My mom broke her shoulder and her knee. Dad's stepping up, but I'm having to be firm about boundaries. For example, I can work from home to be closer to their house, but I have no fantasies I can get stuff done at their house. I live i... Read more

The scale this morning danced around 219. I had a salty day yesterday (viva la ham!), but I'll call this whole goal thing confirmed. I updated my front page with a list goals in tens. I feel safer having goals now that I've met a big one. ... Read more

So, for a week to ten days, I handled the food end of life by eating just about anything. I was going to say "anything I wanted," but the reality is that the food itself wasn't really what I wanted. I wanted comfort and security and easy. And we... Read more

Well, after a week of experimenting with things I thought make life easier, I am here to confirm: Comfort food isn't that comforting. Eating out isn't that convenient: if I'm feeling poorly enough that I have to talk myself into showe... Read more

I spent Saturday shuttling between errands, puppy tiring, chores, and the hospital. Somehow, even with better boundary setting, I have become the family communication hub and the Officer of Thoughtfulness. My dad tried to pull his "you're so muc... Read more

I am so hesitant of any self-treatment at any age for issues with bowel issues, and the lack thereof. I have a relative who had part of her bowel removed yesterday. She'd been self-treating constipation through her own dietary tweaks and wi... Read more

So, I missed my running clinic last night, because of my sleeping on my half-sick day. I slept right through it! I felt a little weird leaving the house to workout on a day when I missed work due to illness. But I did it! I programmed up th... Read more

Yesterday was pretty good until the mid afternoon, when I started getting this crazy level of fatigue. The cement-shoes kind of fatigue. I've been so energetic for weeks, it was almost insulting. I tried to push through the cement shoes with exe... Read more

I told myself I probably wouldn't belong. That I had the wrong stuff. Or that if I showed up with the "right stuff" I'd be presumptuous. That I'm too unfit to join everyone else, who clearly deserves to be there. I told myself that if I sho... Read more

I've generally had a skewed relationship with food, comfort, luxury, sufficiency. And in the past six weeks, I can't say that I haven't had a differently skewed relationship with food. Once again, I point to the whole team-based weight-loss... Read more
