Health At Every Size
Friday, October 12, 2012      10 comments

There's a lot of debate going on regarding the Health At Every Size (HAES) movement. Most of it seems to focus on the idea that HAES is just a way of giving fat people permission to stay fat, or that it encourages people to get fat by not shamin... Read more
Even Sparkers have bad days
Sunday, September 30, 2012      8 comments

I've had a pretty successful year, and I am pleased with my progress. But Friday and yesterday were the kinds of days that fill me with frustration. If it wasn't nailed down or actively running away, I was eating it. I'm not sure what set o... Read more
Not Broken
Friday, September 28, 2012      7 comments

I fell off my bike yesterday. Actually, I sort of tipped over on my bike. Rather like Artie Johnson and his tricycle back in the Laugh-In days. I had to come to a stop when a car stopped in front of me, and I was trying to gear down with th... Read more
One year on Spark People
Thursday, September 20, 2012      15 comments

Today is my first SparkVersary. In some ways it seems like a long time coming, in others I can hardly believe a year has passed. A year ago I was teetering on the brink of 300 pounds and horrified with myself. I suffered a lot of back pain,... Read more
Ankle: tender, but much improved
Monday, September 17, 2012      9 comments

It appears that I didn't do permanent damage to myself, and the ankle is quite walkable. Still tender at certain angles, and a little swollen, but it bears my weight fine and I'm not really limping anymore. I will be very cautious when I wa... Read more
Sprained ankle?! NOOOO!!!!
Saturday, September 15, 2012      12 comments

Argh! Taking a walk with DD this evening, I didn't notice that the sidewalk was cut away and managed to step on the edge of a well-disguised hole just perfectly to flip my ankle and fall to the ground. We were about 3/4 of a mile from home, and ... Read more
Miracle Mom
Wednesday, September 12, 2012      13 comments

Sunday I was sitting in my car on the shoulder of I-70, sobbing as my sister told me that Mom had been intubated, was unconscious, and I was probably never going to talk to my mother again. Yesterday evening, Mom called me to say hi. She is... Read more
Update on Mom
Monday, September 10, 2012      5 comments

Mom is doing better, but the doctors have no idea what's wrong with her. Her body basically was shutting down yesterday, but none of the tests they did revealed anything. By evening, though, she had stabilized, and today she seems to be getting ... Read more
Pity stress doesn't burn calories
Sunday, September 09, 2012      10 comments

My mother is very ill. She may die. She is 2000 miles away. I need tomorrow to work out my calendar, and then will probably be flying out there on Tuesday. So I will likely be absent for a while. I can hardly form sentences. I am... Read more

Bike followup
Friday, August 24, 2012      6 comments

I made it home under my own power yesterday, despite further realizing that part of my problem might well have been not eating anything all day. It was a slow ride, but I made it. Felt punky for the rest of the day, but I believe that I ma... Read more

Yesterday I felt very sick. Today, I had two court dockets to attend; 9:30 am and 1:00 pm. I decides that I would drive to the morning one, run an errand, come home, and then decide if I felt up to biking back to the afternoon one. DD came home ... Read more
Just keep swimming....
Monday, August 20, 2012      4 comments

Biked 15 miles yesterday, which helped the moodiness some, then had a bout of migraine syndrome, which might explain much of the moodiness. Marginally migrainey this morning--headache is vaguely there, but much more with the nausea and light sen... Read more
