As I wrote in my previous blog, I've eaten my way through this past three months of sadness and grieving, despite knowing better. I've postponed the dreaded scale as I could feel each pound that arrived during that time. Well, this morni... Read more

Saturday, September 25, 2010      4 comments

I remember when the small spiral became a huge avalanche. It was last October. I blogged about how I went to see Lion King, and before the show, had a great dinner at a fabulous restaurant. It entailed a memorable dessert. I remember wri... Read more

Wednesday, September 22, 2010      8 comments

Not that I'd wish this type of longevity on myself with the life I've had (smiling), but what a sweet little man. (Plus, whatever time is in store for me, it might be good to take heed.) He's 114 years old, and I heard his sweet voice on the ra... Read more

Monday, August 16, 2010      7 comments

A brief history...I only started drinking coffee as an adult. In recent years, even a half of a small mug daily makes me feel yucky. So, about four months ago, I did a great detox for 95 days until I realized that the green tea I'd been drinki... Read more
My Lucky Day
Friday, August 13, 2010      6 comments

Friday the 13th is usually my lucky day. I think we make our own luck, to a certain extent. Guess I should go buy a lottery ticket and go to a casino. Nope, my idea of good luck is the good health I enjoy and the love of family and friends... Read more
The Journey Stopped Being Fun about A Year Ago
Thursday, August 12, 2010      8 comments

Yes, SP site is fun. Nice people, reinforcement of good habits, etc. However, this dratted plateau has gone on forever, and I've gotten advice out of the kazoo (ouch!), which I've tried and tried. My body does not want to part with any mo... Read more
