I lost 7 lbs in the past 15 days, but now up 3 for absolutely no reason. Makes me wonder why I even bother. It's too much work for very little return.

For My Departed Baby's B'day-Prologue to my Book
I heard his first little cries from across the hallway, but when they saw my unexpected wakefulness from anesthesia, they quickly shut the doors. The glimpse I caught was of medical people surrounding my baby. I knew by his cries that he was o... Read more
Thermogenics. Thx OWNSMALLCLOTHES!
Yesterday, I read her blog about swimming in a cold pool and the principle of thermogenics, which I've heard about many times. My response to that blog was that I had to put on a sweater just reading about her cold temps! (smiling)

Wishing all a happy day.... Read more

CARB FREE & OH-WHAT-A-FEELING
For the first time ever, I've begun going carb free since last Saturday. The first few days were murder on my body and mind. Didn't expect to feel so tired. The absence of carbs made me realize that I've been overdosing on them for a long lon... Read more
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
