I admit that I have been comfortable in other areas of my life (just oddly enough, not comfortable with my body size). I am not the type who makes New Year's resolutions, nor do I necessarily feel that I need to wait to start or stop something j... Read more

Can't even begin to capture all the changes that happened since my last entry. But the important thing is that I managed to find my way back to the boards where I don't feel so alone. Biggest change is that as of yesterday, I have decided ... Read more

My life has changed drastically since I've been out on medical leave since the end of September. I spiraled into a deep depression, so taking care of myself fell by the wayside. The doctors have yet to find the right combination of medicine th... Read more

DW just called to say that she spoke to the animal control office and Foxy has been found. DW said that was the LAST place that she called on Monday, but since no one answered, she left a message. They didn't check their voicemail until today,... Read more

Approximately five months ago, we acquired our then five month old beagle, Foxy. I happened to be walking her through the park one Saturday morning, and saw this woman riding her bicycle while her dog was trotting alongside her. Even though sh... Read more

Yesterday afternoon, I was so excited after achieving my 10% goal. But my balloon was QUICKLY deflated when an Executive Assistant used a term that had a very racist connotation. Granted, I know the context in which she said it...and while she... Read more

We were all set to go camping on Saturday morning. I went to my last swimming lesson and we headed on the highway to Maine shortly thereafter. We got an hour away when an "A/T Oil Check Temp" light came on in the truck. We pulled over on the ... Read more

111 was the number staring at me from the computer screen. Unfortunately, that is NOT within my height’s healthy BMI range (I’m 5’6”). It is NOT the amount of pounds I’ve lost thus far (though perhaps could be by the time I reach my final goal... Read more

The weather was originally forecasted to hit the high 90s, so naturally I wanted to find the coolest & most comfortable outfit that is also appropriate for the office. I'm wearing a skirt (which I haven't worn in over 4 years), and a lightweigh... Read more
