Eat to Live book - Dr. Joel Fuhrman

Yesterday's Discouragement Lead into Today's Additional Weight Loss
What a difference a day makes! (yes, I'm singing it) I'm reading the "Eat to Live" book again. This time, it's sinking in.
Loving these cooler temps, but heat wave is predicted for next week.
Wishing all a wonderful day.

Happy New Year
Wishing all who celebrate this new year a wonderful one. I'm making it my new year as well.
I'm discouraged today and wondering why I'm bothering to do this healthy stuff. Too much work for a body that loses so slowly.
Have a happy... Read more
Another LB Gone, and I Feel Lighter
It's now a total of 8 in since a month and a half ago when I started food tracking. I can't believe that, after all these years on SP, I was so resistant to tracking. Honestly, I thought I was making great choices. NOPE. I actually can feel ... Read more
Trampoline, Juicing, Sugar Blues (the film)
I assembled my mini-trampoline and like it a lot. It was inexpensive and not really super-bouncy, but good for my purposes for light cardio. I figured I'd spend very little now, but if I love it, I can eventually upgrade. The last one I had, ... Read more
NSV Made Me Realize I Should be Measuring Instead of Weighing
Yesterday I received an effusive NSV, a compliment that raved on about my looking slim. Actually slim. I'm convinced that these (I had one about a month ago that was similar) have a lot to do with the illusion that clothing creates. I definit... Read more
You mean I actually have to use this stuff? (smiling)
Now that I have received my new juicer, I look at it and smile. You mean, no one is going to make the juices for me? No one is going to clean up after each use?
Okay, I'm joking. Kinda. With everything, there is effort and work involv... Read more
Juicer Arriving Today, Weekend Order Exercyle & mini tramp, Misc.
Yes, my juicer arrives today. I've been through this rodeo before, but this time I'm going to try an experiment. I think. I've also got to research what to do with the pulp. I think I can use it in my smoothies. We'll see. I'm excited to s... Read more
Credit Freeze, Super Juice Me film, Food As Medicine film, Stress Eating
After the facts of the hacking into the credit bureau (Equifax?) last week, I decided to freeze my credit reports with all three companies. I can unfreeze them, when needed; meanwhile, it gives a bit of peace of mind. I try to keep close tabs ... Read more
THANK YOU, FRIENDS. SURGERY SUCCESS.
I want to thank and cyber hug all of you for your positive thoughts and prayers. Surgery was fast and successful and he's on his way home. Thank you, God. (smiling) It was a huge kidney stone. Eating habits and water drinking have got to cha... Read more
After accompanying my family member to Urology appointment yesterday, he is now scheduled for surgery today. I am stressed, worried, and have spent 6 hours in the past two days at medical establishments with him. I am thankful that there's ano... Read more
Cancer Can Be Killed Documentary
I saw this yesterday and am awed and amazed. If you can find it, I'd be interested in hearing what you think.
I'll be accompanying my family member to the Urologist's office this afternoon. His 9mm kidney stone is causing him excruciati... Read more
ER, 9/11 and Misc.
I still shed tears on 9/11 and part of my broken heart never mended from all the tragedy. Especially when they read the names and show the people jumping out of the buildings. And all of the first responders who've gotten sick and died since t... Read more
Smaller Portions, Slower Eating, and More Stress Reduction
These are what I'm going to be working on for the rest of the month - and probably year! (or maybe the rest of my life, whichever comes first - smiling) The stress reduction is important but tricky.
I've blogged about a relative's health i... Read more

Scale Must Be Broken. It Indicates I'm Down another 3 lbs!!!!!
Before I get too excited, I have to figure out if this is an accurate scale at this point. Besides food tracking started a month ago, which helped start this downward trend, I am also doing so much better limiting starches (I love me my breads,... Read more
