I had spinal surgery years ago, and it was a success. Knock on wood, no real problems to speak of. A few years ago I slipped on black ice and had to have arthroscopy on the knee. Again, no real problems to speak of. Only real issue is ... Read more
The scale

I’m having love/hate affair with my scale. The honeymoon is over (the initial weightloss), now comes the real relationship. I go to the scale every morning hoping for a kind word. Sometimes IT rewards me, sometimes It ignores m... Read more

I was raised on SALT. A lot of it. Some life long habits are harder to break than others. And you know the drill. Today’s food manufactures still use way too much in their processing. The nutrition journal really showed me just how... Read more

Realizing How Clueless I was about Portion Control
Friday, January 29, 2010      5 comments

The more I use the food journal the more I realize that I have been overeating for years. It’s not just about sweets and snacks. The more I learn, the more I see that I have to measure even the ‘healthy’ stuff. Now I see that what I th... Read more
