Monday, November 08, 2010      2 comments

I'm counting backwards. I started at day 215, which is 215 days from my family reunion in June. I have 215 days to lose weight and get in shape. That sounds like plenty of time, for normal people, that is, but for me....well...I digress on occas... Read more

Hello Dear Residents of Reality, I have returned! I've been gone for some time. I've been busy traveling and living in the lovely land of Denial. I'm sure most of you have been there at least once, so I don't need to tell you how wonderful ... Read more

I had a lunch meeting today. Ohhh....the dreaded lunch meeting. Our meeting host doesn't know I'm working on a healthy eating plan. He doesn't know to instruct the caterers to broil, not fry....to offer the salad dressing on the side. But if I'm... Read more

Last night at the supermarket I was perusing the meat selections. As usual, my eating plan was on my mind as I was looking for lean cuts. An old Oprah Winfrey episode came to mind; the one when she had lost so much weight and came out onto the s... Read more
It's Me or the Cake

Don't get me wrong now. I have a very supportive family. At least they were supportive the first 100 times I said I was going to lose weight. I guess by now even the most diehard supporters have given up hope that I will actually ever slay the f... Read more
Closet History

I just couldn't resist stepping on the scales this morning before I left on my business trip. Although I just started the Spark diet program barely a week ago, I really felt I had already lost weight and was thrilled to see 2 pounds less on the... Read more
