I've noticed that I've gone from being a very mild-mannered calm person to a person who gets angry fairly easily. This has been going on for a couple of years now. I can be feeling pretty good about life in general, and someone says or doe... Read more

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. I'm depressed today, but can't even articulate what it's about. Just feeling blue.... I'm tired every Friday, as I have a dance class on Thursday nights from 7:30 to 10:30 or later. As the teacher, ... Read more

Another out of town weekend behind me, this one spent with the SO. Always difficult to deal with food issues, as his diet is just atrocious, and his weight reflects it. I worry about his health, but there is nothing I can do about it. I have ... Read more

I've noticed I'm hungry late at night, especially after my 3+ hour dance class. I usually grab a piece of fruit, or make a small salad. And that just doesn't do it somehow. I've also been having problems from eating certain fruit (plums and c... Read more

I visited my mother this past weekend, and we spent an hour looking at pictures of my son's wedding. Not a word was said about my youngest's weight, although she did worry that the next oldest had lost a lot of weight. A different perspective,... Read more

Two nights in a row now I've had interesting dreams. The first night, I didn't even think I was asleep. But there I was walking into a room with a television mounted on the wall, and that television was showing some changing information ... Read more

I give up. End of story. I can accept not losing weight while I rearrange my diet to include more protein. I can't accept gaining weight. I know I've been scrupulous about noting what I'm eating. When I didn't have access to a compu... Read more

I was anxious yesterday, and couldn't seem to get enough to eat. The result was eating at the top of my range, something I haven't done before. I'm not counting days that I didn't record anything because I was on the road and eating out with c... Read more

I was packing last night - leaving for NY today until Sunday. Business and a little pleasure combined. The challenge for this trip is that I'm visiting existing clients - business casual - and meeting a new client - who knows what? But it... Read more

So I started the day by balancing my checkbook. A little odd, I'll admit, but I'm a morning person and this seems just fine an activity for the early hours of the day. I noticed next payday is the 14th and that rang a bell. The 14th? Oh ... Read more

I'm going forward, day by day, in spite of very slow results, if any. Judging by my clothes, no results at all. But I'm feeling a little better So, I guess I won't look any better for my son's wedding next week, but that's OK. It's not a... Read more

...another disappointment. Didn't weigh today, but still feel bloated. I put on a dress and sure enough, it's still not looser. I shouldn't complain, as it isn't tight. But I was hoping to feel a slight difference. Is that what's meant... Read more

I knew not to weigh myself. How can I do what I'm supposed to and gain a pound? Here's where it becomes really tough. Which of my goals is the most important? Nutrition should trump the rest, and I guess I'm successful in increasing the ... Read more
