It's been a really busy, but fun weekend. Went out on Friday with a new guy - a cop -and had a really good time. Just might see that one again! Didn't get home until 2 am, but got up at 6:20 to take my brother treasure-hunting. Found some fu... Read more
For My Brother...
I wouldn't normally be involved in any kind of solicitation activities, but this is not for me. My brother is really worried about how he's going to be able to continue to pay for his chemo co-payments, so I created a Facebook page to help him.... Read more
Affirmation - It's OK to Bask a Little!
Yesterday I was feeling a little "pouty." The night before I had relapsed and ate some chips. First time in 4 months! But I had on one of my favorite yellow dresses and, well, I "think" I looked kinda' good in it. So I asked my co-worker to ... Read more
Pouting Today...I Ate Chips Last Night :(
It wasn't a ton, but it was CHIPS. Such things have not passed my lips since March 1st - and I don't know why I ate them, but I did. They were yukky. I felt yukky. I feel yukky today for letting myself down. I didn't exercise last night an... Read more
Thank You, Sir, May I Have Another?
So... my daughter called me last night and says she wants to come home. She may be 3 months pregnant (not sure since she has fabricated pregnancies numerous times in the past). She was crying and said she was tired of being with people who use... Read more
Today's Blog is Brought to You by the Word WHOLISTIC
Thanks to my good buddy Fit_Groovy_Gurl for todays' inspiration. This is not just about food, it's WHOLISTIC!
See, I kind of got the food thing going pretty good here. I consistently eat within my calorie range (except sometimes too low) ... Read more
Feeling REALLY tired, but that's my fault. I have an underactive thyroid and I HAVE to be on medication for that for the rest of my life. I know this, but let my prescription lapse and was off meds for over a week - and I can tell. I get real... Read more
All or Not At All

I GOT THIS.... Read more

1. Cook breakfast for me and my brothe... Read more
Is It OK Just to Shine?
Well... guess I'm having some sort of identity crisis this week. Can't call it a mid-life crisis.... been having one of those since 2003 and I have NO intention of giving THAT up yet (lol).
Just not sure, all of a sudden, where I am goin... Read more
Just Some Feelings....
I have figured out that one of my biggest issues in the past was NOT talking about feelings... letting things simmer below the surface and then stuffing it down with food. So, I need to talk. It's two VERY different issues and I'm going to do ... Read more
Really Starting to Show!
People are really starting to notice - but it's so funny. I still am suspicious when they say nice things. "They probably don't mean it." or "No, don't say it, because it won't last." or "What if tomorrow I DON'T look like I've lost weight?"... Read more
Swimming... HOLY COW!
I lost 5 more pounds this week.... the most I've lost in one week for a long time. I've been losing an average of 1.5 pounds per week, so this was a huge (and welcome!) surprise! The only thing I did different was to do swimming (every day for... Read more
A Week of Stress... and I STILL GOT THIS.
This week has DEFINITELY been crazy busy and full of stress! I was off from my regular job, but doing a federal contract job for the week. Basically it required LOTS of reading of really boring (but important) stuff, then at least 2 phone conf... Read more
I'm Still Here!
Still doing the contract job but ALMOST finished. Boys got home last night. Kat (friend from Turkey) got here and our friend Sayer came over as well. We all went to Aladdin's Eatery for dinner (very healthy menu!) and laughed ourselves silly.... Read more
