I woke up really desperate today. I've been like a shut-in for a month since my complicated cataract surgery and I really was starting to look as bad as I felt. So I called my daughter first thing this morning and booked an emergency appointmen... Read more

Today was the home Extension Christmas Luncheon and a day when everything seemed to go just right, and love abounded. We ate at Mama Mia's, a local Italian Ristorante, that was high on d├ęcor, in a rustic romantic old world way, and they served ... Read more

We had a few snow flurries here on Long Island last week, but today we have a real snowfall, and it looks beautiful. Wish I had one of those digital cameras so I could post some scenes, so I guess that will be something I need to do in the new y... Read more

I was so out of control that I couldn't trust myself to ride through the kitchen on my Hoveround without stopping to snack on something. So I went back to the basics almost 40 years ago when I was an active member of Overeaters Anonymous. I fou... Read more

After a very stressful week filled with annoying amounts of paperwork, doctor's visits, and the rush -rush of everyday living, I am coming to the end of the week on a positive note. I prayed and God answered prayer. He showed me where I had gone... Read more

I've been taking two steps back for every step forward, and it's making me so tired. Time to go straight and forward again. One of my best friends just reached her all-time weight loss high today, 168 pounds down, and it was such an encouragemen... Read more

So I'm learning a new lesson: Whenever I think I've reached a pinnacle of success. its because I've learned the lesson I was supposed to and now it's time to move on to a new chapter in my personal Book of Life. Seems obvious, doesn't it? It ... Read more
No time to sweat the small stuff

Just when I could finally SEE my weight loss, the scale went up 1.4 pounds. It's okay though because I look the same and feel the same as before I got on the scale. Little things like a pound up don't get to me the way they used to, and that's a... Read more

It's a brand new Saturday and I made it through the week but ate a little too much sugar along the way, and too many carbs when socializing. BUT today I turned it around and stayed on track, not allowing anything to tempt me. I got really moti... Read more

Yesterday started out really good but by the afternoon it faded into a snack fest and try as I might I didn't keep busy with the right stuff to take my mind off food. I should have taken a nap, but I didn't. I think tiredness may have been the u... Read more
Why can't it always be this way?

I always ask myself the question, "Why can't it always be this way?" when I'm eating all my healthy foods in moderation, drinking my water, and staying away from the "red light' foods! It's at these times I feel so good and so lean, clean and... Read more

For me my friends are like family, my surrogate extended family. I grew up in a home with a mother, father, and six younger siblings. We have all remained close over the decades, but everyone moved away as they attended college in various parts ... Read more

Since I last blogged I exchanged my "notebook" sized laptop for my current mid size light weight one. One of the benefits is that I can actually SEE THE PRINT on this one. I think I finally found the right one. It's amazing how connected our lap... Read more
