The "hopeless" feeling of the last post has been taking awhile to go away, though I've been "slugging away" at it anyway. But finally today, a new idea is coming to me. The "new idea" is to actually give in to giving up! Giving up on weight... Read more
Will I ever find that Key?

Staring at the food tracker this morning... realizing what I really need to do right now is journal... I've been tracking my food for at least a couple of years now. Too bad it wasn't "magical", and could take off my extra weight by the ver... Read more

Wow... so long since I blogged here! Sometimes it's hard to think of something to say, especially when I do journal every day already ( Had a very bad cold last week, so got out of all the exercising. I guess visits, parties... Read more
Not obsessing!

It's not *quite* so bad when you gain weight, if you know exactly why... and I do know why. But when I looked back at my record (I keep a repeating task on my calendar, and update it every time I weigh myself), I encouraged myself that afte... Read more
Need tactics for resisting summer favourites!
Wednesday, May 25, 2011      1 comments

Oh boy, summer's coming... ice cream, vacation treats... eating out... I'll just have to have small-calorie meals whenever possible. I've started using the "Note" function on the Nutrition Tracker page to make a note of how many calories I'... Read more

Well, it has FINALLY come (and gone!)--that LAST night I was waiting for! Funny thing is, I don't feel as jubilant as I thought I would... maybe because there are still several little things to finish off. But, no more big planning to do for Clu... Read more
Tomorrow, tomorrow!

How can I be such an old lady, and feel like a child! I keep looking at my calendar (because it happens to be nearby) and thinking "I can't wait til tomorrow, can't wait til it's over, oh, I wish it was tomorrow!" Tomorrow will be the LAST (ever... Read more

Well, not a sunny day today, but no matter. We had such a wonderful, encouraging sermon yesterday. It spoke to our church specifically, and to many of those whom no one else knows what agonies/worries they're going through right now, on behalf o... Read more
Sleep and cheer up!

It's always fun to start typing when you have no idea what you're going to say... :) I slept well last night, for a change, and could have slept longer. Sleep is soooo important! When you're tired, you have so much less will power. Plus, th... Read more

Two. long. weeks. left! Funny how when you're "retiring" from something, the last few weeks of it seem to take sooooo long! I just want to clean up the mess left over from it, but can't until it's over. Can't wait to delete that particular repea... Read more

OK, so we got rid of all the Easter treats rather quickly... kind of a relief to have them gone, lol! I'm sure I gained some weight, but certainly not ALL of it back. I'm totally accepting of the fact that there will always be steps "backwards".... Read more
Lenten ruminations...
Sunday, April 24, 2011      0 comments

The reason I practise so many Lenten disciplines, is just because I've been doing it for a long, long time... it started with just one or two things. And I don't suggest that everyone should be doing this. I just like to do it because it reminds... Read more
fasting experiences
Saturday, April 23, 2011      0 comments

Fasting is not recommended for the purpose of losing weight, and that's not why I do it. In fact, I find that it's very difficult to do, UNLESS I'm doing it for the purpose of prayer. For Holy Week, I fasted a different meal each day, then ... Read more
the Cleansing
Saturday, April 16, 2011      1 comments

My, the rain is really coming down out there! The worst part is the cooler temps... yesterday's sun looked so inviting, but when we were out for our walk, the wind was SO cold! And this is supposed to continue for a few days, apparently. Ah... Read more
Holy Week is coming!

Ahhhh!!! Such wonderful warm temps today! In fact, because it was warm enough for the furnace to NOT come on this morning, we were all able to sleep in (til 8 am), which was much-needed. Sleep is so, so important. I'm so looking forward to ... Read more
