I was doing well until!
I was doing very well indeed on the ETL plan. That is until I had blood work done after five months. I was hoping, of course, that I would see lower cholesterol numbers. My numbers were not high enough for the doctor to be concerned, but had ... Read more
One Week Gone
One Week Gone, September 7th. Already a week into the new month and what progress have I made? No loss of weight because I was snacking and eating too much and too much of the wrong things. Not one minute of exercise unless you count getting ... Read more
Grumble, Grouch, Achoo!
It started late Saturday afternoon with a scratchy throat. I thought I was having an allergy attack, but when an allergy pill didn’t help and it was worse on Sunday morning, I began to suspect that I had the beginnings of a cold. Stopped up no... Read more

A Really, Really Good Day

I Have Plans
Sunday, August 7, 2011
The day didn’t start out well. I woke this morning with lots of stiffness and a bit of pain in my back. At Church I found the air conditioning turned on high enough to kill hogs. So freezing and trying to be thankf... Read more
Questions and Decisions
SUNNYH99’s and WATERDIAMONDS’ comments on my blog yesterday have given me a lot to think about. Their advice to take my time and think through what I really wanted, whether I really wanted to eat vegan and to finally make up my mind as to what ... Read more
July Was A Bust
July was a bust! I didn’t lose any weight this month. I let the whole month fly by and have been slipping every few days. I had non-vegan foods anytime I was out with friends where it was difficult to find vegan items. I just didn’t try. It... Read more
