First ZOE thoughts on reports
Wednesday, June 09, 2021      1 comments

I got my results from my ZOE tests of blood sugar, fat, and microbiome. I was disappointed to find out that all the positive changes I’ve made over the years have not stopped my older body from declining in its ability to process sugar and... Read more

Because of some continued issues with lack of true hunger but still desire to eat and other reasons, I decided to invest in a research program (ZOE) that uses a continuous glucose monitor plus one blood test after two provided meals, and one "p... Read more

Friday, February 05, 2021      9 comments

A few updates on what my life is about when not focused on food. My pedometer tells me I am walking less on average than last year, I in 2020, I walked less than in 2019. There is really no good excuse in SoCal, as we can’t blame not getti... Read more
beyond food issues: first of many?
Tuesday, October 20, 2020      6 comments

I know that in treating eating disorders-compulsive overeater/binger was my habit-, one principal that I agree with very much is expanding the image of oneself, and the habits, beyond the disorder label. I know it can be a fine balance, but a wo... Read more

Sunday, September 27, 2020      8 comments

I have been giving myself full permission to eat everything in any amount except my old binge foods and have been experimenting with snacking. (I have been eating mostly at meal time for years and have been eliminating more foods, getting rather... Read more
food freedom- can't be covered in one blog
Friday, September 11, 2020      5 comments

Being able to be relaxed and at peace in my eating has been a central idea for decades. It's a complicated issue to me as I age because I see that there are a fair number of people who have been relaxed in their eating- never really questioning ... Read more
reasons and reasoning
Thursday, July 09, 2020      8 comments

I wrote a long response to someone on a team I lead and realized I was sermonizing so I'm moving it here. I promise it did relate to an expressed problem, though come to think of it, I'm not sure my opinion about what to do about it was asked fo... Read more
a COVID19 death near the family, et al
Friday, March 20, 2020      7 comments

As of last night, there had been only 19 deaths in CA, but one of them has affected my extended family by marriage. My sister's niece-in-law had married late and married a man older than she is. She went through all kinds of fertility treatments... Read more
"Honeymoon" with new macronutrient ratios
Tuesday, January 14, 2020      8 comments

Before I had my turnaround ten years ago. the most satisfying meals I learned to have from my failed diets were from plans that were approximately 40/30/30 carb/protein/fat. However, I supplemented those meals with sweets binges and sometimes sa... Read more
Entering the new 2020's
Monday, January 06, 2020      13 comments

I am feeling the most optimistic I have in a long time, though I have felt this way before only to have it melt away, unlike any fat from my stores. Boy, I hope I"m not wrong. But as I get older, the stakes are higher, since my body has less tim... Read more
on Paul McCartney and serendipity
Monday, June 24, 2019      15 comments

This has nothing to do with eating. I splurged on a ticket to see Paul McCartney. It was outrageously expensive- for me, at least-, esp. since I bought it the day of the concert, but I rarely went to concerts when I was young. Too poor. ... Read more
not going commando on my food, et al
Wednesday, May 29, 2019      3 comments

Was gone for the weekend out of state which involved 930 miles round trip. Some beautiful scenery but traffic I should have guessed at on the way back, plus some upsetting news on the way, led to my forgetting to top off the tank before returnin... Read more
A death even closer, kind of
Sunday, October 14, 2018      16 comments

I got a call at around 2 a.m. on my landline Thursday morning. It sometimes rings like that in the middle of the night, but nothing comes of it. This time, it was the coroner in a city near where my brother lives-now lived. She let me know that ... Read more
A death rather close
Sunday, June 24, 2018      14 comments

I was reminded yesterday that so many of my small transgressions of eating, which can occupy so much of my attention, are small potatoes in comparison to the reason I was up so late last night. I "attended" the class by webcast version yesterday... Read more

Had lunch with friend, leftovers from her ST. Pat's party. Delicious! Much richer than usual, but did not feel very full and even had an early dinner out. A Denny's breakfast--love pancakes-combo, but a surprisingly modest one. No syrup- I save ... Read more
