  • The waiting (is the hardest part)

    "I can't wait until Christmas!" My 16-year-old routinely begins saying this in July. I always say wise, patient Mom things, like "Don't wish the summer away!",  and "It will be here before you know it!", and "Give it a rest, I'm already way behind an...

  • Only the shadow knows....

    Some of you have at times gently chided me for being too hard on myself, and that may or may not be true, but I don't think it is and this is why. Jung wrote, "The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can ...

  • Dear Food Network!

    Nobody made me fat -I did that beautifully all by myself. And while I do not look for excuses, I will blame you, dear Food Network, for at least 30 pounds which I am carrying on my hips, thighs, belly, and all the other good places I don't want to ta...

  • The Jerk Store called …

    … and they’re running out of you! That’s a line from a Seinfeld episode where George Costanza is ruing a missed opportunity at a zinger / comeback. He’s going over what he should have said in response to someone and seeing if he can get himself into ...

  • The Fat lady at the golf course

    I want to be able to walk outside with our dogs, but the thought terrifies me. I haven't made much progress. It only takes a few minutes on the treadmill and I am huffing and puffing like an old steam locomotive, and I have to take breaks to catch my...

    I often wonder why my husband never said anything about my weight gain. I doubled in weight and size over the years. Of course, he noticed so why didn't he say anything? The other night I watched him doze off. He looked tired - work had been crazy l...
