New Year's Reflection
This is what I wrote for my Jan 2nd personal reflection at church.
Today, weíre talking about letting go. I feel like I havenít let anything go in my life. Like Jacob Marley, Iím dragging around every habit or bad behavior... Read more
My First Day as Worship Associate
I was Worship Associate this Sunday at church, sort of like a Deacon. I wrote my piece on Why Bad Things Happen, and it was very well-received. In fact, everyone was so generous in their support that I think I got more out of it than I gave! ... Read more
NON-WL: My first Worship Associate Assignment
NON-WL means Non-Weight Loss related. :-) Just because it's on my mind.
This year I was accepted to be a Worship Associate at my congregation (I am Unitarian Universalist. uua.org if you want to know what that is). We help to run the se... Read more
This has been a long year so far in terms of my health plans. Two surgeries can put a damper on your exercise. And the eating wasn't far behind.
So, to get myself back on track, I have to start with my head. To do that, I started seeing ... Read more
What I Learned at the Nutritionist Yesterday
At the nutritionist yesterday we made a couple of tweaks to the plan I had been following (Food Lovers), but nothing major. I just have to get back on track, which I did today fairly well. I have to work out some kinks, but I'll get there. Ev... Read more
Not sure why I can't get myself together. I'm frustrated and tired of not being able to do what I know I need to do. How did I do it in the first place when I started last year? Obviously I need something - help, better organization, somethi... Read more

Something about the Spring
It's probably the light, but it could also be the fresher air, but like everything else in nature, I start to come back to life in the spring.
I've started tracking again. I'm getting in more water. I'm getting more exercise. It's a sl... Read more
A lovely day
We went to Long Branch (a beach) today. Walked around, flew the kite, enjoyed the gorgeous weather. Jack played on the jetty and Liam actually held the kite for a while (awesome! He usually just likes to watch and not participate). I tracked... Read more
I've had to postpone my surgery until Paul gets back from his father's funeral - which means it's now in May because that was pretty much the only time I could have done it in April. Not a big deal, but it extends the time we're in a bit of uph... Read more
HCR - Nutritional Info required on Chain Menu's
The health bill President Barack Obama signed into law Tuesday requires that restaurant chains post calorie counts for all the food items they sel... Read more
coming up on a year
I'm about a month away from my one year anniversary on SP. It has really made a huge difference in my life. But I'm noticing that I have fallen so far away from all of the good things I was doing for myself, if sporadically. It's as though I'... Read more
Gallbladder has got to go
Unfortunately, it turns out I have to have my gallbladder out. I am getting used to the idea now, but it's kind of hard to go from never having a gallbladder problem, to having to have it removed it 24 hours.
Fortunately, I didn't have to ... Read more
Since it doesn't end, you just gotta laugh
So, on top of feeling like caca (accent on the second a) for most of February and having that little surgery, there is a new wrinkle! I got the clearance from my surgery doc that I can exercise again and started doing so. Lower body leg lifts,... Read more
Thursday, March 11
Thanks for your support, everyone. After I posted yesterday, I did one of the boot camp videos. I had a salad (and French Fries) for lunch, but just getting some healthy food in me is a good start. I drank a bit more water.
After I write... Read more
