"Drop trou" has a new personal meaning to me
Thursday, October 20, 2011      1 comments

I first heard about Drop Trou when the Navy made me sit through a couple of venereal disease movies in basic training. Always good for a laugh because training movies were made long before they had mingled men and women in the Navy. The audien... Read more

Will I be able to eat just half?
Tuesday, October 18, 2011      4 comments

I'm attending a professional dinner meeting this evening. Meal is set -- some sort of chicken, veggies, salad, potatoes and a dessert. I can ignore the potatoes. I'm not concerned about the chicken or steam veggies or the salad. ... Read more

I was fixing something minor yesterday. It required me to be close to the floor. So I was on my knees. It was hard getting down to my knees, it was hard staying on my knees. It was hard getting back up.... Read more

I used to feel as if I had more control over the stress
Thursday, October 13, 2011      0 comments

In my 20's I felt more in control of the stressers in my life. Adding a spouse, children, another college degree seemed to be something I chose. Then their stresses became my stresses. I am trying to settle a disabled child -- remarkabl... Read more
Yikes I put on 2 pounds this week
Tuesday, October 11, 2011      1 comments

I had dessert 3 times this past week and splurged on bread and some macaroni. Near as I can tell, I did not exceed my calories, but somehow I did not feel as "sharp" last week. I felt lethargic a good deal of the time and a bit stressed by try... Read more
I get inspired by people's blog posts
Sunday, October 09, 2011      1 comments

I wasn't crazy about what I ate on Friday or Saturday -- stayed within the calories, but too much fat and sugar. And ... I can't get to Sunday pilates -- it's full. That means I have to inspire myself to do exercise. So this morning... Read more
The movers were late so I over indulged because I was antsy
Thursday, October 06, 2011      0 comments

The movers called at 11:30 to say it would be closer to 1:00 pm when they'd arrive. I was just about to have a bowl of celery soup (100 calories) when I decided that we would have the traditional moving day pizza. What a dumb idea. 800 calori... Read more

149 -- the plateau has moved. Now to get to 148
Tuesday, October 04, 2011      1 comments

149 has been important as it symbolizes going below 150 where I've been flatlined for about a month. 148 is important because I can claim the 20 pounds lost trophy.... Read more

The one extra pat of butter put me over
Thursday, September 29, 2011      0 comments

So I saved calories all day yesterday to enjoy dinner with my daughter. Veal marsala, salad, squash medley and tiramisu. Delicious. And the small piece of bread with 2 pats of butter -- wonderful treat. When I entered my calori... Read more
Traffic was so bad, I ate my lunch while commuting
Wednesday, September 28, 2011      0 comments

I enjoyed a 6:00 am pilates class and then stopped into Greenberry's for coffee. Then the downpour started and I knew the 20 minutes commute would now be 90 minutes. The woman in front of me got coffee and then impulsively added a chocolat... Read more
