Friday, March 27, 2015      5 comments

So I seem to be pretty terrible with this consistency thing. Ever a work in progress. Well, I've been silent for a while, although not totally gone. Like all of you, I am trying to find my way through all of this - weight loss, exercise, ... Read more

I had my regular 3-month appointment with my rheumatologist this morning. The same one who asked me why I gained 16 pounds in 3 months back in June. He wanted to be sure it wasn't an medication issue, but the question definitely opened my eyes... Read more

So I've been back at this for about 5 weeks now. I am taking a more sensible approach than I have in the past, but still staying within calorie ranges overall (on a weekly basis at least). I'm getting in 5+ fruits and veggies, and drinking 8+ ... Read more

Thursday, September 04, 2014      7 comments

I am beginning not to recognize myself... Even in previous successful weight loss times, I would NEVER turn down the chance to eat out and would delude myself into thinking I could order something equivalent to my healthy packed lunch. ... Read more

So I had a revelation last night. I'm an addict. What's my drug? Food? Maybe, but I don't think so. My drug is dopamine, adrenaline, brain chemicals. Sure, I can get there with food, but food isn't necessary. How do I know thi... Read more

I had a GREAT weekend! Lola was amazing. I order within reason, sticking to my pre-determined choices, and even had some room for a small dessert in my food tracker. Oktoberfest was a blast, as expected. Since I am always the DD, it'... Read more

Wednesday, February 29, 2012      0 comments

Well I knew it would happen, and maybe it's better that it was so soon. BF and his mom are at odds (not an uncommon occurrence), and are not speaking. Without airing too much family laundry, his mom is a selfish, mean, unhappy user. I kno... Read more
