Silly, super, strong --- the three positive things are coming easier these days. I DID step out of my comfort zone last night and went to a local event by myself. The person who invited me practically did cartwheels when she saw me. It was ... Read more

HAPPY FRIDAY! Three things I love about myself: 1. Courageous, crafty, compassionate Truth be told, I'm not as compassionate as many others in my family or friends. I see a difference (and it's pronounced in me) between being compass... Read more

Brought to you by ...the Letter F

Thursday, June 10, 2010      12 comments

When I was little, I thought "brought to you by" (as announced on tv) was one word. I used to wonder how you spelled it. Ironic, as I am actually a very good speller. :) Three things about me: I'm friendly, funny, fair. I love that whe... Read more

Yup. Had great success (lost 8 lbs) when doing my first week of BFC. Then I decided bread was more important, followed by chocolate, chocolate, and more. Errrrrrrt. (insert sound of squealing brake). U-turn. I am back on the program.... Read more

One day at a time. I am all too completely aware of my shortcomings. I could rattle off a dozen in 30 seconds. Rattling off a dozen things I like about myself is more of a challenge --- but here is something that I have just caught on to ---- it... Read more

I'm currently on a program where sugar is very limited. It's not that I could not have something, but if I ate "x", then I would prob blow my day's sugar allotment with just a nibble. Yesterday was that day when I was working later than norma... Read more

Thought the building hours would be changing today, so I thought I would have to climb the "monster hill" instead of entering on the lower level and grabbing the elevator. Only the upper door is keyed and getting there requires walking up the bi... Read more

Seat belt tightening that is. It has been a long while since i had to re-cinch my belt so that it was tighter on top. My normal m.o. is for it to be very snug around my belly. What a great place to notice a difference. I am loving it. WOOT!... Read more
