No to Carbs. No to patterns.

Sunday, December 21, 2014      3 comments

Recently my husband and I had a contretemps about something, the specific of which, neither of us now remember, but we both reacted from our old patterns. And these are patterns that just arise and one finds oneself having the same reaction and... Read more

Spin the Wheel! Get points! It actually works for me.

As you might know, I have been having big changes the last two months - my husband and I decided to downsize to an apartment from our large house and it has been busy busy busy. My step-daughter wanted to come for a final visit in our old place... Read more

I'm cold! Another tale of missing the big picture

Tuesday, November 11, 2014      2 comments

Recently it got cold here in Virginia and on that day it was also very windy. We went for our morning river walk. I wore my nice polartech coat from past years and a hat and gloves. But halfway through the walk I got thoroughly chilled. Walk... Read more

Ooops forgot - it's not just the scale

Friday, October 31, 2014      5 comments

On our morning walk today I told my husband about my blog post about 'holding steady' rather than losing. I also mentioned that I was a bit surprised that so many of last winter's clothes didn't fit, since I had lost a good bit of weight by the... Read more

Plateau or Holding Steady - attitude shift!

Tuesday, October 28, 2014      4 comments

Awhile back after a FatFast I hit my goal. I always would say 'first goal' because, of course, I liked the idea of going 10 pounds lower. I have spent a lot of my life waiting for and going for those extra '10 pounds'. About a week afte... Read more

Moving forward and literally, moving

Wednesday, October 08, 2014      3 comments

I shared my mixed emotions about downsizing our house and moving to an apartment in our same city. In the end, I have made a sea-change and I'm not only totally on board with it all, I'm raring to go. We returned to the new apt complex and loo... Read more

Emerging to Balance

Saturday, September 20, 2014      2 comments

Thanks for everyone's support. I finally got myself to a balanced place and shared with my husband all the feelings that emerged. A friend gave me a good insight when I said that I really didn't understand the pressure he felt about the mainte... Read more

Feeling stalled, stuck and confined

Thursday, September 18, 2014      5 comments

So this is a bit of a venting blog. I've been trying to let my emotions realign themselves, but I keep getting caught in their swirls. I had a 1 pound gain this week and realize I have been in a 'stall' for quite awhile. I reached goal af... Read more

My Lovely Spark People Blog Book

Wednesday, September 10, 2014      5 comments

Awhile ago I wrote that I was creating a paperback book of my first year of blog posts at Sparkpeople. I did just that and here is how it turned out, I'm so glad I did. It's quite interesting and sometimes evocative to browse through it and ... Read more

Too much info!

I'm an "Atkins' person, old school high protein/high fat, low carbs. This approach has always worked for me, maintaing a healthy weight, feeling lots of energy, just working for me. Several times over the years, I have gone off this approach b... Read more

Travel Tales

Thursday, September 04, 2014      3 comments

Just spent 2 1/2 weeks in Oregon. A few days in southern Oregon where my son and daughter-in-law live, a couple days on the Coast and then in Portland - land of good coffee, restaurants and craft beer. The 'taster' size of beer is perfect for... Read more

Tomorrow I'm off to Oregon to visit my son and daughter-in-law, travel a bit on the wonderful Oregon coast and spend some quality big-city-time in Portland. I'm not feeling any stress about staying in my groove. My food choices are just my ch... Read more

Keeping On and Comfortable in My Own Skin

Saturday, August 02, 2014      3 comments

I used the old school Atkins Fat Fast to break a long plateau and reach my first goal, but I have gained a couple pounds right after, lost one and am maintaining there. And yet, I feel okay with it all. To break the plateau I increased ... Read more
