Yesterday, on a whim my friend and I went out for lunch. We headed to Olive Garden. I love their soup and salad lunch (I get the zuppa tuscana soup--delicious and not too high caloried, and always get the low-fat Ital. dressing for my salad), bu... Read more

I have always though I would have been a good Jewish child, (hope that's not too politically incorrect) because I carry so much guilt around with me. I feel responsible for everything that is wrong in my home, for everything that might possibly ... Read more

Yesterday, when I got home from work, there was a box waiting on the table for me that had arrived in the mail. I love getting packages in the mail--it's like Christmas or your birthday, especially when I didn't remember ordering anything and co... Read more

I am not a fan of Panera Bread. I find the bread on their sandwiches just too HARD to chew. In fact once I had a temporary cap on one of my teeth and while eating one of thei... Read more

Sunday, July 22, 2012      31 comments

I picked up my grandkids Friday afternoon from their Daycare. We had a great time--as usual. But they are both terrified of little Lola, so that makes it hard on all of us. Tried to keep them separated as much as possible, but Lola loves kids. S... Read more

I tried to take pictures of some of the fat pictures I found in that envelope, but as usual, they are very blurry, and I can't find those pictures on my computer. They may be on my computer at work--that's where I used to download all my picture... Read more
How Clueless Can Some People Be?
Thursday, July 19, 2012      31 comments

I don't really care that much about what others think of me or my loss, nor do I expect accolades any longer. I do sometimes wonder if people realize when they see me after 6 months or a year and I still look the same, how hard it is to achieve ... Read more

Tuesday, July 17, 2012      48 comments

The scale has been all over the place in the last few weeks. And no wonder! I've been allowing myself way too much of the wrong food and also eating way too much of it! In the weeks after my surgery, I got as low as 147. I was good about ke... Read more

I really think the so-called "diet" food that is on the market today is far superior to what what available in the past. Of course REAL food is best, but when you want to make something and need substitute ingredients, you need to buy some of th... Read more
