Yesterday I weighed and measured myself. Even if my weight was higher, my measurements were the same as last years week #4 where I was the same weight -- how can that be? Pause here to let thought processes go. Yeh, I thought it was body fat ... Read more

Under a beautiful or dreadful, depending on your viewpoint, blanket of snow -- I'm been isolated. It has been beautiful in the most visual sense. Our back table was piled barely to 12 inches with the repeated white drifts. I scattered s... Read more

Yesterday I was not brave enough to weigh myself, but then I don't really need to the clothes and how I'm feeling tell the story. Yesterday I tried. I logged on and logged my food. It basically wasn't a horrible day. I also logged exercise. ... Read more
Lost in Silence

Truth. What an amazing word. I can remember a time questioning how kind it was to be truthful and now I realize that speaking truth is the only thing that can keep you out of trouble. Truth admits your weakness and refuses to let it rule ... Read more

My uncles funeral was this last Saturday. In a small way I wanted to run the other direction. My father's side of the family was always more absolute religion (how many times do I have to prove to HUMANS that I've accepted Jesus as my personal... Read more
