Yesterday was just yicky. I do mean yicky. I hate headaches, and I know it was allergy related. At the moment, our trees don't know what the heck is up. They are SO confused with temps getting up into the 80s in FEBRUARY. So they are leafing it ... Read more

...that are interesting--if I slow down long enough to really think about it. Sometimes if I write about it, I can figure out what it really means. I was busy typing but I heard a Cadbury commercial. One of my favorite candies is the Cadbury cho... Read more

...and I thought I'd share. I've already told you I'm an emotional eater, and I've had major triggers this week. I've also suffered from chronic depression (and anxiety) for most of my life, and I have strategies to deal with it. I'm always look... Read more
Things that make me happy.

This week has been really rough. Two people I've loved, cherished, and lived in my home longer than anywhere else publicly humiliated me with intentional cruelty. I am praying for them and ask if you would, too. They are 17 and 12 years old, and... Read more

Last night I had an unpleasant confrontation with someone I helped raise. Over the last year and a half, I've had to separate myself from some of my family physically, emotionally, and mentally. There is a lot of hurt and anger I've had to let g... Read more
The "All or Nothing" Sabotage
Monday, January 30, 2017      10 comments

For those of us who struggle with weight, there are many ways we set ourselves up for failure. For me, the "all or nothing" thinking was a type of sabotage that is self defeating and so opposite of what I deserve. There are some people I've know... Read more

Today I touched base with all my SparkFriends just to see how everyone was doing. I was saddened to see that many had not posted in awhile. I was hoping it was only me that did that. I go away and come back...go away and come back. I noticed tha... Read more
Traveling with a furry friend...

All I have to do is say the magic word, "go," and the furry bundle quivers with excitement. Grab his harness, and the true excitement begins. I can barely contain him long enough to get the harness on, and he just can't wait to get in the car. O... Read more

Thursday, January 12, 2017      5 comments not what the world sees. Our true selves dwell deep within us, often covered up my layers of hurt, negative talk, and losses the world cannot see; therefore, we protect ourselves with eating and piling on extra poundage like armor. All my ... Read more

After a series of family crises, we got a dog. I needed something that would get me moving, and Harley certainly fits the bill. He is the most loving animal I've ever known. He is a cockapoo and too smart for his own good. At the moment, he's cu... Read more

Saturday, December 31, 2016      7 comments

I have learned so much this year about nutrition, what MY body needs, and how commercial companies prey on those of us who are desperate enough to try anything to lose the weight. For me this has been a never ending cycle. Feel miserable; see a ... Read more

Tuesday, December 27, 2016      6 comments

...and soon to be a new year. One thing I've learned this year is that it's never good to wait, and it's never to early to start. I've enjoyed my "semi-hiatus" over the holidays. I enjoyed a good piece of pie, a couple of eggnog muffins, a few s... Read more
