Report from the edge
I don't know, feels like the edge of something.
This is going to be a long one, ladies. I started writing some of this two days ago and then I hit something by accident and my entire text disappeared. Writing in a doc and copy/pasting this... Read more
Going back to tracking
With my life so unstructured at the moment, tracking feels good. Plus, the first few days I let myself eat for comfort but I really don't want to gain weight right now or feel sluggish.
I called my husband yesterday to tell him I would pay... Read more
Forgot in all the excitement
Just had my six-month A1C and it went down a point from 6.1 to 6.0 - still in prediabetic range, but it's been four years now that I've maintained a lower-than-diabetic reading.
Of course this week my routines are all shot to pieces, no Sen... Read more
Enormous Changes At The Last Minute
This is actually the title of a book of short stories by Grace Paley that I have always loved, but I think it's also a good title for this post. Just two months short of 65, I'm leaving my husband of 15 years and moving from his small Ohio town ... Read more
Meanwhile, 8 weeks later...
Hi All. I'm still here, but I never did go back to tracking, which means I hardly ever get on this site. But once in a while I check in just to see how my Sparkfriends are doing. I think they call that lurking?
My weight is holding steady a... Read more
The party's over
Well, I said I'd go back to tracking if I gained any weight. I'm only up a pound, but I'm going to do it. The truth is I'm ready anyway. I was just a little burned out on it and needed a break. I really want to drop another 10 pounds this spring... Read more
Just idling in place
Maybe it wasn't good that my doctor seemed so okay with my weight. I seem to have given myself permission not to lose any more. Or at least I've stopped pushing at it. I'm still very much paying attention to what foods I'm eating, sticking to m... Read more
As most of you who I correspond with regularly know, I am Jewish. I grew up in a middle-class bedroom suburb of Washington D.C., where people were pretty sophisticated and cosmopolitan. For the past 15 years I've been married to Dave, a lapsed ... Read more
This weekend is my annual post-Thanksgiving turkey cooking marathon. Yesterday we got three fresh 26-pound free-range turkeys marked down to half price. I roast them, make soup from the bones, and dice up the meat to store in freezer bags and us... Read more
My doctor says it's a good sign that I'm having trouble losing weight!
I had my six-month visit today, and my doctor is happier with my weight and stats than I am, bless her tiny little 100-pounds-soaking-wet self. She says - get this - that the fact I'm having a hard time losing more weight is a sign that I'm heal... Read more
Made it home in one piece
...barely! On the way home the motors in two windows died and our brakes started burning up in the mountains, plus we got miserably lost! But the rest of the vacation was fine. Saw my siblings and started three good oil paintings of them that I... Read more
We'll be leaving Monday for our annual September trip the beach in Delaware, where my family has a shared beach house. This year will be our longest stay, 2 1/2 weeks. Part of the time we'll have visitors - my siblings coming out for a weekend r... Read more
Attack of the giant sugar snap pea vines
This is me standing with the vines growing over my head. Never had them this big before! It's a giant fresh salad bar for those of us who love raw sugar snap peas.

I think these sinus infections and miscellaneous bugs I pick up for a few days here and there - what seems like a few times a month, though I've never kept track - are my biggest obstacle. When I'm under the weather, exercise goes by the wayside... Read more
surprise craving attack
A few days ago I was watching a tv show in which a man was trying to ice a cake for his mother's birthday, when all of a sudden I experienced this immense craving for frosting. Thick, buttery white frosting. It was much stronger than the mild sn... Read more
