  • The Lady in the far distance!

    Sometimes, when I read a comment on my blog, and people call me inspirational, I feel like I should turn around and make sure they are not talking about someone else who is standing behind me. They cannot possibly mean me.  How did a fat lady like me...

  • Staying Strong

    I'm staying strong for my family.  When I became ill a little over 5 years ago it really scared me.  I was very dependent on my husband for the first time in my life and I didn't like it very much.  Once I was well again I got myself to the gym, chan...

  • 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

    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...

    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...

    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,...
