Banishing (almost) the Scale

Wednesday, January 09, 2013      12 comments

I never even owned a scale in my life until four years ago, when I embarked on this weight loss adventure. I'd never gained weight and never even thought about it; thus, no need for a scale. Okay, I bought a scale in October 2009. The sca... Read more

13 is My Lucky Number

Tuesday, January 08, 2013      12 comments

So I feel like this year will be a good one. Relative to the past 5, anything will be better! (smiling) Seriously, I don't have "lucky" numbers, but I DO like Friday the 13th. Feel a good vibe with that number. I believe we make our own ... Read more

I started this healthy adventure on my own four years ago in October, but found SP by accident in January a few months later. These four years have been full of major bumps in the road for me, but logging into this site has helped me reinfo... Read more

Farmaggedon - Documentary

Sunday, January 06, 2013      13 comments

Last week, a sparkfriend blogged about the documentary "Hungry for Change" which is available on Netflix. I watched that and it was another helpful film (like Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead). I noticed "Farmeggedon" while searching for the other on... Read more

Good Riddance to the Holidays

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      18 comments

Not into traditional holidays. Lots of reasons. Had a good time of it, but happy they are done. Wayyyyy too superficial for me. Best to all in 2013.... Read more

2012 Wrap-Up

Saturday, December 29, 2012      17 comments

I haven't been blogging much lately. Just nothing to say right now. Overall, 2012 was, well, 2012. More losses and challenges, but that's just the way life is sometimes. My 11 lb loss over November and December has been a major victo... Read more

December 21st - The End?

Sunday, December 16, 2012      18 comments

Just curious if there's anyone who thinks this is true. Wishing all a happy day.... Read more

Tears Over the Connecticut School Shootings

Friday, December 14, 2012      19 comments

It seems a daily horror now - mass shootings. I am so very sad over today's news and the little children who were shot and killed (as well as the adults, of course). I will refrain from expressing views on society. Words fail me.... Read more

Slept Through the 6.4 Earthquake!

Friday, December 14, 2012      14 comments

I have never gotten used to how scary earthquakes are since moving to southern California many years ago. I know that every geographic area has its own weather nightmarish potential, but earthquakes are pretty unique. There is no warning and t... Read more

Rain is So Soothing & Rare

Thursday, December 13, 2012      14 comments

It rains so seldom here, that when it does, it's a special event! (smiling) I love hearing it today, not to mention how brown and dry everything is w/o adequate rainfall. All of nature is being hydrated, and my heart and soul are being soothed... Read more

HOORAY FOR 12/12/12!!!!

Wednesday, December 12, 2012      13 comments

If I were engaged, I'd probably tie the knot today doing things 12 times. (smiling) Will do fun things at 12 noon - just for fun. Wishing all a happy day.... Read more

Smart Meter Radiation

Monday, December 10, 2012      11 comments

About a year ago, the local utility company installed "smart meters" outside the homes in my neighborhood without consent by the individual residents. Mine is nearby my bedroom and my neighbor's is very close since the houses have little space ... Read more

Reversing Soy Damage

Sunday, December 09, 2012      10 comments

There are three things that I have realized are contributing to a very bad quality of daily life for me. I can honestly say that I have been puzzled as to what's up with me, aside from the "normal" stress level of current challenges. I'm not o... Read more

Favorite Grocery Store Closing

Friday, December 07, 2012      18 comments

A couple of days ago, it was announced that Fresh & Easy stores will probably be closing. Talk about a blow! It sounds silly to be upset over a seemingly silly thing like this, but this store has been one of the main reasons I've been able to ... Read more


Thursday, December 06, 2012      11 comments

I want to be done with caffeine once and for all. Even though my only intake is one small mug in the morning, I don't like the way I feel with it. I've tried to do this detox before. Many times. I've tried the weaning slowly thing, cold turk... Read more
