Oh Boy. Streaking Again
I really have been struggling lately and the way I look and feel reflect the lack of effort I've put into getting and staying healthy. I'm pretty much back to my highest weight of recent memory and would say that I to be in a good, healthy spot,... Read more
Seeing old friends today
At a friend/family celebration this morning, I saw some friends who I love dearly, but don't get to see very often. They give me big hugs and love right back, and it just feels wonderful to catch up with friends who you feel so close to.

My consistent ups and downs
There are many times when I have been successful with getting into really good shape. When I got there, I don't think I appreciated my accomplishments and how challenging it is. I mean, I know that I had struggles getting there, but I got there ... Read more
11th day of my current NoS Streak
It's been an up and down ride so far on this streak. Yesterday was a reasonable day because I was out of the house for most of it at an off site meeting. I work from home, and I think that while there are benefits to that, it's not so great for ... Read more
Back home, back on SP: Not scary this time
The title of my last blog referred to coming back to SP as being 'scary' after lots of activity, and then taking a long SP break.
This time is different. I have been away from home for about 5 weeks. I was working at a sleep aw... Read more

Two videos to share re: Food Addiction & Diet
Hi all! Happy new year!
There are two videos I've seen in the last day that I'd like to share and hear your comments on.

Is there ever a better or worse time to fall off track?
So, in the grand scheme of things, my 'falling off track', assuming that I get solidly back on track today, the first N day of the week, I haven't fallen so far. However, this is a week of extended family time and bathing suit weather and 'all y... Read more
The big picture story is that I feel like I am in more control and have a more healthy relationship with food than I think maybe I ever have. NoS is a big part of why. That being said, I am still a work in progress and while I'm not bingeing on ... Read more
Tightening the Screws is working
I did it! Yesterday was a success even with being home with kids ALL DAY because of the weather. We have another no school snow day today. It's not Midwest or Buffalo snow, in fact, in my area (suburbs of Washington DC), they cancel school befor... Read more
Tightening the Screws
I've been maintaining my weight lately which I think is a good thing, not a bad thing. I look at it as maintaining and not plateauing because by using NoS and other checks and balances I have in place, I know full well when I'm giving it all I'v... Read more
Going to a life celebration tomorrow
A cousin of mine died suddenly earlier this week. He was in his mid 60s and had a wife and a young adult son. We didn't see this cousin often, but we used to spend time at the beach each summer awhile back. He was a mild mannered, laid back, swe... Read more
It's always 4:15pm somewhere...
It's about 4:15pm here, and this is a challenging time of day for me, especially when I'm trying to get back to 'success' after a few not so clean days. I'm being very mindful and keeping my long term goals of getting to a healthier place and ge... Read more
No Excuses No Excuses No Excuses
No excuses, just a confession. I messed up royally with my food choices.
Cookies, chocolate and stuff I haven't eaten or craved eating in awhile.
I'm sorry. I'm sorry because it takes me farther from my goals. I'm sorry because it do... Read more
