Life goes on
I have not been very focused on eating healthy or exercise this week.
Husband had minor surgery on his wrist on Weds. He's cranky & the house is a mess (he usually does the dishes). Youngest Daughter turned 17 Thursday AND got her drive... Read more
Learning All the Time
A while back I learned that I really don't like mass-produced bakery cakes. I've been eating them at parties for years and somehow never noticed! I've decided not to eat them any more. On the other hand, the scratch yellow cake my daughter ma... Read more
Today WILL be a better day!
My breakfast was reasonably balanced, my tea should alleviate my caffeine-withdrawl headache soon, I'm dropping the daughter off at school then headed for the ferry.
One of the things I LOVE about my part ... Read more
Can I go back to bed?
I had a GREAT time last night catching up with an old friend. Good conversation, great food, nice place. (I had baked halibut and asparagus rissoto.) I even got a new haircut earlier in the day that I like. So why do I feel so crappy and cra... Read more
Water OUCH! Walking OUCH!

I've lost about 10 lbs. in the last couple of weeks. And I'm feeling the urge to sabotage myself. Guess I still have some issues to work through!
I'm staying on track but there is an annoying voice in the back of my head saying, "You can'... Read more
Note to Self
After a couple of weeks of attempting to eat right, we had a busy day and plain forgot to plan for dinner. The bathrooms and carpet look and smell marvelous! Unfortunately, nothing in the cupboard or freezer was appealing and we ran out for te... Read more
Living with Lap Band
It is interesting living with someone who has had lap band. My husband had his put in a few years ago and rapidly lost 85 lbs. He's mostly kept it off, but stalled before reaching his goal weight.
He regained some by cheating the band, ... Read more

I'm apparently too tall!
Swimsuit arrived today. It was adorable! It fit perfectly, or it would have if I were 4'11' instead of 5'7". I know we get shorter as we age, but I don't think I'll save this one for later.

I guess it's real :-)
Well, the scale still shows those 6 lbs gone so I guess it's real.

6 lbs down
According to the scale, I'm down 6 lbs. I'm pleased (and sent myself a Goodie to celebrate) but I also know that it's easier to loose from a high weight than a lower one, and it's REALLY easy to gain it back. Heck, this could all be water, but... Read more
Like the rest of America, I have no sense of portion size. Super size me? For a buck extra? Sure!
One of the things I LOVE about the sparkpeople nutrition tracker, at least the Type 2 diabetic version, is that is breaks down calories/nut... Read more
