I really enjoyed a shopping trip today. I had not been shopping for a couple months. Today I bought a great new outfit, after trying on lots of clothes. I've missed regular shopping. I used to shop weekly after my Weight Watcher Saturday weigh i... Read more

Last Friday I was celebrating that I still feel thrilled about my weight loss. Yesterday I reported I wasn't feeling it so much. Maybe now I know why. This morning I woke up with a cold. I'm trying to fight it off and maybe it won't settle ... Read more
The Thrill is Not Gone
Thursday, November 04, 2010      12 comments

Perhaps I'm feeling a little down right now because I've been so in a state of being thrilled with my weight loss that I can't stay that excited about it forever. The thrill is not gone, but it is a bit diminished. I've got to think about ... Read more

Even though I really enjoyed my visit with my mom two weeks ago, I had a realization. When I saw how much butter she used to cook chopped broccoli, I was shocked. Honestly it might have been equal amounts. She also was very heavy on the salt sh... Read more

I sewed up a hole where the seam had split and spot cleaned the icee out of it. Although the Fall Festival this afternoon took a toll on Natalie's Alice in Wonderland costume, when I was done, it was good as new. Such an honor to be the trusted ... Read more
Is That Me in the Mirror?
Friday, October 29, 2010      13 comments

Every morning I wake up and look in the mirror. There is still, even after about a year at BMI 20.2-21, a certain amount of surprise. It's not really that I expect to see me fat again, it is more like I don't have an image of myself right now t... Read more

I just answered trivia questions 67, 68, and 69 for the month. I don't show up on the leaderboards because I was gone for a week and many, many people have answered more questions than I. However, this is the first month that on day 28 I am stil... Read more

Glad to report that mom is doing better than I had feared. I wish to heavens she lived much closer. Having her half a continent away is not good for either of us at this point, but she is competent and I don't think that situation will change, d... Read more
Do you shower before gym? Clean before the maid?
Saturday, October 16, 2010      18 comments

This morning I woke up and my plans were to go to the gym within a couple hours. It somehow seemed silly, but I had this overwhelming desire to take a shower. So I did. I went to the gym clean, did my strength training and then an hour of Zumba.... Read more

I'm getting ready to fly to Tucson on Monday to visit my elderly mother. I hope to be some help to her as we review her situation. I am debating whether to track my food while I'm gone or not. I'll only be gone five days. Could take my Wei... Read more

Holiday Weight Gain Not Inevitable
Wednesday, October 13, 2010      12 comments

I was thinking that I better lose a pound or two in preparation for the holidays. I know I've read that the average American gains 15 pounds or 10 pounds or 5 pounds (depending on what you are reading) between Halloween and New Year's. Many year... Read more

Tuesday, October 12, 2010      15 comments

I just went to edit my SparkPage and saw a surprising number. It says in the lower left hand corner that my SparkPage has been viewed 9,496 times! That is amazing. Of course, I look at it fairly often, but that is not all me. Did you know ... Read more
