Spending less money to lose the weight
Sunday, September 29, 2019      8 comments

Today, after my umpteenth trip to Sephora, while looking down and not seeing my feet past my breasts, I realized that makeup isn’t going to fix this, amassing more skincare isn’t going to fix this. I need to spend less to lose weight, less on be... Read more

I can’t begin to explain the horrible afternoon and night I had yesterday. It seems as if the people in my life have been picking on me to the point where I’m broken. Now, there’s this huge jar of pretzels near the couch where I’ve been sle... Read more

It's not just that I'm fat (though I really am), it's not just that I've only begun to embrace getting older, or that I'm hypothyroid, I think we've figured out that, for a while now, I've been severely depressed. Sure, I try to put on a happy f... Read more
I Have No Idea What Hit Me
Monday, July 21, 2014      7 comments

I have no idea what hit me this weekend. It started out great, my husband came home, and for no reason at all, surprised me with 2 charms for my Pandora bracelet. We spent Saturday doing stuff around the house together, the girls took my makeup ... Read more

I have no clients to speak of today, not for translations and not for photography. So here I am at home, I cleaned the whole house, washed the pots and pans from last night, and even re-cleaned the bathroom. I'd have gone to the gym, but it seem... Read more

I could sit here and cry about the tsoureki (Easter bread) I ate or the koulourakia (greek mastic cookies) that I had with my coffee, but really, what's the flippin' point? I made them myself out of good, organic ingredients, and while they were... Read more

People tell you that sometimes you have to roll with the punches, but when the weather is bad and your kids are acting out, you just want to throw in the towel and delve into that giant bag of cheesy chips, especially when you're fighting with y... Read more
Yep, it's a journey, and it can be LONG.

It took me MONTHS to take off these first 14 pounds, but I'm quite proud of the accomplishment. I may never get to my ideal, but I know I am getting healthier, and possibly in this cyber community, where we are all helping and motivating each ot... Read more
It's not easy being anybody.
Tuesday, April 01, 2014      2 comments

I acknowledge it's not easy being whoever, but we all have that one friend that needs to one up us. Whenever we need a little solace, maybe a shoulder to lean on, they go "Well, at least you're not me." Online buddies, if you are me, you're not ... Read more
My weight struggles have made me a crazy, jealous wife.
Monday, March 31, 2014      2 comments

I always told myself I would never be THAT woman, the one in the corner that watches her husband or boyfriend interact with some other woman while she holds in this seething, toxic jealousy. There I was, though, yesterday, on a supposed day date... Read more

The intensity and volume of the snow has really gotten to me, with all this recovering from surgery and being treated like and incapable baby, I don't know how much I can handle. My home is in a shambles, because my little piggies are taking ful... Read more
