There were many things said in my house this weekend: 2 year old: Open the cabinet. I wanna see. Pop pop sleeping. I need more, no BIG more craisins! (accompanied with lots of whine) I want ipad. I want trucks. I love you I wan... Read more

I survived the funeral yesterday. Drove 3 hours in the snowstorm. Nothing like old Philly Italians to give me things to see! My future ex-sister in law and I got along great. My brother was a wreck, feeling so out of place. All kinds of endings ... Read more

I visit my dear coz in Florida almost every year and talk once a week. We talk of my moving down although DH is not keen on the idea, needing to be close to children. Once the baby is here we shall see them less and less as their lives take on... Read more

Magically my ticker says 0 today. I should have found the right snacks. I had 30 days. I found some I like, some I like more and some I REALLY like. I am not supposed to eat snacks all day! In a small way I got a hold of my eating an... Read more

Yesterday started as any typical day. I get up at 5 read, the news, Spark, etc then have a good breakfast in peace. I get DH up at 8ish and his morning routine takes about 2 hours and now it's 11 and he looks ready to fall back asleep. What do... Read more

216.8 pounds. I refuse to round up. The last time I placed an official weight on SP was 12/2/15 and I was 209. It took 2 months to put on 9 pounds. Since I have been home with DH I have lost the extensive walking I was doing at work. The... Read more

This is a tough one. It's not that it would be easier if I was working; I'd still be snacking when I got home. As long as I have the psychological need to have something, I'm going to have something easy and healthy. Chewing gum is not an op... Read more
Sitting around doing "nothing" made me feel yucky (for a better word).

My intention yesterday was to get DH out of the house and on a road trip by 11 am to get him moving. That didn't happen because he fell into a really deep sleep for hours. Once he's down like that there's no sense in trying to go out. However,... Read more
