Saturday, September 13, 2014      2 comments

One thing in the way of sustainable weight loss for me has been years and years of intractable back pain, compliments of an auto accident. I won't do drugs, and nothing else was working. Being a mere female, I never warranted a proper diagnosi... Read more
Goals and Keeping Them
Tuesday, July 08, 2014      1 comments

So much for my once-a-week blog entry goal! Oh, well. Seriously, I was just too busy being to be writing. You see, my husband has decided he doesn't want to be married anymore. The hardest part, at least at the moment, is figuring ou... Read more

We are blessed to have a drive-in movie theatre just a few minutes up the road. Last night they were showing the unbeatable combination of "Maleficient" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." I recommend them both. We took our own fo... Read more
All You Can Eat

Went to the Chinese buffet with the family tonight. That is such a danger zone! First, there is the "I paid $$XX for this, so I have to get my money's worth" problem. Then, of course, there is just all that food! So I started wit... Read more
Time to Change Things Up
Saturday, May 24, 2014      2 comments

I see a lot of use of fat-free and sugar-free products here. That isn't surprising. They do cut calories. But at what cost? Every time I read the label of one of these products, I find added ingredients that are far worse than my "muffin top... Read more

Some days just aren't worth discussing. Suffice it to say, I could have twisted someone's arm for a chocolate bar! But the feeling passed. Losing weight is hard work. Keeping it off will be work. Carrying the extra weight around is wors... Read more
Dining Out, Eating Healthy, Counting Calories, Win!
Tuesday, May 13, 2014      1 comments

Today is my son's birthday. We went out to dinner at a very nice Italian restaurant, one we'd not been to before. Dining out is always a challenge, isn't it? Since I'm keeping things simple by eschewing flour and sugar, that meant no past... Read more

Overcoming limitations
Wednesday, May 07, 2014      3 comments

Not going to add exercise at this stage. Fibromyalgia makes it less that pleasant, and plantar fasciitis has taken all the fun out of walking. I'll be where I can swim soon, though, and that will be nice. End of week one, lost 4 ounces. ... Read more
Falling apart, getting it together
Wednesday, April 30, 2014      3 comments

My life is falling apart in more ways than I care to think about. So I need something, anything, positive to focus on and maybe succeed at. Losing this doggone weight is a good place for me to begin. It keeps me centered, forces me to live co... Read more
