Tuesday, January 16, 2018 4 comments
Wow. I haven’t blogged in forever. Since 2014 to be precise. How time flies! I think I’ve lost the same 20 pounds at least 5 times since then. Twenty seems to be my trigger number. As soon as I lose it, I start to self-sabotage. In fact, I’m... Read more

Let's face it. The last 5 months of my life have been pretty sucktastic and stressful. October: Had to move dad into an assisted living facility. December: Mom diagnosed with breast cancer. January: Mom's surgery. (lumpectomy which got... Read more
Doh! Guilty, Guilty, Guilty!

As I mentioned in my last blog, I'm trying to incorporate exercise into my life as simply a healthy habit and not just a means to lose weight (though I definitely need it for that too). The problem is that when I "mess" up my eating, I tend to... Read more

Despite my warning on my home page…I blinked. Complacency got me, then life piled on some major stress…and I gained 30 of the 20 I lost. LOL Yep, I gained what I lost and then some. I seem to do that several times a year. I don’t do fad diets... Read more
The Scale Isn't Necessarily Evil
Saturday, September 14, 2013 4 comments
The scale gets a bad rap. The scale is nothing more than a tool that provides us with just one of many measurements we assimilate. We are the ones who hang our happiness on what the scale tells us. I know some people say stay away from the... Read more

This will probably not be a terribly interesting blog for many, but I just want to throw it out there and find out what others know about this. I’m reading this book (The Science of Skinny:Start Understanding Your Body’s Chemistry—and Stop ... Read more

I have a little crush on Orville Rogers. When I first read the title about a 95-year old breaking records in his age group, my first thought was: "In his age group? Well, just getting off the sofa would do that, right?" I read the article ... Read more
Trying something "new"
Friday, June 14, 2013 3 comments
I really blew it. I gained back all but about 4 of the 32 pounds that I'd lost over a year. Worse yet, I gained it all back in about 3 months of stress induced, mind-numbing binges. It's all a haze. Over the last month, I've been slowly re-i... Read more
