Getting a dog for a dog
Wednesday, August 10, 2011      5 comments

Last year, I lost my best dog ever. I packed on weight in the raw and blind grief I experienced after. Once I'd healed a bit, I found room in my heart and home for a new dog, and adopted my current dog from a great rescue group. I've blog... Read more
Weight loss goal achieved! Back to using Spark.
Tuesday, July 26, 2011      0 comments

After massive regain, I left Spark to go to the Medifast website where I used their trackers and daily tools, and made new online friends. I used Medifast products to take off 30 pounds (2 "real" meals a day plus 4 Medifast meals). I'm a... Read more

I've lost over 20 pounds with medifast, I've got about 10 or so to go. I'm starting to plan transition out of their weight loss phase and will soon add back in healthy foods. We joined a CSA and I'm looking forward to adding in a lot of fresh ... Read more
First weigh in posts a nice loss

On this new plan, I weigh weekly, on Monday morning. I wear my pjs, but make sure I've already peed. (TMI?) This week was my first official weigh-in, I am down 3.8 pounds. I realize that a lot of this is water loss and I've probably n... Read more
Sunday success

Day four of super low calories and almost no carbs and I survived a long car trip followed by a family visit complete with spaghetti dinner. I had dry salad. It helps that I don't like spaghetti. :) My new weigh in days are Mondays, so I'm... Read more
Still staying on track

Just popping in to say that I'm doing well on this rigid new diet, looking at it as a step towards getting back into shape, not the final answer. My depression is lifting because instead of rolling around in my misery, I'm trying to fix things.... Read more
Medifast Day One
Thursday, February 17, 2011      1 comments

Well, I live so close to the Medifast distribution center that the food I ordered arrived in one day rather than 5. So I start today. I'll stay on this plan until I can get myself moving again and then transition off of it to a sensible diet. ... Read more
Doing terribly again, alas, alack.

I was sick from Thanksgiving weekend until after New Years with some kind of neverending virus. Then, as usual, my upper back and neck started bothering me as winter progressed and I've spent the last 6 weeks sitting all day in a chair at work ... Read more
Hike in already, still a whole day to fill!

Living 2 miles from a state park has its advantages. I just got in a 2 mile 1 hr 20 minute hike and got back home before most folks have started their day. I like to go early because I like walking in the cold, and there are fewer peop... Read more

Actually not mosscumulating for a change.
Tuesday, November 16, 2010      3 comments

I'm kind of a rock. Immobile, usually content to sit and get mossy and slow to move unless someone really pushes me around. My father-in-law told me this weekend to look into refinancing the house because rates are lower now than what we s... Read more

I wanted to find some things I could cook on Sunday and eat all week, or freeze for later, and I decided on soup. I got this cookbook:

Where'd everybody go?

I'm incredibly anti-social. It it weren't for the gf's friends, I wouldn't have hardly any at all. I don't have any of my own. I'm not sure when this happened- I was very outgoing for most of my life, never shy. I was a juvenile delinque... Read more

I lost both my dog and my cat on the same day in September- both had cancer, the cat went on his own but I had to have the dog put down. It was terrible. I'd had the cat since I was 17 (I'm now 33) and the dog was my favorite dog ever. I ... Read more
