I Know It Is Just a Number
Thursday, November 01, 2012      5 comments

I really lost momentum toward the end of October. Finding out that my scale was 5 pounds lighter than the doctor's office really hit me hard because it means that I'm not really in One-derland as I had thought. I know it is just a number, but On... Read more

I'm planning an easy day today. I've done a lot of errands in the past few days and I'm looking forward to doing not much. I need to catch up on the reading assignment for my Tuesday evening class. And just relax. But the brain won't keep still.... Read more

I had a less than wonderful day yesterday. So I'm glad that today is going much better. Yesterday I got the oil changed at one of those quickie places and it took 2 1/2 hours. Plus, when I left I realized that a small purse with 2 pair of readin... Read more

I have been feeling a bit of non-specific stress lately. Especially hated it this morning when the scale was up a pound. But I have figured out what is bothering me. The Sunday before Thanksgiving I will fly to Houston for a memorial servic... Read more
New Skirt, Off the Rack!!
Saturday, October 27, 2012      15 comments

On Thursday I stopped by the local dollar + store and browsed. They usually don't have any clothes that fit me. Or I should say, they used to not have any clothes that fit me. I have been looking for a new skirt for some time but all the de... Read more

My adventures in public transit are working out pretty well. Yesterday I took the bus to Bible study and the round trip ends up being four easy 10-minute walks interrupted by bus rides. The cooler weather also helps. Summer is not my favorite se... Read more

SP has the nicest people on it. I want to thank everyone who commented on my blog yesterday, The Good News First. You were so kind and supportive. I did adjust my scale up 5 pounds and now it shows me just at 200. That is better than the 20... Read more
The Good News First

The good news is I saw my doctor and my blood pressure is now normal! No special diet, no more salt-is-a-no-no, no meds! That's great. Of course, losing 15% of my body weight and doing regular exercise is a big part of that. And eating more heal... Read more
Not Going to Make a Habit of This
Tuesday, October 23, 2012      7 comments

Yesterday I went over my calorie limit. That is the first time in about 5 months! But I have been eating near the lower end of the range for several days. After I went to bed I had trouble sleeping and was hungry. Not just appetite but really hu... Read more

Southern California usually needs rain. This weekend we have gotten it, and I'm enjoying every drop. Yesterday it was a slow drizzle that didn't interrupt my bike ride. last night there were gentle showers, and a few more today with breaks that ... Read more

After worship service I often go out with a bunch of friends to have lunch. We usually go to the outdoor food court at a nearby shopping center but because of the rain [drizzle, really] a couple of people wanted to go to Soup Plantation. I... Read more

Well, the scale hasn't moved and the measuring tape isn't due to come out until the first of next month, but I went shopping for clothes today because I had some time before I was to meet a friend. The closet is looking kind of thin since the fa... Read more
Adventures in Public Transit

Sometimes I take the bus and/or trolley. It helps if I have to go downtown to not have to pay for parking [and remember where I left the car]. When I go to my eye doctor I never know when he will dilate my eyes, so I take the bus, trolley and a ... Read more

The underwear had reached a critical point--I was wearing the last clean panties and bra. So I did laundry this morning. After I put away the clean clothes I admired the still-vacant space in my closet and drawers. More vacant space was left tha... Read more
Lost My Nerve
Tuesday, October 16, 2012      9 comments

After joining SP I broke down and bought myself a bathroom scale. It is a cheap one. In fact, the cheapest one I could find. And I have to take it out on my porch to weigh myself because the landlady has carpet throughout my tiny apartment--even... Read more
