Even though Brady is my middle son, I saved his story for last. It's hardest to write I think because Brady and I are so much alike, it's scary. I think for that reason when I see some of the things Brady is going through now at his age of 34, I... Read more

It was so much fun writing about my oldest son and his life, that I've decided to do a blog about each of my 3 sons. I hope they don't mind. Today it's my youngest son, Chris's turn. Chris was my surprise baby. I remember Roseanne Barr telling D... Read more
What I Have Learned....
Tuesday, August 07, 2012      26 comments

I think the most important thing I have learned THIS TIME is that it IS possible to treat myself sometimes -- as long as I RETURN to my good habits later. I used to think once I was all over. And I used to be that way. I would pig ... Read more
A Wonderful Trip without Any Damage!

First of all--I have to be honest. I ate too much. I was on vacation. When I went to St. Louis/Memphis, etc. earlier this summer/spring, I was very careful. I had one or two meals that I let loose a little but NEVER NEVER did I go crazy. I had a... Read more

Yesterday, on a whim my friend and I went out for lunch. We headed to Olive Garden. I love their soup and salad lunch (I get the zuppa tuscana soup--delicious and not too high caloried, and always get the low-fat Ital. dressing for my salad), bu... Read more

...of my boss finding my blog here? He discovered the article on the Huffington Post all by himself (he's a regular reader). I got an e-mail from him yesterday with the link (like I didn't know about it). In that article, I sing the praises of S... Read more

I had a good time yesterday and am so proud of myself for being careful about everything I ate. The scale rewarded me this morning. After being up a pound yesterday, this morning I was down to 150.2! That is my lowest weight since July 4 when I ... Read more

I have always though I would have been a good Jewish child, (hope that's not too politically incorrect) because I carry so much guilt around with me. I feel responsible for everything that is wrong in my home, for everything that might possibly ... Read more

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

I am not a fan of Panera Bread. I find the bread on their sandwiches just too HARD to chew. In fact once I had a temporary cap on one of my teeth and while eating one of their... Read more

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
