Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Day 207: My Birthday Wish

Sunday, August 01, 2010      365 comments

I didn't lose any additional weight in the last 2 weeks of July, which is not that shocking since I wasn't really trying. My goal of getting a life just took center stage. It was emotionally excruciating at times and all kinds of issues came to ... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Day 202: My House is A Place

Monday, July 26, 2010      332 comments

Is it possible to be a billion degrees? That is what it felt like as my skin fried this past Saturday on the streets of Philadelphia. I am wearing my long red maxi dress with a map in hand, kind of lost and desperately looking for the Wilma Thea... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Day 198: Do You Have an Iron?

Thursday, July 22, 2010      413 comments

I should have known that things were doomed with Ben when he blurted out after a really romantic date, “Do you have an iron?” [There are plenty of household items I have no intention of using – the iron is one of them.] Ben was the last guy... Read more

Monday, July 12, 2010      387 comments

This leg of my journey is not about mastering workouts [I can barely get through 20 minutes of cardio without my iPod, the TV and a magazine – the boredom trifeca.] And it’s not about balancing my nutrition – I am mostly “good.” Mostly. [Bu... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Day 176: Dating Mr. Soap Opera

Monday, June 28, 2010      383 comments

For years I told myself I would date when I reached some mythical goal weight, which I would achieve in a matter of months with a quickie diet. I needed to be perfect so I could be loved so I could – just be. It was always about what ... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Day 164: The Pringles Hypothesis

Wednesday, June 16, 2010      458 comments

I struggle when folks send me emails asking my diet secret because I don’t believe in diets or secrets, for that matter. To me, this journey is about defining life on my terms – freedom to do and be as I say [because I say so]. Here is what... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Day 157: Dating and Ezekial Bread

Tuesday, June 08, 2010      304 comments

There I am. Sitting on my couch, crying, typing on my laptop, and shoveling in Ezekial Bread like it’s cheesecake or something [no more comfort food in this house – so it’s either this or bulgar or oatmeal – even my snack food is depressing. Cru... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Day 150: The Halfway Point, the Confessional and Some Pictures

Tuesday, June 01, 2010      482 comments

The bathroom has become the tinkle confessional at work. This is where people feel most comfortable talking about my transition from boy clothes to dresses. I must say, I am in there more [‘cause I am checking my tushy. I want to look good ... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Day 144: Minty-Green Pants

Wednesday, May 26, 2010      290 comments

When I moved into my house 4 years ago, one of my neighbors thought I was a nurse because I always wore minty-green baggy pants – like hospital scrubs. I do not work in a hospital but I had 5 pair of those green pants. Yes, five … I hated buying... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Day 137: The Pixie and the Minimizer

Wednesday, May 19, 2010      367 comments

I am at the mall [ugh!] on a Friday night replacing bras and even on sale they are not cheap. I am standing near the registers in an intimate shop at Macy’s with my arms held out like a scarecrow. The tiniest of pixies reaches up to a... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Day 130: Last Place Finisher

Wednesday, May 12, 2010      459 comments

It was like a ghost town. I thought I was the last person walking in the 5K. A security van was creeping slowly behind me as I walked. I called through his open window, “Am I the last person?” He said, “That depends if you are walking backw... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Day 124: Dressing Room War

Thursday, May 06, 2010      299 comments

It’s just me, 3 full-length mirrors and a hook to hang my clothing [or my dignity]. It’s the dressing room at Target. The last time I was here was about 4 months ago and I was desperate to fit into a XXL pink argyle sweater. It tugged and ... Read more

Friday, April 30, 2010      259 comments

I am not a gym talker. I don’t know how people carry on full conversations on the elliptical. It’s not like I am going fast, but I might be watching TV [and I can’t do both]. But the other night, I am cranking Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” som... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Day 115: Dear Water Weight

Tuesday, April 27, 2010      183 comments

I did something weird yesterday morning. I made my bed. I make my bed maybe 6 times year because it seems ridiculous to do something that gets un-done in a matter of hours. I practice selective cleaning – that means I do enough to not die o... Read more

Friday, April 23, 2010      241 comments

I hear the word “failure” a lot when it comes to weight loss. Like making a life change is a pass or fail test. To me, that word is counterproductive and I wish it wasn’t used so freely or at all. But I get it. I do. I know what it’s like t... Read more
