An absolutely rotten start to my day. Had to skip breakfast because I was getting blood tests -- no food or drink for ten hours prior to the test. That was difficult because I always eat within a half hour of rising. I felt dismal and was in a f... Read more

I'm so happy to be back at home! It takes leaving for a while to show me how much I love it here. My holidays were spent in the mountains, where my sister is raising her son, and where my mom relocated after she retired. The air is very thi... Read more

Thank you all so much for the wonderful support and kind words and advice and sympathy. Not just sympathy, but real empathy, because I know you've all been there or been in a similar struggle of your own. I planned to get back to each of yo... Read more

I'm eating for comfort sometimes, and for reward. I'm eating sweets. It doesn't feel good. There are some reasons, I'm sure, and I examine them to try to find solutions. 1) I miss summer fruit. It really did do away with my sugar cravi... Read more
