Once again, I wrote a blog, only to have it disappear into cyberspace. So I closed down my computer and went outside and walked the extra 120 steps that I promised myself to try today. That's two round trips up and down my wheelchair ramp to my ... Read more

I need to blog to keep afloat right now, and journalling my thoughts and feelings at a time like this causes me to write like my hand is tripping over my fingers! You know, the old phrase from years ago when people used to still write, "I can't ... Read more

Coming back to life today after a cookie binge night. It was the second night in a row that I polished off a (small, thank goodness) box of special cookies. Now they are gone, AND I'M SO GLAD. I finished the night with a capful of Pepto Bismol, ... Read more

Just stopped by a team member's page to congratulate her on a tremendous weight loss success. I am really happy for her. My weight loss is not happening right now. I have been collecting fluids in my legs and feet, and the sack that is my hu... Read more

When we are full-on into a binge, how many times can we remember what the trigger was? It was probably around the time of "whatever-it-was!" etc,etc,etc. I'm NOT into a binge right now, THANK GOD, and haven't done that in many months, or even ye... Read more

I had a doctor's appointment today, so I missed my regular Weight Watchers meeting, but that was okay with me! I got together with my girlfriends at our usual lunch retreat anyway, so it was still a good day. I didn't worry about missing the ... Read more

I wrote a lengthy blog last week which promptly disappeared into Cyberspace when I mistakenly hit the wrong key on my keyboard. Whatever happened, the writing of the blog was therapy enough for me because I felt better even after the printed wor... Read more

Last night I attended a newly organizing Weight Watchers100 lbs. plus meeting. It's an extra meeting just for those who have lost 100 lbs. and those who need to. I attended a similarly focused meeting a few years ago, but then it was disbanded ... Read more

Remember when Jackie Gleason used to say, "Pow! Right in the kisser!" ?? Well, along came a sudden hunger and it said those exact words to me! Since my kitchen is free of just about all unmentionable goodie treats, I was hard pressed to find ... Read more
