The Lightness of Being
I feel lighter today. Despite whatever number comes up on the scale next week for my weigh-in, my body is showing signs of change and responding well to my healthier regimen. Feeling very optimistic that things are starting to head in the righ... Read more
I found this unusual drink at my health-oriented grocery store and it was marked down enough to give it a try. It's not every day that one runs into a drink like this. It's 70 calories a cup,and tastes kinda like non-fat milk with a slightly n... Read more
Assessing April Goals & Setting One for May
My April goal has been a total success and a lot easier than I imagined it would be. After a lifelong habit of eating at night (any time of night and sometimes another meal), I've managed this 26 day streak of absolutely nothing at night. Thou... Read more
Sing Along with Me...At lasssst...
WOOOOOOOHOOOOOO! 4 LBS DOWN! Must be a miracle! Got a new scale and I joked with the cashier yesterday that if it didn't give me the numbers I wanted, I'd bring it back for a refund. (smiling)
After whining yesterday, guess what? 4 lbs d... Read more

Sunshine Makes Me Happy
That's why I moved to a sunny city decades ago. I knew, even as a child, that sunshine had a direct effect on my well being. Cost of living is high, but the sun is shining brightly so who's complaining?

Hula Hoop Update
Since my hoop arrived a couple of weeks ago, I've only had a few chances to use it as I've been preoccupied with this dang water main leak that they can't locate. (smiling) Now that it's rained, it's going to be awhile for the ground to dry and... Read more
2 Major Thought Breakthroughs - #2
The other day I semi-whined in a blog about the scale indicating no loss after a week of amazing exercise and eating. During my daily walk that day, I realized that I had written in that blog "why bother?" when I know very well the many reasons... Read more
2 Major Thought Breakthroughs - #1
It's one thing to read a platitude or cliche and shake my head with that "so true" agreement, and quite another when it clicks and becomes reality for you. Having read that "the past doesn't equal the future" time and again, it rang true but ne... Read more

The 4 Really's
The other day, I caught a snippet of one of Wayne Dyer's tapes and it stuck with me. A few blogs ago, I wrote that you have to want this weight loss so badly that you can taste it.
Dyer explained the four really's this way... When you re... Read more
The Water Leak Saga Continues
After a week of non-stop plumbing estimates for this water main line, meeting with insurance guy, and assorted other "experts" coming over to give me info, I feel like I'm in the middle of a Stephen King novel.
First of all, for all of us w... Read more
Have You Noticed This About Goal Attainment?
I've noticed that, once I achieve small goals, it seems easier to achieve others that are bigger. It's like momentum and being on a roll. Seems that one goal met provides the tenacity for others. Conversely, once I get back into one bad habit... Read more
No Scale. Scale. No Scale. Scale.
No Scale. Until I began this healthy lifestyle adventure, I didn't own a scale. Never needed to. Then, about seven years ago, many factors started adding bulk to my bones - overwork, less activity, hormonal changes, stress, etc. Suddenly, for... Read more
Leaks, Estimates, Stress & Mega-Bills
Today started out with what was supposed to be a simple repair to the lawn sprinkler. Guy comes, finds the leak is not something he can do. Still have to pay him for his two hours.
Then two plumbers' estimates. Whoopee! Turns out to be ... Read more
