This entire month has been a disaster. I think that I am still in shock over the deaths of Stan and Dennis and am coping with it poorly. I have religiously tracked all my food--until this month. Lately I just couldn't be bothered. I have... Read more

I met Dennis many years ago when we worked together. As soon as we met,I knew that we probably wouldn't get along and that we had absolutely nothing in common. He felt pretty much the same way. Dennis was a conservative Christian, a membe... Read more

We went to North Dakota on November 2 because our son-in-law was sick in the hospital. Our flights were delayed 4 hours due to whatever so we didn't get to Fargo until 8 p.m. Stan had gone into a coma several hours earlier so while we did get ... Read more

Today is an absolutely gorgeous day in western Washington--in the 70's and not a cloud in sight! My walking buddy and I went four our walk this morning and I figured that I would go to the gym later. Well, it was such a beautiful day--and ... Read more

The husband and I went out to dinner last night and I waaaaay overdid it--white bread, sugar, fat...about the only things that I didn't have were alcohol, hemlock, and lead-based paint. My total calorie intake for the day was close to 2000. ... Read more

There's a lot to be said for hanging out with people like yourself. Years ago, I went to join a gym. The personal trainer who showed me the facility and introduced me to the equipment could hardly hide her disgust that "my type" of person ... Read more

Things haven't been going well lately--both dietwise and personally. I've been trying and trying to lose weight and it just doesn't work for me the same way that it seems to work for "normal" people. I just finished reading "The Insulin-Re... Read more

So I bought a pedometer on Wednesday because I figured that I am doing so much walking that I should keep track of it as a pick-me-up when I feel as though I'm not doing enough. I did my 4-mile walk in the morning, went shopping, did my usu... Read more

The other day I was talking to a friend who wanted to get together the next day. I said sure, but it would have to be after 9:30 because I was walking around the lake until then. She got a perplexed look on her face and asked if there was ... Read more

A few days ago, the husband and I went to Quiznos for lunch. I was debating what to order and--being the ever vigilant weight watcher that I am-- asked for a printout of the nutritional value of the different salads and sandwiches. The counter... Read more

I joined SparkPeople last month and I must admit that a lot of the concepts on this site confused me greatly. Post losts of messages to the message board, they say--you get 3 points for every message you post. Great, I told myself. How do the... Read more

My eight-year-old granddaughter is staying with us. After dinner last night, she wanted to go to the park and play on the playground equipment but I told her that I had to do the dishes and clean up the kitchen. With real bewilderment in her v... Read more
Memo to Self: It's not a race!
Sunday, July 08, 2007      2 comments

I have come to the conclusion that one (of the many) issues I have with food is that I simply eat too fast--almost as though it's a chore that I need to get through as soon as possible--which is weird since once I finish whatever is on my plate,... Read more
