I need to weigh myself every day to be sure I am not getting retention from too much sodium. (Watching sodium is rather tedious but thanks to SparkPeople if I track my food it is listed in my detailed accounting....Even though it was a bit high... Read more
It has to be water weight. I dare not weigh myself after I hydrate today. Must weigh naked and thirsty.
Two days ago I blogged about forgetting to track close to 2000 calories...

Would it be cool (or not) if we had a computer that automatically counted all the food we "forgot" to track? Yesterday is a case in point. I finished off the bag of Lindor truffles I bought "to bring to work" (120 calories X 6 = 720), a "handful... Read more

Working on bills and 2010 budget which seems a disaster. Makes me want to run away from home (which, of course, is not an option). Need to say little prayers throughout the day for strength. Oh, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy.... Read more

No swelling and very little pain. Carpal tunnel release and trigger thumb release much easier than CPC joint replacement surgery when bones were cut. This time only soft tissues were cut and will be able to shower 3 days after surgery....Stitc... Read more

We have had 2 "cat fires." The first happened when I worked at home and my supervisor called to discuss something and suddenly I said, "Oh, no, the cat's on fire!" and then hung up the phone. It is one of the favorite stories in the department o... Read more
