So, I do so good for a while, then fall flat on my face. Seems to coincide with my love life. I have been off SP for a couple of months and I know better then to leave. When I stop tracking, it means I have stopped exercising. When I stop exerci... Read more
I'm so happy today. I weighed in at 239. That's a long way from 320 and this time last summer. Celebrating with Blue Bell ice cream and pringles.... Read more

I have a friend. He is a kind man, about my age.
The thing about Mitch is this; his cancer is spreading. He goes in tomorrow to have a large section cut out of his lung.

So, today while walking on the track at a small university in a small town in west Texas, this guy catches up to me. We walk and talk for an hour or so and he gives me his email. I Google his name and here a few of the things:

The Great Barrier is Broken
The day of days. Some light at the end of the tunnel. Personal hope.

Is it Possible?
I read a blog the other day from someone who wanted to lose 30 pounds by July 4th. So I said ok, let's go! And that would be awesome. That would make a 100 pound loss for me. That would put me at my goal weight. It would be so great. So how do I... Read more

It feels like I have eaten everything in sight today. Even so, I am still 300 cals below minimums. I hope I am not tracking all my food wrong. I think I am stress eating. I'm studying for the GRE and it's been awhile since I've used my brains. I... Read more

Partial retraction: Sometimes hind-sight is a little better than for-sight. Actually, I do watch a lot of curling, and not just because it seems to be the only event on in the evenings. I was more annoyed by the announcers than I ever would be b... Read more
