I can hardly believe I've been doing this for five weeks! I've really started viewing food differently and really thinking about food before I eat it. I'm also glad that I'm starting to feel more satiated with less food. I still have occasional... Read more

I have long hidden from my weight. I didn't weigh myself because I didn't want to know. I'd refuse to get on the scale at the doctor's office because I didn't want to know and I certainly didn't want anyone else to know! When I decided to get s... Read more
March 2016: Dang you, 1.3!
Friday, April 01, 2016      6 comments

Well, I didn't make it. The scale didn't reflect that last 1.3 lbs to make my 20lbs in 30 days goal. At first, I was awash in disappointment and immediately started with the "If I had..." scenarios. Then, I stopped myself. Why, on Ea... Read more

Second Shelf, on the Right
Sunday, March 27, 2016      8 comments

Anyone who knows me knows I'm not a 'domestic' person. My daughter got me a sign for my kitchen that says, "I only have a kitchen because it came with the house." I have long-joked that the best meal I've ever made was with my phone (calling ... Read more
Am I really doing this?!
Saturday, March 26, 2016      8 comments

I've never really put a lot of effort into changing my food habits or doing anything about my weight. Somehow, I always thought that one day, it would just magically take care of itself or my insurance would change and I'd get to have weight-l... Read more
