Sunday, August 26, 2018      18 comments

Saturday, August 25, 2018      24 comments

Tuesday, August 21, 2018      18 comments

Monday, August 20, 2018      25 comments

Mega-Thanks for Reality-Basing Me Yesterday
Saturday, August 18, 2018      16 comments

I know better after all this time on SP (almost 10 years!!!). Already understanding all the reasons you told me in your responses yesterday did not prevent me from reacting with my heart instead of my head. I never even owned a scale until com... Read more

Wednesday, August 15, 2018      14 comments

What I've Learned from Watching the Bears at Brooks Falls in Alaska - This will Change my Life
Monday, August 13, 2018      12 comments

I've decided to take a page from the bear book and make my body use the remaining fat on my bones first whenever hunger strikes. That is, I've put myself into voluntary hibernation in a sense that will require my body to use what is already ava... Read more
