LOST: old habit of unlimited sampling while I cook. I had to taste a couple of things today that aren't from recipes--and it felt downright strange to eat while cooking! LOST: the desire to empty a can of cashews. I counted out a few an... Read more

I am so provoked, both with myself and with sneaky packaging. Here's my story. Today for lunch, I had a delicious can of water-packed sardines (not my preferred packed in olive oil). Yeah, I know; not everyone thinks sardines are worth ... Read more

My status this morning read,"Sableness loves rainy days!" OK, CHATTYKAY, here's what it's like. I awake to the sound of gentle rainfall, droplets dancing on the hibiscus leaves outside the bedroom window. I've slept well, thanks be, and a... Read more

Note to self: be careful what you ask for. You might get it. I told my spiritual director that I was looking for ways to help out my hard-working husband. All the overtime makes it hard for him to keep up with things. As I mentioned in... Read more

This site is truly amazing. The thing I'm noticing most at just over two months and 15 lbs down is how full and satisfied I am within my 1300-1600 calorie range. I'd never have believed that I could eat so well, so much less in some ways and m... Read more
