    Super Mom & adopted child

  • Food Tracking, Sugar, Goodbye September, and Misc.

    9/30/2016 8:44:28 AM, by SLIMMERJESSE

    I recently got serious about food tracking and what a valuable tool it is! It's so helpful to see the exact calorie intake every day. That way, when I have a night time snack, I know that it's within my range. I'm getting better with consistency in remembering to track all day. As I've said befo... Read more

  • Always Amazed By Good Attitudes from Those In Chronic Pain

    9/29/2016 3:51:37 PM, by SLIMMERJESSE

    There have been several SP friends who have made me shake my head in amazement as their illnesses/pains are intense, yet they remain motivated, pleasant and friendly. I've had some pass away who were beyond belief (including my dearest cousin) in their bravery and kind demeanor despite agonizingly ... Read more

  • Scale Isn't Moving, But My Body Is

    9/28/2016 12:00:08 PM, by SLIMMERJESSE

    I'm being such a good girl (smiling), but the scale refuses to acknowledge it. But I can see several good changes in my body, including comments from others, and it's encouraging. So, who cares about the scale? Doing great without sugar, less starches, and much less cheese. Have you ever don... Read more

  • September Has Been About Rewiring My Brain

    9/27/2016 9:32:31 AM, by SLIMMERJESSE

    I set a goal of five pounds gone in September. I've gotten rid of four. But, more importantly, I've retrained my brain to realize that I'm not going to be eating as much as I have always eaten. It has taken a lot of conscious restructuring to make my psyche aware that I do not need that amount of... Read more

  • Hair Loss from Stress, Heat Wave, Misc.

    9/26/2016 12:27:57 AM, by SLIMMERJESSE

    One of the most obvious ways stress continues to affect me is hair loss. I'm steadily losing a lot and wonder if I'll become an old, bald lady. Whatever. This extreme heat is so uncomfortable; summer just doesn't seem to want to leave. Please go away now and come back next year. Trying ... Read more

    I had set a modest goal of five pounds lost in September, but have only lost two so far. However, my clothes are fitting much better and I've received several nice compliments that reinforce that I am on the right track. I'm not going to let the scale get me down.

    9/22/2016 10:26:52 AM, by SLIMMERJESSE

    As I was falling asleep last night, I heard a radio guest talk about this $66B merger and what it means for our food chain. Although I don't remember the specifics, it is a nightmare of the worst order. Then they mentioned the role Dupont plays in all of this. Yikes! No wonder disease has been r... Read more

  • Lysine and Apple Cider Vinegar - Two "Miracle" Remedies

    Several years ago, my cat Prince Harry started to have eye infection flare-ups from his feline herpes virus. Going to the vet got expensive and the antibiotic drops didn't work very well. Then I researched on the internet and found the recommendation for L-lysine. Several SP friends at that time ... Read more

    I don't think I've ever had a dream about a pet that I've lost. William was Harry's brother (both Princes) and died two years ago this December. I miss him every single day; he had puppy personality and even though he looked super grouchy, he was the happiest little soul I've ever seen. I awo... Read more
