And Father God has welcomed me back splendidly.
I got into a cl... Read more
Now, why don't she write?
In the movie Dances With Wolves, there is a single line that I remember.
Kevin Costner and another man were riding horses through the desert, and came across a man's skeleton in the sand. As they rode by, the other man commented "Somewhere in... Read more
If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up
In a very timely moment, I found this on Pintrest this morning.
That sure did hit home!
I am dizzy from the amount of times I have started over and fizzled out.

I'll get by with a little help from my friends
It is my belief that Spark is a godly place.
It is founded by a godly man, who shares his magnum opus with others, for free.
It is peopled by godly people (for the most part, anyway)
And in a godly fashion... the people here welcome back t... Read more
The Value of a Cheat Day
On my plan, I get a cheat day every Saturday.
And on that day, I do indeed cheat.
Not insanely, but I do indulge in foods that I don't get on my plan.
Now, some of you might be thinking: "So?" (because this is not a new concept, nor i... Read more
Celebrating food (or not)
The French cook spectacularly well, but they don't obsess about food the way Americans do. They enjoy rich foods, but their portions are very small, and spaced throughout the meal with lots of time between courses.
The English are known fo... Read more
Contacts are very interesting things. To deliberately put something in your eye is amazing. Who even thought of doing that in the first place?
I'm getting better at getting them in/out of my eyes.
Vision is still taking a while to adjust. ... Read more
I lost a friend
When there is danger, a lot of animals react by going completely still (acting dead) in the hopes that the danger will pass by without noticing them.
Others run like the wind, and then instantly become the target for a chase, and possibly the ... Read more
Things that make us happy
I was listening to a conversation between two co-workers who both have pre-kindergarten children, and they were talking about the little designer lunch bags they bought for them, and how they hid them so they will be a surprise. They were both ... Read more
The Color Purple
I'm doing this specific eating plan -- playing the Grinch to the SugarEater cells - forcing the town (body) treasurer to give up his stash of fat supplies.... going along losing fair amounts of weight on a regular basis.

Did you know you have a computer in your head?
As I mentioned before, I listen to the (free) lessons on: fatloser.com
Something came up in a lesson today that made me want to share it with you.
-----> We all need to hear the message over and over again.
This is because we are emoti... Read more
I've been listening to fatloser.com, and one of the lessons was about 100% compliance to a lifestyle plan.
Fat people believe 99% compliance (on their diet) is good. Fit people believe that 99% is terrible.
I never before thought about... Read more
Because it's the holiday, and I deserve it
It's a classic maneuver, and I still did it. I know about it, I know the effects from it, and I still did it.
It's the 4th of July -- picnic time. Isn't it our American duty to eat brats and sloppy joes on soft buns, potato salad, chips, bak... Read more
Paleo style of eating
In May I had an annual physical, and they did 2.5 hours worth of tests, blood tests, etc.
The results came back:
Pre-diabetic, high blood pressure
