No, I didn't seem to be MIA. I still accrued lots of SparkPoints and Fitness Minutes. I tracked, and I did all the passive stuff like articles, videos, and that brief interaction called huddling. And I've always been one to take long walks when ... Read more

Yesterday was not anything to be proud of, so I'm glad I already decided to be in this for the long haul. I didn't exactly binge, but I sure ate more than looked good on the tracker. I wasn't hungry after lunch, but I felt like eating. So ... Read more

St. Patrick's Day - when Christians commemorate the man who used the shamrock (clover) to teach about the triune God. So today, I prepared the same menu that I always do for March 17. Oh, I know. I hear the nutrition purists among you cluc... Read more

Time for a breakfast post. One of my favorite breakfasts is lots of veggies, held together with scrambled eggs and topped with cheese. To call it a veggie omelette just wouldn't do justice! It's a whole cup of fresh spinach, 1 Tbsp scallion... Read more

Time for a lunch post! This one was not an unmitigated success, but it worked! I'd had a fairly high carb breakfast and was also planning supper to be higher than average, so I knew I needed to limit lunch to mostly protein and fat. Fortunate... Read more

Just so no one gets confused, Day #3 was done as a thread on the Mid-Mo team page. Just a simple snack: one individually wrapped square of Ghiardhelli chocolate. So today will be a dinner meal. I roasted a whole organic chicken, along with... Read more

Today I'll share one of my favorite lunches, which could work equally well for breakfast. It's quick and easy to fix, and almost no clean-up. Just a cereal bowl, measuring cup , a fork, and a spoon! I mash a small banana in the bowl, using ... Read more

More of last night's "stewp"! Really? So let's start at the beginning. I've always thought it was Mom who coined the word "stewp"; at least I've never heard it outside of our family. She made the yummiest stuff on that back burner. Only no... Read more
Mini goal met - now what?

Today I got to 150 pounds, just 10 pounds away from what I chose as a tentative goal some 15 months ago. It's exciting, of course, but I find I'm also more than a little bit unsettled. Too many times, I've lost a significant amount of weight; b... Read more
