Tuesday, June 04, 2013      9 comments

Almost a month since I blogged and a lot more than that since I weighed myself (April 30 – 191 pounds). I seem to have been beset by problems since then – family difficulties and domestic disasters (well – semi-disasters) that have needed dealin... Read more
London - such a good time!
Wednesday, May 08, 2013      11 comments

I’ve just spent few days working in central London. I used to live on the edge of London and visited often. These working trips are always hard work but there is also time to walk around my old haunts – visit a few restaurants (oh-oh!) that I kn... Read more

As I’ve mentioned I only weigh once a month and this month I haven’t been entirely well – nothing serious, just some kind of low grade bug. No energy and far far too much sleeping. However I have nonetheless managed to drop 6 pounds which is som... Read more
Memories of an unusual friend
Thursday, February 21, 2013      13 comments

I’ve been away for a few days for the funeral of my best and dearest friend – someone I brought my children up with and with whom I shared the ups and downs of life. Sad –sad-sad - but these things are the pattern of life and I was glad to be th... Read more

So here I still am – not following any extreme plan or putting myself through any pressure – I pretty well know by now what to do and what suits me. Guess that if I consider the knowledge I’ve accumulated here re food consumption and exercise I’... Read more
Keeping on . . .
Monday, January 21, 2013      7 comments

. . . and very happy to find myself doing so. Dunno where my oomph went but it’s certainly been in hiding for a long while. I started entering food and movement into my trackers after New Year without actually worrying about cals in and out, jus... Read more
2013 - belatedly
Monday, January 14, 2013      10 comments

I’m finding it hard to get going here again and I had promised myself January would be the month when I started to re-group and lose some of my regained pounds. I know I’m too easily diverted and de-focused and the work involved in having fun ov... Read more

There was quite a lot on Spark yesterday about the support, encouragement and understanding that all of us give each other. Where – as someone asked – would we all be without each other? Indeed! I - for one - would be long gone. As it is, I... Read more

An unexpectedly bad day - WHY?
Tuesday, September 04, 2012      8 comments

I’m having a bad day today - foodwise - which I can’t really understand. I’ve been doing OK with food and exercise and was thinking yesterday that it’s getting easier to be judicious about what I put in my mouth. (See my last blog about having w... Read more
FINALLY . . . I find I DO have (some) willpower
Saturday, September 01, 2012      6 comments

Had intended to be blogging every day for a while to keep myself from the slippage I could feel coming on after a pretty good couple of months – but things go awry don’t they? My partner wanted to take some friends (whom I don’t even get on with... Read more
And on the upside. . .
Wednesday, August 29, 2012      8 comments
