  • Starting Over

    I hate to admit it, but after six years of running and watching my food like a nervous teen awaits a prom date, I am starting over. The broken leg has became the most disruptive event in my journey to fitness. I haven't gained back all my weight - no...

  • Can't stop myself. Sing to the tune of "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"

      I’m a mommy fighting flabby arms Want small clothes that fit on me all right Down my weight begins to creep While my chair pose gets more deep And my calorie and exercising goals in mind I keep   I’ll be a mommy getting oohs and ahhs One day when m...

  • What a Let Down

    I like to save calories for a sweet treat at the end of the day, like chocolate, candy, or something I've recently baked.So today I was really looking forward to the cordial cherries and cordial blueberries (new to me) that I bought today, because th...

  • Sometimes, I do mind!

    “Do you mind…?” These three little words often make me feel uncomfortable. I have been raised to be polite and kind to others -and I am- but sometimes I feel that this question it’s used to take advantage of me, and I don’t like that. “Do you mind….”...

  • A Peek at my Peak!

    PC: BA HIKER."So what level is this"? I wanted to know what to expect. "Oh it’s average to medium", she said. "It's totally doable” she said. I looked up. I wasn't convinced. I took my last puff, tossed my cigarette butt and we started off. Straight ...

  • Well, Santa! What do you think?

    In a few days, my husband will start panicking, and he will ask me what I want for Christmas. It's every year the same. He has no idea what to get me, mainly because I really don't want anything. I have everything I need, and we are fortunate enough ...

  • Time, Weight Loss and Life

    I'm not really sure where I'm going with this but as I age I keep thinking about how time seems so long some days and so short other days.  My weight loss (about 70 lbs) took about 4 years, lots of stops and starts, but I never really gained more tha...

  • I Think I Need a New Tattoo - Not Dying Reward

    Today I am off to the hospital for a bone scan. Later this week I will get the results. There is a lot more health stuff to do before the year ends. I have to go back for an ultrasound of my heart. It’s my six year follow up to congestive heart failu...

  • Mind over Matter

    So I’m doing C25K – Couch to 5K. It’s a running program that claims to get couch potatoes from the couch to running a 5k in 9 weeks while having you do three sessions of walking and running a week. This is my third attempt at C25k – I failed my previ...

  • Just one, please!

    Last week I stepped outside at lunch and stopped at my all-time favorite food truck. I hadn't been there in months. The guy who owns it is a genius, he comes up with the most fun lunch meals, and people wait in line to try his newest creations. A gre...

  • Obsession

    Now that I've been back on MFP for a few weeks, familiar patterns are emerging. Weighing chicken breast. Weighing everything. Medium peach or small peach? Counting the slices in a pound of deli cheese. Dirtying up all of my measuring spoons every day...

  • My 4th Time (Hospice)

    This is the 4th time in my life that I've been the responsible party for someone beginning hospice care.  It's such a wonderful and helpful resource but so sad and depressing at the same time.  My first experience was with my sister-in-law 32 years a...

    i did it! I lost 40 pounds. 40.2 to be exact of this morning, and, you know what, it feels great! I still have 11.8 to get to my goal, but that seems so achievable now! I have learned to love fruits and vegetables more than I thought possible. I am m...

  • The Letter

    It's time to plan my family photo and letter for the Christmas cards I still stubbornly insist on sending every year. Most of the letter is routinely taken up with the goings-on of my two kids and husband. I can usually get away with saying almost no...

  • I'm Different

    Something weird has happened a few times now. I like to make a big salad for my lunch some days, and I will spend a while prepping and logging it. I just made a salad with chicken, wing sauce, lettuce, celery, homemade ranch, bacon, some toasted pank...

  • Army St.

    I’ve told you before about my hour-long commute. A few years ago, that commute used to be from Hillsdale, CA to San Francisco. I used to take the Caltrain into San Francisco. Every day, as we approached San Francisco, at around Army St. (Technically,...

  • Hold your horses!

    Someone left a comment on my blog, stating that all fat people are unhappy and it made me frown a bit. If all fat people are unhappy, does that mean all skinny people are happy? I don't think so.  I was a happy fat woman, still am, both, fat and hap...

  • Come on Baby Light my Fire ..

    This phrase is all but common on MFP. Every other day (or if you do a search) you see the same plea again and again – “Need Motivation”, “Fell off the wagon, need motivation”, “Gained X pounds, need motivation”. To those that just need tips or help a...

  • The fat lady in maintenance mode

    "Thanksgiving is just one day," someone wrote, and I didn't leave a comment, just grabbed my keyboard and tiptoed away. Yes, I suppose that might be true, but not in our family. We are Holiday-crazy and Thanksgiving is the official start of the Holi...
