I Wish The Phone Would Quit Ringing
We are hanging on to our landline phone, probably because we are old fashioned. I can't imagine life without that phone, even though both Du and I have cellphones. I do not take my cellphone upstairs to bed with me, however, I leave it on the ch... Read more

I was frustrated back in October when I saw 203 pounds on my scale and knew that NOW I had over 50 lbs. to lose to get back to goal. I hated leaving ONE-derland, it was like a defeat. Still, 50 lbs. didn't seem like much, not compared to that 17... Read more
Going for a Walk on a Cooler Night
I correspond regularly (via e-mail) with a cousin of Du's dad's. I think she puts out a generic e-mail, then personalizes it to several relatives, but I always send her a personal reply, with lots of pictures. I like to write, so I enjoy our cor... Read more
I have always loved trivia, starting when I was just a kid, and would watch the Art Fleming version of Jeopardy with my Mom. It was fun to see if you know any of the answers (questions), before the contestants. I still watch Jeopardy every day a... Read more
Wearing those old clothes again..
This morning I decided it was time to try on the top I bought for the Fourth of July back when I was at my goal weight. I remember it was a little snug across my belly, but was hopeful it would look "okay." My belly got big when I gained weight ... Read more
LOG in that food BEFORE you EAT IT!!! (Lesson Learned)
After our great Father's Day celebration/barbecue yesterday, Du and I were talking about middle son this morning. Physically, his weight is really started to be a problem for him. He sat in Du's recliner yesterday (even with the cancer in Du's h... Read more

Feeling Successful Again!
It was a long period of feeling like a failure. After maintaining my 178-lb. loss for nearly three years (from 2011-2014), (and feeling so good about myself) I had a regain back in 2014, but managed to get it turned around and lost the 33 lbs. I... Read more
Good News From the Doctor
Today was my appt. with my primary care physician (he's actually a PA), to get a new scrip for my Xarelto. The ER doc gave me 15 mg. tablets to take twice a day for the first 21 days, with instructions to see my doctor for a new scrip in the mea... Read more
Joy and Horror
I was all set to write a blog today about the joys of losing weight. And then Orlando happened. Such horror. But let's start with the JOY!
I was unprepared for how good it feels to be normal sized, it had been so many years since I was anyw... Read more
Bowling with Granddaughter Amber
I don't have much to write about today. Last night was bowling night (for Du) with 6-year-old granddaughter Amber. Every year for the last three years, Du has bowled in a summer league with grandson Duncan. This year, it is his sister Amber who ... Read more
National Cancer Survivor's Day Celebration
We had seen an ad in the newspaper for a National Cancer Day's Celebration being held at a local church and Du signed us up to go. It included free dinner and some great speakers, plus so many people who are surviving, which is encouraging. I th... Read more
