Frankenstein was the Doctor, Not the Monster
When this storm was named "Frankenstorm" it reminded me that we are a nation of non-readers. The monster in the book was not Frankinstein, it was the doctor.
But, small details as a rose by any other name... as Shakespeare wrote. In this ... Read more
4 lbs Down
For the past four years, I remained on a plateau after losing 30. No matter what I did, no movement on the scale.
So, I decided to shock my body and implemented a severe plan for November which I started early on Saturday. I have another ... Read more
A HUGE SHOCKER, BUT HAPPY ENDING
Today I am starting a big experiment for November - starting early. In preparation for that, I knew I'd have to get on the scale, which I haven't done for several weeks.
Usually weigh in mornings, I did it at night this time and nearly f... Read more

DO YOU SNORE?
About six years ago, due to a number of factors, I gained weight for the first time in my life. Overweight. With the extra pounds came a bunch of things I'd never experienced before - knee pain, etc. And how shocked I was to discover I'd star... Read more
TRP NEARLY BROKE MY SUGAR STREAK
After something like 79 sugar-free days, I told a friend that it was no problem having the Halloween candy where I could see it every day. That I've had no sugar cravings and was now totally in control. (smiling)
I bought candy that would n... Read more
Juicing at $420 Month???!
I recently watched the film "Fat Sick and Nearly Dead" for the second time over the past 1.5 years. They estimate that juicing costs about $420 to maintain for a month. Seems like you can do it for a lot less than that, don't you think?

Seeds of Suggestion
It made me smile over the weekend, when I realized how seeds that I planted 1.5 years ago have started to grow into beautiful somethings.
Specifically, around that time, I watched "Fat Sick and Nearly Dead" for the first time. I remember t... Read more

CLEAVAGE HEAT RASH...HELP!
I've tried a number of remedies for this heat-inducted rash at cleavage. Burned myself pretty badly the other night with "natural" remedy as I used undiluted oregano oil on it. Still itching like mad even though skin is healing from burn.

To soy or not to soy...
... that is the question. There's been so much controversy around soy, that I really don't know whether to include it in my life or not. I'd switched to whey awhile ago, but just wondered what your thoughts are.
Anyone have an opinion on ... Read more

4 Years Ago On Columbus Day
Four years ago, on Columbus Day 2008, I embarked on a new adventure (just as Columbus did). For the very first time in my life, I was putting myself on a diet.
That's right, very first time. A spoiled brat in the sense that I had a lifelo... Read more
