As the year winds to its end, I am thankful that I have enough friends and family to remember and appreciate me (and be remembered and appreciated by me), enough funds to stay afloat (and enough credit to smooth out the rough patches), enough fo... Read more

Catching up

Monday, November 23, 2015      2 comments

I'm still getting settled in to my cabin, although a lot of the settling in is just feeling unsettled. I've been eating more than I "should" -- that year of living with my last girlfriend and starving myself down to 205 has resulted in a lot of ... Read more

Been a while

Sunday, July 05, 2015      2 comments

I have moved. I still have some things to move and need a couple bookcases to put my books away (two of the three I had were too flimsy to move) but my friends who are now my landlords say they have some and will bring them. I have until the en... Read more

Moving right along

Tuesday, February 03, 2015      2 comments

I'm still doing the bounce. I managed to stay under 250 this holiday season, and am currently 2 pounds higher than I was prior to Thanksgiving. But the stresses are decreasing, including the fact that I should be completely out of debt by July (... Read more

Lost ground

Weights on Dec 24: 2007 - 252 2008 - 266 2009 - 246 2010 - 244 2011 - 242 2012 - 227 2013 - 208 2014 - 246 I like the way it was going (although I was starving myself to death to get to the 2013 mark), wonder how I could sli... Read more

Stringing Myself Along

Wednesday, October 08, 2014      2 comments

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...

Thursday, October 02, 2014      3 comments

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

Bard Me

Friday, August 29, 2014      2 comments

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

Falling off

Monday, April 21, 2014      3 comments

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

Moved In

Wednesday, March 05, 2014      2 comments

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

Monday, February 24, 2014      4 comments

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

Tuesday, December 10, 2013      4 comments

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

Friday, November 29, 2013      5 comments

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

Monday, November 25, 2013      6 comments

This morning I stepped on the scale and saw 205.6 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. ... Read more

Moving along

Saturday, November 16, 2013      1 comments

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
