I'm feeling a bit bloggish today. A first for a long while. So some random thoughts:
This title came to me and I liked it. Don't know if what follows relates, but it captures one of my concerns this week.
Also this week I had the first primary care dr physical since 2011.
I've switched to a woman dr ('DO' not 'MD' but don't know what DO stands for) 10/24 is my 2 yr follow up appt with my surgeon. Stressing about not being 184 or less, but trying to convince myself that whatever my weight is on that day, it is WORLDS BETTER than where I started!!! (296)

Wed did some batch cooking again after scoring some outrageous deals on ground beef & tomato sauce. Huge pot of meat sauce (for pasta yesterday and chili today), sloppy joe and taco meat.

GOTTA get back on that wagon for losing those pesky grief-induced poundage. SLAP my sneaky hand hard when it sidles over to the open cheeto bag on dd#3's lap...
Did I mention I now cook gluten free? DD#1 is GF. Fodder for another blog...
Happy Friday Dear Sparkfriends!!
