Monday, February 22, 2010      10 comments

My stash of "adult" toys is not what you think. (smiling) It's really a bunch of, well, toys. I decided to buy something new to help when I need a break from the computer, work, and overall stress. I selected bubbles in three colors that... Read more

My Stick Out of Quicksand - An Ode to Sparkfriends' Support

Sunday, February 21, 2010      7 comments

After going on a bender yesterday, and rebelling by blog like a smirky teen, I was going to go list my huddles as "I need support." But like any good little recovering food junkie, I've still got that wee bit (okay maybe more than that) of deni... Read more

Okay, so I'm Slip-Sliding Away

Saturday, February 20, 2010      10 comments

Yes, I had a ton of apricot strudel today. And don't feel at all guilty about it. And every bite was delicious. Why am I rebelling? For one thing, even though I try like mad not to let this plateau get to me - some days it really does. ... Read more

Wednesday, February 17, 2010      8 comments

Just some random thoughts for the day. Just got in from a sunshine walk and am sweaty and thinking of all the things I should be doing, but haven't been because my internal engine is stalled out. Maybe forever. So, I'm thinking of what my opt... Read more

How Many Day 1's Can I Seriously Create?

Tuesday, February 16, 2010      9 comments

As I took out a new journal notebook to carefully outline my thoughts on Day 1, I had to smile at myself. Sometimes I'm too much even for myself to handle! (smiling) In trying to break habits, one in particular, I have sincerely had so man... Read more

Monday, February 15, 2010      11 comments

Last week, when my little baby Harry went to the vet for his eye infection, he was weighed. He's a hefty 10 lbs. (William, his brother, is a feather by contrast. He must weigh 4, if that.) When I hold Harry, I get tired. Then I remember... Read more

Training Wheels

Friday, February 12, 2010      11 comments

I was determined to break the freeze between me and my estranged scale (which I divorced about a month ago). What a great surprise to see that I've maintained my 34 lb. loss. Yes, I would like to get busy with the rest of the 16 lbs and ... Read more

Dusting Off My Estranged Scale

Wednesday, February 10, 2010      14 comments

About a month ago, I blogged that I was divorcing my scale. Guess I meant business because yesterday I smiled to see it is a bit dusty from lack of use. Long story short, up until the time when I started this healthier lifestyle (October 0... Read more
