Refuse to Regain: Chapter Three
I read chapter 3, When Fat is Fatal: Metabolic Syndrome and Other Nasties, right before I went to bed. Not a good idea really. Berkeley states that she is trying to scare you. She tells you all - or certainly a lot - of ways that fat can hurt yo... Read more
Refuse to Regain: Chapter Two
The second chapter is entitled "Become a Warrior: Banish Guilt and Commit Yourself "(page 15). Some of my favorite quotes:
"you will relapse unless you decide to make a real commitment to maintenance." (15)
"guilt has no place in maintena... Read more
Refuse to Regain: Chapter One
There is a whole lot of me that just wants to turn the pages and get to the 12 tough rules that start on page 109. However, I am trying to learn to be more patient, so I will read every word. Promise.
Chapter One is "The Maintenance Junior.... Read more
I'm starting slowly with Refuse to Regain because I've got a million things (perhaps a slight exaggeration) going on.
I loved the introduction because Berkeley calls us, the maintainers, the experts about ourselves. She says to read this b... Read more
Another Maintenance-Psoriasis Update
Yes, I know I started reading Refuse to Regain and I promised blogs. But I'm really, really involved in an anti-psoriasis book that is difficult reading,very technical, between long hours of child care. So forgive me. I will definitely blog tha... Read more
Works For Me!
I started the book Refuse to Regain and it's just on time. Did not like the number on the scale this morning. There was an 8, not a .8, an 8. Oh, there was a 1 and a 2. But I'm not saying or writing that number. I had not seen a number that high... Read more
Going to Do It!
One of the best thing Matt Ludwig, my psoriasis mentor, said to me yesterday, was to remember that The Ph Miracle book that he swears by was written for average people. I had cried when I read the chapter on exercise, advocating light exercise, ... Read more
Mentoring session today (re: psoriasis) was incredible! I took lots of notes and will need to digest it. It was suppose to be a 90 minute session, but he stayed 150 minutes, and would have stayed longer but hubby and I needed to leave to go to a... Read more
Not Much Today
My psoriasis mentor is coming tomorrow. I need to re-read his publication, finish my list of questions for him, prepare a healthy lunch for us (and that means getting to the grocery store, too), and straighten the house a bit. So forgive me if I... Read more
Been busy, busy, busy, but good. Weighed 124.0 this morning, so not continuing to lose. Think I've plateau-ed. Part of me wanted to get down to 122, since that was my predicted best running weight (per Matt Fitzgerald's online calculator) at my ... Read more
BIG Thanks to My Great SparkFriend, Gaye!
An amazing good thing happened several weeks ago and I didn't blog about it. I kind of just stood there with my mouth gaping open. My great SparkFriend, GABY1948, Gaye, sent me a book. I had even forgotten I'd given her my address, so I was tota... Read more
Good Six Months
I washed out of the Parents' Day Challenge on the At Goal & Maintaining Plus .... SP Team. I fell below my goal range target. I had set my center weight at 129, having completed the previous 2 nine-week challenges successfully at 132 and then 13... Read more

Breakfast on May 14, 2015:
Flax Seed Meal (ground flax), 2 tbsp ⊗ 70 4 5 3 4
Romaine Lettuce (sa... Read more
Beck Blue: Chapter 5, Food Pusher Traps
Some food pushers you can easily put off by "No, thank you," but others are more insistent.
