Computer problems
Friday, June 24, 2011      6 comments

I'm so glad to be back on Spark, but I'm still having computer problems. I wrote a blog this morning and then with the flick of a finger, it disappeared! There goes another blog flying in cyber space. Not the first trick of the day, either. I fl... Read more
Made it through a rough day

Today is the day after my deceased daughter's 43rd birthday. It will be 15 years without her on June 30, this year. It's always worse before the date, managable on the date, and much better after it passes. Time is not only a great healer, but a... Read more
I Love my refrigerator
Thursday, June 16, 2011      6 comments

Today I have a working refrigerator! I feel so liberated and NORMAL again. Yesterday, even after the repairman fixed the fridge, I couldn't do more than toss the contents and complete my Peapod list for tomorrow's grocery delivery. I felt numb, ... Read more
Surviving without a refrigerator
Monday, June 13, 2011      7 comments

Still no refrigerator, and it's getting to be a pain. I'm managing to live and stay pretty much on plan in spite of it though. At first the challenge was a little bit exciting, like camping out, but now it's getting tedious over the long haul. ... Read more
Pulling the trigger

Last night a dear friend called and asked me to change the venue for my next week's birthday luncheon with my Weight Watcher friends because the lunch special at the restaurant had gone up in price. Being the accommodating person that I am, I sa... Read more
Rising to the challenge

It's 8pm Sunday night and I've managed to get through another day without going off course. My refrigerator door came off, yes, completely slipped off its' hinges and was just lying there for a whole day. When my friend and her husband came over... Read more
Feeling lighter than air

Wow!! Was I surprised at the scale today! I was down 4.6 pounds, and it was like a miracle. After weeks of bloating and gaining in the suddenly humid weather, off it came, all of a sudden. I'm also beginning to think that my high stress levels ... Read more
RELEASING SOME STRESS TODAY
Tuesday, May 31, 2011      10 comments

TODAY IS A GOOD DAY BECAUSE I WON'T ALLOW IT TO GO BAD, EVEN THOUGH IT WANTS TO. I WENT TO THE MALL AND RETURNED A BUNCH OF CLOTHES I PURCHASED TWO WEEKS AGO ON A BUYING BINGE. WHEN I TOOK OUT MY WARM WEATHER CLOTHES AT HOME LAST WEEK, I REALI... Read more

I have chased a thin body for all of my life. The chase goes on. My weight has been the dominant issue in my life ALWAYS. I have ALWAYS been on a diet. I have ALWAYS tried every conceivable method at hand to achieve weight loss. I still ALWAYS w... Read more

I was inspired to write a little poem for a new Spark friend this morning, and I want to share it so that we can all see it when we need it, including me. I must be going into one of my poetry phases again! ... Read more
ONE DAY, ONE MEAL AT A TIME
Saturday, May 21, 2011      7 comments

Years ago I was on a food addicts eating plan and the reason it worked so well for me was that the foods were limited, as they are now on my WW Filling Foods plan, and I only had to get through one meal at a time. In thinking back, I can bring t... Read more
Onward with the day

This has become such a roller coaster ride lately, or is it a not-so-merry go-round??? The scale is so stubborn, almost as stubborn as the fat that will not leave my body. I need to get off the ride as badly as I need the fat to get off me. Mayb... Read more

GOOD GRIEF!! I tried on clothes at AVENUES yesterday on a shopping expedition to a mall nearby. I had coupons, so I had to use them. I took some summer weight pants and tops into the fitting room and proceeded to try on. I stayed sitting on my s... Read more
BooHoo to AHA!
Wednesday, May 11, 2011      5 comments

I was up one pound at my weigh in today. I started to take an emo dive but held off ' til I got home. Instead of getting depressed I went back over my tracker and discovered , Aha!, that I had taken more liberties with my extra points than I sho... Read more
It's all in my head
Sunday, May 08, 2011      8 comments

Well, I'm convinced of what was evident all throughout my decades of dieting, weight loss and gain-backs. It's all in my head. Right now my head is in a good place and temptation can't gain any space there. Sometimes there's nothing but sp... Read more
