With the start of BLC26, part of our first weekend challenge is to blog about our expectations for this challenge. I've had to ponder this for quite awhile because.........well, because there are some things I've done quite wrong in the past w... Read more

I haven't blogged in .......... geez.........quite awhile. I I used to try to get my thoughts down fairly often here, but I let that slide as I have so many things of late. My adventure in overeating began when I was in high school - lots... Read more

I'm generally a pretty easy-going person............well, except for being tolerant of the Lady In the Mirror. She'd likely tell you that I'm easy-going with everyone but her. She, however, is not the topic of conversation today..........! ... Read more
She Did It Again

"They're right, you know", the Lady In the Mirror said to me. "What in the world do you mean?", I asked. "Jan, Barb, Karen, and Dena are right. You've been pretty snarky with me lately.....more so than usual, anyway", she replied. ... Read more

Change. This is, perhaps, the most feared 6 letter word in the dictionary. Change is not something we, as humans, do easily. Habits get ingrained, comfort zones get reached, and "change" makes us take paths that are new, different, and s... Read more

"Guess what I did for us for Saturday?" Mom2 asked me last Thursday. I pondered this question as, generally, there lurks a surprise that either makes me dance for joy around our condo, or makes me think she really needs to be placed in a ... Read more
To BLC 20 and beyond.........
Monday, September 17, 2012      10 comments

Gee, that sounds something like, "To infinity, and beyond!" , something the character Buzz Lightyear was fond of saying in the movie "Toy Story". As I was pondering just what I wanted to get out of this round of the BLC, I decided I needed to ... Read more
Summer "Break"And The Lady In The Mirror
Friday, July 13, 2012      4 comments

I've had to have a lot of conversations with the lady in the mirror the past few days and none of them have been very pretty. I've been pretty hard on her lately and she's getting pretty darned tired of me. She keeps trying to remind me that I... Read more

Looking back to the 80's makes me look back to some of both my best memories and worst decisions.........and documents the start of my realization that I was unhappy and taking it out on food. I reached my highest weight not in the 80's but... Read more

.....and I'm addicted to food. The positive thing about that is that, of all the addictions to have, it's at least legal. As I thought about all the *other* things I could have put as "positives" I began to realize that, like any addiction, no... Read more

Looking back......
Sunday, January 01, 2012      1 comments something I've decided today not to do. I know that may sound kind of strange since it *is* January 1, 2012. However.........looking back on 2011 just doesn't seem to be the most productive way to start looking ahead to the new year i... Read more
