Emotional Eating
Thursday, June 13, 2013      20 comments

I have been on an eating binge for over a week (or a month), avoiding the scales, avoiding mirrors - avoiding my emotions. I finally did get on the scales and I am shocked at the number. I don't know why I'm shocked. I can see it in the mirror... Read more
Coming back from the flu
Saturday, January 05, 2013      9 comments

This was a very different holiday season - I spent most of it in bed with a flu like illness. I can't remember being that sick for that long since I was a kid. Does this mean I now have a built in resistance to the flu - or does it mean I sho... Read more
Saying "Enough"

I went to the dentist the other day for my 6 month cleaning - yes, every 4 to 6 months I have my teeth cleaned. Although I brush and floss and rinse religiously, my teeth need to be scrapped and prodded and polished that often. I have a mouth ... Read more
The dreaded D word

No, I don't mean diet, I mean diabetes. My doctor called a couple of weeks ago to say my lab work showed early stages of the disease that my Mom has had for over 30 years. Type 2, adult onset. When I went in for a consultation with him, we agr... Read more
Feeling Fat
Friday, March 02, 2012      10 comments

For me this year, February was a month of not tracking food, not exercising regularly, and just giving in to cravings. Of course it shows on the scale - and on my body and in the way that my clothes fit. What happened? I don't know and I'm ... Read more
Happy Memorial Day?
Monday, May 30, 2011      3 comments

I have always found this to be a difficult holiday. When I was 12 my Dad died, suddenly and unexpectedly in mid May, of a heart attack. That Memorial Day we took flowers to his grave and it was the first time I'd been aware of the holiday. ... Read more
Praying for others
Saturday, May 21, 2011      2 comments

As one of 5 prayer chaplains at my church, I have the honor of praying with and for others. It sometimes amazes me when I sit with someone who has asked for prayer and hear the words coming out of my mouth. There is a sense that I have asked fo... Read more
How Does Your Garden Grow

Organic produce is always my first choice for fruits and vegetables. The Friday morning farmers market at a nearby park is a regular stop and I have recently discovered farm fresh eggs - oh, my, what a treat. I doubt I will buy eggs from the gro... Read more

Today was my friend's 74th birthday and I took her out to dinner after we saw "Water For Elephants". We have been doing this - taking each other out to dinner for birthdays - for more years than I can remember. I came home and checked the Red L... Read more

I just changed my weight ticker by adding 2 pounds to my current weight. This is one long, and sometimes frustrating, journey. I started with Weight Watchers on January 20th at 212 pounds. I haven't missed a meeting in all these 7 months and I a... Read more

It's Friday night - my daughter is here for dinner and a movie. We just watched "Milk" and now are watching an interesting little movie called "The Legend of 1900". I really like Netflix - I've seen movies I'd never heard of and movies I've wan... Read more

99 points again
Thursday, February 26, 2009      0 comments

I got to 99 again today and this is the last point I can get unless I do the one hundred posts for ten points thing. I'm not able to sit here at the computer that long! My weight was up 1.4 pounds at my WW weigh in - I expected it though af... Read more
