Saturday, April 30, 2011      13 comments

I'm feeling very lucky that my slight indulgence over a birthday dinner for DH yesterday did not push the scale up -- or at least not yet! I'm holding at 142 for now, got to the gym today for cardio and upper body weights plus abs and stretchin... Read more

Long Weekend

Monday, April 25, 2011      9 comments

This has been a lovely four days off work, relaxing at home and at the golf course. I indulged in a couple of toasted hot cross buns (yes, faithfully tracked, within calorie range!). Maybe these aren't an American tradition, because I didn't ... Read more

There is nothing like it. I do know that being "up two" is not the end of the world. It's minor stuff -- true even if it turns out to be a "real" gain. Still minor. But -- absolutely not minor-- the kindness, the great suggestions,... Read more

Up Two

How I hate changing my weight tracker but -- there it is, 144.5!! WAAAAAAHHHHHHH!! Gotta keep it real. And -- no, I don't think it's "permanent" because it can't be: I simply have not eaten enough or slacked off from exercise to gener... Read more

My weight is at 142.5 right now. It may not "stick" there as my ultimate "lowest sustainable weight" (that's the concept from Judith S. Beck's "Diet Solution" I'm experimenting to discover) but my weight has been hovering at about 142 for sev... Read more

Do you love perfume as much as I do? Are you a "signature perfume" type -- always choosing the same fragrance? Or are you silly enough sometimes to select a perfume just because it kinda "coordinates" with what you're wearing? For... Read more

Sixty!!

Friday, April 08, 2011      22 comments

Yesterday I turned 60!! SIXTY!! OK, cannot believe it. And have to say, turning 60 is probably the most traumatic "big birthday" I've experienced since 40. When my husband had to take me to Bermuda for a week. And arrange a catered p... Read more

What Goes Up Must Come Down . . . .

Friday, April 01, 2011      11 comments

OK, probably a blip. Maybe there will be a full 24 hours at this "new weight" -- and maybe tomorrow I'll have to put the weight tracker back up again. And I will. If necessary. Really. And maybe it will be Sunday morning which... Read more
