I'm writing the book of the 2017 success story. The prologue of this book starts with the death of my favorite Aunt Patty September 2 and falling down the rabbit hole. I had the sense to join a grief support group and to get a personal tra... Read more

Friday, June 24, 2016      2 comments

Stiff hands have made using my Kindle to blog nearly impossible and I no longer have a working computer. So I dropped into the library to print out some certificates that I have received from some continuing education classes that I took (and p... Read more

So my day was good. I'm not tracking it as my computer is really slow and with the tracker not worth the frustration. But started the day with tuna, 1/2 banana snack, yogurt with fruit lunch, afternoon low fat latte, snack coming home 2 cups r... Read more
Tracked my truth
Tuesday, December 08, 2015      3 comments

I tracked - that's good. I did everything I know not to do - not eating until later in the day, not getting protein early in the day and then exposing myself to a social situation (translated starved and stuffed down 4 cookies) without enough ... Read more
90 Days and Checking Back in
Tuesday, December 08, 2015      5 comments

I pretty purposely didn't check in over the last 90 days, as I for the first time in a few years started back working at a job. I knew it was going to take all of my mind and body to figure out how to make this work. My Job -- The first ... Read more

I really thought this crisis with a family member would be over by now. Today I got my first break, as they were readmitted to the hospital. So much as been happening. On my own front, had written on my calendar to turn the focus back... Read more

This is how myths begin. I have eaten over 1000 calories the last two days. Yet, yesterday the scale showed 5 lbs down and today I 2 more down. The only really health thing I have done is some sit ups. But let's be real, there is no way... Read more
