the Fall...and the fall
Fall is upon us. It means more to those of you that have actual seasons/winter, but even here in Northern CA there's a change in the air.
For me it's a mixed bag - always one of the busiest times of the year for me at work, it's my favorit... Read more
It's been an interesting week...ups and downs, schedule changes...challenges. You know, life.
One interesting thing I faced was a decision about a work related dinner. Part of my job involves social/professional events - dinners, lunches, ... Read more
It's a game of golf...
This go 'round with the whole weight loss thing is different for me.
First, I'm older and wiser (but we won't talk about that - be glad you're making the changes you are now, my 20 and 30 something friends!).
Second, I'm looking at c... Read more
All about the work around....
I have flintstone feet.
You know the kind - flat and wide..could use them to stop the stone wheeled sedan.
As a result I have to be careful with pressure. Not exactly my forte - I'm a guy that has always powered through things. Suck ... Read more
One of my biggest challenges has been to maintain a positive outlook. Yeah, I know, if you're reading this you're probably saying, "yeah, and.....welcome to the club."
The thing is, it's only been in the last few years I've really been hon... Read more
I'm pretty sure it hates me.
Then again, I can't blame it. All I do is walk all over it and complain about the answers.
Seriously I'm not sure what's up with it. I work out, I'm eating right (90% of the time these da... Read more
Owning the binge
I've been at this weight loss thing for years - sometimes with more success than others - and I've read a lot about this diet or that. From no fat to no carbs and everything in between. At the end of the day I believe it's just not that hard and... Read more
The power of a new suit
Well, not new exactly so much as hanging out in my closet. So, like many of you I have a range of clothes hanging in my closet. A few years ago I dropped about 40 pounds and needed suits that fit - so I bought 4 (and I bought them just right or ... Read more
One more time....
It's been a long, long time. I didn't realize it until I looked at the date of the last entry. Wow.
I've been around, just not on the SP social stuff so much. I wish could say I'd met my goal, but that's just not the case. On the upside th... Read more
40 days in the wilderness
Well...close to it....maybe more, maybe less.
Somewhere after July 4th I began to stray from the path of healthy eating. Not completely mind you...but enough that I started feeling crappy. You know the feeling - all slow and frumpy, maybe a... Read more
Summer, fun and guilt free
I've been down the weight loss/gain path so many times very little surprises me anymore. I've been depressed, ecstatic, guilt-ridden and ashamed at different points in my life. Generally negative emotions follow periods of gain or binges. None o... Read more
Well, I made it back from food Mecca
What a city - absolutely loved it. I walked everywhere, saw lots of the French Quarter and riverfront. Took about a 1000 photos (which I am culling and processing down to a reasonable number). Photography is a passion. I'm finding my niche...I'm... Read more
Next big challenge
I travel a lot for work. I've gotten pretty good about watching what I eat on the road, and I'm not shy about asking for changes to menu items....most of the places I end up eating are generally fine with accommodating a wide range of diner's di... Read more
It's funny - I seem to be finding things just as I need them on this program.
I weighed in the other day and was disappointed that the scale didn't move. At the same time I KNOW that it's an unreliable indicator...I know I feel better, my ... Read more
What a week
Food wise, this week was OK....I'm still feeling strong and inspired in my efforts. Work wise started rough but finished strong.
You ever had the experience where you didn't realize how much something was stressing you out until you quit d... Read more
