
Need to find a way to achieve some Zen and ponder what... Read more
WLS or not?
I have spent the past two or three weeks looking into WLS and have started the approval process with my medical provider. I am not certain I want to go that route, but I will continue the approval process until I decide for certain either way. A... Read more

Note to self
Things I did today that I shouldn't do again:
~Wear my hair in that style again as to avoid that remark about looking matronly.
~Eat a "special treat" early in the day, it totally steals your thunder when your ready for one later.
~Ask wha... Read more

Missed it by a quarter pound
Today's weigh-in just goes to show that you can't guess what the scale will say. I thought for sure that I'd hit that one pound loss this week. My clothes are fitting better, I was good with what I ate all week, kicked up the exercise with wal... Read more
