OK. FInally here are some images of my piece de resistance - I'm sure you're all sick of even hearing about it. Believe me, I'm sick of working on it! But I really, really love how it's turning out. Perfect colors, though these shots don't do th... Read more

I'm painting my hallway and listening to my local classical music radio station (yes, I pledged!) and thinking about SparkFriends and SparkAcquaintances, and how many of them, male and female alike, have terrible self-esteem. And by that I ... Read more

Wednesday, October 26, 2011      5 comments

I have not had much trouble with this new lifestyle since I started back in July. I did have a couple of time periods when I stopped losing for a few weeks at a time, but after doing some research and asking around the low carb team I decided it... Read more
Crossing an invisible line
Tuesday, October 11, 2011      2 comments

I think that, unnoticed, sometime in the last 3 weeks I crossed some mysterious border line. I weighed myself on Monday morning and, not surprisingly, didn't show any loss. I knew from the mirror and from my clothing that I hadn't changed m... Read more

Had to throw out the last of my black polyester pants two weeks ago. Falling off. *grins* A few weeks before that I had bought a pair of navy and a pair of grey tweed pants TWO SIZES SMALLER! Still have a bit of lycra in them, but at least ... Read more

I think I have the "macro" issues of eating down (and rather thrillingly so!), but am realizing that adjusting the "micro" issues might be a very long-term proposition. I have officially stalled, and am starting to experiment with what will... Read more

My sister and niece took me out for a birthday lunch treat at a local Thai restaurant that I've wanted to go to for years and it was SO EXCELLENT! I honestly don't know if I stayed on track for carbs or not, though I certainly tried. I had a m... Read more

Got through a rather difficult weekend and stayed on a surprisingly even keel, especially considering that my hormones should be making me even more prone to being emotional. I have actually been feeling generally more positive and motivate... Read more
Fear of Hunger
Monday, August 01, 2011      2 comments

Over the years I seem to have developed a real dread of discomfort of any kind. I have less and less tolerance for stress and unhappiness and, particularly, boredom. And that dread extends to being hungry as well. Not the real hunger: the s... Read more

As I was walking through my office building this morning, evaporating the humidity from my body and hair as I strolled through the cool dry air, I realized that in just a few more pounds I can get one of the best rewards out there. Real. Cotton... Read more
