  • Sorry- I’m not sorry I’m sorry.

    I can’t really say how many times a day I hear “don’t apologize” or “stop apologizing”. It’s at least once. And if you hear something at least 365 days a year you know- it’s something that’s probably a problem. From a very young age- I had it made...

  • Trying to Find a Picture

    I spent some time the other day digging through old albums and photo boxes. The crisp kodak paper still firm as I flipped by them with my finger tips. An outdated card file in a digital world. Old images of an amazing childhood and life to be envied....

    Although they've been around for a long time, tattoos are pretty popular these days. For us weight-losers a tattoo is pretty enticing now that we don't have to cover ourselves in XXXL t-shirts and stretch pants. It could be a celebration.At 57 I got ...

  • Don't even want to talk about it

    I am a person who thoroughly enjoys the balance of life. I enjoy carefully planning meals so that my macros are beautiful as much as I enjoy a meal that says “forget it”. I enjoy a glass of wine or a lovely stout just as much as I enjoy the good I am...

  • Real talk - its too long for a status.

    January 1st was the beginning of a new binge free streak for me one that I can proudly say has gone 220 complete days.  At that time I made one promise to myself and that was to learn to love me, the me that is right now, not to wait until I lost wei...

  • Assumptions.

    You know what they say about them, right? There's a reason they say that. Please don't assume you know what information a person has, before you feel the need to "disclose" things to them. Basically, what I'm saying here, as nicely as I can, is pleas...

  • The Battle I Didn't Choose

    My name is David and the doctor says I have cancer. Still. I have had it before. I had surgery a few times. Each time there has been success. It set me back in my training, I missed a few marathons, but I emerged with a normally functioning life.Last...

  • Life can change in the blink of an eye

    Spending two weeks in the hospital after 4 ER visits in one week, and being relegated to the couch after being used to putting in 40-55 miles per week running really changes your perspective. You learn to appreciate the things you took for granted. T...

  • The Wave

    The tides.  The ebb and flow.  Water comes in and then returns.  Waves bring with them an ever changing collection of gifts from the sea:  shells, rocks pummeled smooth by the water, and sometimes, when the water is angry, a fallen ancient tree.  Whe...

    It's simple. I want to change the world. But the world is full of  countless hordes of brilliant failures and charismatic losers. Day dreamers who talk. Wishing on stars while stagnant on earth. I have been one of them. I see the irony. This grand st...

    Part of my new "Thinking Thin" plan is I've stopped being so obsessive about weighing myself.  The downside to that is the fact that since I am not tracking and not counting . . . it's kind of scary to step on the scale!  The scale was always my whip...
