Stringing Myself Along
My new teacher gifted me with a beautiful Irish harp, so I have something I can do enthusiastically every day. Learning a new instrument is always exciting. Still stuck on my geas and I need to get my articles done for Peppermint and Sage -- you... Read more
How come balloons are lighter...
From the time I moved to my new apartment last March, I have gained weight. It's not that I'm eating too much -- I'm almost always under the calorie limits recommended by SP -- but it appears I was totally starving while living with my past girl... Read more
I had a wonderful thing happen. I may have mentioned that my spiritual Family named me Bard last year, a position for which I have no training save my musical ability and occasional songwriting. The last Bard in the Family passed quickly due to ... Read more
Had several friends and a cousin visit me lately, all of them bringing or buying food. My scale broke. So am I. Going to be a few weeks before I can get another one.
But I'm safe and happy and it has been a long time since those things have... Read more
All my stuff is in now. My stress levels are way low. I have tons of stuff to do, but I'm doing it one box at a time. It feels so good to be out on my own again. I hope it's a long time before I'm whining about needing somebody. I have lots of g... Read more
Moving Right Along
I got accepted for an apartment! Yayyyy! I can move on with my life, and get out of the Big City. It means more driving to work every day, but when I'm home I can just walk everywhere. My health care, grocery store, bank, post office, library, ... Read more
Druidry here I come
As a birthday present to myself, I joined Ar nDraoicht Fein, the main organization of druidry in North America. I've known Isaac's work for several decades, and helped as much as I could during his final year, and have become friends with his w... Read more
No gain, no pain
Well, maybe a little pain, but not my body. I managed to get through Thanksgiving with zero weight gain. The only negative is that I did not get to spend the day with my family as I had to work. The positive of that is that I got one plate of fo... Read more
Finally Did It
This morning I stepped on the scale and saw
In early November 2003 I weighed 305. I was busting out of my 48 waist jeans and had to decide either to quit taking my psych drugs and take control of my own health or buy 50s.

I've been having a hard time at home, pretty much since I moved in in February. What I have to gain is enormous, what I have to lose if I fail is enormous, but day to day issues are also enormous. A good bit of the problem is that I don't make e... Read more
A Bit Premature
Well, it was only a month or so back that I was lamenting the fact that I wasn't losing the weight I wanted to.
Usually September is my last month of weight loss. Apparently this is not a usual year.
I haven't hit last year's low of 20... Read more
Yummier By Yule 2014
We just started another Challenge in Pagan Place. Same set up as usual, you get points for losing weight, doing cardio work, doing weight work, supporting other Team members, and, if your other points total 15 or more, you can count your Daily L... Read more
...But Holding Steady
While I have not reached my stated goal of less than 200 pounds, or even reached last year's low of 209.8, I have been holding pretty steady around 217-220. I hope I can hold this over the Winter, although that may be wishful thinking based on p... Read more
Not getting there
Well, my low this year has still been 218 in June, have been hanging 220-222 ever since. So I'm not going to make my goal of 200 or even 210 this year. It has been a very stressful season, with new responsibilities that I just don't seem to be r... Read more
Got a bit of practice time in on my guitar last night. I don't do that enough, and it is important for my self-esteem. What is more, my honey got a free sample of a pain relief product in the mail and I tried it on her. She is in chronic pain, t... Read more
