I just got off the phone with my prayer partner, who is also a "woman of size." I was so proud of her because she is making a comeback from a huge weight re-gain after a 100 pound weight loss the year before. After that sunshine event, a lot of ... Read more

On Monday and Tuesday I had needle injection surgery for Dupetryn's Contracture in my right hand on my pinky finger. It's just "a little member " of my body, but it has really upset the apple cart this week. As I look at it, it's swollen and bru... Read more

It was amazing to me to see how far I have come in my healthy weight loss journey. Today we had our yearly "tasting party" at my weight Watchers' meeting. Most everyone made their versions of low-point snacks, very, very sweet and very, very tem... Read more

I want to share my battle with the food devil yesterday. Maybe it will help someone. I don't know where my endless hunger came from all of a sudden. I do recognize a symptom, however, after living all these years in my mind and body: I can su... Read more

Is this the real me?

GOOD HEAVENS! Can this be the real me? Have I been so medicated with food all these years that the real me has been so hidden? I think Yes! Do I like her? Sometimes, not that much. I have buttons that can be pushed and when they are, I am capab... Read more

I still want to be like everyone else, which is what everyone else wants to be, too! It's not easy to break from the pack and be who you really are, especially if you're not sure who you really are. I'm older now, so I should have it figured out... Read more

It's time for changes in my weight loss plan. I want to say "DIET" but that is so not okay anymore!! Not PC. But I did better when I thought of my weight loss as a diet; but then I always gained the weight back. Now I just don't lose to begin wi... Read more

Yesterday is gone, forget it. The mantra I need to repeat today. Remember Lot's wife. She looked back and turned into a pillar of salt. Biblical scholars debate what kind of salt(stone?) that was, but I have my own opinion: I think the salt was ... Read more

Isn't it amazing? When you're on a roll, you can't imagine not losing weight every week at weigh-in, and life seems so good. You're at peace with the world, and almost no-one can burst your little happy bubble! You ask yourself "Why can't I alwa... Read more

I have to keep blogging while I'm on a roll! I need the reassurance and to keep motived. AHA! I ate the second half of my lunchtime omelette for dinner last night along with a pan "fried" sliced sweet potato drizzled with sugar-free maple sy... Read more

I had several of those AHA! moments today! One light bulb seemed to inspire another. I went to lunch with my Weight Watcher friends after the morning meeting as usual, but the place was really crowded and our 14 person group had to wait a while ... Read more
