  • My favorite day, meal planning/prep day!

    8/20/2017 10:53:01 AM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    Two weeks ago I ordered a new lunch box. In Jamaica I had one that I packed before every night before bed. I planned my meals every Sunday. I then made appropriate grocery shopping and prepared all my legumes over the weekend. I had a crockpot in Jamaica, I would soak the beans and cook them on... Read more

  • Gaining focus

    8/17/2017 3:26:33 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    Today I got up and went to a job fair. Overall it was alright, there were a few places that I consider applying to that I have not already. I thought they might do some interviewing on the spot and taking resumes, but that is not how this one operated. I did find where to get a job coach and of c... Read more

  • Stressful Day...trying to relax!

    8/15/2017 6:00:02 PM, by SKIMBRO

    Well, I had to step in to enroll my son in his new school today. At every turn, you are told misinformation. It seemed as though they were trying to find reasons to not allow me to enroll him, than looking at the paperwork in front of them that clearly met the requirements. I pray this does no... Read more

  • Still chugging along.

    8/15/2017 8:59:35 AM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    So I am definitely in need of some changes. I need to add more cardio for certain. I also need to cut back on my going out. You would think that if I do not have a job I would not go out. WRONG! I go out to cure my boredom, to forget my stress and mostly to just numb my depression. Not really... Read more

    My I.N.R. blood testing machine for my 3 blood clots in my lung cost $950.00 with 48 lancets and 48 strips. I am trying to get the government to cover part of the cost. I got a $150.00 coupon from the company that makes them. I have the form that needs to be filled out by a regular Dr. this week, wh... Read more

    Today is my weigh in day. My weight has been going up and down all week. I had a big loss last week, so I expected to have a low number or no change on the scale. Thanks long as I keep doing all the right things, the scale will catch up. 521... Read more

  • Things are starting to look better.

    8/5/2017 4:43:05 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    So this week I took some positive steps. I saw a counselor and am now focusing on some of my major issues. (I like to play the victim and not take responsibility, but who really does? and I have a lack of self-confidence.) I even purchased a program to help me have a healthier relationship with f...

  • Weight Control or Just Fat Acceptance?

    8/5/2017 5:58:52 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    I just read an article in the NYTimes about weight loss over the years. Many criticized the author of the article for not spending enough time on the fat acceptance movement. I am one who has been sympathetic to that movement. However, I read a comment that in this modern age, you need to be aware ... Read more

  • Hello from the Pacific Northwest

    8/3/2017 1:45:28 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    Some of you may have heard we are under a heat wave. Tomorrow, Olympia will likely be in triple digits. But where my wife and I live we are surrounded by Douglas fir trees. The house only reached 80 today. Early on Thursday I will run some errands. Then I'll stop and bring some dinner home. Unlike t... Read more

  • Asking for a helping hand!

    7/26/2017 4:25:22 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    So part of the reentry for Peace Corps is 3 sessions of counseling. I have kind of just pushed this off and figured I would take advantage after I got a job. The problem with this is that I have spiraled out of control. Before I left I was a meal planning machine. Every Saturday I planned and tr... Read more

  • Health document just gave me a headache.

    7/25/2017 8:47:27 PM, by MEGSIZE8

    It feels like it's been forever since I was last here. My 13 pound weight lost had slowly crept back on me and I'm back at that breaking point where I know I have to make a change. Today I watched that What the Health documentary and it was so depressing I ended up with a bad headache. 1 in 4 Ameri... Read more

    7/25/2017 10:26:39 AM, by DHUNTER67

    I've been so upset over the past few months about my weight. Everything I have tried, I have quit. I enjoyed aquacising, but getting there was and is an effort. But I'm still paying for a membership, so I should get in there and get my monies worth. I know I need to change my eating. AGAIN. And... Read more
