So, been working but not blogging. I actually lost some weight--6.4 since starting WW. Not spectacular, but at least it is downward. We travel a lot, eat out on weekends with friends--it's no excuse, but it is fact. Still working, and t... Read more

Well, it's been a long time since I posted. Still trying to find the key, yes, but I remembered that once in the past when I was doing WW, I tried to reduce carbs--the whites and heavies--and had some success. To that end, I have tried this ov... Read more

So, another wimpy 1/2 pound loss at WW this week. Erghh! I see all these posts "I lost 5 lbs week one!", etc. and I've lost a big 1-1/2 lbs in 4 weeks. Something has got to give, so I guess it will have to be my attitude. At least it is a d... Read more

So, despite the excesses of the holiday week, I managed to gain only a 1/2 lb which means I am still 1/2 less than when I started WW 2 weeks ago. That's a positive. My kids are slowly filtering back to their homes, one tomorrow, one Thursday,... Read more

See that double chin? It's going--yes it is. I am hungry. Trying to stick to regular, real, unprocessed foods. Needless to say, it is hard to just eat something without excess planning, and hard to plan when I am swamped with work, both at h... Read more
