Day 3 - Thursday - Total Cals = 1,134 The day 3 menu didn't appeal to me so I followed the menu for day 4. I'll do day 3 tomorrow. Although I don't usually have an early breakfast, I decided to eat before I went to work. I don't drink ... Read more

Day 2 - Wednesday - Total Cals = 1,167 The muffins are a bit tough, sticky and sweet. I cut them up into bits and have with a swallow of coffee. When I got home from work I just threw together the salad from the pre-chopped stuff I ha... Read more

I decided on the spur of the moment, totally uninspired as to what to buy to eat this week, to try the Nutrisystem 5-Day kit from Walmart. I bought the Type II Diabetes kit as I've been having some issues with my blood sugar and carbs. Since I w... Read more

On Friday morning I sat in my car, Molly dog ensconced in the rear. The car was loaded and trip-ready, motor running. I could not make myself pull out of the parking lot. This would be the last time I left the apartment as a WE. When I returned,... Read more

I have no words to describe how this made me feel. When I was 16, I weighed less than 130 lbs. But it was the age of Twiggy. And for years my father had teased me about my "baby fat" and my sisters chanted "Patty Fatty Two-by-Four can't get thro... Read more
Starting Over Is A Habit
Thursday, January 16, 2014      5 comments

I quit keeping this blog about a year ago. I used daily status updates to share and express myself instead. Today I had a few more things I wanted to say out loud and they won't fit in a status update. I've made a habit of spending a l... Read more

Everyday is new ... it is the day we begin again, without beating ourselves up over the past or obsessing about the future. This I can do ... just this one day. And that's all we really need to do isn't it ... just this day. P.S. I wis... Read more

Anyone who know me knows I cannot cook without onion. And that I have migraines. This afternoon I fixed myself a huge pan of (a lot of) sauted yellow onion (there being no true Videlia available), garlic, and crookneck and zucchini s... Read more
