After a comment on my blog I've resolved to buy/use cabbage diet goodies in the hope of conquering the stall out. (Intermittent cycling with high to low cals has not worked and haven't been able to fast.) Even though I have a new plan I wondered... Read more

Dear Diary, I haven't lost significant weight in weeks! I desperately want to lose by slowly cutting calories and doing a lot of house/yard activities. There are three things that I believe could cut through this wall of discouragement. 1. I... Read more
rearranging with free association
Wednesday, June 06, 2012      0 comments

The rearranging that occurs when I come into summer vacation astonishes me. So much of it is automatic; I watch as I do things instantaneously. These are small things of course like moving piping to the garden shed or moving cement to the tool... Read more
muscle and fat
Friday, June 01, 2012      2 comments

Cripes! I used the expensive scale today and learned I've burned muscle and have a higher fat percentage. So, although intermittent fasting is still on the agenda, I think what I call a fast will have to have carbs and some muscle building. G... Read more

crickets, hummingbirds, hawks, and mowing tall grass weeds..NM
Saturday, May 19, 2012      1 comments

Pulling tall grass makes my arms itch, but the tearing out of these plants seems to satisfy me deeply. Years ago I made a small waterfall for my then toddler son and his next door neighbor girl to play beside. I put some amazing rocks around t... Read more

Monday, May 14, 2012      2 comments

Ups and downs and all arounds.. These are days often in persona - mom, colleague, teacher, and watchful neighbor. In the summer the freedom from role playing formats is wonderful. I'm ready to take a break from dream making/ gate keeping and ... Read more

Friday, May 11, 2012      2 comments

I am not an emotionally sober person. I wish I was. I never have been. I am not a drama queen but do have too many "over-the-top" reactions to stimulus. And, I always have. ... Read more

Today I printed the 30 day free pass to Curves and yes, made the appointment. Maybe this will help me overcome my exercise obstinacy. Yesterday I found I walk 13,000 steps ... Read more

I have a quirky relationship with my varied weights. At my highest, 190, I had been given a uterine cancer prognosis and given progesterone which sent my weight soaring. My pregnancy top weight was 188. I have a positive attachment to this. ... Read more

Sunday, May 06, 2012      0 comments

Boy do I have more energy! The bizarro scales with gel in them tell me I'm 65. Well, I'm 52. I suppose I deserve the "real age" prognosis but truthfully I am far more energetic than my teen. I feel more good than bad today regarding my pro... Read more

With almost 15 pounds down, I notice the good changes. My pants and clothes fit a little better. I look a little better naked in the bathroom mirror. I have at least one and a half times more energy. And I feel I've accomplished something that... Read more
