Yesterday, when I got home from work, there was a box waiting on the table for me that had arrived in the mail. I love getting packages in the mail--it's like Christmas or your birthday, especially when I didn't remember ordering anything and co... Read more

Sunday, July 22, 2012      31 comments

I picked up my grandkids Friday afternoon from their Daycare. We had a great time--as usual. But they are both terrified of little Lola, so that makes it hard on all of us. Tried to keep them separated as much as possible, but Lola loves kids. S... Read more
Those Fat Pictures
Friday, July 20, 2012      46 comments

I tried to take pictures of some of the fat pictures I found in that envelope, but as usual, they are very blurry, and I can't find those pictures on my computer. They may be on my computer at work--that's where I used to download all my picture... Read more
How Clueless Can Some People Be?
Thursday, July 19, 2012      31 comments

I don't really care that much about what others think of me or my loss, nor do I expect accolades any longer. I do sometimes wonder if people realize when they see me after 6 months or a year and I still look the same, how hard it is to achieve ... Read more

Tuesday, July 17, 2012      48 comments

The scale has been all over the place in the last few weeks. And no wonder! I've been allowing myself way too much of the wrong food and also eating way too much of it! In the weeks after my surgery, I got as low as 147. I was good about ke... Read more

New Food Products that I'm Loving!

I really think the so-called "diet" food that is on the market today is far superior to what what available in the past. Of course REAL food is best, but when you want to make something and need substitute ingredients, you need to buy some of th... Read more

I got flowers at work today. That happens once or twice a year and it's always exciting. Today it was totally unexpected, it's not my birthday or anniversary. Sometimes hubby will send me flowers on the anniversary of our first date (May 10, 196... Read more

What other people think has always been way too important to me. Sometimes I wish I didn't care so much, because not only is my behavior affected by what I perceive to be the ... Read more

On May 22, I had a hysterectomy, and the doctor told me I couldn't return to work for 6 weeks. I did an arm pump when she told me that, because I have LOTS of sick leave built up after 35 years at my job, and was looking forward to that time off... Read more
