So Close
Tuesday, January 22, 2008      5 comments

I was so close... to a calm, quiet, next couple of months. My son was all set to go back to school on Sunday morning. He had even cleaned up his room. Not much else, but the room was clean. Just one last night out with his girlfriend before h... Read more
Tactful suggestions
Wednesday, January 16, 2008      2 comments

What is tact? An instructor in high school said that tact was the ability to tell someone to go to hell with so much finesse that they were actually looking forward to the trip. I’ve always been a person that says what’s on my mind, and I n... Read more

Okay, here are my own thoughts on each of the possible LBD selections, and then I'll tell you who the winner was (Fun and Games thread, General Discussion Forum, 80's Music Lover's Team, who rock, by the way). Choice A Black - This dres... Read more
What I Deal With Daily

Our office is in the basement of our building. The landlord calls it the Lower Level, but it's still a basement. It's quite comfortable and roomy, and I really don't mind the lack of windows. When it was time to enlarge our space, my boss charge... Read more

I didn't think one existed, but here it is. It was just emailed to me this morning. The other in the picture is my ex-boyfriend. We're still friends, and I still love him. 100 bonus points for me, yay! I used the one with the broc... Read more
Timelines Keep Things in Perspective
Sunday, December 30, 2007      4 comments

When we see ourselves everyday, we really don't get the full visual impact of what our weight loss or gain actually looks like. That's why it's so easy to ignore when we are gaining it, until one day we wake up and truly don't recognize ourselve... Read more

For anyone stumbling across this blog and you don't know what I'm talking about, it's chatted about on the 80's Music Lovers team message board "Miscellaneous Chats and Shout Outs", back on Dec. 19th. Well the kids and I went shopping today... Read more
Camp Cederoth in full swing and LBD's
Saturday, December 29, 2007      4 comments

I ended up not having to work tonight, or tomorrow night either. Good thing/bad thing. It's nice to have the entire weekend off. At least they let me know that it was dead before I went in. I was in the city anyway at my friend's house between t... Read more
Obligations and Resolutions

Christmas is over for me and I am so glad. I don't begrudge anyone their Merry Christmas, in fact, it usually makes things better for me when everyone else is happy, but it's never been a good time for me. I used to get past things and into the ... Read more
Don't read this if you're hungry

Last chance to close this blog right now. You've been warned. Friday was our office Christmas lunch and the three of us went to an Italian restaurant. This was a traditional type of place and low-fat did not seem to be on their menu, but I... Read more

Metabolism is a tricky thing
Friday, December 14, 2007      1 comments

Wow! Today I am feeling the full brunt of coming OUT of starvation mode. Normally, I wasn't a big eater and when I started tracking my calorie intake on SP, it was less than half of what I should have. Now that I am more consistently gettin... Read more
I Like Being Alone
Wednesday, December 12, 2007      3 comments

I've been trying for over a year now to get my place clean all at once. Ever since I asked my boyfriend to move out. I still had my son here, so it was hard. For reasons I won't go into because it's TMI, I have to be totally alone when I clean. ... Read more
Down time
Tuesday, December 11, 2007      2 comments

I'm just gonna chill for the next few days I think. I won't say it's been an overly stressful couple of weeks, but I've had to be "on" more than usual. Paying attention to and focusing on others and nothing for myself. Consequently, it's making ... Read more

Wednesday, December 05, 2007      4 comments

Positive energy is contagious. We may have an epidemic here. Last Friday (11/30) started out fabulous. I woke up in a great mood, and the positive energy flowing from the "I'm Great..." message thread in the 80's Music Lover's Spark Team on... Read more
