  • Tracking Debacle, Tracking Triumph

    2/10/2016 5:13:24 PM, by VALERIEMAHA

    January 21 started this journey away from crazy eating and toward rational, conscious choices. I've had 20 days so far to get used to the process of tracking intake in order to stay within my daily caloric range of 1200-1550. Generally I've done alright, finishing the day closer to the higher ... Read more

    277Mindful Eating, Mindful Life267 As I close in on the second week of once again eating consciously, I'm steady at the helm with my nutrition tracking and quite shaky in my exercise, tracking or not. As I said in my first blog on this resolve, on January 21, I weighed at my doc's office on... Read more

  • Control

    Sometimes control is a good and necessary thing in my life...like with food intake. I feel like I've been in a free fall pattern at least since August.

I'll weigh in next month at the doc's office again on or about my birthday, Feb 22-23. I'm committed to taking care of the "temple" or as my friend B... Read more

    I'm so grateful for all the comments and helpful feedback on yesterday's "Attention Call." It is indeed time to pay attention, if I want to continue with the high quality of health that I now enjoy. I've never had to take any ongoing pills, except for my self-prescribed vitamins and supplement... Read more

  • Attention Call!

    1/21/2016 10:57:13 AM, by VALERIEMAHA

    When I returned from Ecuador I weighed 133 at my doc's office on June 11. Yesterday, January 20, I stopped by the office once again to weigh. This time, seven months later, I weighed 153. That's a weight gain of almost 3 pounds per month. I'm aghast and ashamed and anxious. This should not be.... Read more
