The Best Friends in the World

Thursday, October 25, 2012      17 comments

SP has the nicest people on it. I want to thank everyone who commented on my blog yesterday, The Good News First. You were so kind and supportive. I did adjust my scale up 5 pounds and now it shows me just at 200. That is better than the 20... Read more

The Good News First

Wednesday, October 24, 2012      13 comments

The good news is I saw my doctor and my blood pressure is now normal! No special diet, no more salt-is-a-no-no, no meds! That's great. Of course, losing 15% of my body weight and doing regular exercise is a big part of that. And eating more heal... Read more

Not Going to Make a Habit of This

Tuesday, October 23, 2012      7 comments

Yesterday I went over my calorie limit. That is the first time in about 5 months! But I have been eating near the lower end of the range for several days. After I went to bed I had trouble sleeping and was hungry. Not just appetite but really hu... Read more

Southern California usually needs rain. This weekend we have gotten it, and I'm enjoying every drop. Yesterday it was a slow drizzle that didn't interrupt my bike ride. last night there were gentle showers, and a few more today with breaks that ... Read more

Facing Down the Buffet

Saturday, October 20, 2012      13 comments

After worship service I often go out with a bunch of friends to have lunch. We usually go to the outdoor food court at a nearby shopping center but because of the rain [drizzle, really] a couple of people wanted to go to Soup Plantation. I... Read more

Down a Pants Size!!

Friday, October 19, 2012      9 comments

Well, the scale hasn't moved and the measuring tape isn't due to come out until the first of next month, but I went shopping for clothes today because I had some time before I was to meet a friend. The closet is looking kind of thin since the fa... Read more

Adventures in Public Transit

Thursday, October 18, 2012      13 comments

Sometimes I take the bus and/or trolley. It helps if I have to go downtown to not have to pay for parking [and remember where I left the car]. When I go to my eye doctor I never know when he will dilate my eyes, so I take the bus, trolley and a ... Read more

Fashion Show

Wednesday, October 17, 2012      9 comments

The underwear had reached a critical point--I was wearing the last clean panties and bra. So I did laundry this morning. After I put away the clean clothes I admired the still-vacant space in my closet and drawers. More vacant space was left tha... Read more

Lost My Nerve

Tuesday, October 16, 2012      9 comments

After joining SP I broke down and bought myself a bathroom scale. It is a cheap one. In fact, the cheapest one I could find. And I have to take it out on my porch to weigh myself because the landlady has carpet throughout my tiny apartment--even... Read more

Clothes: Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them!

Sunday, October 14, 2012      13 comments

It was bound to happen. With all the other things getting too big: blouses, pants, shoes. Now my bra is too big. I was always generously endowed, so I'm not worried about it. But I've adjusted the straps, set the hooks to the tightest. And... Read more

The Joy of Giving

Saturday, October 13, 2012      7 comments

I gave my beautiful navy blue dress to a friend today. It was a great feeling: to bless her with a new-to-her outfit, to weed out of my closet clothes that don't fit, and to know that I'm doing it because I have been successful at losing pounds ... Read more

Walking Across a Plateau

Friday, October 12, 2012      10 comments

Okay. I'm really happy to be in Onederland. But I'd really like to move away from the border. It's a terrific feeling weighing less than I have in 10 years. But I'd like to go down to what I weighed 15-20 years ago. Not that it was an ideal weig... Read more

Restaurants Sabotage Careful Eating

Thursday, October 11, 2012      11 comments

I had a great meal at Applebee's with my friend yesterday, but i was so glad that I checked out the nutritional info online before I went. The 7 oz. house steak was not on the menu so I asked our waitress about it. She said, yes, they have it bu... Read more

Applebee's Fit & Healthy Choices

Wednesday, October 10, 2012      8 comments

I'm going to a movie with a friend today. She wants to see Frankenweenie. Okay. She's my friend. I'll go along. After the movie we usually go out to lunch. She is on Weight Watchers, so she likes Applebees and there is one near the theater.... Read more

Goodbye Beautiful Navy Blue Dress

Tuesday, October 09, 2012      22 comments

Last night I wore my beautiful navy blue dress with the white lace collar for the last time. It has lovely, slimming lines. It's long enough that I can get away without stockings or pantyhose and I always get lots of compliments when I wear it. ... Read more
